virginiag2-

I shoot with lots of cameras. For example I use a Kodak Z-1012 for all of my E-Bay photos. I also shoot with the Olympus E-620.

Kodak's Z1012 is a great megazoom! I would not mind one of those. Rich colors and a great feel in your hands. I had wanted the z980 and still do! Nice megazoom. I wanted it earlier this year when Costco had a special on it, but it sold out quickly. I was bummed.

The Kodak Z-980 is still very much on sale on E-Bay, as is the Z-1012.

Default If you don't mind refurbished

Buy.com is selling Z980's for just over $290, shipped. Kodak "reconditioned" cameras used to have a one year warranty. If you are interested, you can check it out at:

Wear are you now?

Sarah, I found a shop that had the e-620. It is my least favorite shop. I am not feeling well, but when I feel a little better, I will go there and hold it. I want to hold them all and shoot with them, but will have to go to two different stores. I refuse to spend much time at the one store. Long story.

The other store knows more about Nikons and cameras themselves. I trust them more.
I live by the water down on south street in Manhattan. It is quitier as every one leave downtown after 5pm and pretty quite on the weekend.

I do not care for LI, not my cup of tea.

I instructed upstate in the hudson valley, love the scenery, but it is the only place where two people running though each other are both running uphill. It was just to quite after dark.

That about sizes it up! I lived at 14th and 3rd. It was interesting at all times.

That looks like it is where there had been a Jamaican restaurant. It was a great hole in the wall. When I was there, NYU had not bought up the block. It was a tad seedy actually. I loved it. I really miss it. Prior to that I lived at the Sloane House YMCA on 34th. It is now a coop! That was interesting. I spent lots of time walking the island from South to North or vice versa.
