Another fine shot Mr Bassie......that little Toy Camera is a jewel in your hands! Excellent detail and the Toy Camera mode really makes the subject "pop".

Seems to me that all of us with Toy Cameras, of any brand, have more fun, take more shots and get more enjoyment than those lugging around a big DSLR and whining about not yet having a FF camera? Certainly that is not the case 100% of the time...we do require our DSLR occasionally, but most of the time our Toy Cameras are more than adequate.

Regards!

You wouldn't waste storage on your DSLR SD card for this...but with a Toy Camera, you will shoot anything and everything! Toy Cameras are not particular, don't beg for pixel peeping, and are ready in an instant to shoot anything you desire!

X20 Toy Camera mode


Regards!

Paul....They look good to me. Nice color for sure! Better than my shot of some old boots.....but it's cold here this morning, and at your place up the road....and these fleece lined boots are toasty warm!

Toy Cameras are great for shooting Toy Cars! I took my Toy Car up to the Metroplex yesterday to have the windshield replaced. Got a lateral crack on our trip up to the Dakotas.
I am very particular about service on the Toy Car, and I can recommend Safelite nationwide auto glass replacement. They did a superb job, like new, no mess, no damage while replacing, and no complaints from me!

You guys need to post more! Maybe I can start your day off better today with some biscuits with a slice of cheese on them and some milk?

X10


Eat up, then get out there with your Toy Cameras and shoot something!

Regards!

Looks pretty good to me! I've been busy with the Canon p&s this month - here's a few, xposted from elsewhere in the forums...

Love that 2nd shot Paul, it's what owning a Toy Camera is all about! Nice catch!

First shot? Water tower? What are those 'boxes" on the side?

Regards!

Thanks Rupert! The quality isn't stellar in the 1st one, as I was at some distance & had to zoom, but the pocket camera got the job done! Not sure about those boxes on the water tower - I think there may be cameras up there. Right next to the tower, out of view are some weather radar arrays, recently added. Here's another view, taken the same evening. I'm missing these warm autumn evenings already

Here is Luna shot in Toy Camera mode. She is a tough one to photograph. Another example of how toy cameras help you get pictures of skittish subjects.

Paul....I can remember Grapevine when people got their water by going down to the creek with a bucket!

MrBassie.....Love it! You are certainly making that X30 shine! The goat is a member of the family....sort of like Otis is around here? Is he a friendly goat?

Regards!
