My new toy... AKA birthday present

DH took me shopping. After we bought my requested new toy, he told me "Happy Birthday. Unless I think of anything better between now and your birthday, this is your present." Amusing huh! Once the words Happy Birthday left his lips he put the thought right out of his head! LOL!! My actual BD isn't until next week but we seem to have been celebrating it for a couple of weeks now!

I love, love this camera (Olympus Stylus 7000). Perhaps I never knew what my other camera could do, but this one has so many functions that I'm having to learn how to use it. Perhaps it will lead me to posting more often!a>

These two pictures were taken about 1" away from the fabric.

This was about 2 " away

This one was just taken as close as I could get and still keep the picture in frame. I
I'm thinking there will be some incredible quilting photos coming soon.....

That looks like a very nice camera. One of the biggest benefits of these small cameras is you can just throw it in your purse and always be able to take pictures when you need to. Oh, and don't you just love macro mode? For some reason, the photos I take in macro seem to have truer colors than the others. So I plan to zoom in often. Even when the work doesn't warrant that close a look!
