Camera Woes

So, yesterday I couldn't do a proper post because I misplaced my camera cord...well, I found it last night, only to discover that my ancient digital camera is not compatible with Windows 7 on my new computer. Now apparently I have to buy something called a card reader, before I can upload anymore pics. Oh well, at least this solution is far cheaper than having to buy a new camera.  For anyone who's interested, I've used a Canon Powershot A40 for almost 10 years.  Although it is bulkier than the new cameras, I'm pretty attached to it. When it got ruined on my trip to Boston last year, I ordered the same model off ebay for $50 because I had no desire to shell out for a new camera. We actually bought a new camera a couple years ago and ended up giving it to a relative because we didn't think the picture quality was as good!

Having said that, if the card reader thingy doesn't work out, do you have any camera recommendations? What do you use?

The snow is coming down again here...looks like we will be spending the weekend staying cozy indoors. Hope you have a great weekend!


  1. I feel for you. I am terribly un-techie. We just switched to digital from film last year, so that tells you how backwards I am! Good luck with everything.

  2. I am so sorry for your troubles...I hope you will get things worked out soon! Crossing fingers!

  3. Oh, sorry bout that :( Good luck with your new camera. I use my iphone because I do not have a camera. One day hopefully :)
