My New Camera...
Look at this detail in this picture, looks like the spider is coming off the book cover, you can hear my Dr Pepper fizzing!! The clarity is awesome.
It was a beautiful red Olympus Tough TG-610. I installed this and that. I charged the battery, set the time, set everything just the way I wanted it...I thought. This was the camera of my dreams, shock proof up to five feet, water proof up to sixteen feet. I had visions of swimming with the catfish taking pictures as they fed. This beauty had 14 mega pixels, super max zoom, panoramic shooting, macro setting and this baby would fit in my pocket! I could take a humming bird at a thousand yards and make it look like it was hanging in midair!!! This camera rocked.
However, this camera is not for a novice like me. Hell, this camera is smarter than me, it can talk in fifteen languages I've never seen. I was ready to shoot it. I pushed something. It started talking in Arabic, I think. Not really talking but the reading was in this strange language I didn't know...and no way to know how to change it back...BECAUSE I CAN'T READ IT!!!
I read the book, which I had to download (in English) I searched for directions to change language, no results found! Could not ever get it registered on line, it kept starting over and over and over again. Emailed Olympus and they said they would contact me as soon as possible. I replied, it better be quick because this is going back into the box and into the mail!
I am now headed to QVC to rate this fine beauty of a camera. Let's just say, I am VERY glad it's shockproof.
