We all love to sit around and share memories from happy times in our lives and nothing adds color to those stories in a way that a picture can. Cameras have come a long way in what seems like a very short period of time. I’m sure those of us of a certain age can still remember taking film into a local pharmacy or superstore and being told to return on a week for the finished prints. We can also remember the excitement when the Polaroid camera came into being, forcing us to stand there shaking a grey piece of paper until the picture came to life.
Next thing we knew, the one week wait for pictures was cut back to an hour and film was replaced by a digital card. The digital camera was like a Polaroid on steroids for those of us that grew up on film, and it changed the way in which we saved our memories. Digital is now the king of the medium and with advancements seeming to come every week, you just might find that your old digital is now a little behind the times. It doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg to upgrade, and by using our Abe’s of Maine promo codes, you can save even more when you update your photo equipment.
The great thing about having a digital camera, other than the practicality, is all the things that you can do with the pictures that you have stored on your card. Most modern televisions now have card slots where you can insert your media and look at your pictures as a slideshow. It’s the perfect way to share your memories with friends and family, without having to pass a photo album around, repeating the story behind the picture every time someone new looks at them.
Another great option is the ability to print off your pictures to traditional photo paper so that you can send them to family members who may not be as technology savvy as you. Grandma and grandpa especially will get a kick out of receiving pictures that they can hold in their hands and see, and the fact that you can save those images on a computer or other storage device means that the hard copies can be replaced or re-printed as many times as is necessary, without it ever costing you a penny.
It also helps that your precious memories can be stored on flash drives that you can put in a safe place in the event of a fire. Damage to your house can be replaced, but photographic memories cannot, so when you buy your new cameras you should really look at picking up a couple of flash drives were you can back-up all of your images. One of the great things about having a digital camera is that you can be sure that you get the perfect picture every time, but if you end up losing them all at a later date, then it’s all for naught.
