Compactivity 1

I’ve bought myself a “new” camera! For some time I’ve wanted a compact that will fit in a pocket and that I can take anywhere. Whilst having a mooch around Brighton a couple of weeks ago, I found myself in a second-hand phone shop, which also had a few cameras. And there was just the sort of thing I was after. A second-hand Samsung s1065. A dinky little compact, with some limited manual functionality. £25. Bargain! And it’s pink! Pink cameras are the best sort of cameras.

I didn’t know anything about this camera, and the shop offered no SD card, no documentation, no guarantee. I still don’t know much about it – I assume it’s a few years old. It works fine. And I’m very pleased with the pics. It will certainly do until I can afford a Fujifilm x10!
