New Camera

Was just sit'n here mind'n my own business an' I says...."check the track'n number on that camera....where it at". Well shoot, it arrived at the post office 2 hours ago. I jumps in "that jeep" lickity split and pick up my package with no problem.
Got back to the ranch an' tears the package open. "That one good look'n camera ya got there Billy Bob".
Yeah it are.....but.....I may not like it. The zoom feature is not what I had expected. 5x optical zoom and 2.6 digital zoom, for a total of 13x. Oh never mind.....just read the instructions. Got 20x zoom.....now that what I'm talk'n bout. And then, all the controls are built in instead of the little dial thingy. It weighs a little more than the Cannon A3300 'cause it uses 2 AA batteries and it's a little thicker on one end....that where ya put the batteries. The only reason I bought this particular camera was for the viewfinder feature and 16 mega pixel quality.

Oh yeah before I forgets. I fount the refrigerant leak on "that jeep". Ain't something I can "fix" just like that. The front 'o' ring on the compressor is leaking. The clutch assembly would need removed to get to the bolts and old Billy Bob ain't got no clutch puller. So....the way I figger is, "let 'er leak". Add some refrigerant when needed. For what a clutch puller and another freon charge would cost, I can run another 2 or 3 years adding freon for what it would cost to "fix" it. 

That's the morning news. Stay tuned for updates "as the world turns".

Betcha I know what I gonna do now. That couch sure do look invit'n.....maybe a little nap?

  1. I use rechargable batteries for my cameras. I love that they take typical batteries rather than having to buy battery packs of some sort. Have fun with it!

  3. I bought one just like it because of the viewfinder. I use it when in bright sun and can't see the screen.

  5. I really like my Cannon A3300 cuz it has a rechargeable battery in it, and I'm liking the pictures it takes and the features it has even though I'll never bother to learn to use all of them.

    I have A/C clutch pulling tools but it's never warm enough up here for me to bother fixing the A/C on my truck, what I want is a better frigging heater.

  6. Modified rod holders? It should increase your catch at least 50%. Good luck with the battle of the fishes.

    1. LOL.....now that's funny. The only reason for the rod holders is to get my fish poles out the front of the "bubba boat" where my feet supposed to go. They get all tangle up and them hooks come too close to pok'n a hole in the boat....let all the air out....then I sink.....probably drown.

  9. Well I do declare now BB, you call yourself a redneck, but there ain't no sigh of any duck tape anywhere in any of the pictures, for shame. A project like that should be good for at least one roll.
