Good Enough!

A blog about "good enough" things - for those who don't need, can't afford, or don't care about the "very best".

Lights, Camera...

Some time ago, I bought a Radio Shack Flatfoto camera. It was "good enough" at the time, for what I wanted it for at the time: a camera I could always have with me, to take shots which I'd e-mail. The VGA resolution (640 x 480) works pretty well for e-mail and posting to the web, but the camera doesn't take great photos unless the light is just right. There's no flash, no memory card, and the USB driver for the camera is built into the photo-downloading software for the camera, so you can't download the photos in other ways. I'm not sure that it's "good enough" any more. That means I'll probably start looking into a "real" digital camera soon, I guess. I won't be in too much of a rush, since we own a couple of decent point-and-shoot 35mm cameras and one old SLR we inherited, so we still have the Photo/Picture CD (what is Kodak's preferred name for that, anyway?) option when we want digitized photos - which definitely is "good enough".
