So I broke down a couple of weeks ago and bought myself a new camera. I decided on a Nikon Coolpix and so far I'm pretty happy with it. My old camera, while it would take ok pictures as long as there was enough lighting, it didn't have a flash so indoor pictures were a bit harder to keep from being blurry.
This camera seems to take great indoor pictures of my rats, which is what I was hoping for. Too many times pictures of the rats are blurry and I have to take 30 pictures to get one good one. Not any more. Here are some of the pictures I've taken with the new camera.
Here's Marbles my 4 year old rat. It may look like he's got some hair loss going on by his ears but he's a rex so his hair is sparse and completely missing in some places.
Marbles hangs out on the bottom shelf of the cage because he has hind leg degeneration and can no longer walk up the ladder. But he's getting around slowly there on the bottom. He likes to move from the plastic igloo to the box and back again. In the morning I find him in the igloo and at night he goes over to the box. He's a bit anti social and doesn't like to be petted and when I try he will grab my finger with his teeth and push me out of his house. lol Poor grumpy old man.
Here's one of the pictures I took for Easter.
Lucky always gives me this look when I open the cage door. he's either thinking, "food or treat? or pet me?" lol
Lucky looks a bit cross eyed in this picture.
I really like my new camera. No more blurry pictures.
