Old Camera

I found my "old" Canon T50 SLR camera I bought when we first moved to California in 1985. The camera came with a 50mm lens and I bought a 80-200mm telephoto zoom lens as well. It was a simple camera to use—although you had to focus manually—and took pretty good pictures.

I checked the frame counter and it showed "4" which means I took three pictures already. I think the film inside (if there is even film inside) is from before 2000 and I'm not even sure if it's a 24 or 36 exposure roll. I changed out the batteries and the camera seems to work. I guess I'll have to shoot the rest of the roll and get it developed.

All the recent pictures I took on this website was with a Sony DSC-W5. Earlier pictures are from a Sony DSC-L1 or Sony DSC-U20. I've been pretty happy with Sony digital cameras. The really crappy looking pictures were taken with my Treo 650.
