High-Power 500mm/1000mm f/8 Manual Telephoto Lens for Canon Digital EOS

High-Power 500mm/1000mm f/8 Manual Telephoto Lens for Canon Digital EOS Rebel T1i, T2i, T3, T3i, T4i, T5, T5i, T6i, T6s, SL1, EOS60D, EOS70D, EOS80D, 50D, 40D, 30D, EOS 5D, EOS1D, EOS5D III, EOS 5Ds, EOS 6D, EOS 7D, EOS 7D Mark II Digital SLR Cameras – BLACK

I bought his just for the fun of it. You need a tripod to use it properly but the images are sharp. I am a birder but prefer to use my low-cost “point and shoot” high magnification zoom cameras or my cannon with 600 mm lens setup. I do plan to take it on my next full-day shooting opportunity where I can take the time to set it up.

Vivitar V7122-Red 8.1 MP Digital Camera with 1.8-Inch LCD Screen and Anti-Shake (Red)

Child, Crying, Kid, Boy, Sad, Young

I bought these attractive (red) cameras for my two grandsons who are part of triplets. I bought there sister a different gift. Maybe she would have preferred a camera. This is a step higher than dirt cheap cameras and is durable and works as you would expect a fine digital camera that cost less than $50.00.

Now for the truth. Amazon reviewers say they burn up the batteries, stop working soon after they start, and take crummy pics. I sent  a text to my son. He says they are ok for kids but the photos are not adult quality.

Choose a camera for under $50.00 Make sure you read the reviews.

Fujifilm 16.2MP Digital Camera With 50x Optical Zoom, Black

I purchased the Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FZ70 16.1 MP Digital Camera with 60x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom and 3-Inch LCD (Black) in March of 2014. I am mainly a birder  but I like to paint to I photograph birds and landscapes. I love this camera but it is hard to come by now as Panasonic describes it a being of limited stock.

I see that this camera now has other competitors such as the

Nikon COOLPIX P900 16MP 83x Super Zoom Digital Camera Full HD Black 8GB Bundle – Includes Camera, 8GB Secure Digital SD Memory Card, Gadget Bag, Cleaning Kit and Cleaning Pen & Microfiber Cloth. This camera is $596.00 and I’m sure that I would love to have one but I have too many cameras for an 85 year old man. But I’m tempted because it has 83X.

I also have the

Fujifilm FinePix HS10 10 MP CMOS Digital Camera with 30x Wide Angle Optical Zoom and 3-Inch LCD which I purchased in 2012. It has manual focus but since I use if for birds, I seldom change the focus from 30 x. A great camera but sometimes I want more power.

If you don’t have a hign power zoom camera, I recommend the

Fujifilm 16.2MP Digital Camera With 50x Optical Zoom, Black

  • 16.2 megapixel resolution with high-quality still images and video recordings Featuring Auto, Standard and Panorama Effects with 1080p Full HD Movie Recording, Face Detection Technology, Optical Image Stabilization
  • FUJINON 4.3-215mm zoom lens with 50x optical/2x digital zoom Equivalent to a 24-1200mm lens on an analog camera with TTL Contrast, Single AF, Continuous AF, Glass Lens
  • 3.0″ TFT LCD screen Featuring Graphical User Interface, color TFT LCD screen
  • S9150 FUJIFILM FinePix Digital Camera has a built-in flash with Red-Eye Reduction, Forced Flash, Auto On/Off and Slow-Sync Flash

carsonI bought this Carson zOrb USB Digital Microscope with 53x Optical Zoom in 1912. It works great and is a great gift for a curious kid.

Introduction:

Our floor scrubber disappeared so we had to buy a new one. We found this model to be reasonably easy to operate, to perform well, and to be durable. That is, our caregiver was able to see these things.

The price of 152.99 with free sipping with Amazon Prime made it very affordable. Also, it came in two days.

We are very satisfied.

Presto 06301 Dehydro Digital Electric Food Dehydrator

Have you thought about drying foods. We decided to put one to use because we grow cherries, apricots, peaches, plumbs, pears and apples. My daughter-in-law has been drying for years but other then smoking some Kokanee salmon in colorado, where I cremated most of them and had to feed them to the neighbors dog, I have never tried it.

We bought this dryer and Georgia, our caregiver, put it to work which means she cut up some apples and left them out to dry meaning we just put the dryer outside on our spare freezer. This unit works and we will be using it a lot more next season. My daughter-in-law seems to never stop drying stuff. She puts the dried product into pint jars. I guess if you use your sealer to remove air from the jars, thwy would keep like wheat in the pyramids.

The presto dryer features:

  • Six-tray system for dehydrating foods at a fraction of the cost of commercially dried foods with no additives or preservatives.
  • Makes jerky from meat, poultry, and seafood includes sample packets of jerky spice and cure
  • Digital thermostat and timer for precise drying time and temperature choose drying temperatures from 90 to 165 degree f
  • The bottom-mounted fan and heating element provide consistant air flow for optimum drying No rotation needed
  • Includes six drying trays (expands up to 12 trays), two fruit roll sheets, two nonstick mesh screens trays and cover are dishwasher safe
