random covety questions
1. I live in a really big city. Does anyone in Toronto know where to find the Amy Butler fabrics and patterns? Someone in town MUST carry them! [Yes, I've checked the website. It's no help.]
2. I will soon have to upgrade my digital camera. As you can see in the shot below, I've got graininess up the yingyang and the resolution's too low for my purposes. I need a 5mp [? this is the only variable] camera with a macro setting, image stabilization and as much optical zoom as I can get. So far based on online reviews, the only likely candidate is the Panasonic [seriously?] Lumix FZ20. But it's almost a thousand bucks up here...which is too much for me.
A lot of you take great pics and I don't think all of you are using 5mp cameras. So I'd love to hear your opinions about your cameras, especially closeup shots, clarity, color reproduction and graininess or lack thereof.
