hello goodbye

I ordered a new camera a few days ago, and it arrived today. I looked at a variety of colored cameras, but in the end I knew I had to have another orange one. I went with the Casio Exilim S600, but here’s the thing–it’s more red than orange, and I’m not sure I am crazy about it:

See how cheerfully orange my old Sony is? Amazon even calls the Casio color “red,” but I know it’s what Casio calls orange, because they don’t offer both orange and red. So, I’m in a quandary. Do I return it or just keep it and embrace the red-orangeness of it? It’s not like I have any viable orange options (Fuji makes an orange one, but it’s not compact enough).
And now for something completely different, some of you have expressed interest in Melissa‘s Norwegian apple cake recipe. I believe it is a closely held, secret family recipe, but bribery just might work.

    Oh no! It’s not orange enough for you! Sad because it’s a good little camera (once you drop in a memory card though). Can you find a real orange one?

    Well, the camera opinion depends…is the Sony also sparkly? The Casio doesn’t appear sparkly, which makes a difference as well ;-). Actually, I think the Casio looks kind of retro and quite cool on it’s own merits. Besides, wouldn’t red go with your new shoes?

    Mariko, I found this at the UK amazon site:
    Not sure if it’s available in Seattle, but I’m sure you could buy it online if you like it!
    (first-time post, looooong time reader and fan!)

    i have an exilim camera and love it. i say embrace the new color! it’s the quality of the pictures and ease of use of the camera that truly count 😉 (but hey, orange is very nice too.)

    learn to live with it DH! 🙂
    but i will confirm that you can order from amazon.co.uk – the same as ordering from amazon US – and THAT camera is actually orange.

    I’d say keep it for the pics and put the other one away where you can’t compare them. The new one might look more orangey without the super-orange one next to it. Maybe? It’s darn cute anyway – maybe make an outfit to set it off!

    Would it help if you thought of the new camera not as red but as persimmon? Because in your picture the color looks just like a really dead-ripe persimmon (the tall ones, not the flat squashy ones). And say, if both cameras are in the photo…. Which camera took that shot?!?

    i have no opinion. i didn’t even know casio was making things. who’s the giant dork about a recipe?? oh wait, that’s me.

    How about making it an orange camera cozy and putting a cute sticker on the camera?
    I think it is cuuuute.

  11. claudia says:

    I love the new one and am glad you now are keeping it.
    Clearly, I want one too.

  12. I would keep a casio over a sony any day. Sony cameras aren’t as good as they should be. Surprisingly…casio kicks sony’s ass in cameras. 🙂 you made the right decision!
