Getting a cheap digital camera for the Depeche Mode concert this weekend was easy. Nowadays every discounter has tons of low-cost cameras with fancy stickers on the body advertising a hell lot of functions and buzzwords. Mine has 9 MPixel, 3x optical zoom, face and smile detection, vga recording with sound and an anti shake function. It comes with a 1GB secure digital card, a camera bag and two carrying stripes. It’s a Rollei Compactline 90 and after the first tests it seems to create photos of satisfying quality and ok-ish videos in VGA resolution. I think it’ll do the job at saturday. It’s rather small, so I guess I’ll also use it on bike tours from now on.
