Before I tell you about the Share Button, though, you've got to check out these great pictures! (The entire Bus Tour set can be found here.)
|Uh, I think I failed rotating pictures. Quintessential New York shot.|

|Sparklecorn Party. I love the movement in this. A happy accident!|

For me there was a small learning curve with a point-and-shoot, (I've previously only owned a DSLR,) but once I learned a few tricks I was good to go and loved all of my shots. The biggest trick? Simple. Hold down the shutter button slightly for the camera to focus before you actually take the shot. Hmph. I should have known. All of the specifics on the camera can be found here. You know, all of the technical stuff that I don't really understand. All I know is, Hey! Great pictures!
This camera also shoots video, and has multiple automatic settings, (such as close up, landscape, etc.,) red-eye reduction, and is small enough to keep in your purse for everyday shots. Great for a mom like me that doesn't want to lug the 'big' camera everywhere.
Lastly, something that I didn't get to do while in New York but wished that I had was get my picture up on the Kodak screen in Times Square. Are you going to New York soon? Follow the steps for the Thousand Words campaign to get your photo on the big screen. You can even time it so you'll be there to see it! Totally wish I'd had a chance to do it. *Sigh* Next time, right?
A huge THANK YOU to Kodak and Ketchum for making this day possible, and for the M580 camera!
Kodak supplied me with this camera to take on the bus tour. No other compensation was received, and the opinions of the camera are my own. This post also contains affiliate links, you know, for a few more pennies.
