Well, it was my birthday recently and with the money I'd got burning a hole in my pocket I went to Jessops in Birmingham and bought a new camera.
A Sony Cyber-shot H200, with 20.1 mega pixels and 26 x optical zoom.
So far I've managed to put the batteries and memory card in and switch it on and off. All the rest is a bit of a mystery - and will take some concentration.
I promise to show you how I get on. If any of you have any tips - do let me know.
I need all the help I can get.
Hope you all enjoy your Bank Holiday Weekend.
