- First Gadget i fell in love with
The first digital camera i bought was in year 2005, a mere 3.2 megapixel Casio EX-S100. The price of INR 25,000 was very high price by any standard at that time. I guess i was sold by the tag line 'The World's Smallest Digital Camera With Optical Zoom' and shelled out my entire joining bonus from my new job.
Truly the Casio EX-S100 was small, i mean very small, i could carry it around in my jeans front pocket all the time. And thats what i really liked about it, i was clicking snaps all the time and enjoying every bit of it. It captured moments of my newborn kid, it was with us for all of our family excursions in and around Bangalore.
It was on one of such trips to Coorg that i realized that all the snaps are some what out of focus. and that when i realized that the lense is not retracting back properly in the camera chassis. I knew it was the end of it when the service person confirmed that the lense assembly will need to be replaced and the cost will be worth more that the new cameras then available on the market.
after that i have bought more capable cameras but i still miss the ever-pocket able Casio Ex-S100.
