Lucky me! Found a camera.

I purchased a nice slightly used messenger bag at a yard sale on my commute home. Gave a whole .50 cents for it. I was shocked when he said 50 cents and pulled two quarters out and handed it over and got out of there before they changed there mind. I get home and open it up and find a Samsung 5.0 Mega pixel Digimax A503 camera! It's missing the SD card but theres 32-meg of internal memory so I snap a few pictures and try out the video function and find everything is working. It has a standard USB port so I connect it to my computer. My Linux OS found it and put it on the desktop as a flash drive. I click the drive icon and theres all the pictures I took and they look great. I saved them to my photo folder. I thought about returning the camera but the yard sale was in the corner of an X-mart parking lot so I have no idea who I bought the bag from. I'm not going to worry about it and just use my new camera with reckless abandon! Now I just need to make a handlebar clamp for it.

Big-Lots had one for $14. I already have it in the camera.
I just loaded Avidemux video editor. It allows editing .avi video and converting to DVD format. It looks interesting so I need to shoot some video and see how well that works.
