Macro Enabled.

Welcome back. Its Friday the ….29th. Yea. Because remembering dates and what day it is isn’t really important to me anymore. Going out of town again for the evening, so … a different post of sorts. Yesterday, I ‘mentioned’ finding a camera with macro. and I did. What? How do you just ‘acquire’ a camera with macro in under a day?!?! Anyone want to call shenanigans? No, I is just resourcefuls. haha…yeaa….I now have macro under my list of tools for blogging.

Well. There it is. The camera that didn’t have macro. Its a good 18 months old. With scratches and scars all over the back. photo count is sitting in the 5000s. (lol my youtube video watch count is sitting in the 10000s) Still my camera of choice for casual photo taking due to quick boot up time.

and there we go. a stronger piece of ‘hardware’ longer boot time. odd focusing. user interface is a little trippy. focus settings include standard, macro, super macro, pan focus, infinity, and manual. blah blah blah. more than enough zoom at 16.3 standard and 5.4 macro. its the Pentax Optio A30 from however long ago.

and it can crop within the camera so i don’t have to use paint.net?

Awesome +1

Super Macro : Because regular Macro isn't cool enough.

Well…In all…This will make this a more enjoyable experience. If not, a less painful experience

Premium Casino Bee

Figuring out how the gallery works wasn’t fun. Not fun at all. At least it didn’t take forever. I should think about getting a camera with macro : /

‘Name: Premium Casino “Bee”

Date: 5.28.2009

Cost: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○

3-4$ a Deck. But its probably worth it…

Bee : The stock is obviously thicker than Bicycle.

Availability: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ○ ○ ○

Usually sold in a 2 pack, or separately in sets…depending on where you buy it from . Still readily available on online stores and Ebay at the moment.

Forget the ‘bee’ decks you can pick up at your grocery or pharmacy or retail store or whatever. This is where its at. Among other ‘bees’… we’ll get to some of those later…The box doesn’t state a finish, just ‘Long Lasting Premium Casino Quality’ Its long lasting for a reason,,,the cards are thick. The deck together is thicker than a bicycle deck by 3-6 cards. Depending on which bicycle deck you’re comparing to and how much that bicycle deck has warped…haha….warped…

Bee faros quite well, but the thickness may be against you in this deck.

Back Design: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ○○ ○

The standard bee design. With a white border o   O ! and the Bee logo! In gold lettering! Gold lettering….so you know you’re getting it good. Hopefully. If you pulled out a deck of these, and a deck of regular bees, the old ones look a little lacking…Unfortunately your fans and giant fans don’t look any better :X

Personally, I find that you can slow down doubles on this deck and end up with a better lift. Pulling quick doubles however, might not be a good idea. I blame the thickness of the card.

-Its Bee branded card. This time in premium casino form. What are the pros of this deck…? You get a bee finished deck with white borders. Apparently White bordered bees are difficult to come across. Only matters really if you’re into magic. It says long lasting…I’ll trust that. Cons of the deck…? Not too pretty of a back design? Still wondering how much that really matters..Aside from that, the pricing may be more than you’re willing to spend, at least to get a good supply of these to use. Then again, there are other bee’s out there. Much others…
