Nikon DL Premium Compact Series ensures the humble digital camera has some legs left

nikon-dl18The normal digital camera can be said to have been phased out – simply because point-and-shoot devices are no longer in vogue, not to mention that most of us rely on our smartphone cameras these days to get the job done as opposed to a chunky DSLR.

Having said that, Pentax is no stranger when it comes to imaging systems, and where their cameras are concerned, they too, have taken the special edition route once in a while such as with the Pentax K-7 limited edition model.

DokiWatch

If you’ve never taken care of a child or puppy, which is essentially the same thing, it’s a pretty terrifying experience. They get into everything, put all nearest objects in their mouth, and unknowingly attempt suicide every five minutes because they just don’t know what anything is. While you can train a puppy as they grow up, the same is not so easily done for kids. Human intelligence makes them crafty, sneaky, and much more prone to danger. That being said, we want to keep watch on the little boogers and make sure they’re not getting into too much trouble.
