Hi, my name is Kenny (HaarFager), and I've been made one of the new administrators of this group. There's another new one as well and I think he'll chime in and introduce himself as well. But I wanted to let everybody know that we have some ideas for the group that will, hopefully, make it an even more fun group to be a part of.

The first thing will be a photo of the week posted on the homepage to show off to the world some of the great shots taken by the members of this group. The second thing we've already discussed is to have some sort of monthly contest. I've got a few ideas in mind, but if anybody else has some suggestions for contest themes or subjects, please post them here. I'd like to see this group grow and add new members and make it a fun place to hang out at. After all, these cameras are so fun to use! With their low quality and lack of adjustments, it makes these camera something to just fire away with and see what you can come up with.

So, get those cameras going and bring up the intensity level of the Vivitar Mini Digital group!

Greetings, salutations and fond solicitations to one and all. O.K. maybe that was a little over the top. In keeping with the theme of this group (small) let me just say, "Hi". I'm Phil (midmophil) one of the new administrators for the Vivitar Mini Digital group. As Kenny has already told you, we (actually he) has a lot of great ideas to make this group more fun and maybe even a little challenging. This camera, and its many different incarnations, is so small that you can easily carry it with you literally everywhere. Grabbing a few shots during lunch break, walking down the street, going to a concert in the park, or a ballgame is so easy. It is so discreet that even street photography should be easy. When you don't want to carry a big SLR, or even risk taking out your expensive digital camera, there's always the Vivitar Mini. If you're the creative kind you could even dress up your images using photo software. This tiny little wonder brings back some of the magic of photography. You don't know whether your shot came out until you print it, or in this case upload it onto your computer. I'm rambling now and somebody needs to pull my plug. You get the idea. I'm looking forward to seeing lots of new photos here. Let Kenny and I know if you have any ideas that will help spark some imagination. But, remember this is a family friendly group. Be kind, play nice and let the games begin.

Thanks, Phil - that's exactly what I was trying to say about the little camera. You were much more erudite that I was, and you weren't rambling at all! But, I digress. I hope to have a scanned copy of the user manual up soon for everybody's benefit. I also think that a new post topic should be created to tell about helpful tips on how to use the camera better or to make the photos better after the fact. There's a lot of potential just waiting to get out of these fun, little cameras.
