New Camera

First photo just west of Tortugas
I bought a new bridge camera--a FijuFilm S9900W--and spent much of the morning hike experimenting with it.  It'll probably take me several weeks to understand the device completely.  I probably could have used my old FujiFilm camera for a few more years, but one of the latches on the camera compartment door broke and I couldn't repair it.  I've been masking-taping the door shut for the past week or so.  I can tell by the images I've posted today that the 16:9 aspect ratio isn't going to work well for the blog.  More experiments ahead.
