Just today I purchased a Casio EX-H15 digital camera. My old Kodak (which has taken all the photos featured on the blog) dates back to 2005 and is a bit long in the tooth. It still takes decent photos but is not able to cope with the volume of photos I tend to take in a day at the archives (around 200-800). As of now it will become my dedicated backup camera.
If interested in either item, I've hotlinked the company pages for both products. I can't speak on the camera yet, but the nice lady who sold it to me is working on a history degree as well and understood my questions, so fingers are crossed it performs well!
