Jihaah!!! After many upload errors I finally got it uploaded.

Slow Internet

My internet is at the moment very slow and because of that I can´t upload any video clips.
The dongle connections here on the island are not working good.

 I made a contract of paying 39 euros per month and now they take 43 euros from my bank account every month (the amount increases all the time) and I have got an internet that hardly works. *sigh*
 I decided to finish with it when I went to Finland and sent them a recommended letter telling I quit the first of July. Nothing has happened. They continued taking money from my account!
If I somehow can quit this connection I probably will get a cable connection instead. Somebody told me I have to go to the bank and tell them to close down the payments for Movistar, then it probably will be finished. We´ll see if that works..?

A New Fruit

We have got a new fruit here on Tenerife. 
I don´t know what it´s called but we had one yesterday and it
 tasted a little bit like kiwis.
It´s color will make it useful for making nice desert decorations.


New Camera

Yesterday I bought a new camera in Las Chafiras. It´s a small one that don´t take too much space in my bag, when I always carry it with me, and it´s really easy to use and has got a good photo quality.
It has got 12.1 Mega Pixels, Full HD movie and 10X wide full HD zoom. My old camera had 8.1 Pixels. There were also  many cameras with 16.1 Pixels in the shop but I did not choose that format when I´m  anyhow not gonna need it.

Many times when I buy electronics I think more about how the product will work practically for me and I avoid to turn into a technical freak, searching for the best on the market that in the end could cause me a lot of extra work learning how to use it etc. I´m never interested in paying for functions that I´m never gonna use  and when it comes to buy a camera or a mobile phone I pick the ´easy to use´ ones.

My old one gave up after I brought it down to the beach.
I think I got a lot of sand in it when it at the moment was windy and calima.

This new one anyhow can take high quality photos (good enough for my private photos), but to work with photos in such a high quality for my blog would take too much time when it comes to the uploads. I must change the photos into a format with less pixels before I publish them...which is a little bit sad when I now finally have got a better quality.

The video function is also very good when it comes out in HD quality, but I don´t know how it works in dark rooms. It´s very dark on the Lewinski terrace in the nights and I think you all struggle with getting good quality for your photos and video clips?
I also have to change the videos into a lower quality to get them published on the blog but I hope they will become more clear than before...we´ll see...

I will test and take a couple of video clips when I sing tonight.
It will also be interesting to get to know what the sound quality will be.
Hopefully better than with  the old one. My video clips have so far had a real bad sound.
I know it also depends on how close I stand to the speakers when I film. I stand almost in front of them the most of the times and this is just too loud sound for a small microphone. But I hope anyhow that this new camera can handle high volume better. We´ll soon get the answer....!
