I’ve decided what my reward’s going to be for getting to the end of the C25K. I’ve been needing a new compact camera for a while now. My venerable Konica‐Minolta DiMage X‐60 was a good first digital camera, but it’s now battered, bruised and lacking in battery staying‐power.

Not only that, but at 5 megapixels with a not‐so‐hot lens, pictures from it are looking pretty rubbish compared to many modern compacts.

I’ve seen a few good views while I’ve been out running that the rubbish camera on the iPhone couldn’t do justice. And while I have got a much better camera, it’s an SLR (a Canon EOS 400D), and not the kind of thing I want to take jogging with me.

So, a shiny new camera that takes good pictures and is light and small enough to take along in a pocket or a bumbag seems like an appropriate reward for getting running. And maybe it’ll help spice up the pictures on this blog a bit…

    Himself was raving about the Casio Exilim EX‐FC100, although more for video stuff, if that’s something you’re interested in.

    I’m definitely thinking along small and pocketable still camera lines — I’ve already got the Zi6 for video, and I don’t use it terribly often as it is… I’m thinking of one of the Panasonic LUMIXes, I just don’t know which one…
