There are two kinds of people in this world: those who embrace new technology and those who can't be bothered. If you fall into the latter category you're probably still taking photos via a 35mm munching brickcam, whilst repeating your dull 'If it ain't broke, why fix it?' mantra.
But digital photography offers so much more than old-school snapping, especially if you go digital with the incredibly chic Slim 5L. This smart little 3.1 megapixel digital camera is laden with features yet it weighs in at only 80 grams.
In fact, the Slim 5L is so diminutive you could easily forget that it's in your pocket at all. Which would be a shame, as this beautifully engineered camera boasts 8MBs of onboard memory (expandable to 256 MBs via SD card), 640x480 video recording with sound, built-in wide range flashlight, 3 megapixel CMOS sensor, 8x digital zoom, webcam function and a sharp LCD 1.5" screen with which to frame and review your snaps and movies.
Impressed? You should be, because the Slim 5L eats many of its pricier competitors for breakfast (not literally, that really would be impressive!) and, thanks to its sleek aluminium casing, it feels satisfyingly sturdy. Add idiot-proof software and fast USB connectivity to the 5L's impressive list of features and you're looking at the ideal introduction to the wonderful world of digital photography.
The only thing you need to do now is find some photographic subjects worthy of the 5L's attention, as this superb camera is simply too good to waste on infantile snapshots of collapsed colleagues and quick vids of puerile party tricks (although it is pretty useful for those). It's a high-quality, function-filled replacement for your 35mm museum piece, that should, by now, be languishing in the bin. So come on, what the 5L are you waiting for!
