This looks cool!

Hi All,

  Ooh, ooh ooh.  I got an Amazon gift card for Xmas and ran across this cool gizmo.  C'mon plant nerds - should I spend my gift card on this or wait til my birthday (January)?  Will I be disappointed with 4 megapixels?  Do you guys want to see timelapse pix of stuff?  Please weigh in.  Link-

Hi, Beth, It's good to hear

Hi, Beth,

It's good to hear you flush with money for treats, then! Enjoy it and make hay while the sun shines.

The fiscal weather's not so fine here this year. But things work out somehow sometimes. My glasses were all scratched up, and it would hurt to put out $350 or so to replace them, and it wasn't strictly necessary. But I got a little money for Christmas and decided to just see what it would cost at Walmart (like, $350 or so). But the wonderful salesman there said, hey, it's really just the anti-glare coating that's scratched up, not the glasses. I could try this solvent...

And voila. In 20 minutes he gave me back a perfectly clear pair of glasses, for free, good as new.  And I spent the bit of money on seeds and stuff. Costa Rican sweet pepper seeds from Burpee were the splurgiest - $10 shipped but I've had my eye on them for a couple years now.

 Hi Gisette,   Looks like

 Hi Gisette,

  Looks like this will be my birthday present so I won't be able to play until 1/26.  I really think it'll be a cool toy to play with.  Lots of cool toys this year!  And I still have my Amazon gift certificate - I'm not used to all this!  I keep thinking I should redeem the gift certificate for paper towels or toilet paper...

That looks like a lot of fun,

That looks like a lot of fun, Beth! Sure, I'd love to see timelapse pix of stuff growing.

It seems to me that tomatoes and peppers kinda do slo-mo jumping jacks with their leaves/branches. I'd love to capture that on timelapse. And a cucumber plant growing. Not quite fast enough to grow before your very eyes, but almost...

I read the first review, btw - the reviewer gave a lot of good technical tips. Another said great depth of color, deep blacks, etc.
