new cameraThis is my new “Spy” Camera. It is a Canon ELPT LT APO (which stands for Advanced Photo System). It’s dimensions are 3.4 x 2.2 x 1.4. It weigh 4.1 oz. It shoots 25 exp. And is fully automatic with a Canon 23 MM f 4.8 lens. It has a self-timer and a built in flash. It has lots of other bells and whistles that I don’t use. It shoots three types of prints. You can chose regular size, wide size or panorama prints, and you can alternate between them. As you can see in the photo, it’s about the size of a pack of cards. It hides real easy in your shirt pocket. I felt like a real under cover spy when I took the picture of the men’s room that you will see later. All photos on this site (except the picture of me and the camera which was taken with my 35 MM Camera) have been taken with this camera. So far all pictures have been taken within the boundaries of Tarrant County, but that could change.

Lake Worth Police

I take a lot of my pictures through the windows of my truck, so I have to keep the windows fairly clean (no bug guts). When I see a potential photo, I quickly snap the photo before the subject can tell what I’m doing. Sometimes I get caught. I just look straight ahead and pretend to not notice. So far it has worked.
