    I would love to see you get a camera that does not also make phone calls. Seriously, for under $100 you can get a working, used camera that was once $1000 like the Nikon 990 or 995 (or probably 100 other answers) that would be easier than iPhoning.

    The plural of sestertius is sestertii. Bad Latin is a petpeeve of mine.

    I have a nikon coolpix 10mp camera but I havent been using it lately or my lamp and my pictures show that. I moved about a month ago and I'm still trying to find everything but I've been busy at work and when Im home im sleeping or doing coin projects among other things. Multitasking tends to be a huge mess. I have the 3g iphone so it doesnt have the camera the newer one has but it was cheaper(I hate spending money and my phone only cost a dollar with the service plan). I have a bad habit of calling these coins sestertius instead of stesterti sorry about that, I will try to use the correct terms.
