I purchased an inexpensive tablet to use for ham radio communications (APRS and MT63 for those who are curious). When I say inexpensive, I mean a refurbished discontinued model, but still adequate for my purposes. There’s just one problem.
Every time I turn it on, it immediately goes into camera mode, with the camera aimed at me. This is unsatisfactory for two reasons:
1. I rarely use camera mode on a tablet. Being a 21st Century Luddite, I use an honestly real digital camera. It has something to do with quality pictures.
2. I put myself through school photographing weddings. Although income was the primary reason, additionally:
- When friends got married, I never had to rent a tux, host a bachelor party, etc.
- I hate having my picture take, and being behind the camera helps ensure very few pictures with me in it.
At first I was confused—why was it set up this way?
You know how when you see something frequently, you tend not to see it at all until you stop and think.
I stopped, thought, and turned my head toward my teenage daughter, She laughed loudly and took another selfie.
I told you I was a Luddite.
