My new toy

I love my little point and shoot camera. It has served me well but I have out grown it. I'm not quite ready for a DSLR but I do need something more than I have now.

Earlier this year I found this Canon Powershot camera that had a 20x zoom and I wanted it. I was going to buy it that night. My sister talked me out of it because I'm a bit of an impulsive buyer.


But after realizing what I really wanted in a camera, looking at various cameras, and reading reviews on them, viewing pictures from them, I came back to the said Canon Powershot.


It had all the features that I wanted and more. This time everyone encouraged me because they knew it wasn't an impulsive buy anymore.

I actually have been studying the manual. I know, le gasp! Usually I just tinker around and figure it out by myself. But I want to make sure I'm using this camera to it's utmost ability. And I'm going to master the manual settting.

I can't wait to improve my photography and to have more of a creative control over what I'm shooting. So I will be using this camera to it's fullest capabilities. And then when I outgrow this one, DSLR here I come!

Did I mention the macro on this camera? In super macro mode you can be 0 cm and get a picture. zero cm!!!!

And I'm going to repeat myself one more time... 20x ZOOM!!!!! I was drooling when I first read that part...

20x zoom is like 20 times better than 1x zoom...where are the pictures ?

I am a little jealous on the macro and the zoom. However, I like the convenience of carrying my camera in my pocket. I will have to live with my 7x zoom. Love you.
