Behold, the New Camera

As mentioned in my previous post, Jody's birthday present to me was a new digital camera. Our old digital camera is a Canon Powershot A70, which we've had for 3+ years. It's a really good camera and I've never had any trouble with it, unlike the Kodak digi-cam that I use at work. I liked the A70 so much that Ash and my mom both got Canon Powershot A540s for Christmas this year.

One feature I wanted on a new camera was more optical zoom. So I went to Circuit City and Best Buy both yesterday afternoon. I had initially thought I was going to buy an Olympus, but after looking at the Olympus and a Canon, I decided I really liked some of the features the Canon offered. Plus, we've had such good luck with Canon, I hated to change.

So we ended up with the Canon S3 IS. It's a nice camera, operates similar to the other one, but it's got a 12X optical zoom and a 4X digital zoom, creating a total zoom of 48X.

I can't wait to play around with it some today!

Dang! That's alot of zoom! You planning on doing some spying? :)

We all have Canon's and love them. Mine is almost 3 years old as well, but I haven't had any problems with it so I'll probably hang on to it a little longer. Lindsay is somewhat of an "aspiring" photographer so she has the big daddy (Rebel).

Good luck with your picture taking! Post some pics if you take anything interesting!

Go out and live it up, though! Look at it this way, whether people know it or not, the WHOLE WORLD parties on YOUR birthday!
