May 1st, 2009

I'm in love...... with a camera! Ha ha. For a while now I have known that need a new camera, my current Fuji Film Z3 has been dropped once too often (I occasionally have "butter fingers") and to capture anything I have to leave on the anti-blur setting which is primarily for when you are moving. This results in me using my camera phone more, and sometimes the images are not so great on there.

What did I see pop into my Inbox the other day but an email from Apple, loaded with all kinds of goodies. One of which was this Canon 12.1 Megapixel camera and HD video recorder, complete with face detection and blink detection. Blink detection is for when you take a picture and someone cool is that!

This is solely the camera to have and I want/need it. The color is one of my fave aspects of the camera. I have already placed the camera on my wish list, so we shall see what happens. Either I will buy it or I will get it as a gift.
