camera ?

Recommended Posts

I recently got a Canon SS880 IS. I like it because it has a wide angle lens (great for landscape photos, or for photographing a room). It also has Macro (for close-ups of flowers and bugs). It has a bunch of pre-programmed settings that are easy to access. It has a large LCD screen, with large icons (easy on my old eyes). I'm still discovering features. I really like it.


Oh, and it takes great pictures! :)

I would probably do something like this one


It's a little cheaper from bestbuy right now, but I always like to read the reviews at Amazon first. This camera is a pretty good compromise between a point and shoot and a DSLR. The 20x optical zoom should make a big difference in capabilities between the Canon you have now. I really prefer Canons overall, but Sony has some decent cameras and this seems to be one of them.

Canon Powershot SX10 IS


Check out the Flickr Camera Finder for this model. Scroll down and look at the pictures this camera is capable of. Don't stop there, though, look at some of the Flickr groups for this camera.


I chose it because it has a great optical zoom, image stabilization (that can be turned off for macro work and such if you want), fully manual settings and a full menu of auto setting to choose from, hot shoe mount, lens hood. CHDK has a firmware hack for it now so you can shoot in RAW ( I don't have the CHDK on mine yet, but I will download it eventually), and Lensmate has created an attachment that will allow filters to be attached safely to the camera.



Some of my favorite people who shoot with this camera:

His macro work and his HDR work are jaw dropping beautiful. Very talented young man and he shows what this camera can actually do...



This was taken with my SX10 and has not been edited. This is SOOC (straight out of the camera) http://www.flickr.com/photos/kelliappleton/3404595696/
