The New Camera!

My new camera came in the mail on Monday and I wanted to share a little comparison of cameras with you:
Old Camera

My old camera is a Sony Cyber-shot that I got as a college graduation present in the Spring of 2004. It is a 5.0 Mega Pixel camera with a 3x optical zoom. (If that is worded funny to you, it's because I have no clue what I'm talking about! LOL!) I'm pretty sure it was one of the better cameras at the time.


New Camera
This is my new camera that was won along with the play set from Dad Blogs. It is a Canon Power Shot A1100 IS. (I think IS stands for Image Stabilizer, but I'm not sure what that means...yet.) It is a 12.1 Mega Pixel camera with a 4x optical zoom. I've only played with it a little bit, but it is REALLY cool! :-)


Accessories I didn't know that this was coming with the camera, but I also got a camera case and a second memory card!

I didn't realize just how outdated my old camera was until I started playing with the new one. I think it must have face recognition and a really neat autofocus! It makes all these fun sounds too while it's doing it's thing-LOL! The one thing that this camera doesn't do that my old one does is plug in to recharge. I'm going to have to get used to buying and switching out batteries now, but I think it will be more convenient, when we're out and about or on vacation, than hauling around cords!

I want to thank Dad Blogs, yet again, for this great prize! I'm really loving it! :-)

Canon makes a great camera. I use to buy them a lot,before digital. Can't wait to see the photo from it. Oh.. the Stabilizer means it will catch the moving item in a picture or your moving hand and create a still clear shot.a great feature!:-)

Looks like a great camera! Congratulations! We have a 12 mega pixel camera and it is much, much better than our old 5 mega pixel one. I'm sure you will love your new camera.

It looks like a good camera :) Buy rechargeable batteries - that sucker will blow through regular batteries in 5 min. flat. Mine does.

Rechagable batteries sis!! kind of pricey up front but will save you a boat load in the future! Same thing for the kids toys... Jason uses them for all of his "toys" to save money and the planet :)
