New Digital Camera

About a year ago, I upgraded from my old Canon A300 to a newer Canon SD550. This was mostly to get higher resolution, and the fact that I hated the rate that the A300 chewed through AA batteries.

A couple of days ago, we went to Houston Camera Exchange, and I ended up coming home with a Canon S3 IS. I had been thinking about picking up a DSLR camera, but in the end I got a high-end point-and-shoot that has a good glass lens and nice optical zoom.

I’m really happy with it so far, and solved the “eats AA batteries” problem by buying two sets of NICd rechargeables and a charger.

You can see some of the initial test shots I took here.

One thought on “New Digital Camera

  1. Hi,
    I am planning to purchase the Canon S3 IS. It is between this and the Canon SD800. I have never used a digital camera and want one that is easy to use, has a good zoom, and most of all takes high quality pictures. Is the Canon S3 IS harder to learn and use? Thanks for your help. Any advice would be appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Marlene
