The New Toy
Yesterday, I picked up a new toy, the Canon PowerShot S70. Why did I need a new camera? Well, my old one was falling apart so a replacement was needed. What do I plan to do with this camera? Hmm...more pictures of me eating of course.
I think this camera gives me more to play with, more flexibility after shooting - with cropping and such. Hopefully, I can take some better pictures with it, but it's never about the camera, but about the composition of the photo that makes the picture. There can obviously be a difference in the same photo when it comes to equipment, but in my mind, a lot of it is about the photographer's eye. So whether my eye will be much different remains to be seen.
Any why not a digital SLR? Well, I don't need it. For the lifestyle I have, a smaller camera is better. Even a camera the size of the Canon G6 is too big for me. Basically this camera gives me lots of options shooting with the flexibility to carry it around easily. Now, all I need to do is learn how to use all the features.

I hope the extra megapixels will do your various culinary adventures justice!

I got the S60. And if you aren't going to have a SLR, this canon series is great for easy portability, resolution and control.

heather, the blue metrocard is the original metrocard that the city came out with in the mid-90's. i think 1994.

Why did you choose the S70 instead of the S60? I having being eyeing the S70 for a few weeks now.

witz - the price is almost close enough that the extra megapixels seem worth it, no? 5 is a lot, but in my mind, 7 allows for more operator error (me) and cropping later. especially if i want to print some of the photos i take.
belive it or not, this actually happens once in a while.
