Browsing a camera catalogue is alluring especially when it comes directly in my home mailbox. I thought I would not fall for compact digital cameras anymore because of its short battery life. But when I saw the Canon PowerShot S110 in my catalogue I immediately showed it to hubby and told him I needed a smaller camera. Without my knowledge he went to the store and checked on it. He brought me to the same store and he said he found another model that doesn’t have WiFi and no touch screen but it has better zoom. Here it is.
My new photography gear! The Canon PowerShot SX260 HS which he bought on my birthday. Sweet! It has a GPS function and a Smart Shutter that detects faces (smiles) and automatically shoots by itself. I have tried it. It’s cool! Since I’ve been using Canon PowerShot G7, finding the settings and other modes is quite easy. Though this SX260 shows a description of selected shooting method.
The 20x-zoom lens is awesome and useful when taking photos on travels. I discovered another method that’s quite interesting, too – the Live Control View that allows me to adjust the brightness, color and tone before hitting the shutter. And of course, what I want more is the full HD video shooting.
Above is a sample pic I took today at the restaurant. It’s resized but the original size is 4000 x 3000. Focal lenght: 40.3 mm. Eventually I learn to set my own aperture, shutter speed and ISO with this camera. Hopefully.
