I Ordered a New Toy!

current mood: pleased
current music: theme song to the PBSkids show, SuperWhy (my son is watching it in another room)

I finally ordered my new camera! I've been without one since my trusty old Pentax film camera died a few months ago. It was time to go digital, and I've been researching what's available for some time. I don't need a lot of sophisticated features, but I'm very picky about image quality, especially since I often enlarge and crop photos for various projects. I also wanted a decent zoom and an option for manual controls. And I didn't want to spend a fortune.

I just ordered myself a Canon Powershot A650 IS, a 12-megapixel camera with a 1/1.7 sensor, image stabilization, and a 6X zoom. And I should have it in time for my trip to New Hampshire to visit my sister this month. Yay!

Here's a picture of my new baby:

Sweet! I've always liked the Canon interface.

That's encouraging. I've never used a Canon, so I'm jumping in blind here, except for a lot of online research.
