ZOOOOOOOOMMMM!!!!!

I have been saving up for a camera for about six months, and thought I would buy an SLR. To tell the truth though, I don't really know what I am doing and was a bit worried about spending a fortune then not being able to use it properly. So I thought I would buy another little canon power shot as I have loved my work one. I ended up buying a canon power shot but a more fancy one-a 'bridge camera' so called, as they bridge the gap beween point and shoots and SLRs-so they say! I read a few reviews of this camera-and decided it sounded great-especially because of the zoom. I got time to set it up and play with it briefly today and these are some comparison shots very quickly taken on it and my old canon. The left side is the old one.


Already I love the zoom! I want to get to know a bit more about what I am doing-not just to use auto all the time, so will be loooking for a good online course in the autumn I think.

I am so looking forward to taking zoom photos when out and about. I may have to get a new career as a member of the paparazzi or perhaps a spy!

Love what your new camera can do. I too only use a point and shoot, and am saving for a new camera.

Very interesting to see your comparisons.

Have fun with the zoom - isn't it amazing when suddenly you can see the detail on something so far away!!

Wow what a difference. I have a little Canon Ixus with a great zoom. I just need to keep on perfecting the art of taking a well composed shot ;-) Enjoy your new little toy! Ros

Wow, like getting new eyes. It would thrill me too!

Woo Hoo! ZOOOOM! I love my zoomer. I use it not only to take photos of unsuspecting critters and things out of range but also to see what the neighbors have in their mailbox. Just kidding about the last one.

Yes, It's me without my Mrs. Potato Head mask. MPH belongs to Hasbro and I decided I needed an icon that wasn't owned. The crow in my back yard may object, but what can he do?

Congrats on your new camera! I have a DSLR and love it! However, I also have a little point and shoot and I love it too! Sometimes I am not in the mood to lug around a huge camera and I think point and shoots (if good quality) can do just as good!
