So it’s no secret that I’ve been longing for a new camera. I’ve had it since 2003 and digital technology has come a long way since then. Event he cheapest cameras available are better than the one I have now. I agreed with myself to wait until it was broken because I have no good reason to get a new one really.
Well it’s now moderately broken. There’s something wrong with the door to the battery compartment. The other day the batteries died and when I went to replace them, I couldn’t get it open. Brent finally did it and I have no idea how but what a pain! I can’t go on a Roman adventure and part way through have no photos because I can’t change the danged batteries!
I’m a fairly loyal consumer of Canon products. In my experience, they always give the best quality/price ratio. So I’ve come up with these two options. My major concerns were MP, Optical zoom, Weight and Battery type and cost.
This one, is the batter camera as far as specs go.
10x Optical Zoom
This one is pretty close to the specs of the first, costs less and is lighter.
6X Optical Zoom
249.99 (on sale for 229.99)
I’m going to check them out in-store and play around with them. I’d prefer not to have to buy a new memory card so I’ll see if either of them accept the one I have for my current camera. After I see them in Best Buy, I’ll see if I can get a better price at another store.
I’m open to other suggestions but I’m telling you, 350 is my absolute MAXIMUM price (Canadian)
