I'm loving my new camera. I have a lot to learn about it, but so far I'm enjoying using it as the photos are surprisingly "really" good. After looking into all the camera types and feeling confused/overwhelmed as well as not being able to consider a cellphone (no service here in the country) I decided to research photography. I learned a lot so far and have barely scratched the surface, but I learned enough to buy a good camera.
I was very fortunate as I've seen this camera new up to $249.00. Mine was new, but the display so I got money off and because the new models are coming in this week and all they had was the display left they took it from $179.99 to my final price of $116.00. I was thrilled!!! I have seen it online for some good deals and bad, so if you're looking for a new camera shop around a lot first.
I chose this camera because after reading about features on the web I decided I wanted a Mac feature and Super Mac for extreme close-ups. I also wanted an Aperture setting and to be able to adjust it. This camera also allows me to adjust shutter speed, white balance, etc. so that I can get clear, true to color, very detailed close ups. The funny thing is that I notice things I hadn't before on the greeting cards I took photos of, such as fuzz, adhesive strings and so forth. I'm glad I see those things so that I can remove them. I didn't know anything about cameras just two days ago, so a little research proved to be a good thing. Below is the camera I bought and a few pics I snapped with it.
