new Camera!








My old camera broke recently when the boys dropped it one too many times. It is now possessed and all pictures are blurry in the face only, much like a recent horror film.
I was pretty stoked to get a new one and did a lot of research before scouring the internet for the cheapest thing around. I finally found the exact one I was looking for at the best deal of the century. I got a Canon SD800IS Elph. It is the exact size of a credit card (we checked), a little thicker but still fits in my pocket. The screen is pretty big and it has 7.1 megapixels. It rocks in so many ways. So far I am getting used to it but it has a lot of really cool features like color spotting (my phrases for finding only one color in a shot) and it will do that while taking video. It also holds up to 30 minutes of video so I won't need a portable video camera. Here are the best shots I got at the park (not a lot as it is blurry and I am still working on figuring out its tricks) It usually ranges from $300-$500.00 new and I got it for a whopping $100 as almost new. I found it in Ohio at this price from a local newspaper add, found it on Oodle.com which was great! Not a scratch and it came with all the original equipment. What a steal!

I tried to upload some video but had some problems. So I will try to take some better footage and upload again. Hopefully some good cake shots of Alex!

Awesome deal!!! I just got a new camera too, but not nearly as good a deal! I got the Canon SD900 elph. I don't think mine does that cool color thing though...darn.
