So I finally got the camera that I ordered from Amazon! It is a fantastic piece of equipment. It is a Canon Powershot SD780is. It looks like this:
I have veered away from the DSLR days due to the fact that it was slightly inconvenient for me to carry around such a large camera. One thing that I miss about having it was the manual control I had over each shot. So my next camera was a powershot G9, this camera was basically a combination of a point and shoot and an SLR, however, it was still quite bulky for a point and shoot. That camera is now in the hands of some dirtbag thief now, which afforded me the opportunity to purchase a new camera. This camera is tiny! Probably the same dimensions of a credit card and as thick as half a deck of cards. In addition to its pocket-able size, the features are astounding. 12.1 megapixels with a 3x optical zoom and the ability to shoot high definiton video!
I took some test shots and a short video to see its capabilities, needless to say i was impressed and very satisfied. Now all I have to do is keep this camera from getting stolen. Here is a photo that I took along with a short (11min.) video of me walking around the neighborhood. Enjoy!
Video won’t upload, sorry.
