A tale of two camera’s

A couple of moons ago Mike talked me into going digital.  It took a long time to talk me into finally giving up film. He started me off with a small Fuji point and shoot and I loved it for a couple of years. Then we went on a road trip with family and I started playing with my sister in law’s Nikon D40.

After playing with hers for a while I really  NEEDED a big girl camera.

I went with the Nikon D40x. 


My Nikon has traveled with me EVERYWHERE and I continue to love it.


I am going to convention again this year and we leave soon.  I was going to just take my “purse camera”  (Panasonic Lumina)  but it seems the family wants to steal that one for Disney.  That leaves me lugging around the Nikon.  That Nikon gets heavy after a while.

Have you ever been to a convention? 

Not only to I walk a ton each day but we carry what we need all day.



So I just bought this….

Canon PowerShot SX500 IS 16.0 MP Digital Camera with 30x Wide-Angle Optical Image Stabilized Zoom and 3.0-Inch LCD $199.00



It is getting great reviews from and it is small enough that I will be able to get the shots that I want without the weight.  Another plus is that we will not have to take the camera backpack with us this year.  Do you know how hard it is to hide camera equipment in an SUV? 

I hope I like it as much as I think I will.  My mother in law as a Canon and she takes her around the world.  Wish me luck!
