My Camera Is Here!



Some kind of winter berry bush at work.

with a nest tucked away,


and rain drops dripping from the berries.

Not bad for my first try!  Just had to rip my package open, charge my battery and search for a subject on lunch break.

I looked at lots of cameras, but because of my lack of knowledge, I went with an easy one.  I can play and let the camera do the work.  When I get braver, I can try my own settings. 

I chose a Canon Power Shot SX200 IS, 12.1 Megapixels, with lots of zoom.  I purchased from QVC because I can try it for thirty days and no matter the reason, I can send it back.  Just these few pictures are all I've taken but if the weather is good...Look Out!

Congratulations! You'll have lots of fun with it. I had a Canon PowerShot a few years ago, and it took wonderful pictures! Love your berries. :)

Nice pictures! Have fun with your new camera. I should have knit you some fingerless mittens with a flip top mitt.

I have the same camera and use it only when I am not getting dirty in the barn. The close up of the berries is sensational. Enjoy!

Thanks for visiting.

Good grief I wondered what that infernal clicking sound was this morning...Those of us on the west coast get up a little later you know. Pacific time and all that.
I love the raindrop on the berry. That is a really great shot.

Good shots! I have a Canon powershot p&s as well. It's been a faithful little camera for about 4 years and is still shooting away!

Good pick!

Great shots - I love the water dripping from the berries, and the fence post. Those are my favorite out of the four shots.

I'm currently taking a photography course through NYIP (New York Institute of Photography) and they say that it really doesn't matter WHAT kind of camera you have - if you have the eye for taking photos - seeing the opportunities - and knowing some simple techniques - you can get a great picture - even from those throw away cameras!
