Sunset At The Park

Testing Out a New Camera at the Park…

I bought a digital point & shoot today and tested it out at the park.  So far I’m not very happy with it.  It feels like I’m handcuffed, wearing a girdle and stuck in traffic: it’s slow and there is too much restriction.  We’ll see how it goes tomorrow as I’m going to take it to the Reifel Bird Sanctuary.  It would be nice to have something a little smaller to carry around.  But who knows, maybe I’m just a DSLR kinda gal.

I’d love to get any recommendations on what cameras people are using out there for all the amazing shots of gardens and food I see you taking.  If you shoot with something you like I’d be overjoyed if you’d leave me a comment and let me know.

    I always liked my Canon Powershot. Even though it is a few years old, it always did a good job.

    I currently use a Sony A100 DSLR for my pictures, but yes, I too feel like I am handcuffed and wearing a girdle. The thing is more weapon than camera, but it does take pretty pictures.

    Thanks, Katie. I think I’m spoiled now and have too high expectations for a point and shoot. Which one do you have? I tried the Canon Powershot SX10IS which may just have too many functions and not enough customization for me (meaning I’d really have to learn to use it correctly to get the best out of the camera). It got great reviews, but I don’t think it’s the right one for me.

    I use a nikon d80, nicely layed out and a button for everything! I also use a tripod for almost every indoor shot.

    Mind is a Samsung, but like you, I’m not as pleased as I’d like with the photos on my site. Some shots are nice, but overall, I’m interested in what others use. Your photos, btw, are lovely!
