Now I think this is the camera that I want. The Canon SX200 IS. It's got almost everything an SLR has, but in mini form. Maybe it doesn't have everything a DSLR would, but it's probably smaller than my crappy camera now. One hitch? It's not released yet.... There's no reviews yet...
Supposedly it was supposed to come out at the end of this month. But every website I look at says 'temporarily out of stock'. IT'S MARCH 31st!!!! The month is over. Waaaa... what do I do???? Well, anyway, this is the runner up: Canon PowershotSX10 IS
So... does anyone know anything about this camera? It's Korean... Samsung. Probably only sold in Korea, because I can't find any reviews on the typical camera review sites. I did find this one blog entry about it on Naver: http://blog.naver.com/meancoco/130042068988
I've got the opportunity to buy a used Powershot s5 IS here in Seoul. The offer is 500,000 for the camera, all the included software and manuals, two memory cards plus a battery charger. The camera is about a year old. Is it worth it? Here are the specs: http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/canons5is/. I'm going to check out the camera on Saturday.
So, I was just about to go to bed when I stumbled across this photo I took in January. I don't think I liked it at first, but the more I look at it, the more I like it. I just wish that stupid streetlight wasn't in the frame... maybe I'll crop it out or something later.....
I didn't realize until after I came home and uploaded this photo, that you can see all the rays of sunshine. I really love this. It's not often that you can get a close-up of a rooftop. But, the hill was so steep here that I was walking right next to the roof from the house below. I wish that this was a little straighter. I didn't line up the roof tiles quite in line, it's slightly off-center. A view of Namsan and Seoul Tower from Inwangsan.
Though I've taken 2 photography courses, I still am far from being a halfway decent photographer. That being said, I do a lot of traveling and I'd like to be able to show off my photos and say "I took this shot" someday. This blog is mainly so I can get critiques from people out there in the world. Please feel free to tell me what you like and don't like. Any help would be appreciated.
