You’re next, tennis ball! lol on Flickr.
Our baby is now 4 months old and we’ve had him for over a month. In case people are new to our photostream, Oliver is a Bo-dach (half brindle Boston Terrier and half Dachshund). He runs like and has the long body of a Dachshund, but has more Boston Terrier traits. It has been so exciting for us seeing him grow, still a ways to go!
It has been a week for me without a camera, and today I finally have a new one in my hands. I wrote about the death of my camera here. We purchased this camera for me today! It is the newest version on the market at the moment. I’m still in the market for a lovely dSLR. However I wanted something simpler for now, but a little more complex than my last camera, which was a Canon Powershot S5 IS. I did a lot of research and reading about this camera, and I decided to go with it for several reasons. It has a pet setting, and with a puppy, I thought that would be crucial since he is bouncing all over the place, lol. The image quality seemed excellent, going by the feedback I had read, and I have to agree. The photos seem much more sharp than my older camera (which was MUCH more expensive, mind you!). The macro setting is amazing, the old camera left weird shadows. The lighting is perfect on this camera, as I can shoot in cloudy/dim conditions and there is amazing clarity. The old camera, you had to count on a crisp blue day to take decent shots and I really had to do a lot of extra dressing up on images taken indoors or on cloudy days. I’m thrilled with the action setting on my new baby, and am pleased to get some of Oliver’s expressions, whereas my old Canon I couldn’t do such photos. I could go on and on. I’m just thrilled and happy to have a new camera to work with and to expand my abilities, and to not feel as limited with as I did with my previous one. So say hello to Blanche Devereaux (that is the new camera’s name, lol)!!! …and may she be the worldly lady I know she is.
