    New camera!!!

    My birthday was yesterday and I got a new camera! YAY!!! No more 2 megapixel fujifilm finepix! Ok, delirious excitement aside. It's a canon powershot SX110 IS, with 10x optical zoom and a great macro. Here are some pics I took today.

    Nice pics and plants. Nice gift for a birthday. You should get a add-on macro lens that allows you to use your 10x zoom so you can get closeups like this. It is really helpful and will make your great camera even better!

    You don't necessarily need a new camera, the pic above was only 5mp, my camera is 6mp max and I find that 6mp is more than enough. Unless your are willing to buy a DSLR, 6mp is a plenty for most people.

    lol ant, you have no idea... My old camera held 22 pictures at a time, was 2 megapixels, and would run out its battery life within an hour. I did manage to take some decent pictures with it, since I had it for 5 years and learned how to use it . That's an AMAZING macro shot dewey. I might consider getting an add-on macro lens in the future. For now, I'm happy with the macro I have cause it's WAY better than the old camera (I couldn't even take pics of dews at all... came out blurry every time. )

    Yeah, your camera takes great macro pics. I was just adding that if you want those extreme close-ups you can get an add-on for around $40-55 from Amazon. If you are interested in getting one in the future PM me and I will give you the name of it.
