As you know, since last year, I am a Canon convert. I love the range of cameras they have, and I find it amazing that I take these bright and vivid photos with amazing clarity from a light blue girly point and shoot camera.
Some of you may know that my camera drowned in the blue waters of Pelong right before Ramadhan. It was unsalvageable even though I washed it immediately with clean freshwater. Saltwater got into the nooks and crannies of it’s mind and brain.
So for the past few weeks, I have been camera-less, which is really sad because it was Hari Raya. Truth be told I didn’t really feel like going for raya without it.
I’ve been the owner of a camera for the past 6 years. I feel that a camera is the most important tool that a blogger should invest in. It makes all the difference between an OK post, and an AWESOME post. I know I don’t own a DSLR, but after owning 4 cameras, I know for a fact that when you know your camera, you do not need one to take amazing photos.
However you still do need a good camera to take good photos. The difference between a good camera and a bad one I feel, is the flash. I hate photos that are not clear. When there is not enough light, it will be blurry. When a photo is blurry, there is nothing I can do on the computer to salvage it. So yes flash is important.
Anyway, all this camera talk is brought about because I just bought myself, a new camera!!!
It is the most expensive camera I’ve ever bought. I actually wanted to get it back in March for my birthday (the older version, Canon S90 since S95 was not out yet) after reading RAVE reviews but I thought it was such a waste to get a new one since my old camera was working so nicely. Also it was a pretty big chunk out of my wallet so I was pretty hesitant. And I’m glad I waited. After Turquoise drowned, I started saving and yeay! Finally got the s95.
As of now, I am officially, semi-pro.
