About a year ago, Jeff and I were heading off to New York City. I knew I wanted to take tons of pictures but our digital camera was very outdated and bulky. We started a search for a new camera and after reading many reviews, we purchased a Canon Power Shot A540. It is compact and lightweight. It also takes pretty good pictures! This is very important because we take lots of pictures.
I use the camera almost on a daily basis. I take pictures of our homeschool science experiments, field trips, holidays, pets, and family vacations. These are moments that I want to remember forever. I want to share these memories with others also. I will be able to do that by scrapbooking the photos, emailing them to friends and family, or putting them on a cd. The possibilities are endless.
Recently, we snapped a photo of a beautiful barn at a living history museum near our house:
I also have my eye on a digital SLR camera. The Canon Digital Rebel XT looks very appealing with its 8.0 megapixels. I have seen photos taken with this particular camera and they are very crisp. If I ever get this camera, I will use it to take professional type photos of my children. In fact, I think this is what I need for Christmas!
