I've had a Kodak East Share camera for a couple years. Before that I had another Kodak - and thought the Easy Share would be a good replacement. The first camera last over 10 years - the Easy Share - not so long. It would shut down at odd times - just close up and say that the AA batteries needed recharged. They didn't - and after turning it on and off a zillion times it would finally recognize the batteries and let me take photos - in the mean time, I lost a lot of chances at good shots. I got so frustrated that I finally started looking around for another camera. Diane and Fergie - two quilting buddies - both have the Canon Power Shot SD1200 IS - and recommended it. I read reviews and then ordered the camera.
And I LOVE it. It takes amazing photos - has a LI-ion battery, instead of AA batteries - and I've had it for two weeks and haven't needed to recharge the battery - and I take a LOT of pictures. Plus Ben has taken dozens of pictures with it - and looked at the pictures over and over on the camera - and still the battery doesn't need re-charged - did I mention I LOVE this camera,
and it is hot pink too - which is even better!!!!
I like the auto focus for up close, really up close, close photos!! It adjusts itself, then focuses again and takes the best shots. I had fun the first day finding things to take super close ups of. So here they are.
Froget-me-nots in the porch garden . . .
Flowering tree by the lake . . .
Close up of the flowers . . .
White Bleeding heart - this pot hangs on the front porch railing - safe from deer . . .
Look at that raindrop - didn't I tell you the close up was amazing ?
Close up of raindrops on Bleeding Heart leaf . . .
More tulips at the fairgrounds . . . it's tulip season . . .
Close up of one of the trees in our little grove in the back yard . . .
Raindrops on rose leaves - I love the outline of red on these leaves - hopefully soon we'll have flowers . . .
A close up of our door knocker - the grandsons love it . . .
And just a few more raindrops on leaves . . .
Thanks for stopping by - and you'll be seeing more photos from my new camera soon - I'm sure of that. Thanks Diane and Fergie for the great recommendation.
