A new love of my life ;-)


I had been looking for the one for a long time. I had searched and searched. I had researched, looked at all positives and negatives, the advantages and the disadvantages. I had asked for advice from some knowledgable ones and also referred to other available knowledge databases. And finally had zeroed in on the one. But there never seemed an auspicious moment for the one to actually arrive in my life. The auspicious moment was because of the cost factor associated :-p.

Nope! I am not talking about Sri, though he is the love of my life, the major love of them all :). Neither does it mean that he is being replaced :-D. Hehehehee. He is the one who can never be replaced ;-). Me getting senti (Get back to the topic lady!!) :(.

Ok ok OK!! I'll stop kidding and tell you what this is all about. Ta-da!! Meet my new digital camera the Canon Powershot S2 IS :).




I won't really go into the technical details of that. You can find all those and the review here at DPreview. Basically it is a 5 MP and 12x total zoom camera. Its very nice to handle. The weight is a bit more, but the comfort level is high. I'm already high on it. Oh no, looks like another thing to which I'm already addicted!! :-D :-D.

The image resolution is amazing and I'm totally loving it ;-). Here is one of the first few photos I took:




The actual resolution of the pic is 2592 x 1944 pixels. Here's another snap, this time a shadow portrait:




We have a handy-cam using which I had been taking pics all this while. In fact, it was being used more for taking photos than for videos. Also, I have some kind of a passion for photography. The handy-cam's 640 x 480 was not exactly enough for me to be creative. That was the reason why we were on the lookout for a camera anyways. Now looks like I've found the right one :). We also have bought a set of rechargeable batteries. a recharging system and a 1-GB(!!!) SD card for it. And I'm having fun, baby!!

Meanwhile I'm just back from Washington D.C today and am totally conked. It was a pretty tiring trip. And, this post was supposed to be written last week, but I never found the time because of work + trip preparations :-D (Nice excuses this time). Yup, the Canon went with us to Washington D.C and you can expect a huggggggggggge post and lot of photos in the post next time. Consider that as a warning ;-) :-D.
