Could You Take My Picture? Cause I Won’t Remember…Yeah…

What a quick and fast week! I wonder why January seemed to drag on forever and now February is just rushing to the finish line. Hmmm…Well before we know it Monday will be back again. BUT I have a few very important things I have to do this weekend. One of which I need all your photo genius support!!

I really need to buy a new digital camera. My camera I have been using is a Canon Powershot SD720. It’s old & for some reason decided to just stop taking quality shots for me. Oh well. I did get a return check from my Closing which means I have about $150 to spend on a good digital camera.

I would love to buy a very professional camera with all the different lenses but that day will have to come a lil bit later.
So Let me ask you:

What Digital Camera Do you have and Do you Love it?
 Is it Canon or Nikkon?


You all probably know a lot better than I do so I really would appreciate any advice on the subject. I have my eye on this New Canon Beauty: The Canon Powershot A2200. I don’t think it’s even out yet. It’s supposed to be in the U.S. by January 2011…and it’s not. I’ll have to do some research. It’s got 14.1 megapixels, 4x Wide Angle (28mm) Optical Zoom & a whole bunch of other goodies. I want to take my blog to the next step and I think a better digital camera & maybe video blogs will help that happen!


In addition to my found money I will be working at the International Great Beer Expo this weekend to pay for the camera. Weather permitting. It’s a favor for a friend who works at a local brewery called Defiant in my hometown. I will be representing the Brewery & getting to sample a whole bunch of different beers from all around the world! I’m a more of a wine girl but I’ll try anything once! It should be a treat. =)

Do any of you have any cool plans this weekend?
Have a good one!!

I made the switch to Nikon last year, after being a lifetime Canon devotee. I couldn't be happier. For what I paid for my camera, I got a whole lot more than Canon was offering in their similar model. I am sure that when I have to replace mine I'll buy another Nikon. Also, I've a most excellent experience dealing with their repair center & customer service, because I just recently dropped and broke my camera.

I recently got the Sony Cybershot (on Balck Friday)! It's so easy to handle and takes great pics! So many features!! But I also have a Canon - LOVE!
Happy Weekend lovely!

I would only get a Nikon if you're prepared to spend some serious money on it. The hubs and I are on our 3rd Coolpix and while it takes pictures, they definitely are not the best pictures.

For our next camera I really want to switch to Canon. During the 2 minutes I worked at Best Buy I found that almost everyone I worked with in cameras would suggest a Canon over a Nikon nearly every time.

I use a Canon. I don't have any fun plans, yet. Maybe watching the super bowl? I'm new to your blog and I'm so glad I stumbled across you today! It was a pleasure to *meet* you!

I have a Canon (it's like 4 years old lol) and the battery runs out quickly. I actually went to Best Buy yesterday to look for a new one before Fashion Week & I really liked the Nikon ones. I found a few that weren't bulky but took good quality photos like the professional ones.

I love my canon digital camera so I would go with that one!! I've had good luck with them!

I love that song! haha do you know that it's actually about this one time he got so high and streaked in the airport?! regardless one of my fav songs in the 90's :D have fun camera shopping

Dancing Branflake said...

Oh, good luck. I am not a camera person. I love mine to pieces and I have no clue what it is.

Claire Kiefer said...

Fun! I'm in Orange County hanging out with friends this weekend--it's sunny and breezy and we're about to head out to a local brewery. Love it!

I have a Fuji camera so i'm no help really, sometimes i think it's not how good your camera is, it's just the eye and the talent of the person holding it. Although having a decent camera helps.

I've only ever heard good reviews about Nikons though.

haze said...

I want one too! ♥

I wish I knew more about cameras but I really don't.
Have fun at the beer thing, it sounds like it will be fun :).
I am hitting my first wine and cheese bar this weekend with some girlfriends. Should be a good time :)
Have a great weekend.

I have a Nikon and I love it. I vote for Nikon.

Wendy said...

I use a Nikkon which works ok. Like you, I have dreams of one day owning a top of the line camera with all of the bells and whistles, too.(Sigh) :)

Working the beer expo, huh? My weekend plans are no where near as fun as yours, lol. I'll be deep cleaning the house. Trade ya! Enjoy, Melanie!!! :D

Cafe Fashionista said...

I haven't owned a camera in years; thus, I don't think I'd be much help in that department - sorry.

I plan on spending the weekend catching up on some work, and reading Melissa de la Cruz's "Blue Bloods" series - I am obsessed!! :)

Christopher said...

I want to work a beer fest! I'd have so much fun. I'd get fired and probably arrested but I'd have a wonderful time.
