I'm So Excited...finially purchased a pocket camera

My new 'Pocket Camera'

I've posed the question "which small camera" on this blog before. I have read your recommendations and researched, and looked, and pondered...what am I giving up to have a camera small enough to carry in my purse?

Saturday I took the plunge and purchased the Cannon PowerShot SX110.
Here are the things I liked about it.... 9mp, 10x zoom, manual choice of flash use, good auto modes (for quick shots), manual settings as well, and a great macro.

The 'icing on the cake' is only 4.4 x 2.8 x 1.8 in size...actually fits into my hand, I'm in love. A man might not consider this a true 'pocket camera'...but it will fit into a jacket pocket or perhaps a pair of dockers. As for my purse, I hardly know it's there.

I have to admit, I spent most of Saturday playing with my new toy.

I have the Rebel XTi...and two 'very nice' lenses.
Love this camera and I use it regularly to take photographs for commissioned portraits, still life setups, and to photograph my art. Yet, of late, it remains in my studio...just too big to keep with me all the time. I'm continually missing good photo ops.

I'm heading to NY in a couple of weeks to visit my daughter and grandson. I'm really looking forward to 'traveling light' with my new camera. I'm sure I will have more to say when I get home...for now, I'm excited with what I see.

Congratulations! I had the film version of that camera and loved it. I look forward to hearing more about the pictures you take with it. Your trip sounds like something to be looking forward to.

It's about time!!!

You were smart too (of course) ... not only did you go for a good size, but you got the 10x zoom.

Have fun with your family!! (don't eat too much of her delicious food!!!)

Yes, I'm looking forward to my trip out east. It's never long enough..but always good to spend the time with family.

You're so right...I had moaned, and labored over this decision way too long. The longer zoom in a small camera was something I really wanted. I will give you all a full report when I return.

Thanks to you both for your comments.
