I honestly don’t know a THING about photography, and I so wish I did. I look at all these other blogs with beautiful photography, and I see SO many of my friends who are so talented starting businesses of their own taking pictures.
Well friends. I am a point-and-shoot kinda girl. It’s not that I don’t want to know how to take phenomenal pictures, it’s that I don’t have the time to learn, or really try. Ha. You try being a single pug momma….
Anyways, on to the subject at hand. I have always been a Sony cybershot girl, by default really. They had a tiny pink camera, and I wanted it. So I got it. It took good pics, whatever, nothing I really paid attention to. I didn’t even know how to turn the flash on for like 3 months. I kid you not.
Obsessed. It is the world’s thinnest digital camera, with an ultra-wide angle lens and a 5x optical zoom. Also shoots HD video. HELLO hair tutorials, here we come!
The HS System is designed for shooting in low-light situations to reduce blurring, and help capture more brilliant, detailed images.
Sign. me. up.
It is also super tiny, and it has a matte finish to it which is nice, so it doesn’t slip out of my hands if I have had one too many cocktails, knowwhatimsayin?
I have really loved the pics I have been taking so far. They are SO much more clear than any of the ones I have taken with other cameras.
Right now, Canon is doing a project called Your Second Shot aimed at helping people recreate moments that didn’t turn out right the first time. If I had to pick a moment that didn’t turn out as perfect as I’d like it to, I would pick the photo of me and none other than, Miss Underwood.
While this was the hands down the COOLEST moment of my life, I had the darn camera on some funky setting, so the picture was blurry and the lighting was not the greatest. Sad story. At least I still GOT the photo, so I was a happy girl, BUT I wish I had had my elf camera back then!
Since I can’t exactly go hunt Carrie down and make her take a re-do, HA, I had to get creative. So My ‘second shot’ would be ME, dressed as Carrie for Halloween. HA!
(However please note: Canon, if you would like to set up a re-do with me and Miss Underwood, I would be completely open to such an arrangement.) just sayin’. 🙂
As you can see, this picture is SO much more clear, and detailed.
Have you ever had a great moment that was lost because the photo didn’t turn out? Canon is on a mission to help real people recapture these moments. They are traveling the country helping people recapture moments lost, from a bet involving a mechanical bull to a father’s surprise birthday party. How sweet!
