After the incident with Little Bean the other day, my camera is taking even worse pictures (if you can imagine that). Seriously, I've been trying to do tutorials and I just can't. I feel as though I am at a total standstill. So, with the help of my dear friend, and photographer, Jill, I am trying to find the perfect camera for me and for my budget.
She has convinced me that a Canon is a great way to go (which is what I've pretty much always had). I don't pretend to know how to use an SLR, nor do I think I really want to try...I don't think I have the time or the patience. One of the cameras that she has recommended is the Canon PowerShot SX20IS. There is also a Canon PowerShot SX30IS for the same price with more features (but no reviews that I can find). Does anybody have this camera? Maybe it's new on the market?
I would LOVE to hear any advice on cameras that anyone may have. Please keep in mind that I am more than an amateur...I don't know very much at all. All I really want to be able to do is be able to blur out the background and be able to take really close up pictures of smaller objects. I am not trying to win any competitions here. :)
Thanks so much! Tutorials to come!
