I have a new toy

Yesterday I got myself a new camera and i am one happy girl.
I wanted a camera that would take good photos which I could put on my blog but I didn't want to have to sell the house to pay for it.
My old camera is an Olympus and I have always been happy with it but I felt that I should be able to take better photos.
We have done a ton of research on the web about different camera and other brands but I always kept coming back to the Olimpus.
Yesterday we received an e-mail from one of our local stores that they were having a one day sale so off we went.
I knew that I wanted a camera that had more zoom power than my older one so I was very happy when the salesman showed me another Olympus that had 10 x the optical zoom.
After he told me all about it I was sold.
Today I have been reading the instructions and clicking away like a kid in a lolly shop.
Anyway I took a photo of a vessel that I made several years ago with my new camera----




and my old camera-----







The true colour is the new camera photo----can you see why I am happy :}}}

Doreen, I am looking for a new camera too. My dear little casio is feeling very tired.

Is your camera hand bag size and easy to use?

Your new camera certainly has the wow factor, as has the vessel you made - those colours are gorgeous. Happy clicking!

Having a good camera makes a lot of difference. Your new one does great!

Good for you Doreen, and I hope this latest camera continues to take pleasing shots. It certainly looks a lovely photo, although I'm not concentrating on the 'photo', but rather the 'vessel' - what a beautiful creation, I just love it!! Happy snapping.

Dot said...

Love your vessel and your new camera takes wonderful photo's. Can really see the difference. I bought a new camera last year and love using it.

I can see why you are happy!!!
Taking pictures is so so time consuming when the camera is not the right one.

wow, what a difference!

I can never understand why people have to upgrade things that seem to be working okay...that is until I see a comparison between old and new! If I hadn't seen the pic with the new camera I would have wondered why you wanted a new one. Now I want a new one!

Doreen, it has been a while since i paid you a visit but as usual you have a great blog. The difference in colour is amazing no wonder you are sooooo happy

Congratulations on the new toy - looks like it does the job you want. I'm sure you will get the hang of it quickly, it was a good move to stick to Olympus, it is probably similar to the one you know. Look forward to more good shots.
