Whoo hoo! I've got my new camera up and working (I think!) Several of you asked what kind I got.
I chose to get the Canon A540 for several reasons. I wanted a small camera that I could carry in my purse so I could take shots whenever and wherever! But, I wanted one that had some flexibility in upgrading. This one allows me to add lenses down the road if I need a wide angle, or telephoto lens. It is 6.0 mega pixels with 4x zoom.
I have practiced just a bit on my willing (sometimes) subjects... our cats! Here are a few of my first practice shots!
And - a shot out of our front window at the mounds of snow and our "plowed" road! We are supposedly in the line of another storm with another foot of snow possible. SO - I'm off to run a couple errands before it starts!!
