CanonPowerShotSX500IS.jpgLast week I bought a new camera, a Canon PowerShot SX500 IS.  A few days ago I took it out side to give it a try.  Mostly to try out the zoom.  It has a 30x optical zoom.  The camera itself it pretty nice.  It is a in between a point/shoot and a DSLR.  Has the ease of use of the point and shoot.  With some of the bells and whistles of a DSLR.  Not too sure what all the features are yet and how to use them.  But I will figure them out.  The CD that came with it has info on what it can do.  Have not looked at that yet.  Below are some of the pictures with and with out the zoom all the way.  Shoot in the same spot and didn’t move.  Very impressed how they turned out.

CanonPowerShotSX500IS.jpgWell broke down and bought a new camera.  It is the one I was talking about a few time the past few months.  The Canon PowerShot SX500 IS.  Future Shop are a really good deal on it this time.  They has $70 of the list price.  So I had to go for it.  Glad I got it today because it was the last one in the store.  They all so had memory cards on sale as well.  Got a Lexar 16GB SDHC.  Got a super good deal.  The camera and the memory card with taxes was still less then the list price of the camera before taxes was originally.  Right now I am waiting for the battery to charge.  Had a bit of trouble getting one side the strap thought.  But after a bit of swearing got it.  Will be back with more and a few same pictures some time later or tomorrow.

Back in early October was talking about getting a new camera.  The Canon PowerShot SX500 IS.  Still thinking about getting more so now that it is on sale at Future Shop.  They have it on sale for $300.  That is $50 off.  So if you add on tax and the environmental fee it would come close to $350.  That is better that is still better than $400.  Would really like a new camera.  But do I really need one.  This is what I have to think over.  All so it is getting close to that fun time of year.  So that money could be put to use buying gifts for others.  This is bit of a dilemma.

CanonPowerShotSX500IS Thinking about getting a new camera.  Have had my Sony Net Sharing Cam for about four years.  While I love this camera for its simple to use and size factors.  Want some thing with some more features.   Start to look at the DSLR’s but man they are super pricey.  So started to look a the middle of the road ones.  The ones between point and shoot and DSLR’s.  Then seen one that looks pretty cool.  The Canon PowerShot SX500 IS.  First off it is a Canon.  It has some awesome specs, 16MP with 30x optical zoom and is wide angle as well.  It all so shoots 720p HD video in which you can zoom while filming.  I am guessing a lot of these cameras that have HD will not yet you zoom while filming.  Plus all kinds of other stuff.

Going to do more research on it.  I know it is a new model that came out in September.  Thinking by now there might be some reviews and or footage on YouTube.
