Hehehe… In this post, I’ll take about my new camera also 😉
Showed you this picture before, my 3 IXUS-es. My whole collection *LOL*
Left: My newest IXUS bought it from Kuching, Canon IXUS 80 IS, the biggest of all! The cheapest of all! Got it at RM999
Middle: Just retired IXUS bought it from KL, Canon IXUS i zoom, I think I’ll ask my bro to assemble it and do some soldering to the wires 😛 That should fix the problem, happened to find out about it last night in a forum hehehe… If it’s fixed, HURRAY! I have two cameras to use 😛 Lasted 2 and half years.
Right: The first generarion IXUS bought it from Singapore and the most expensive one. Lasted 1 year only -.-”
Here’s a combo photos of all the 3 IXUS-es, see the differences of the designs and sizes and of course the colours 😛
I like to take macro shoots and all these 3 served me very well! The photo qualities are always exceptional!
Let’s start with the first IXUS, got this in December 2003 in Singapore. My dad bought it and then I’m the hogger and ended up became mine *LOL* What to do? I’m the one who used it the most, the rest of my family members didn’t use it much, might as well give it to me hahaha… This one doesn’t have optical zoom, just digital zoom. However, it took fantastic macro photos. This is how I discovered the fun of macro, thanks to this camera.
Next, second IXUS, got it at RM1300+ at Low Yat, KL somewhere in January 2006. Gave me tonnes of problem and sent it in and out of Canon to fix as the problem could only be discovered by luck. The battery contact was faulty! Then I found out the macro seemed not working but in fact there’s no problem with it, you can only use the macro when you use optical zoom else it’s just normal photo, it won’t change to macro mode automatically even after you choose the macro mode. Got pretty nervous when it reached the one year mark but good thing it was OK and lasted another 1 and half year. Phew… Then E18 came…
The latest IXUS, RM999 only with tonnes of freebies but not all useful *LOL* Except the SD cards(1GB and 2 GB), neck strap, tripod, screen protector and casing. This camera is very bulky unlike the previous two. It’s quite pain in the ass to bring it around 😛 However, the photos quality is pretty good and with my shaky hands, the IS is really useful and great for taking photos in low light condition. The macro was quite good coupled with the IS. I haven’t use much of it though as there’s not much events going on and do not have any outings to shoot lots and lots of photos. I haven’t camwhored with it too! 😛
These are the freebies that I got from buying this new camera at Sarawak ICT Expo 2008. Hopefully this camera can last me for at least another 3 years. *CROSS MY FINGERS* For your record, I had taken almost 600 photos with it hahaha… All the photos in this post were taken with my sis’ Olympus.
You can see some of my selected photos taken with my cameras in irenelaw.com
That’s all for the post today. Enjoy your day! Hehehe…
