We started to own a digital camera in early 2004. Lambat la jugak considering that time dah pelbagai models berada di pasaran. Why at last in 2004 we finally bought a camera? Very simple answer, because we have a son, Harith. Sejak lahir dah byk ambil gambar, tapi camera pinjam. Nak pinjam sampai biler? Budak cepat membesar, nanti byk pulak termiss his progress.
Our 1st camera was Sony Cybershot DSC F77, 4.0mp. Model nie yg lens boleh pusing2, main reason why we chose this model. Senang nak snap gambar sendiri ;)
Next camera was Canon Ixus 500, 5.0mp. Time nie berpikir2 nak jual sony cybershot. Canon Ixus produces better quality picture. So tanpa disedari Sony Cybershot bagai dilupakan. Until one day teringat nak guna the camera, cari2 tak jumpa. Baru terperasan the camera dah hilang. Hilang kat opis Azrul, that was the last place the camera was stored/seen. Ralat la jugak coz that was our 1st camera, which cost us about RM1500. Kalau jual separuh harga pun sedap la jugak. Anyway memang takde rezeki...
We once again upgraded our camera to a better model, Canon Ixus 750, 7.1mp. We have it in Satin Beige color. The old Ixus 500 was sold to our brother in law. We used this camera about 1 year before Azrul decided to buy a semi-pro camera. After we got another new camera, we let Harith play around with the Ixus 750. Harith started snap pictures, especially his favorite character, Thomas & Friends. He even loves to snap pictures of himself. But being a 4-yr(time tu la) old kid, of coz he will be very careless in handling the camera. I found the camera laying under a bed with the lens open. The lens were stuck and cannot be closed. We sent the camera to Canon service which would cost us RM500 to replace the lens. We decided to let go the camera as it is.
The semi-pro camera that we bought was Canon PowerShot S5 IS, 8.0mp. It is big. Tak boleh la I nak bawak suka2 hati letak dlm handbag, amatlah tak practical. Mulalah rindu balik nak guna camera kecik. Paling tak puashati maser our 2nd trip to Bali last year. Bila2 raser nak snap picture with single hand memang susah. So mula la berkira2 to get another camera. Tak secanggih our previous Ixus pun takpe, janji ader and it must be small.
There goes next camera, Canon Ixus i7 zoom, 7.1mp. Puashati! hehehe... :-D
Seems like we are so into Canon product. Yup! very true... For a digital camera, we will definitely go for Canon. Good quality for still picture and video.
