new best friend

If you love taking pictures, you want to take your camera everywhere with you. This is the case with me. I literally take my camera everywhere...well, everywhere that I could. In some cases, the size of my camera prevented me from taking my camera everywhere for whatever reason. For instance, the last time I climbed Pinnacle, I brought a backpack with water for my dog and my camera. That particular climb I had a nasty fell and luckily I fell forward and not backwards on my very expensive camera. But I thought after that climb that I would never bring my big camera back on future hikes for fear of me falling and crushing my camera. This is just one example of why I bought what is quickly becoming my new best friend, the Canon Powershot SD 790 IS Digital Elph. It's so wonderful to be able to stick my camera in my pocket and go. Also, I love how easy it is for OTHERS to take pictures. With my Canon 30D, it was hard for non-camera users to use my camera if I wanted to be IN the pictures. This smaller Canon is great for that! I will still use my 30D for photoshoots and nature shots, etc...but the Powershot is a wonderful camera for snapshots at the game, dinner with friends, or even a climb on Mt. Pinnacle.

Here are a few recent shots I've taken with my new camera:
