Whenever someone holds up their flip video camera at an event, I usually show off my Canon SI5 [now upgraded to a Canon Powershot SX10IS 10MP Digital Camera with 20x Wide Angle Optical Image Stabilized Zoom]. So many people have asked me about my camera that I decided to write this post about it. After researching several models on the market, I bought this one on July 3, 2008.
Sure, it’s a bit bulkier- okay a lot more bulky – than a flip, but it’s more than a quick video capture device.
Why I love my Canon Powershot so much . . .
Other owners: Mari Smith and Lorelle Van Fossen both had theirs at BlogWorld Expo – need I say more about the cool factor? And, I’m welcoming Matt Batt to the club. 🙂
Multi-purpose: digital photographs plus video
Simple: press a button to record, take out the SD card and transfer
Display: flip out and around screen, my Canon G2 introduced me to this feature
Quality: if concert videos look and sound amazing, of course a quick interview here and there is going to look impressive
Brand: on the day after we got married, my husband and I drove back to Chicago in separate cars. He drove straight home. I stopped by K’s Merchandise Mart to buy a camera for our honeymoon. It was a Canon T50 with one lens. I surprised him when I came home with the camera. He surprised me with lenses and equipment on special occasions. Is there any other camera for me? I don’t think so.
