I bought a Canon Power Shot S3 IS yesterday at lunch. I think I got a great deal at Best Buy: $400.00. So far I love it. It feels great in my hands and we all know how important that is . . . “wink, wink.”
I bought a 2 GB memory card, too, for $30.00. That sounded like a good buy also. The guy said it should hold 600 pictures.
I can do almost everything with one hand and I figured out all of the features without using the book. I will use the book to actually learn what they are for, but the camera seems very easy to use.
It has a viewfinder which makes me feel like I have a real camera, not one of these new fangled contraptions the youngsters are using.
It’s 6.2 mega pixels, 12x optical and 4x digital zoom, takes an hour of video with stereo sound, takes 2.4 frames per second, zooms, goes wide, has a flip up flash, a 2.5 inch flip out screen, and just flat out looks cool. I have been taking silly, useless pictures from two to six just because I could (93 actually, which is definitely better than the 18 I could take with my old camera.)
I tried to post last night but I upgraded McAfee and it looks completely different and it has Parental Controls so naturally it kept me, the parent, away from Blogger. Just this morning I figured out I had all Blogger sites on my Blocked List. Life moves way too fast for me; everything is always changing. I prefer ruts.
I finished my application for the HR Certification test and submitted it. Now I just have to see if I’m accepted. In the mean time, I have to start studying. The test is in May. I’m not too worried as I passed the sample test without studying, but everyone says the real test is not easy. Plus, I have an image to maintain: once you start getting 4.0’s, people seem to expect it all of the time. The pressure is crushing.
While many blocks have been placed in the road of my blogging life, I think I have developed a plan. I can read blogs at work, I just can’t read comments or leave comments or post. So, I will read at work, I’ll copy and email the comments to work, then I’ll type up answers and write posts at work, then email them home to quickly post at night, then go pay attention to my husband (who is really jealous of you all.) See what I’m willing to do for you.
