You guys know that I don’t have my own camera. I’m just using our family camera which we got since I was in High School. It’s pretty old, right? It takes great photos but I feel it that it lacks features that I badly need. *cough* macro shots *cough* We still use it though, but I use my new camera more often now. What bugs me with our old camera is that it needs 2 AA batteries, which is really inconvenient for me.
I waited for a month for me to get a hold of this since it is always out of stock. It’s definitely worth the wait though. 😀 I bought this from a local online seller and it saved me a lot of money! If I bought this in the mall, it would have cost me 14,000 – 16, 000 Php (about $325 – $372 USD), but I only bought this for 9,700 Php (about $225 USD). It’s a pretty good deal, right? ^_^
It doesn’t include a memory card and a case, but it’s no big deal. I can just buy those. 😀 There is also a user manual which I forgot to include in the photo. :S
It’s smaller than my hand and it just fits in my pocket. I won’t put it in there though because I tend to be careless. I initially wanted the Powershot A3200, which costs less, but I realized I loved the features of the IXUS 220 HS more, as well as its image quality.
It’s even smaller than my phone, though it’s slightly thicker. Here are some sample shots I took:
I wouldn’t be able to achieve this with our old camera. :stars
I am really happy with my new camera. 🙂 I can now take HQ photos and even videos, and some creative filters, and other effects. YAY!! ^_^
