New toy: Canon S3 IS

Writing about web page http://www.canon.co.uk/For_Home/Product_Finder/Cameras/Digital_Camera/PowerShot/PowerShot_S3_IS/

It’s my birthday in just over a month, but I’ve got my main present early this year :)

As we are off on holiday to visit my parents in South Africa in a few days time, Steph bought me the Canon S3 IS (bargin at £250 from Pixmania) to replace my aging Canon A40. I’ve not had much of a chance to play with it yet, but I’ll have loads of time on holiday. Only problem around the house is that poor Maggie is afraid of it :( I think there must be some high frequency sounds coming from it when the lense extends as she goes all pathetic whenver I turn the camera on (even if she can’t see it happening), poor thing.

The A40 went with me last year to South Africa on safari. It was ok, but I was very jealous of my Dad’s more up to date camera. So with this in mind, I decided it was time for an update. As DP Review puts it:

The PowerShot S3 IS features:

  • 12x optical zoom lens with USM and UD lens element
  • Optical Image Stabilizer
  • 6.0 Megapixel CCD
  • Larger size 2.0 Vari-angle LCD
  • 30fps VGA movies with stereo sound and Photo in Movie feature
  • DIGIC II, iSAPS and Flexizone AF/AE for fast, precise results and 2.3 fps continuous shooting performance
  • 20 shooting modes and My Colors photo effects
  • High ISO Auto and ISO 800 for low light flexibility
  • Widescreen (16:9) recording

Hopefully I can compete for the best photos this time around…at least I can’t blame the tools this time.

Cubicle protection!

Writing about web page http://www.thinkgeek.com

We will be going through a possible little office cubicle shuffle soon and I overheard people talking about cubicle privacy and it reminded me of these:
