My Precious: Canon Powershot SX500 IS Digital Camera!

After nearly 2 months of Blogging and taking blog photos with my HTC One X, I have finally upgraded to a proper camera! I bought a super-zoom bridge type camera, Canon Powershot SX500 IS from Currys. It has a 30x, 24mm wide-angle zoom lens, 3 inch LCD screen, 16 megapixel resolution, HD Video 720p, full manual controls and a Digic 4 processor. It also has an Auto mode that detects 32 scenes and a range of Creative Filters which I can't wait to try out! Oh and it also has a pop up flash which  sits on top of the lens barrel (I always forget that). It came with a memory card and rechargable batteries/charger; it takes a Lithium-Ion battery. I purchased a memory card for it as it won't work without one and bought the camera bag too.

 I absolutely love already, mainly because of its size. Its not too big and its not too small either; but is a rough shape of a cube while not being very big. From just looking at it, I can tell you that if you are looking for something pocketable or if you want something big and chunky, this camera is not for you. Even though it is quite small, it is definitely not a camera for your pocket. I love it though, its perfect for me; fits just right in most of my rather huge handbags. Its so cute!

After exploring the camera a bit, I can safely say that the menu is extremely easy to use. Cannot wait to snap some photos tomorrow!
