Camera Update

All of my hard work and perseverance has paid off and I finally have a new digital camera. I got a good deal from the Sunrise camera shop in Tainan (more info about them to come later). I ended up with a Canon Powershot S5 IS. Here are a bunch of shots I have taken within the past few days while learning to use the camera.

  1. You will enjoy the DLSR. I look forward to seeing the results on your site.

    Every time I see the results from my DSLR I’m amazed at the difference from the old point and shoot camera. And I used to think those pictures were pretty good too!

  2. Congratulations, you truly needed one, promoting our little Tainan/Taiwan to the world.

    Looking forward to seeing the new results.

  3. I’ll be out there on the hunt for lots of great photos for sure. Tainan has so many intersting places to shoot to so I won’t be bored.

    It isn’t a DSLR. They were way too expensive for me.

    So I picked up the Canon because

    A – It was cheap (about NT 10K)

    B – It blows away my old camera

    C – It got good reviews from Michael and sources online.

    One day I will get a DSLR. Just not in the foreseeable future.

  4. You got a nice blog, as well as nice photos there.. I hope to see more photos from all over Taiwan here in your blog!

  5. mild seven,
    Right you are. I just looked at this review and it says Canon called it “a technological bridge between Canon’s advanced point and shoot compact digital cameras and its entry-level digital SLR cameras.”

    It looks pretty damn good to me. Is the video as good as they say? That’s one thing my DSLR won’t do!

  6. I was surprised by the video. I took several from Yan Shui last night and will make a compilation of them soon.

  7. Nice photos of Taiwan! Thanks for sharing. For those of us unable to visit, it’s nice to live vicariously through the pictures. 🙂

  8. Thanks for the kind words everyone.
