I was looking for a new camera for a while now because my other one was not only very old, but also damaged. (My cat peed on it, and no I'm not kidding =/) It still worked after I cleaned it, but it was not only gross but also never quite worked the same afterwards.
So since I've been blogging quite a bit lately, and because I'm leaving for a backpacking trip in a little over 2 weeks I decided it was time for me to get a new one!
What I was looking for :
1) A better image quality (I had a 8,1 mpx and wanted a significant improvement)
2) A large back display
3) A light and portable model
4) A front display
5) A cool color =p
What I ended up getting : The Samsung PL121
- 14,2 mpx
- 5X optical zoom
- Front display and large back display
- HD camera
- It's pink! ♥
The front display is invisible when it's not open! How crafty =o The finish is also chrome which is really cute even though it does get dirty quickly.
This is the large back display. The picture is blurry because of course I had to use my old camera one last time to take pictures of the new one ^^
|Mwhahaha you can see me in the display :P|
Here you can see the front display =D How cool is it? I will be able not to look awkward when I take self portraits! Another plus is that you can see what the person who photographs you sees, which mean if you are like me and make weird poses every time someone points a camera at you, you can now see it before the picture is taken and take a better pose =p
Anyhow, I haven't taken that many pictures with it yet, but so far I really like the quality. It deals with situations that have a bad lighting much better than my old one and the modes are easy to understand and use! I cannot wait to start using it to take beach/jungle pictures!
