Canon Camera

Canon SX30IS

Guess what I got this week? A new camera! I got the Canon SX30IS.  My hubby had been wanting to get a nice camera to take pictures of the kids with, and the Canon camera is the one we decided on.  Our old one was a cheap one that was hard to focus and couldn't take action shots.  With kids you need to be able to take fast moving pictures sometimes.

Poor kid, needs a haircut!  Looks like a bunch of cows ganged up and licked his head, lol!

These are a few pictures my husband and I took with it.

Kid Rock and Pretty Ugly

We have a lot to learn since this one has a lot of settings and  modes.  So, hopefully with time we can take better pics!

I can already tell a difference in the clarity of the images with the Canon camera vs. our old one.

Anyone have any tips for taking good pics with a fancy camera?

I have an older Canon Rebel XTI. You are going to love your new camera. I have different lenses I use and love them. I know how you feel. You will learn just start turning and taking pics and see what you get. I love the chickens. By the way, do you raise chickens? That is something I have always wanted to do. How much trouble is it?

Blessings!
