clown of the corn
corn clown.... it has taken almost five months but i've finally gotten all the photos off my phone. this clown statue was at the halloween corn maze, in which you can get seriously lost.
i'm going to buy a real camera. top choice would be an slr, a nikon d80 or nikon 300, but i'm not ready for that stuff yet and can't afford it anyway... right now a nice point and shoot will be a HUGE technical step up. zoe strauss took a lot of earlier photos with a konica minolta dimage s414, so if a 2003 4-megapixel point and shoot was good enough for her i think i'll be fine.
flickr has been an amazing camera research tool. you can see all the cameras used on flickr, look at the specs, read reviews, and look at all the pictures taken with whatever camera.
i'm definitely getting a canon. these are the ones that look best right now -
a. canon powershot sd1000 digital elph - 7.i megapixel, 3x optical zoom, 2.5 lcd, rechargeable - $179.00
b. canon powershot sd1100 digital elph (the update of the above camera, coming out in march) - 8 mp, 3x oz, 2.5 lcd, rechargeable, image stabilization - $249.00
c. canon powershot sd850 is - 8 mp, 4x oz, 2.5 lcd, rechargeable, image stabilization - $299.00
d. canon powershot sd870 is elph - 8 mp, 3.8 oz, 3x oz, rechargeable, image stabilization - $349.00
