Christmas came early

recent splurge

I have a bit of a confession to make… I bought myself a little something for Christmas this year. And I did it a month before Christmas, because Christmas can’t come soon enough, eh?

No doubt there are folk out there who really love their cameras, just like me. But sometimes carrying around an big slr, an old film camera with spare film, or whatever, is a bit of a hassle. So after a long debate with myself mostly, I decided to just go for it. The little compact camera that fits in my pocket. The Canon S120 has been around for quite some time now, but is still celebrated for its capacities. It’s small and has a lot to offer. That was kind of what I was looking for. Also, a not-too-steep (aka cheap) price-tag had to be on it too. And here it is.

I already took it with me this past weekend and I am very chuffed so far. Of course it’s not dslr quality, nor would it probably really compare to a mirrorless camera… but it’s just a lovely thing to carry around and not have any excuses not to take a picture. Sure, I have a phone with a camera… but it’s no fun. I want something a little more manual and sturdy. Also, I don’t want to see and read all those e-mails and messages when I want to take a picture.

I know you guys don’t need any convincing… I just wanted to explain myself – maybe mainly for future reference when I kick myself if I can’t pay the rent or something, hehe!
