A second chance

I love taking photographs, and over the years I have taken thousands and thousands of pictures.

I have a Canon 50D, a proper DSLR, but even so, it’s nice to have a small camera that can easily go into your bag.

Up until last year, I used a small Canon Ixus camera. It has gone with me everywhere, since 2002.  But last year I swapped it out, for a Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30, that gives me a bigger zoom range, than my old Ixus ever did.

I decided to get this, even as much as I loved my Ixus, so that I could have a decent zoom range without having to always drag my heavy DSLR with me.

As a backup, my faithful Ixus was put away in a drawer.

Yesterday though, my Ixus’s life changed slightly, when a friend from US, decided to take it with him, to the other side of the ocean, to keep as his second camera 😉

Farewell old friend – I wish you happiness, and I hope the two of you, share as many pleasurable moments as you and I did.

  1. I’m smiling … a Canon PowerShot (Canon’s marketing name for the Ixus in the US) is still my carry-anywhere camera. I took a shot for my blog with it tonight. They were/are great little light-and-shadow-boxes. You’ve made a generous gift to both your friends!


    1. Thank you, it’s good to hear I have a fellow camera friend 🙂 I have to admit, cameras are hard to part with. They represent a lifetime of experiences and memories, since they are such an integrated part of my life. Still… two to use, ought to be enough 😉
