Powershot

I am being so fickle-minded over my intention of purchasing a digital camera now. Have recently sold my DSLR and now am looking for semi-pro/system compact camera. Loved the DSLR but couldn't stand the bulkiness and the weight. When travelling, terasa sangatlah tengkok ni menampung berat yang amat sangat. I always ended up keeping the DSLR in either the backpack or the sling bag that I had with me. As a result bila ada object or scenery yang cantik for me to capture, I would always miss it coz I would be taking a long time rummaging through the bag to take the DSLR out.

After that, been eyeing the Leica D-Lux 4. Have been going around town surveying, tinggal masa je nak grab it until...I saw this baby featured on youtube...Canon Powershot G11. Features memang banyak - wide angle, supports macro shooting, good in low-light etc. etc. those things you want a good camera to have lah..But what really made me teruja with this one is the fact that it's viewfinder can swivel :) Pic from Canon webbie


Bolehlah shoot gambar sendiri dengan senangnya..Price, it's almost 40% cheaper than Leica yang I konon2 nak tu..Hmm..this calls for another round of window shopping this weekend. Any of you readers have the same camera? How do you find it? Sharelah..Thanks!

dear...tk bulky jugak ke?

Jabberholic said...

Zarin : Hi dear. It's not bulky like DSLR. Can fit in your handbag. Cuma besar sikit daripada normal compact cameras ;)

Hi,
I was blog hopping and landed here :)
I'm using the older version - G10. So far, I'm satisfied with the image quality. So, much improvements must have been made for G11 then. But it's not as light as other compact cameras. Bukan slim yg boleh masuk dlm really small handbag. I guess because it's a bridge camera (between point & shoot and DSLR). I you're familiar with Lady Verde's blog, she got it quite recently.

Liyana : Thanks for swinging by. Have recently seen the camera in real life. Yupp, like you said, it's not that light. It's a semi-pro, a bridge between P&S and DSLR. Was told if someone wants a smaller version camera with most of the DSLR features, it's the one. The body is really tough rite? Told my hubby, pakai besi kereta kebal ke?
