What would life be like without gadgets?

Canon IXUS 220 HSI should be awarded some kind of prize for being an excellent spender, because I spent another 1699,- NOK today. I know, can you believe it? And what did I trade for such an amount of money? A compact camera, namely a Canon IXUS 220 HS, and I adore it! No, I know. I didn't need another camera, I do have my Canon EOS 450D that I use for a lot of my pictures, but it's honestly too damn big to bring along when I venture outside or go on smaller trips, and I'm one of those who often see things around me I'd like to photograph. Back in 2008 we bought another little Canon IXUS, the 80 IS, but I don't like it. At all. So now I have an adorable little black companion with me everywhere, and I hope we'll grow to become good friends! Ambitious as I am (!), I figured it could be handy to have a camera able record in full HD (1080p) should I ever feel the urge to record makeup tutorials for YouTube. Or something. And it was cute. And black. And matte! I love the matte finish, and it makes it so much better to grip. Adorable!

So there you have it. Now you know what I've been up to today. Apart from being slightly annoyed with the Norwegian Customs, who are holding my package of Ozotics Pro Multi Chromatics hostage in Oslo at the moment, I mean. I also spent last Thursday in Lier, visiting my sister and seeing my niece and her boyfriend, and my nephew again, before we drove down to Hjortneskaia on Friday to board the M/S Color Magic headed to Kiel and back, with parents and in-laws! We all had an awesome time together, and I hope we can do it again soon. I'm gonna fantasize about the roasted deer in blueberry gravy I had for dinner for a very long time!

  1. You are like The no. 1 Shopper of all my friends! I think it’s hilarious! My brother has that camera, it’s really good, and I’m picky when it comes to things like that. I just spent too much $ on a Wacom Cintiq! So excited though, I am sure you can understand my excitement being in the creative business yourself Smile

  2. Godt å se at du velger med vett: canon Wink Likte utrolig godt designet på dette kameraet, råstilig! Åå, så koselig. Sikkert fint å få samle mine og dine også Smile

    • Jeg er egentlig ikke så veldig opphengt i merker når det gjelder kamera, men mer det at de faktisk dekker behovet mitt. Da jeg kjøpte Canon EOS 450D kikket jeg også på Nikon, men valget falt på Canon på grunn av prisen på objektiver. Smile

      Turen var kjempekoselig, om man ser bort fra at både svigerfar, mamma og jeg fikk med oss et ganske ekkelt virus hjem igjen. Jeg har hatt feber siden mandag, og det er først nå i kveld jeg virker å være feberfri – slitsomt! Sykdom eller ikke, det er fantastisk deilig å få bekreftet at familiene våre går utmerket sammen. Grin

  3. Godt at familiene går godt sammen, det er viktig Smile Håper du føler deg enda bedre i dag! Wink

    For meg er det også behovet som er viktigst, men etter å ha brukt både Canon og Nikon syns jeg at Canon er mye bedre. Nikon er unødvendig vanskelige kamerar.

    • Formen er stigende, om ikke annet. Takk for omtanken! <3

      Jeg har ikke brukt Nikon noe særlig, men etter å ha eid Canon EOS 450D kan jeg ikke si at det frister til nyinnkjøp. Kameraet irriterer meg mer enn det gjør meg fornøyd, og det var overhodet ikke verdt 7000 (som i tillegg var kampanjepris da jeg kjøpte det). Frown
