My birthday's approaching and I'm asking for a new camera. I've only had one digital camera for the past 6 years (got it on my 10th birthday ) which was a 5mp Canon that I managed to take some fantastic photos with over the years. However it's recently decided to give up on me and die
I was originally looking into getting an entry-level DSLR, but after looking into my options, I realised I would probably get frustrated with having to lug the various lenses around with me just to get good photos.
So now I'm looking into the superzoom range.
My current pick is probably the Canon Powershot SX1 IS.
Has anyone got one of these babies? From the reviews I've read, it seems pretty fantastic for someone like me who wants something that takes better photos than the regular point & shoot.
I'm still giving a couple of the entry level DSLR's a look over before I rule anything out, so any advice would be very welcome!
I'm really just looking for something reasonably lightweight (not talking tiny like the credit card sized p&s cameras you can get), that I can travel with but takes good quality photos and video. I have no issue with the body size of the smaller SLR's but once you add on the lenses, it really does get quite bulky.
I'll also be taking it on my trip to California, which comes 2 days after my birthday, so keep in mind I'll be taking a lot of Disney shots with it
Thanks in advance for any advice!!
