Got a digital camera... Is it? Really??

Yes... I have got a digital camera. The amazing thing is it's a gift :)


I have fascination for camera from long ago. I liked to shoot pictures by our family camera. That was not a digital one, you need film to take pictures. You know what?? That camera was lost from me. Once the camera was with me and I just got out of the car(the car was from a rent house) leaving the camera behind me in the car. The next day we contacted to the rent house but they told that they didn't find any camera inside the car. So I lost our family camera. From that time I was thinking that I would buy a good camera but I couldn't manage enough money to buy a good one yet. Last thursday I got a digital camera as a gift and it's a quite good one i think :)


My friend Gagan gave me this new camera. He is going to leave Dhaka on September 9. Before leaving Dhaka it was his gift to me while I did nt give him anything as a wedding gift :P I wanted to give something but somehow I did not. I don't disagree that I did many things in his wedding. Did he give me this camera for I had done many things in his wedding :-? As I did nt do anything for a requital I just hope it's not for the hardships I had done rahter it's a token of our very good friendship :)


I am giving a brief description of the camera here :

1. Model : Canon Power Shot S3 IS
2. 12x optical zoom lens with USM and UD lens element
3. Optical Image Stabilizer
4. 6.0-megapixel CCD
5. Larger size 2.0-inch vari-angle LCD
6. 30-frame-per-second (fps) VGA movies with stereo sound and Photo in Movie feature
7. DIGIC II, iSAPS, and Flexizone AF/AE for fast, precise results and 2.3 fps continuous shooting performance
8. 20 shooting modes and My Colors photo effects
9. High ISO Auto and ISO 800 for low light flexibility
10. Widescreen (16:9) recording



There is full manual control in this camera. If you want you can play with the art of photography by this one. You can control the shutter speed and aperture. The macro mode is also very good. Gagan said this one is just the previous thing of DSLR camera that means you will get many of the features of DSLR but adding extra lens. I think 12x optical zoom with image stabilization is more than enough for me :P No need to add extra lens :)


Take a look at it now

:) yea... I also hope that more pictures will come :)

Gagan said...

I cannot but disclose a very important fact that Eamon ignored. I DIDNOT provide the full cost of the camera!!

It's quite an expensive toy even for myself ! How can I afford to give someone else ;)

Eamon himself provided more than 50% of the cost!!! ( Hehe, quite an interesting way to present a gift hehe)

Anyways, I will take some credits that he owns a camera. If I had not push, he would probably never have had a camera!!

No Eamon, it was not as a payment of your service for my wedding, haha!! I had decided about this before we started my marriage process! But later I increased the budget for you :)

And there is no way I can reply to things that you have done for me! N Who says I will try ??? :D
After all, I had awarded him as my "best man"

eamon said...

Its true that I paid some of the money for that cam but the thing is that if Gagan did nt push me then I would nt have a thing like that :) May be it will take me years to buy a cam of that quality. So credits obviously goes to him.


And the money he spent for that is still amazing to me but what can I do when he is "mazed" and people are "amazed" by him :)

Eamon you are my best friend. I love you so much. I still feel very nostalgic about the good old days. The time we have passed together still are my best memories. please gift me a DSLR. ;)

eamon said...

hehe... maroof, it's nice to hear that I am your best friend ;) hahahaha...

The fact is that I still don't have the capability to buy a DSLR... so sorry buddy :( (:D :P)
