Well, it looks like I’m going to be picking up a new camera this weekend. I’ve been using an Olympus Stylus 300 for the past few years, and it has served me well, but its time for an upgrade. My Uncle asked me to photograph his wedding in April, and I don’t think a 3.2 mp camera is going to cut it. Besides, I’m always looking for a reason to buy a new toy. I was thinking about getting a Nikon D70s, but at a price tag of around $1000 plus another $800 for a zoom lens, and another $200 for a flash, I just cant see myself spending that kind of money for a camera.
So I started looking for a camera that was cheaper, but still had some of the features that I wanted like: a good zoom, higher mp, and a good macro. Looks like the lucky winner is the Canon S2 IS with a 12x optical zoom, 5mp, and a 0cm super macro. I will be picking it up this weekend, so that my parents can use my Oly for a trip they are going to take, and it will also give me time to see if it will be able meet my needs for the wedding.
