I caved and went with Robin’s recommendation at Cathay Photo, where I’ve now bought my fourth camera from. I was going to get the exact same one as I had misplaced but for another $50 more, the Canon IXUS 80IS had the improvements to the only 2 complaints I had with the Canon IXUS 70. It came in a bunch of different colours too but I stuck to sliver, everything else made it look like I was carrying a toy camera 😛
The look of the camera isn’t quite as sleek but the images are just as good as. So I can be declared happy again and in time to catch the sakuras blooming in Tokyo too 🙂 I cannot wait!!! Meanwhile, here’s a couple of random shots I’ve taken with my new toy.
The view when I look up from my desk. Yes, that is the map of Singapore.
On the way home and waiting in traffic.
After 4 years, they’re still trying to complete the MRT station in front of my flat … …
The next morning and I can officially say this is a little nifty camera too 🙂
