…maybe Avril will be right!! (Honestly, I’m not choosing these things due to celebrity endorsements! It just keeps working out that way.)

So I took back that lame-o Nikon (toooo bad because it was super cute!!) and am now the proud owner of a Canon PowerShot SD1200 IS Digital Elph. Holy, that’s a mouthful! I was going for the 1100, but they had this 1200 on for the same price as the Nikon I was returning so I went for it. I knew I liked it better the minute I took it out of the box. I don’t know why…I could just tell. First…the battery charger is way cool! It’s just a box that plugs into the wall…no stupid cord or anything. Second, the camera just feels sturdier (and therefore better??). And third, the manual is about 1/3 the size of the Nikon one…hello, user friendly! Once I got it powered up I could take a decent picture right away…no fiddling with stupid settings.

The proof will come over the next couple of days, but I’m pretty sure this was the right choice.

If not, I have another 14 days to return it. haha.

I will say that I am somewhat unimpressed with their wasteful packaging though. It came in this huge 12×12 cube box…but inside it was just this little tiny box holding the camera and then a ton of wasted space. Not cool, Canon. Not cool.

Oh, and I got the pretty blue one because the pink just screamed “tween” and it was bad enough that I was buying a camera with Avril Lavigne on the box. 🙂
