Click, Crack Oops

Anyone following along with Project 365 will know there was a slight accident. I cracked the screen of my trusty Canon A590IS (note to self: Don’t use coat as a pillow on a train when the camera is in the pocket). The camera still takes photos actually, but I’m basically restricted to auto as I can’t change any settings! So, time for a new camera…

After barely any research at all I ended up with the Canon SX130 IS (budget doesn’t run to DSLR yet, and it would be a bit bulky to constantly carry around anyway). Quite happy with it over the few days I’ve had it—couple of first impressions: It’s bulkier, probably on the limit of size which can be carried around so much; no viewfinder (which I didn’t realise until I got hold of it)! Seems strange to have to look at the screen to take a shot. At least the flip up flash means its not constantly trying to fire!

Anyway, that’s what’s taking the majority of the photos now!
