New toy – Canon Digital Ixus 850 IS

Wednesday, February 21. 2007

During the last years I shot quite a number of pictures. First I could use cameras from, two years ago, I got myself a DSLR camera to be able to get decent pictures while being abroad. I don’t regret spending so much money for a camera – it is fast and the picture quality is superb. There is only one little disadvantage with this camera- it’s the size: You can’t just put it in your back pocket.

But once you are used in operating a quite advanced camera you don’t want to give up the comforts. So I hesitated quite long before I bought a small digital camera. But then three weeks ago I borrowed the Ixus 800 had acquired. I immediately fell in love with this camera. It is fast and very handy. Sorting through the pictures at home I realized, that the picture quality was quit good. So I came into thinking… I didn’t have the chance to shoot photos at many occasions, because I was too lazy to carry the big DSLR cam. With a small cam I would never have that problem again. So my desire for a small cam grew.

Checking through cam prices, I realized, that the Ixus 800 IS, would cost around 300 EUR and the new Ixus 850 IS model (which is capable of a higher resolution) was available for around 360€. Luckily I noticed, that Amazon is selling stuff, which they get send back from people who don’t like it, for a lower price through their Resterampe-Shop. There I found a new Ixus 850 IS for less than 300 EUR. I couldn’t resist that offer and ordered the cam.

So now I will definitely be able to shoot more pictures ? But I guess I will have to do some restructuring at my image gallery..

A friend of mine drew my attention to a special offer by today. Visiting there electronics page you can order cheap notebooks at the moment. Have a close look at the screenshot on the right. I guess the offer won't be available for too long on, so I saved it for you. It is a Sony Mini-notebook - one I'd always dreamed of - for some 19 Euros! Unbelievable! (Currently technorati has 19 blogpostings tagged with "amazon" on this issue. Guess by noon the story will be through a lot of more blogs..)

Edit 1:30pm: Meanwhile Amazon has changed the price of the notebook, and the order mysteriously has disappeared out of my order box.

Edit 3:20pm: Got the following statement from Amazon:
