Digital Camera Dilemma: Canon Powershot SX150 IS or SX500 IS, that is the question…

Since I bought the Canon PowerShot SX150, I’m getting to know it and exploring all of it’s options. I’m basically looking for much much more within a camera. I need the good lens, but can’t afford a DSLR at all due to the price. I already have the charger and battery, NB-6L, from a previous camera that got damaged and wouldn’t want to just donate it, because the PowerShot SX500 takes it. Now that one has a whopping zoom of 30x!! That’s up to par with my MiniDV camcorder.

Hmm, the price after tax will come to $400. That is a whopper. A DSLR comes to over $750 including lenses and all that. I’m just looking for a professional-grade digital camera for those seriously great moments I need to capture when the olympus x42 won’t do. Supermacro for example, the olympus is excellent for it. Same for nightshots. The canon needs to be able to beat that. I am impressed by the SX150’s 15 second shutter speed for low light and cool captures. Heck, with that shutter speed, you could easily take paranormal pictures!

I still have 29 days as of this post’s writing, to return the camera. Zellers is closing by March, so I wouldn’t be able to get it there at all. Walmart, or elsewhere, within a few weeks, I’ll be able to check the price to see how much I’ll need to save up. I checked the price at canon’s website and it’s $389.99, basically $390 if rounded. Big ticket, yes, but that is basically the only one that’ll take the battery pack I have. It’ll be a while before I get used to that thing. Such an amazingly powerful camera. I’m going to keep taking supermacro shots with both and then, finally decide which one is worth it. Olympus is 12MP. This one is 14MP. The one I’m looking for is 16MP. But will it really matter with the MP’s? I don’t care. I just need something that has an amazing lens.

Thanks for reading, hope I gave you some inspiration. 😀

During the time chirbit was down, i was forced to upload my recordings, limited to less than 5 minutes, to audioboo…

**UPDATE**
It’s back up. 🙂

So yeah, as of this post, chirbit is down. I don’t know how long it’s been down, but it’s bothersome to have to use another source to upload my recordings to. Worst part, it limits it to LESS than 5 minutes. Next time, I’ll use beiks to upload the recording to viddler so I never have to worry about it again. I love viddler’s audio capabilities. First it was video, now it’s audio, no length limit, just like chirbit.

What I liked about chirbit: text to speech conversion. YES, it is the BEST at it. It uses a voice codec that is so clear. I am hoping it goes back up so I can then use it more often. Anons used it to make those messages on video. It’s one hell of a handy thing to have. But now? I can’t use it. Because it’s down.

So… I’ll be uploading it to viddler and audioboo depending on length and not bother with the one I’m blogging about. I just wish they had better uptime and less downtime. The site owner(s) don’t know how many count on it. Social audio is very important! It should never be out of reach.

Thanks for taking the time to read this. If you came across it, then you aren’t alone.
