I Can't Even Describe How Much I Love my New Camera!

I am literally, obsessed with picture taking now! My mom got me a new camera for Christmas (Yes, I was lucky enough to get it early :) ) and I absolutely love it!

It's the Canon PowerShot SX40 HS:
My old Camera, was also a PowerShot (And I loved it) but I wanted something that could do a little more. The PowerShot SX40 HS takes amazing pictures (Hopefully you will all notice that my posts have lots of pictures now :) ) and the zoom is so amazing!

The picture at the top of my post (with the moon) was taken with my new camera. When I first took the picture, I was literally breathless. I had no idea you could take a picture with a camera, and actually see the craters of the moon. That has to be one of the coolest things I have ever seen, in my entire life. I have been going on, and on, to everyone I know, about how amazing the zoom is on this thing!

I can't wait until New Years, and I can't wait for out trip - I am going to get some amazing pictures! :D

I have been so camera happy lately. I got the camera 2 or 3 days ago, and I've literally, already taken over 300 pictures! I am obsessed with this camera. If you are looking for a great camera, with an amazing zoom, I highly, highly recommend checking out the Canon PowerShot SX40 HS!

Here are some more amazing pictures I've taken since getting it :) :

And that's it for now :)

I'm sure I will have a lot more pictures soon :D. I know I haven't had pictures of the babies in a while; They have gotten SO BIG - And I promise; I will have some soon :)



  1. Woohoo ... I am totally with you, girl!
    I love photography and also got an early birthday/Christmas gift from my Mom this year - a Nikon D3100! I could seriously play with my new "baby" all day long :-D !!

  2. wow,beautiful pictures! your moon pictures are amazing.i'm so happy that you got such a cool camera..Happy December :)

  3. Wow it does take nice pictures! I need a better camera so I can take better pics for reviews. The camera I have is okay but not great. I need to learn how to use the settings to my advantage.

  4. Amanda I had to say how much I enjoyed reading some of your posts, I like your honesty and your sense of humor...Kisses and good luck with your blog...

  5. Those are awesome - I want that camera!!! Wow. I love the one with the pigeon and the squirrel!

  6. Wow looks like you got some good shots.

  7. Awesome pictures! I also have a Canon. A T2i and I'm still learning the ropes. I love it though, do you have any tips?

  8. Great pictures! Don't you just love new cameras??! Keep up the beautiful pictures!

  9. I got a new camera too, Amanda and I have not taken nearly this great of pictures yet. A good camera is awesome, but you also have the "eye" for taking good pictures it seems. That's the artist in you I guess! WOW, the moon pictures ARE amazing. I have never tried that!
