Mr Chiots and I are videographers by trade (check out some of what we do at 2nd Mile Productions). We recently shot a promotional video for some photographer friends of ours (Linczak Photography). Instead of paying us they gave us one of their old cameras and a lens. So we traded up, literally. Now my little Sony Cybershot will be in semi-retirement. (here’s the final video)
I’m sure it will still be traveling around the gardens in my back pocket and in my purse whenever I’m out and about (especially at farmer’s markets), but I’ll be using the new camera for some of my photos (those photos yesterday of the pets were some of the first ones with the new camera, more to come later this week).
If any of you are looking for a great little point and shoot I would highly recommend the Sony Cybershot 7.2MP Digital Camera with 4x Optical Zoomat $129.99 you can’t go wrong. As you can see by the images on my blog, it does a great job, especially with the macro lens. I LOVE it!
Now, on to the new camera (well new to us), it’s a Cannon 20D and we got a 50mm lens as well. I don’t know much about it yet, I’m sure in a few months I will. I can’t wait to see what my flowers look like through this lens (and perhaps a few others I may have by the time they’re up and blooming).
So what kind of camera do you use for your photos? Have you ever bartered for something?
