After losing our old camera several month’s back, Hedda and I were finally able to purchase a new digital camera to replace it after some generous donations in the form of Christmas Gifts.
The camera we settled on is the Casio Exilim EX-S500, for several different reasons.
- It’s extremely small. We want the camera for candid snapshots with our friends, so portability is extremely important.
- It reviewed pretty well.
- It fit right into our price range.
- It was ORANGE!
So far, we’ve been very pleased with it. The battery life has been great so far - we’ve taken almost 100 pictures, and the on-board meter has yet to deplete to even the half-way point. The zoom is only 3x, but some trade-offs must be made to accomodate such a small form factor.
Thank you so much to those who helped us out! We love you so much!
