A New Camera

I have dream this for quite a long time. A digital camera for myself! All these while I kept thinking and considering what brand and model should I purchase. After some researches on the Internet and my own observation, finally I make up my mind to get a Canon IXUS 860IS.

For me, it is kind of expensive. It costs me RM999 plus a screen protector, just a thin layer of plastic that stick of the 3" LCD screen costs RM8 but after bargain RM6. However I like some of its features such as the large 3 inches LCD screen and 28mm wide lens which allows you to cover wider area when taking photo. Here I some of the key features:
  • 8.0 Megapixel.
  • Canon 3.8x optical zoom lens with Optical Image Stabilizer.
  • 28mm wide lens.
  • Huge 3.0 inch PureColor LCD screen.
  • Super fast DiG!C III Imaging Processor with ISO 1600.
  • Face Detect technology with Auto Focus, Auto Exposure and Red-eye correction.
Come along with the camera in the box:
  • Canon battery pack NB-5L 1.27V 1120mAh (Li-ion)
  • Battery charger CB-2LXE
  • 32MB SD memory card
  • Interface Cable IFC-400PCU to connect the camera to computer USB port
  • AV Cable AVC-DC300
  • Wrist Strap WS-DC2
  • Canon Digital Camera Solution Disk
  • User Guides
  • Warranty Card (1 year warranty)
Apart from these standard items come with the camera, Canon also given away some gifts upon purchasing, such as a Canon digital camera case and Canon Ximplify software (I still don't know what the software for).
As promotion, the shop itself also given away a 2GB Toshiba SD card and RM100 coupon for photo printing.
One thing I am not satisfy with the discount coupon is this term and condition:

"Satu kupon sahaja boleh digunakan untuk pencucian harga gambar lebih daripada RM25.00"

The sentence is a bit confusing, but I think I know what it means. Initially I thought I can print the photo for free worth RM100! Cheh!! Actually, I can only use one coupon of RM5 discount for every RM25 I spent in photo printing at the shop.

Here is the warranty cert and bill issued to me. I hope it's worth it.
Now I owned a digital camera. So I hope that I can have more quality photos for all of you!

  2. You can't go wrong with Canon Ixus series. I own Ixus 40, which I'm very
    satisfy with its performance till now.
