My camera

A number of readers have inquired what camera I use to take the photos I post of Anya. It’s a Canon PowerShot S50. Unfortunately, it may have been discontinued (though you may be able to buy one here) but I think there are newer models that are similar. Here are some of its fine attributes, courtesy of

-5.0 megapixels
-3x optical zoom/4.1x digital zoom
-auto andmanual focus, program and manual exposure
-JPEG and RAW file formats
-ISO range 50-400
-Lithium-Ion battery
-movie mode withsound (this part is pretty cool)
-I’ll add: for the size, it’s kind of heavy (it’s metal not plastic) but considering the quality of photos it takes, it’s not bad, and it has a pretty good lens

My husband has a Nikon D70 which is responsible for the even better photos you may see from time to time.
