Cameras, Part 3

Somewhere along the way we purchased a pocket sized camera with auto focus and power zoom.  This was very convenient for travel, handled the focus, and made framing/composing the shot easy (via the zoom lens).

In 2004 we joined the digital camera revolution.  We got a largish pocket sized 4MP Canon S45.

This little camera was a marvel!  Digital film was cheap and this took great pictures.  And we could record movies with it.

We used this camera during our trip to Syria in 2005.

In 2006 we upgraded our SLR to a DSLR, staying with the Pentax brand so we could use our existing zoom lenses.  It was a 6MP K100D.

This camera could do everything our film SLR could do and more, but with digital film.  And it has optical image stabilization, to reduce the effects of camera shake.

Along the way we upgraded our pocket digital camera as well.

We still use this one when we go backpacking.

Seems like we have all the bases covered.  But it is time to update our DSLR so I'm in search of the Holy Grail of cameras.  To be continued . . .
