Yeah! Finally Got a New Digital Camera!
Well, I finally bit the bullet and bought a new digital camera. Some of you guys may have noticed in some of my posts a tacky comment mentioning how my ex-girlfriend kept my other camera. I finally decided it was worth a couple of hundred bucks to never have to talk to that psycho again.
I ended up getting a Canon SD550 :
7.1 megapixel CCD
2.5-inch color wide viewing angle TFT monitor
37-111mm (equiv.) F2.8 - 4.9, 3x optical zoom
640 x 480 movies at 30fps
Fast frame rate movies (320x240 pixels @ 60fps)
I wanted something sort of good but not too good so that I wouldn't care if I lost it in the lake. The main reason I got the SD550 is because they make this waterproof housing for it:
This means I'll actually be able to put relevant pics in my posts again. Also, I'll now be putting up riding pics and videos.
In the meantime... here's a video of me last weekend using my friends camera in a similar waterproof case. It's a jump off of a 65 foot cliff, camera in hand (1st person perspective). No worries... just a few more bruised ribs. Sorry it's on youtube... they cut down the quality. The original video is MUCH better.

They make a case for that one as well:
You should get it. With the image stablization, think of the options. You could mount it to your ski and get some really sweet videos. I'd be willing to edit them for you. I just got a copy of Sony Vegas 6, I've been having a blast making all kinds of crazy videos.

It is the one with stabilization.So far it has been awesome. The picture quality is excellent.
