Whaddya Think?

As I’ve mentioned, I am about to buy a new camera, so you, dear blog reader, can have a more visual account of life in Catanzaro (well, that, and I want a good camera for my honeymoon).

I think I have selected one, but there aren’t many reviews on the Internet for this baby, so I thought I’d ask you guys.

It is the Sony DSC-W55. This is what “they” have to say about it.

“The slim, compact DSC-W55 model will sport 7.2-megapixel imagers and precision Carl Zeiss® Vario-Tessar lenses. It combines traditional, eye-level viewfinders with large LCD screens for easy framing and viewing of photos. The W55 camera will make a splash in Caribbean blue, pale pink, elegant black and sleek silver with a 2.5-inch LCD screen wrapped in a metal body.”

I, of course, want the cute pink model (that, by the way, takes 3 times longer to deliver). On the other hand, I am not that patient of a person, so, we will see if “cute” wins over “timeliness”.

So, tell me – WHADDYA THINK?

    What I really think is you should buy one that no one wants to steal. Maybe the pink one would work!

    Yes, yes, get one! Though maybe you should listen to Antonino. My son has a Canon and it is really pretty nice. Of course, I don’t own a camera. I just encourage all my friends to get one. That way I get pictures taken of me. When you own the camera you take the pictures, so the only pictures you have of yourself are those goofy ones at arms length.

    The pink one is cute! I wanted to buy a pink mp3 player just because it was pink but of course it was 3 times as expensive. Can’t wait till you have a camera to take wonderful pictures to post!! Good luck choosing.

    I like the pink one because it’s unique and yells “Girl!” Either way it’s a good camera and you’ll fun taking pictures with it.

    I like the pink too….although I must say I have a canon and I really enjoy it, easy to use and takes great pics!! I am sure whatever you choose it will be fun to use and I can’t wait to see all the pics!
    Have a great day!!

    Buona Pasqua! Geseënde Paasfees!
    I’m all about pink. Pink, pink, definitely pink!
    I have heard the Carl Zeiss lens is really good. Make sure you get something with a decent zoom, as well. Harder to find in the compact cams but I think you will find there are times when you want to get in closer.
    Pink is also fashionable for men. I’m making this up but this is what you tell Peppe, tee hee.

    Hi! Greetings from West Coast Canada! 🙂 I just came across your site and I’ll be sure to come back to read more of your experiences, and see more pictures! 🙂 You are shopping for a camera? I just went through the process myself, looking for something more compact than my older camera, but I also wanted a bunch of options to play with. I finally decided on Canon SD600 – it looks very similar to the Sony you’re considering. Good luck on your buy!

    When I bought my new camera last year, I used http://www.dpreview.com/ to help me decide. I LOVE the site, they compare everything possible to compare. (There’s pages of sample pics with each camera too, so that you can see how the colors balance and whatnot).
    Good luck!
