Product Push: Canon PowerShot

I am not a professional photographer, so I need a good camera that helps me create pretty images as I document my life. I carry my camera everywhere, so a bulky SLR is out of the question, but a lot of point and shoots just don't deliver on quality. Luckily, this dilemma ended on my birthday. My amazing family (and best friend Julia) bought me the Canon PowerShot SD 4500 IS, and it is amazing. Small enough to carry in my purse, this camera has a 10x zoom that takes sharp pictures. I am loving this camera because of its functionality and quality, something that don't always go hand in hand.

Here are a few image I recently shot with my Canon.

Depth and Focus

Vivid Color


  1. I have exactly the same qualifications for a camera -- I MUST be able to tote it everywhere!

  2. I have Canon PowerShot too and love it!

  3. Okay so looking at these pictures helps me to see the difference between a mediocre camera and an amazing camera. Your pictures look spectacular! And the chocolate brown color of the camera in the pic is quite beautiful too, huh?

  4. Beautiful....your pictures are always great they are going to be even better....keep the great ones coming......:-))

  5. I have a very similar camera and I love it too! It's so fun to play around with the different settings. I would love a really fancy, big camera, but this works great for what I use it for.

    Awesome photos!!

    Have a great Thanksgiving!


  6. WOW...just amazing! That 2nd photo just takes my BREATH away, what a great camera.


  7. I have to get a new point and click and will definitely check this one out.

  10. Marcie, this is exactly the post I needed right now. Gabe keeps telling me I need a new camera and I've been dragging my feet, mostly because I don't know what to get! I agree that an SLR is out of the question for me because I take the camera everywhere. Thanks for the info on this one, your pictures look amazing!


  11. Great pictures, that looks like a neat camera! Is that mac n cheese in the first pic? :) Yum! I'm behind on your blog, heading off to read all your awesome posts. Happy Thanksgiving Marcie! xo

  12. Marcie you're camera is awesome because those pictures are easily as good as the ones those fancy ones take (that who on earth can figure out how to use?? okay lots of people from blogland, just not me. haha!!)

    I love the way it captured depth and focus in the middle picture. Outstanding!

    ps-Happy Thanksgiving if I don't make it back here :)

  13. those photos are gorgeous and i love my canon except i need to upgrade...i have the sd 750:) enjoy!

    Happy Thanksgiving, sweetie xoxo

  15. wow, looooooove the power shot camera :))))
