I decided to purchase a new point and shoot camera for our trip to Disney World in October. I have my Canon Rebel T2i but I didn’t really want to lug it around the parks and leave it alone in our stroller (yes, I know many people DO do this, and I did it in Tampa at Busch Gardens, but I wasn’t comfortable doing so… especially after I saw a woman get off a ride and her stroller was totally GONZO!).
I originally purchased a Nikon L810, which actually had great reviews. It was originally $279.99, but I found it on sale for $200 with free shipping. It came in, I was happy with the look of it, but then I started taking pictures… and I hated it. It was SLOW taking pictures. I changed it to continous shooting and then things got even worse – it would snap pictures, but they were blurry and the lighting was funky. Needless to say it went back to the store.
After a little more research and a trip to Best Buy to actually test some options hands-on, I decided on the Canon Powershot SX260 HS which retails for $349.99. I found it on sale for $289.00 at Amazon and purchased it in a fun shade of green. After a few test shots I was happy with it and I love that it has manual mode options and lots of fun features like GPS and facial recognition.
Now I needed a camera case! I decided to go ahead and make my own. This will be my everyday snapshot camera and I didn’t need anything special, just something to keep it safe when it is tucked inside my purse. I used a fat quarter, some batting and velcro to create this little pouch:
Just what I needed!
