Top 3 Things I love about Canon Ixus 80IS

Last May 2008, few weeks before my birthday, I decided to buy my first ever digital camera as a birthday gift to myself. I have always looked forward to replacing our family's Canon Prima BF 800 - it's just too old, boring and soooo outdated! So upon checking out a few digital cameras at SM, my eyes got captivated at this stylish, slim, silver 8 megapixel digicam - the Canon Ixus 80IS. It was Canon's newest offering at that time. It was priced at Php18,000 plus freebies. I thought, "Ok, you're way too pricey compared to my Nikon FM10 SLR, but I'll get you."

Days after I went back with my hard earned savings. But this time, the silver color is no longer available so I just contented myself with the available pink. I'm not much fan of pink colors but as I stared long at it, I actually began to love its candy pink touch. And immediately after I swiped my atm card, I found myself at the Folded and Hung Store getting my Summer freebie :)

Fast forward, this slim and sexy gadget has been my travel buddy for 3 years. Although sometimes I tend to get frustrated, I'll give my pink digital camera Canon Ixus 80IS an A grade. Especially when I use it during those quick snapshots. It's just too handy and friendly. It's not like those DSLRs where you have to think twice before using it during boat rides or too-close-to-the-beach moments.
