Nikon D3200

Photography

My old Canon PowerShot S3 has been faithfully serving about +11000 pictures for me, but the last year I noticed more and more noise on my pictures. Probably a sign that the CCD chip was wearing out. I really enjoyed the 12x optical Zeiss lens, but the 6 megapixel was really in need for an upgrade.

So I decided to look to the other side, and shop for a Nikon camera. Enter the D3200. I'm by no means a professional photographer, but I allways wanted to try out a DSLR camera. The thing came with a modest 18-55mm lens, which felt a bit shortcoming after my 6-72mm lens on the Canon. A new 55-300mm tele fixes that nicely, but boy, portability seems not an issue with those kind of cameras. Feels like I'm walking around with a mini bazooka or what !

Canon Powershot S3

Photography

My old camera, a Canon Powershot A10, is now more than 5 years old. Time for an update. This 1.3 megapixel camera served pretty well, so I decided to look for a new Canon camera (never change a winning team). I first thought about getting me the Powershot A710, but after some reviews, I decided I wanted a camera with some more zooming power. Enter the Powershot S3, a 12x zoom camera with 6 megapixels. Some nice features are color enhancements; have a look at this example.
Boy, I though there would be a threshold about the number of pixels cameras would support, but the race isn't finished yet : I see cameras featuring 10 megapixels. How on earth do they keep the noise out of these ?
