Vintage Picture-Taking

Since the beginning of high school, I’ve used the same white Sony Cybershot; yes, my camera and I took a brief break at the end of high school and beginning of college when I upgraded to a new (and lime green) model, but after growing sick of the new camera’s touch screen (and, okay, dropping it onto concrete and finding it no longer did things like turn on), I reverted to the white Cybershot. It’s taken my high school and college graduation pics, dozens of pictures of Parisian landmarks in May, hundreds of photos of the rest of Western Europe last summer, not to mention every project photo you’ve seen on 3S. While I’ve been through a lot with this camera, and it still works perfectly, it’s time to move on. After all, the technology behind digital cameras has improved vastly, and I’m no saint: I want a new, hot, trophy camera to show off when I go to Hawaii in a few months.

I’m not knowledgeable or rich enough to hunt down a traditional, top of the line camera with all those fancy settings and numbers and switches, nor are my pockets big enough to fit anything but a compact camera, so the pocket-sized, mega-zoom Canon SX230 HS it is. It comes in three colors, but blue is less available and the particular shade of pink Canon chose is unacceptable to me, so I’ll be going with basic black–it’s a classic, after all. While this particular point-and-shoot may not be as stylish as others (the Nikon 1 is the super-model of cameras, in my opinion), I don’t need it to be pretty, especially when I can admire the vintage camera illustrations below. Expect lots (and lots and lots) of photos with the new camera soon, but until then, enjoy some art supply inspired artwork!
