Camera Woes

The camera I've used for 6 years is slowly dying. It no longer zooms in past the 4x zoom, and the lens retracting sounds so pathetic I wince when I hear it.


I love this thing :( It's just a Canon A540 that came out in 2006. It lets me zoom clearly and gives me awesome detailed pictures. Sure I need to take 20 to get some really good ones, but I do eventually get it.

Last summer I bought a Canon Elph SD1400 IS. The only good thing about this thing is it's pink. Okay and it has this neat "miniature" feature. But I no longer get detailed pictures. It doesn't matter how far I zoom and if I press the macro flower or not, it's just overflashed crap.



You can clearly see the sparkles in the liners, lower lashes nice and sharp

Then you get this crap

Unfocused lashes, too much light, blurry sparkles, Buttercupcake look freakin orange DAMMIT!
My skin tone in that top one is all wrong. It reminds me of an Andy Warhol painting.

So unless I figure this out, when my old camera finally craps out for good, I don't think I'll be posting anymore pictures. I really hate the way they turn out.

I'm probably just being too picky, but I think it really sucks when a 6 year old camera out-performs a newbie.

It's ballz I say.

My mom and brother own Rebels, maybe they can help me figure out the settings.


  1. I feel your pain. I have a 9 year old canon G3 that I adore to bits and it takes the best photos. I've tried friends newer cameras but still always go back to old faithful!

  2. Okay, I have a Sony Cybershot 7.2mp, can you believe it, in the age of HD i'm still using a 7.2mp, it's friqqin 5yrs old, the pic are great as long as I take them outside in the sunlight, so I do my look and run out side and take photos & swatches... but i'm doomed when it rains.... sigh!

  3. It looks good, even am not a yellow lover make up person looks nice, what do u use on the lips?

  4. @Gladys I hope I can still milk 3 more years out of mine then lol
    @Lily lol mines just a 6.0mp I remember when a 12mp came out and I was like "what for!?" but 6 seems so weak now hahaha
    @MariaAndrea I never know what to pair with eyeshadows. I think red would look nice but I always rub my lippies off so I pass on them usually.

  5. I love it like this! chicken-yellow and a sharp eyeliner! nicely done, you're in my book now! ;)

  6. ARGH, cameras. I hate how things don't last anymore. I always have stuff that works well and then when they go to sh*t you end up looking forever for something that is just as good. BALLS!
