Yesterday at the party I used the chance to experiment with my camera a little bit. I have Canon PowerShot A70 which is a good beginner to advanced amateur camera. You can point and click or you can adjust everything yourself, and you can use different lenses. I'm still in the stage of discovering what all the automatic settings do.

The first image was taken using Auto Mode (fully automatic).

The second was taken with Fast Shutter Mode.

The third was taken with Slow Shutter Mode.

And the last one was taken with Portrait Mode just for the heck of it.

As you can see Portrait Mode used flash when the other ones didn't.

So far I have learned about this camera, that:

  1. when taking pictures outside, always use Auto Mode first — Landscape Mode distorts colors;
  2. I must pay attention to flash settings;
  3. Macro Mode is awesome for photographing details;
  4. there is a lot more to learn.

I wanted this camera for adaptability and for ability to take pictures of small things in museums. So far I'm very happy with it, altough I haven't tested it in a museum with low light conditions yet. It probably will be much bettern than my old camera was.
