I wanted to share something with you! I’m about to embark on the purchase of a new digi cam in April. I’ve been using my trusty Kodak and Sony for ages and I thought I needed something with a bit more meat. After carefully consulting with my digital camera guru, Vanessa, I decided to go with a Canon. She had recommend two solid models and after a bit of thought I decided to wait a little while and go with the Canon Powershot SD1100 which is releasing in April. I seriously don’t need another digital camera as I have plenty in the “digital graveyard” in my closet where all old technology goes to rest (mice, keyboards, cameras, printers, my commadore 64, my Apple Lisa, etc…etc..). It appears, like the geek I am, that I develop emotional attachments to hardware and have a hard time throwing it away!
This particular model of the Canon looks very good. This is actually more a purchase for you guys then for me. I wanted something that would take high quality images of cosmetics, good bright photos of swatches, and close up shots. My old camera does ok with these things but I could definately use an upgrade! I normally avoid swatching because my camera takes such crummy shots and the colors appear wrong so hopefully the Canon will solve this problem and we’ll end up with some good true to color swatch pictures.
Thought I’d share and tell you to be on the look out for better pictures coming to a blog near you very soon! I think this will be extremely beneficial when your unable to purchase Japanese cosmetics at retail. The jacked up prices don’t give you an option to make a mistake with color if you know what I mean. So if you end up shelling out cash for Japanese Collections you’ll at least have the tools you need (my swatches and photos) to make proper color selections when purchasing!
Most of you know that a majority of my Japanese cosmetics are purchased at retail cost. I have a few friends that live in Japan and they get me what I need and I do the same for them. But when you’re purchasing online prices have a tendency to rise from $5-$10 USD or more!
A few other changes are also coming your way shortly….
Good changes I hope.
A new adventure awaits readers of Musings of a Muse some of which I think might be exciting!
I’m working on my own forum very soon so you’ll have a place to chat to fellow readers, swap cosmetics, chat about brands, etc…..
There are many, many makeup forums around but I thought Musings of a Muse deserved it’s own forum! So it shall be very soon! I’ve wanted to do this for a long time but I just haven’t had the time but know it’s in the works!
After much thought and consideration I’ve decided to start podcasting some of my posts. This should be live very soon depending on how much time I have to do it. Now you’ll not only have the opportunity to read my posts but you’ll also be able to listen to me babble about a collection, share my thoughts and opinions, and just do my normal giggle ummmm routine! Brace yourself while I try to remove the giggles and the “ummm’s” from my vocabulary!
I’ve wanted to do this for a while and I thought it would be a fun and unique way to make my posts even more interesting!
I think that’s about it for now! I hope you’ll find all these new additions as exciting as I do!
Thanks to my old and new readers because this can’t be possible without each of you!
Update: Camera is on the way! Amazon.com had listed it’s release April 15 but thanks to Taryn for showing the Muse it was available on Best Buy! So we’ll now have quality images soon! I hope it works well in low light situations and such! We shall see!
Cheers Taryn! Thanks for helping a Muse out 😉
