New Camera, Scary Flashes

Okay... So after over a year of saving and waiting, my human Lizzy finally got a new camera... That's a good thing for her, right? But for me?... Not so good. I can barely even see the keyboard because those flashes are so blinding! But nevertheless, I suppose I will have to show you the pictures...

This is the first photo ever taken with the new camera. I am honored that the first photo taken was of me, but I still wasn't ready for the flash.

My human Lizzy decided to take some photos of Hazel. I was hoping to escape the flashes then, but Lizzy made me pose with Hazel as well... She threatened that if I didn't pose for her camera with the hamster, then she wouldn't give me her pizza for supper. What could I do?

In case you are all wondering, the new camera is a Canon EOS Rebel XS. Now someone please come rescue me from the deadly flashes.

Flashes are hard to handle but you can always have your pic taken more outside. :)

The new camera sounds great Lizzy!

We are so glad Mom got a new camera. Mom has an EOS XTi. She just loves it. She has had it for a couple of years and still doesn't know all the settings..

hi Sparky, sorry about the new camera. you know that Lizzy is gonna want to take more pictures of you now than she ever did before. maybe you can close your eyes when she flashes. hee hee! that won't make a very good picture, but at least you won't get so much flashes in your eyes.


Clover said...

Hi Sparky!
Looks like the new camera is working well! But of course it has some good subjects.
How good of you to pose with Hazel!
Love Clover xo

Dozer and Coop said...

Gees Sparky, I think you can call the ASPCA or someone because you are going end up with a white cane if this continues. We'll go find you some sunglasses and send them your way.

Love, Dozer, Dots and Cooper

Those are great photos!! I'm sure Lizzy will put that camera to good use. And of course, the first picture needs to be of you, Sparky!!

I love the close-up of you and Hazel. That's a really sweet picture.

You look very photogenic. I hate that flash stuff. Doesn't look like it bothers Hazel.


Thor said...

Hey Sparky!

You are so cute! You get the pizza?? I hope so.

Love and licks

A new camera? How nice for Lizzy! But that's bad news for you though, Sparky. But then again, your picture look really great with the new camera.

Girl Girl Hamster said...

Aw.. the pictures of you with Hazel are so sweet. ;)
Maybe Lizzy can get you some sunglasses to block out the flashes?

What cute pictures of you guys! The Mum here says she likes that kind of camera too! She has an Olympus e300 and takes tons of pictures of us!

Princess Eva and Brice said...

Great pictures with the new camera. But the pictures were also great with the old one. It must be that you are such a star.

Fred said...

Very cool! (I know the flashes are scary, though.) You and Hazel seem to be great pals!

Ruby Bleu said... good you posed w/ Hazel! I don't think I could ever do that!!!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Arabella said...


Just tell your mom not to use the flash so much! Then she can take all the beautiful pictures of you she wants!

Lady Kaos said...

You got the pizza right?

Toffee said...

What was your old camera...cause your pictures were pretty awesome with that one too!

My mom has a Canon EOS Rebel...she must have been really good cause Santa brought is the XTi though. She is holding out for a stabilization zoom lens but I am not really sure that she has been good enough this year.

she started a photo a day blog at:

Lenny said...

Hey Sparky! My dad has a camera like that too. I am so sorry for you. The trick is to turn your head at the last second and not look at the camera, because that ruins the shot! :)

Your friend, Lenny

P.S. Sorry I haven't been around in a while! My people have been hogging the computer!
