The Indiana Genealogical Society has a surplus digital camera that it would like to give to an Indiana county genealogical society.
This is a former project camera that IGS no longer uses.
The unit is a Canon PowerShot SX1is 10 megapixel camera 20x optical zoom model with an 8GB SDHC card. It has both a visual and a digital viewfinder. It uses 4 AA batteries, either standard or rechargeable.Several of these cameras are listed on eBay in the $150-200 range.
This one is available to you at no charge. If your society can use this camera for genealogy, email a request to IGS Corresponding Secretary Ron Darrah at firstname.lastname@example.org by February 12.
If more than one society requests the camera, we will draw names out of a bowl to determine the winner. IGS will pay for shipping. Good luck to your society!
UPDATE: the camera has been claimed. Keep watching the IGS blog and the IGS Facebook page for other opportunities.
