It’s not a topic easily discussed. Or even one that most people will broach eagerly. But the truth is, there is always somebody or something to be envious of.
For example, I started taking photos around the house with my lovely little digital camera, that i really do adore and love.
But then I upload the pictures and they’re not as beautiful as they could be, in my mind’s eye. Now, I know I could probably use some digital picture enhancer like photoshop or something like that to improve them. But that would require a desktop computer with at least one really big screen to do the job correctly. Unfortunately, I just don’t have those tools.
The other thing that could change it would be a new camera. I look at some photos that friends have on their blogs, and in their semi professional “i take pride in my photos” displays, and I want their cameras.
With the high megapixel count and the clarity of the shots and the rapid response from an SLR camera.
So I have started researching these new cameras and this new world of awesomeness that I think I would like to get into, at least on a personal and amateurish level. And I can honestly say that I really like the Canon Rebel xsi (Known as the EOS 450D outside the US). But it’s kinda uber expensive, at least for me right now.
So I was looking at it’s younger sibling, the Canon Rebel xs (EOS 400D I believe). And it’s just as cute! And it looks fairly user friendly. Bonus is that it’s about half of the ideal budget I wanted to put aside for a new camera. Thing is, I wonder can I add new lenses to the xs. Or do I want to just splurge myself and go for the bigger XSI and not worry about having to spend more money right away…
These are my thoughts, all inspired by the green eyed monster lurking inside my mind when I see such beautiful photos from S over at devourslowly.
So if I end up splurging on myself and buying an insanely expensive camera, it’ll be all her fault.
