To many of us, we have made our digital cameras our constant companion wherever we go. They have become like our cell phones; we are inseparable!
I was probably one of the last few that held on to the conventional film camera for the longest time. I thought, since my Olympus film camera was still working fine, I didn’t want to get my feet wet into the digital bandwagon. I must admit, though, that sharing and sending photos was not that easy, as I had to scan the photos first. Apart from that, I was starting to feel out of place whenever we were on vacation and we would use our trusty, old film camera while other tourists around us were snapping away with their sleek digital cams. It was not till the new year in 2007 that I finally yielded and gave in and got myself my first ever digital camera.
Now, I love the ease of sharing and posting these photos. Printing them though is another story, and I’m not happy with it as I now have three years worth of travel and day to day photos that are just stored on my laptop and the memory cards. Yes, I don’t recycle memory cards, I store and label them. I feel more secure that way knowing that the memory cards are like hard copies of my photographs (am I right on this one????). I just keep buying memory cards whenever I run out of space.
I’m not into digital scrapping, I do the good, old traditional paper scrapping. I’m really delayed on this one, as I’m currently doing photos in 2005. I know, I’m really bad but there is simply not enough time.
I now have the urge to get a DSLR camera. Not that I’m aiming to be a pro in photography, but I just love photographs taken using a DSLR. I currently own a Canon SD 850 IS. While I like the photos I come up with, with the little compact camera, I’m mesmerized at the kind of picture that a DSLR camera produces. I heard that the brand Canon makes great point and shoot cameras, while the brand: Nikon is known for SLR or professional cameras. Is this accurate?
I’m dreaming of the Nikon D3S.
