I've got trouble...


This is the one I have my eye on... the Canon Digital XTI

My camera croaked tonight. Now it's taking pictures that the bottom 2/3 of each is black, almost like my hand is over the lense. Tried numerous lenses, same deal. I haven't dropped it, or anything. I have had it quite awhile, and it's traveled the world. I guess it is tired.

Did I mention I have a wedding to take pics at the beginning of October? Not great timing, but I guess better timing than during the wedding!!!

Now I have to talk DH into a new camera. Not just ANY camera... another Canon Digital Rebel. I wouldn't mind an upgrade while I'm at it, this one is was only a 6.3 mp. See? That's how long I've had it, that was the latest model then. Look how many years I used it, and how many thousands of pictures I took. Chances are good DH won't understand why I must spend that kind of money on a camera. He would understand if it were a power tool, though... ;)

I LOVE taking pictures. LOVE IT. I've captured my family's life on film (or cd) and that's worth something, isn't it? Help me out girls... Tell my DH why I need a good camera?

It's not possible for you to be without a camera! We wouldn't get to see all those candid shots of your lives! Not to mention...how do you shoot a wedding without a camera???????

I am sorry to hear about your faithful old friend.... but hubby is just going to have to bite the bullet and understand that Mama NEEDS this new camera!

I dropped my digital camera at the library one day and broke it. I was crushed, as I love taking pics too. When we shopped for another one, I asked them to show me a camera I can drop and not break. That's how I got my Olympus. I would love the camera you're getting. One day!! LOL!!

tell him Ihave the 20D and you cannot be out done. True story!

Nancy said...

A camera is used to tell your children about their life story. You should be able to get something you truly love to get the best possible shots.
When my camera broke, I was out the next day replacing it with an upgrade.

Now...if only this one would break so I could upgrade....ummm!

Oh husband..she needs the camera! I use my good camera (Nikon D80) more than any other household equipment (including the stove and washing machine;)

Pictures of your beautiful family are priceless.
