A great picture sells. I even notice myself when perusing through the handmade wares being drawn to the pictures that pop as opposed to the ones that flop.
Hence my need (or I should rather say want) for a new camera. My good ol point and shoot just does not cut the mustard. I have to take several photos just to get a half decent one and then try and fix it more in photoshop. My desire was then further strengthened when my brother inlaw lent me his Nokia d7000 for a couple of days when he was visiting from Japan. Oh my goodness, what a difference, what a joy, what a lot of money!!!
Here are a couple of snaps that I took. All I had to do was literally point, auto focus and shoot.
It was a very sad affair when I had to reluctantly return the camera, boo hoo.
The Nokia D7000 is certainly a great camera in more ways than one but at over a grand it is not really an option to get. Alas there are smaller models that are more within reach that will still take photos far better than the camera I currently own. The Nokia D5100 is the one that is on my wish list (or secretly hoping that it will be a combined christmas/birthday present as I am unfortunate to be born straight after christmas)
Then to go with this super duper camera I would most definently have to make myself a funky camera strap using the tutorial below
I have to say that I know little to none about the finer details of what a camera can do or really what makes one model better than the other. They say in the end its how much you want to spend determines which one you buy.
