It was a hard afternoon 2 weeks ago when Bruce brought me my broken camera. I was as shocked as anyone when it actually made me cry. I am going to blame that on the pregnancy hormones.
You see, Bruce gave me that camera for Christmas when we found out that I was pregnant with Charlotte. It was small and cute, but still took pretty good pictures (my skills notwithstanding). I had planned to use that camera to document all of Charlotte's childhood, and the childhood of Babin (the one in my belly) too. Somehow, the LCD screen was crushed. And since this particular model didn't have a viewfinder, I was stuck.
I've been using Bruce's camera, but it isn't the same. It is his. I bought it for him last year to replace the first digital camera we had ever owned. I just don't enjoy using it as much.
And now we have the point of this post (beyond my whining about a silly camera). What kind of camera should I get to replace my broken one?
A very respected photographer friend suggested the Nikon D40. It is a reasonably priced entry level DSLR camera. And I kind of want to upgrade to a DSLR camera just so I can take my pictures to the next level (in theory at least).
I don't really know what my budget is yet. Bruce hasn't decided. And, I don't want to rush the decision in case he wants to surprise me for Mother's Day or our 11th wedding anniversary. But, please leave your suggestions so that he may start to figure out what, if anything, he wants to do about my broken camera.
No pressure Bruce! Just trying to help you make an informed decision. :)
