Turo & I had been wanting to buy a digital camera for the last 3 years but always decide that it’s not a priority, given the considerable costs of child rearing, or children-rearing for that matter. We could always borrow my mother’s Sony Cybershot DSC-S40 or use the camera from my celphone. And we almost always end up hardly capturing those astonishing moments.
This time, however, I’m almost decided that I’m going to buy that much-desired digicam for my birthday on September. With two months to save up, I seem to be on the right track.
So I did my research and found this beautiful Canon SX200 IS.
Three thumbs up for optical IS, 12.1 megapixels and HD movie recording. It’s pretty handy for something quite powerful. I’m no photography expert and I’ve no intention of buying a DSLR which I couldn’t maximize. A point & shoot cam will work wonders for my photography needs at the moment.
The downside of the SX200, at least for me, is its price. At a whopping P26,950, it’s something that I really won’t be able to afford, at least until September.
It would be nice to have one of these, but I guess I have to settle for something a bit lower end. The realities of being a young parent just keep biting back.
