You Get What You Pay For

I have always been taught that you get what you pay for. Whether it's clothes, kitchen gadgets, toys, etc. Of course there is always the exception. For instance, when I was in school you had to wear American Eagle to be cool. I paid $25-$30 for 1 pair of jeans. Me being heavier set (I like to call it, juicay!), I wore holes in the jeans within a few months. My point is, I have a small beef with my camera. I might not have paid for it but I know how much it really was. I love my mom to death but I know that she would pay the cheapest amount possible to get what she wants. It is like the first generation digital camera. (Side note: I am extremely thankful that I even have a camera). It is soo slow and you can hardly take any semi-professional looking pictures. I would like to think I have the capability to take amazing pictures. During Holidays or Events it wasn't so bad. I may miss the initial reaction to someone opening a gift but with gifts the reaction lasts a good, solid 5 minutes. Therefore I could get away with it. But now that I am blogging (starting slow but working my way to making more posts) its harder to get the right lighting with my stupid flash that might as well be the brightest light from the Georgia Dome. (See my Scrapbook Post for my bad pictures). So even though I'm not necessarily in the market for a new camera it is still nice to dream. So this is what I found:
 Picture Borrowed from here

It is the Panasonic-Digital SLR 12.1 Megapixel Lumix Digital Camera. Now I have no idea what all that means. It does sound fancy though, right? I saw this one and it looked reasonably priced. Going to back to the whole "you get what you pay for" thing. I do not plan on being a professional photographer. I just want to act like one. I found this on Brandsmart USA's website for a whopping $718.88. Definitely not in the cards for us any times soon (again, I like to dream). Maybe I could upgrade to something like a faster digital camera. *Sigh* I guess I'll just have to wait.

Always remember kids...You get what you pay for!
