or into this...Carlos is trying to talk me into buying it. He says I *need* it. I tend to agree on a purely greedy basis but in my heart of hearts (and brain of brains...and checkbook of checkbooks) I know I don't. I know the little Canon S1 I bought 6 months ago is perfectly fine. I know, I know, I know.
We were at Best Buy the other day and he asked the camera guy if we could check it out (you know...the typical Best Buy employee...the "we don't work on commission" but are still completely pushy employee. yeah, him.) Anyway, I held it (LOVE how it felt in my hands.) I took pictures (with TWO different lenses AND the external flash.) I found out some of the technical specs (like the FPS...dear Lord, I almost fainted dead away.)
Carlos was urging me to buy it right there...along with the wide angle lens and 2gig card. I'm wondering what ridiculously overpriced piece of equipment my hubby is eyeing that has guilted him into pushing for this. I reign in my overwhelming desire to give in to him. I tell him I need to do research...to check prices as I'm sure I can find a better deal at a reputable online source (SEE how responsible I am?!?) He told me I had a week or he's going back to Best Buy to get it.
The reviews assure me I could take photographs like this if I purchase it.
WHAT do I do?? I'm unemployed...C is under the impression I can make a little side money with this beautiful camera. I know I am no where near ready to do something like that. I just don't have the knowledge. But I NEED the camera to learn right? You see my dilemma.
Talk me out of it.
Or into it.
