    I haven't scrapped in a while. I have kits and time and even mojo occasionally, but you know what I don't have? I camera! STILL!! It is driving me bonkers and I don't have enough dough to get a good DSLR (which I desperately want) and I don't have enough time to research the wide array of PAS cameras to see if any of them are actually decent!

    I have wanted a DSLR for about 4 years now and they are so pricey, I feel really bad about even wanting one. Even though I could hone my skills better.

    *sigh*

    I want to take some recent pics of the kids.

        Manda, here is a site that you can compare PAS cameras. It has reviews of almost all the models out. I am sure you can find a good one with a decent price point.

        I have a canon PAS that takes great pictures and it was under $130. Which is a great deal.

          Sorry you're at a stand still Manda. For me, it's hard to get going when I don't have rencent pics of the kids. Sometimes I go through my photo stash and scrap older photos. Maybe you can do that until you get your new camera!

Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

          Thanks Kim! 🙂

          Ang, I have gone through SO many old pics! I am sick of them! LOL

          I want a DSLR because I would love to start taking more art photos and maybe do a few weddings…etc. I already know about shutter speeds and etc…but there is a great class I could take here for that if I need it.

          I am daft when it comes to cameras!! I want to point and shoot and have the camera do all the work. I have no idea what a PAS is. What is it??

          #176342

          Why not just get an inexpensive PAS for now until you can afford the DSLR that you want…..at least you'll have a means of taking some pictures in the meantime.

          I want a DSLR too, but keep on using my trusty PAS until I make the investment in one.

          Manda, you don't need an expensive DSLR to get a great photo. A good PAS is all you need. Don't worry about mega pixels unless you are going to want large photo's. My little Fugi was a 3 MP camera and the photo's were soooo good!! Until you're ready for the big guns, get yourslef a great PAS for under 150.00. When I finally bought my first DSLR, the Nikon D70, I did 10 big photoshoots. Made enough money to buy a few prime lens's and the D300. With my D300, I did 5 big Photoshoots to buy 1 new lens and the D800. I am holding out a bit longer because the D300 does everything I need. But the D800 shoots HD video and I want to get into PhotoFusion. So you see, I started with a great PAS and worked my way up. Nothing wrong with that. Nikon and Canon have wonderful cameras in a wide range of prices.
          I feel you about the old photo's. I am sick of mine as well. And I have TONS!! I try to snag some on Gabbies Facebook page. Some of her Instagram photo's are cool. I need to grab my son for a photoshoot. I'll have to bribe him. lol… Same with my husband. I tell him I need some GQ pics, so I will have to dress him Metrosexual style. He ran away covering his ears….Men…They just don't understand!!! lmao…

          Lisa a PAS is a simple Point and Shoot. The camera does all the work for you. All you do is point….and shoot!!

            Manda I LOVE my DSLR. I got mine during a Thanksgiving sale and i bought a Nikon D40 when they were coming out with the 90…so it was very inexpensive. You can also find them used and then take them to a certified dealer to have it adjusted and cleaned to make sure you are getting the best pics possible.

            Also, pixels don't matter with a DSLR…put your money in the glass. This was a piece of advice I received from a professional photographer when I was contemplating getting one and I don't regret the lesser pixel camera at all.

            Since you aren't really using your mojo or your time…can I borrow them while you don't have a camera? lol

            Andie is right. You see, I still work with my D300, but before I buy the D800, there is one more prime lens I want. It is 1500.00, but I NEED it. Good Glass is EVERYTHING!!!

            #176347

            Lisa, you had the funds though to initially buy the DSLR….you didn't use the PAS to shoot great pics that then paid for your DSLR. ;)

            I will have to check out some reasonably priced and well reviewed PAS….I have had two now that have totally crapped out on me and I am getting to the point where I am not sure if that is a good investment, you know?

            #176348

            And I guess I did do one RR for July…LOL!! So, one page a month….still not a good pace.

              I saw your page its gorgeous. I have 2 cameras and always grab the PAS first. So much easier to use. I had a fugi once it does not bounce well. rolled off the top of my car. It was a good camera. lol

              #176350

              LOL!!!

              I plan on getting one this weekend. I have put it off enough.
