Morgan and I have decided that with the inevitable arrival of the baby that we need a new camera. Actually we think we need TWO new cameras; a still-photography camera and a video camera. The last time we purchased a camera was 2001 and so technology has changed a bit. It seems the latest rage is to get a Digital SLR camera (a dSLR as those in the “biz” say), but we just don’t know what to get and what matters. Also, it seems that there are two types of video cameras now; ones with harddrives and ones with removable flash memory. Again, we are unsure of the pros and cons of each.
We currently are debating between a Nikon dSLR and a Canon dSLR, but we really don’t have a clue. It may be that we just need to buy a regular digital camera and not a dSLR (but the sales lady made some good points about catching kids emotions on a dSLR, but we may just be suckers). And we haven’t even begun to debate about video cameras yet.
We are doing some research on cnet.com, but we were hoping that all 3 of you that read this blog (okay, who are we kidding, all 2 of you) can help us make this big decision. If you have a camera, video or regular, and you love it or hate it, please let us know. Any and all advice is welcome in the comments section!
