Given that the point of this whole blogging thing is to get traffic on my blog so I can launch into doing some of these crafts as a business; and
Given that Pinterest has become basically a study in who takes the best pics; and
Given that the whole point of Pinterest is, again, to promote whatever creative venue I pursue as a means of generating income; and
Given that I'm half afraid to even take pics since all I have is the camera on my phone;
Thus, I have concluded that . . .
ALRIGHT, ALRIGHT, ALRIGHT ALREADY! I NEED A NEW CAMERA!
With the limited research I've done so far I'm thinking of the following criteria:
- Point and shoot model! -- cuz I'm not a professional photographer so I want it to be easy to operate, and small cuz I wanna tote it around to tag sales, garage sales, thrift stores, craft shows, etc.
- At least 12 Megapixels, right?
- 5x zoom at least, maybe more if I can get it?
- budget = $200
You know I'm always looking for a bargain so I'm gonna check Craigslist and eBay first. Here's what I've found so far:
Fujifilm Finepix XP20 Digital Camera, 14-Megapixel Resolution, 2.7 inch Anti-Reflective, High-Contrast LCD, 5x Zoom Lens, Orange; $60
Canon Power Shot SD 1200 IS Digital ELPH, 10-Megapixel, $170
Kodak Easyshare Digital Camera: •10.2 MP Digital Camera - $60.00
•3x Optical Zoom
Fujifilm finePix JV100 12-megapix digital camera, $60
Nikon COOLPIX S4100 14.0 MP Digital Camera - Purple, $105
Nikon COOLPIX L24 14.0 MP Digital Camera - Red, $79.80
Nikon COOLPIX S3100 14MP Silver Digital Camera with 6x Zoom + 4GB Bundle , $99.95
I'm researching these cameras and combing blogs for advice.
I'd love it if some of my fellow bloggers would weigh in and tell me what you are using or give me feedback about the types of cameras I'm looking at.
Hoping for some comments!!!!!!!
