As if I need another hobby... I've been thinking about getting a new camera. Possibly a DSLR. My Canon Powershot has been great, but it just doesn't capture a busy toddler very well. A lot of my pictures end up all blurry these days. When Grace was a baby, I'd set her in her rocking chair near a window and she would sit there while I snapped away. Now, I'm very lucky to get one or two good pictures of her out of twenty while she's on the move. I've been reading up on DSLR's, namely a Canon model, and the image stabilization technology is supposed to nearly eliminate this problem. I also just like taking photos in general (see my knitting photos), so I think it would be a fun toy.
I really can't justify this purchase right now, but it's nice to think about. I also think it's been on my mind because I recently dropped my camera and the battery closure thing snapped off, so it's held on there with tape. I could probably get it fixed at a service centre, but I've been thinking of it as a sign that I should get a new camera. Sejin is probably cringing as he reads this.
Any of you with DSLRs out there, what is your advice? And if anyone knows of any used ones for sale, please let me know.
