It was really a surprise when my husband finally agreed to get a camera for me. I’ve been wanting to get a new camera, preferably semi-SLR, where I can use for my product shot… I have two brands in mind: CANON G11 and Panasonic Lumix DCS LX-3.
Initially, I wanted to get CANON for it’s user-friendliness and my current camera is also CANON. But the price is quite steep… :( Then my friends suggested LX-3. It’s more compact and comparable to CANON G11 with slightly lower price.
Almost every visit to any electronic stores, I would play with these 2 cameras. Well, during then, my husband was strongly against the idea of getting a new camera cos, 1stly, I don’t have a stable income and 2ndly, these cameras are not cheap. He finds it a waste of money. Well, he’s always a better financial planner and controller than me… =P
Out of the blue, yesterday, he drove me around to look for my camera!! I was very surprised and un-prepared… Still not sure which one to get… Then, I ‘sms’ed Ngiam, my good friend and also a photographer, to ask him for advise. All I asked: “Should I get G11 or LX3?” His answer was straightforward:”Leica lens. Wins CANON anytime”. =P Took his advise, I decided to get LX-3!
Then we went from Expo to Funan just to check for better deal.. Walked around a few shops and finally, we bought from SLR-Revolution. :) Initially, I wanted to pay by 12 monthly installments. Less than S$100 a month, I still can afford. The most, I do more dolls… =P But who knows, my husband quickly took out his card and paid for me!!! I was sooo surprised and touched… ;)

In future, I won’t need to spend too much time in editing….=P
