Unrequited Love....

I decided that since I am about to embark on what is definitely shaping up to be the trip of lifetime, it was time to bite the bullet and throw down for a new picture takin' machine. I managed to get through my semester of photography school with only rented and borrowed cameras, as I was too much of a commitment phobe to pick one out. But, as my departure date loomed and I started in search of the perfect camera, yet again, little did I know I was about to fall in love. Yep, it was love at first sight.

Meet is the Fujifilm Finepix X100, also known as Mr. Dreamboat. I'll give you a minute.


A digital camera with all the modern day qualities a girl could want, packaged perfectly with just the right amount of vintage aesthetic. Does it get any better? No, it does not. Like I said, it was love.

But alas, as these things often go, this will be a story of unrequited love, which I quickly realized once I saw Dreamboat's price tag. But don't feel too bad, you see to help mend my broken heart, I ordered up this cutie...

Not quite a DSLR, but a little more than a standard point-n-shoot, I am hoping the Nikon P7000 fits me just right.  I have been wanting a DSLR for sooo long now, but I think I have continually delayed buying one because secretly, I am scared that the bulk will deter me from using it. I am hoping this camera will give me a taste of the DSLR-like functions, but with the ease and portability I'm not quite ready to give up.

The only problem is, that with work and running around getting last minute stuff ready for my trip, I have barely gotten to take it out of the box! On that 9 hour plane ride I have a feeling me and the manual are going to get acquainted, real quick.

I swear, I feel like the luckiest girl in the whole world.  An amazing adventure about to begin and a rad new camera! I am extremely grateful!!

  1. wow! Mr Dreamboat certainly takes your breath away! I'd never seen that before. But pretty pricey, indeed!

    Good luck with your new friend :) I have a low-end dslr and it's got 1/2 the bulk of the high-end ones. You might try starting there, and buying used ;)

  2. Tsuki~ great tip on starting out with a used DSLR! Thanks :)
