So being married and having kids has tought me that for every occasion, season, activity, etc... there is a package of pictures to buy! Fall pictures, winter pictures, spring pictures, cheerleading pictures, basketball pictures, football pictures, gymnastics pictures, christmas pictures........ so on and so on and so forth.... Quite frankly, I feel like I'm being nickle and dimed and ripped off. By the time the year is up we could have bought a really nice camera and taken the damn things ourselves.
So I'm thinkin... tax return time soon... wife's B-Day soon... hrm....
Here's the 2 I'm looking at so far:
I'm very new to this kind of thing so I don't really know the differences between the two other than the megapixel difference. So I don't know if one is worth the extra $130. And I don't even know if I'd really be able to tell the difference between 8 and 10.1 MP.
Basically this camera will be used to take picutres of kids various activities... family type stuff... ya know... most of the kind of thing where you piss away money buying a package of picuters that you're gonna use about half of from some Joe-Blow photographer studio. I'm sure I'll take some of them playing sports and maybe a sporting event here and there. I want to have something with decent quality, but I don't necissarily need to be able to count the stiches on a football while it's in mid-air if ya know what I mean.
Note: I'm not totally stuck on Canon.. I've just always heard good things about them and my buddy has a nice lens for his EOS 35mm that I can probably ninja from time to time.
