17 days shy of 3 years… my Lumix digital camera FX-9 would have been 3 years old.
I’ve carelessly dropped my Panasonic Lumix once on the street. I’ve also dropped it during my Mount Kinabalu climb. But the most unforgiving drop happened yesterday… just a small drop from my dining table to the floor… and everything went kaput! The retractable lens barrel only close half-way as the inside filament is teared (I don’t know what it’s called. But it’s that paper thin thing that protects the lens).
I still can repair this camera. But is it worth it?
I’m without a camera now. I feel like I’ve lost a limb.
So I thought maybe this is the sign to get my dream DSLR camera. Ah but no! no! no! My dream DSLR is still way beyond my budget. The one that I can afford Nikon D60 doesn’t have an built-in focus drive motor which means it can auto focus only with lenses which have their own drive motor (AF-S and AF-I lenses) (from dpreview.com). So I don’t know whether it’s good to get this model. Any comment?
Even if I get a DSLR, I still want a compact digital camera for rough use (for family use). So I might as well get a compact one first.
Is is true that DSLR & its kick-a$$ lens cost so much cheaper in US?
Anyone can recommend me a good (as in give discount) camera shop for me in Klang Valley?
… need to … have a … camera by this weekend… beh tahan……
