I think I've finally settled on the type of camera I'd like to get. My little Canon Elph is struggling to keep up with what I want it to do and, well, I feel bad. I've exceeded the make of my camera! ;.; I'll definitely be keeping it as a backup since it still takes decently sharp area photos barring low-light situations.
My future camera will (most likely) be a Nikon D3000 or D3100.
I've reached this conclusion after months of trawling Flickr and scrolling through raw photos taken by various and sundry cameras. I've also liked Canon (who doesn't, they're fabulous) but Fuji surprised me. There were a couple different Fuji models I hovered on for over a week. I even pondered some Olympus models but it definitely looks like my finalist will be a Nikon to compliment my girlfriend's Canon. ^^ Back in high school my photography professor said Nikon was the 'dark twin of Canon' which is probably a load of horseshit but hey, that's Fryeburg Academy for you.
In other news: Abbey Bominable's Dead Tired version is coming to live with me! ♥ She might arrive by Friday or Saturday so I'll get some pictures when that happens.
My favorite eBay shop restocked items I'm not sure I can live without. *-* What is my life these days? I suppose boredom + being cooped up in the middle of nowhere = a desire to instigate a creative explosion.
Why must hobbies cost money? It's so depressing.
