Got My New DSLR Camera

One of the joys of blogging is being able to earn money by doing product reviews and direct advertising. I never thought that I can earn money by writing articles. I am not a great writer and I admit that my English vocabulary is just limited. I've been blogging for the past 6 years now and since then I was able to earn money through blogging. I was able to buy my laptop and desk top in 2008 and a lot more. The latest I bought from my blogging money is my Nikon DSLR. I've been wanting to have this but it was so pricey in the Philippines. So I just saved my blogging money and waited till we come back here in the US. Hubby is not in favor to buy another camera because he said it's just a waste of money but I told him I worked my butt off blogging so I can buy that new cam, lol!

When we arrived here in the states, I went to see the price in the store. It's a lot cheaper here than in the Philippines. I wanted to buy it then but hubby said wait for a little while. Maybe he was hoping that he can persuade me not to buy it, lol! So I kept waiting and waiting until last week, we went to Wal Mart and I've seen the price went down by $50. I told hubby I think it's time to buy it now because it might be out of stock later. So I bought the new Nikon D3100, just good enough for an amateur photographer like me. Before upgrading to DSLR, I was choosing between Canon and Nikon. I have both Canon and Nikon point and shoot digicams and I love it both. I was torn which to chose between the two DSLR so I read the customers' reviews and also the features of each camera. I finally I made up my mind after reading the reviews.

I decided to buy the Nikon D3100 Digital SLR. This camera features the 14.2 MP DX-format CMOS Image Sensor along with intuitive controls and on-board assistance helping you take better pictures every step of the way. Plus, it includes 3x 18-55 mm zoom NIKKOR VR image stabilization lens with NIKKOR optical quality and fast, accurate auto-focus for vivid color, striking contrast and crisp detail to ensure the sharpest hand-held pictures and movies. It didn't come with a memory card so I had to buy an SD card. It did not come with a camera bag either so I ordered one in Ebay. I'm still waiting for it in the mail. The price of this camera in the Philippines is a li'l over Php31,000 and that's equivalent to almost $800. That's too much. I bought mine a lot cheaper than that price at Wal Mart and I'm lovin' my new cam.

I love photography and I'm thinking of enrolling in a photography class but then it's too hot here in Texas now. I will just have to be contented with the little knowledge I have about photography. I'm still trying to learn how to use my new camera but here's a couple of pic I took the other day.

Whoaaa! I envy you for having that camera. I have been dreaming to have my own DSLR cam.

You are right, cameras are really part of blogging.

Congrats and enjoy your new toy! :)
