the impulsive buyer hits again........

_____________________________

Never had a digital
camera in my life.
It's either I borrow
or I use the old one, a canon
IXY-D5.......

It runs on
films which in itself is expensive
not to mention the developing.
And since it is not digital,
I cannot upload easily so
I still have to scan them for posting,
very good if you want to waste time.
______________________________

So I said enough. And since Teresa and I will go to Singapore on the 20th, we decided to buy a digital camera finally. Really a late bloomer. kkk. And since our budget is basically streached, we grabbed the cheapest for the best quality possible. It's a G.E G2 camera.



Strange coz in the Philippines we would think GE is a refrigerator, right? Well, got news for you, they are venturing in all electronic items daw according to the sales clerk. And since it's relatively new, it's basically cheaper. Introductory price whatever. I had it for Php 9,995 or $ 222. A bit cheap I guess for 8Megapixels and a 4X optical zoom. Also comes with a free 1Gig memory card but you could insert 4 Gig if you want. I don't know if this is a good buy. To be honest, I didn't read any user reviews on this product.

Looks like the impulsive buyer in me struck again. Nways, it has a 1 year warranty so I might as well take advantage of that.....

  1. Beware...travelling can be so addicting.

    Brace yourselves. Your feet will be aching for more places to wander into.

    There won't be enough places to satisfy your wanderlust...

    Enjoy Singapore! :)

  3. I'm not very good in this but I heard built in focus (zoom) are not recommended..hope you think twice!

    and I would personally recommend Canon. Canon provides the best lens. But I only know about this after I have got my Kodak. Huhu..

  4. Nyek! You know what, I opted to buy me a really cheap MP4 because 1-it has camera built in, 2-it also has a slot for memory card, therefore I can use my memory card reader whenever I would want to upload pictures over the net...and the resolution is okay too...plus the fact that I wouldn't want to grow fungus saving up for a real digital camera LMAO! 3-I can also play music and do camwhoring at the same time, ehehehehe!

  8. cool.

    anw, 8MP, and with that screen, I'd say that's a good buy.

    saying that, I really have no clue. If I buy something I dont listen to what other people say. Bad, but that's me. lol.
