I have the tools to bore you once again. Sorry folks but I've just bought myself a DSLR so you can now expect this blog to be splattered with even more images in the coming weeks and months. I have to admit it wasn't the camera I was expecting to buy. After much agonising over the decision I had decided I wanted a Fuji S5, Mainly because I've had a Fuji camera before and was impressed with the colour that it produced and the S5 had a far superior dynamic range to the other cameras out there at the moment. With its ability to take Nikon lenses it meant that there wouldn't be a shortage of upgrade problems if I had decided not to continue buying Fuji cameras in the future. However at £850 it's not exactly a cheap camera and at this moment in time when my career direction currently uncertain I couldn't exactly justify that cost.
I probably wouldn't have bought a camera at all at this stage had there not been a special offer. I managed to get a Sigma Sd14 for £499 plus £200 cashback. Not bad considering it was less than 10 months ago that it hit the market at £1099. Personally I would never have paid that kind of money for it. Its a good camera that is capable of great images but it doesn't have all the bells and whistles of cameras in that price range. That in itself doesn't bother me, I quite like the freaks of nature. Maybe because I'm an oddball myself.
It will however mean a whole lot of learning until I get used to the damn thing but at £299, with a free lens to boot, I think I can put up with that. Then I'm afraid you can expect images to accompany my posts which as usual will have nothing to do with the subject matter. Sorry about that! Tis the price you pay for coming here, well that and my long winded rambling.
