Camera Buying Fun!


Gray dome to the max!

Im not sure if it is spelled "gray" or "grey", but either way it is so think I can just barely see the other side of the lake!! But, at least it is warming up a bit.

When you get bit by the photo bug, it can lead to a pretty serious addiction. It seems in our house we are always making content. Whether photos, vids or even music, photography detritus is everywhere. A soft box here, a tripod there, oh dont trip on all those power cords!

Not to mention the dreaded, "Did anyone see my memory card?!?"

Well you know the tune. Once you buy one camera, it inevitably leads to buying additional gear to go with said camera...and so it goes, on and on lol. Then you (think) you realize that this camera is lighter and smaller and wouldn't that be a great addition to the happy home we have :)

Speaking of Market Friday, my daughter just picked this up from a store in the mall for Ben, pretty cool.

And the best part my that daughter decided (wisely) that I needed a bit of an after Christmas gift. I mean who says that Christmas cant live on and on! Who am I to argue about it :)

P1330163.JPG

Come on, be honest, who doesn't like getting a gift or three?

The old and the new one...

Here are a few camera accouterments that we happened to score for "free".

I mean after all the Sony IS smaller, who can argue with that logic!

You even get a decent carry bag, coz it is "free" after all.

P1330170.JPG

The bag alone is forty bucks by itself, so of course we have to get that deal.

P1330172.JPG

Of course we do! The OldGuy will even throw in a few bucks. A nice new Sony to play around with for only one tenth of the total, oh yeah I like that math :D Come on boys, lets order that one tonight!

P1330167.JPG

Why, today is not as dreary after all :) As usual for a Market Friday post, we need to thank the hostess with the mostest, @dswigle for keeping that challenge growing week after week!

Say boys, when do I get my turn with it??? I mean I got videos to do and a blog to write...What? Yall are taking it away for the weekend? Wait a minute, now I think I smell a rat... lol.

Same thing is happening with me too, but I try to get every new gear every year so that I have enough time to play around the old gear and get better at it.

Oh! Did you buy another camera? Who knew? It looks awesome and well, it looks like Ben is really interested in it. Good thing you work as a team and the good thing is now you have the two cameras!

I love the mirrorless one and I wish you a lot of luck with it. You have already done some amazing things with your camera, so I look forward to these!

I love the little dragon and the geode! Nice to keep the spirit of Christmas in the air!

MarketFriday loves you!

I do not have the money to buy a proper camera.
And even if I would have it, I still would not buy it, because almost no one cares about my Steem blockchain posts, no matter what I post, what I write about, what I do, what I try.
It is not worth me to post anything on the Steem blockchain.
But I upvoted your blog post and I call !trdo to support your work.

Each camera comes with new tricks, have fun test driving this one and new kit.

Sadly the big rig stays home more often than not due to crime, bright side of life is a pocket size digital to play with everywhere you go.

Have an awesome day.
