I’ve decided that my summer splurge won’t be jewelery like EVERY OTHER YEAR but instead if I want to keep improving my blog I need a new camera.

I need one that is easy to use, not super expensive and really durable.  Well because-I’m really clumsy, don’t want to spend a fortune and have little patience when taking photos.

This one at $1699.00 will not make the cut. 

Olympus E-5

Nor will this one at nearly $8000.00.  For $8000.00 I would want it to get up each morning and make me breakfast, iron my clothes and change the baby’s diaper.  Perhaps a neck massage too.

Canon EOS-1D Mark IV

Any suggestions?
