Hey guys! I haven't been on in awhile, life is keeping me stupid busy! How is everybody? :hug:: So- my question- I'm looking seriously into getting a DSLR. Now, I don't have a ton of money, 500 bucks max to buy a used one. With my digi cams, they always go kaput after a year. I was talking to someone from Best Buy (yes, not the best frame of reference, I know lol) and I was wondering why my Canon A430 all of a sudden had such a slow response time. It takes a good 3-8 seconds for the camera to take the photo after you press the button. Since it wasnt a settings issue, he pretty much said these things give out after a certain amount of time and I just need a new cam. Is the same true for DSLRs? If I get a used one, am I running the risk of having something similar happen? Maybe not the same problem, but something will be off with it? Thanks guys!
