I want it. I've been looking for a new camera (mainly DSLR's) ever since...well, ever since I got my first camera in December. Maybe it's a little early for a new one, but my Kodak Easyshare Z612 has been a little slow lately, and it's not living up to the quality I want to see in my pictures. I've seen other people around TPF who have the FujiFilm, and every one of those photos has been what I'm looking for. I know that the photographer-- not the camera-- is the most important part, but something like this seems like it would really improve my photos. I don't think I'm ready for a DSLR yet. I've been looking at some, but 1) the nice ones are way over my budget, and 2) I don't think I'd be able to figure one out. I have a Pentax K1000 from eBay, but still haven't used it since I'm waiting to go to my grandma's (next week) and see if I'd rather use an old Nikon film SLR she has. Anyways, the bottom line is, that my mom (who I told all of this to about 5 minutes ago), doesn't think I'm 'ready' for a new camera. She says that if my Kodak isn't living up to it's standards, that it's still on warranty, and we can go and get it fixed free of charge. This is true, but I still really want a different camera, preferably this Fujifilm FinePix. Kodaks just don't seem to work perfectly with what I want in photography. Do you think I should splurge, and get the new camera, despite my mom's unhappiness; or get my Kodak 'fixed', and wait a year or so to buy a new one? http://shopping.yahoo.com/p:Fujifilm%20FinePix%20S5200%20Digital%20Camera:1992943172age=details .
