I may have a bit of an obsession.
You see, I own quite a few cameras.
I’m not sure how it happened, but I’m pretty sure normal people don’t own this many cameras.
It all started with the DSLR – we use it mostly for the blog, and it takes awesome, high-quality photos. Love it.
But, um, it’s big. And heavy. And it’s not very fun to carry it around on vacation, or when we go random places and want a few good photos.
So we needed a point and shoot. We originally bought a point and shoot right around the time we were getting ready for a vacation, though, and so we decided to go with an underwater camera – they’re so nice to have at the beach and it’s awesome to be at the pool and not have to worry about getting the camera wet. We love this one too.
BUT. It doesn’t really take super awesome photos. So, while it’s nice to have, I don’t love the photos that come out of it.
So…we decided to get another point and shoot. One that takes good photos. And isn’t an underwater camera. This way, we can use the underwater one when we’re at the pool or the beach, and use the other one the rest of the time.
What else do we have?
Well, we have a video camera. It’s probably not super necessary, and to be honest we don’t use it as much as I’d like to, but I love having home videos and an actual video camera just works so much better then using a regular old camera to take video. So, I love having it.
Oh, and we’ve both got our iPhones which, while not technically an actual camera, we probably use them more than anything else to take photos on a regular basis. It’s just easy!
So, yeah. We seem to be gathering quite the camera collection – I’m thinking now that we have the second point and shoot (it was a pretty recent purchase), we’ll be done. Five cameras is plenty, right?
Although, I would LOVE an old Polaroid camera…
How many cameras do you own? Is five cameras a lot, or am I just crazy and that’s a totally normal number?
