New Camera

After hunting down what the best camera's were to start out with, I finally come across a complete Beauty! 

I really want to get more into photography, not just for blogging but to take up as a hobby. We live in such a nice, countryside area and don't take advantage of what is around us enough so hopefully, with the new purchase of this camera, it will spur us to get out more and to explore the sites of Derbyshire! 

I didn't want to jump straight in and get a DSLR as there is so much to learn when it comes to ISO, Aperture, Shutter speeds etc etc and I wanted to get the hang of those before spending £100's on a snazzy camera that i'd probably be scared to take out of the house! So, scowering the net for the best camera, I was torn between a Fujifilm S2980 or Fujifilm S4300 both being under £120 and having pretty much the same spec, I went for the S4300 because of its gorgeous Red colour! 








At the moment, Argos are offering a £5 voucher when you spend over £50 and a £10 when you spend over £100 so I did my research to get the best offer and here's what I got:

Camera £119.99 + Mini Tripod £7.99 >> Special offer when you buy these together saving £4.00 =
£10 voucher

£10 voucher = 2 x 2GB SD cards £7.99 + Retro Red Fujifilm Camera Case £5.99 = £13.98

Total to pay for Camera, Tripod, 2 x SD Cards and Case = £126.97

I haven't been able to get out and try out my camera yet but when I do, i'll be sure to upload the pictures. The quality of the pictures I have taken at the moment are so good and I can't wait to get to grips with it a little more!
