Latest purchase.

Yesterday I made an impulse buy. Actually, I don't think it can really be considered an impulse buy, since I've been wanting a new digital camera for a really long time now. And yesterday afternoon I found a really awesome deal, so I jumped all over it.

Don't get me wrong, I love my old digital camera. Even though it's over 4 years old and sort of big and boxy and the LCD screen is tiny and the "zoom" is laughable, it still takes some great photos. And it's documented fabulous times: two stints in London, four Christmases, two Hawaiian vacations, friends' weddings, a cruise, Harry Potter midnight showings, graduation, moving to New York City...But now it's time to say goodbye, camera. We had a good run, but we always knew this wouldn't last forever. I'm trading you in for a younger, sexier model:

Sleek design, image stabilization, better zoom, double the megapixels, and a nice LCD display. And the best part is, this camera cost less than half of what I paid for my old one 4 years ago. Technology!

Edit: OMG IT JUST ARRIVED! I ordered it yesterday, with regular (free!) shipping. My life is a totally kick-A fairytale.


  1. i want one!!! where did you get it?? i want details!

  2. I think we have the same camera, but we got it like over a year ago so we are like, WAY ahead of you. Technology!

  3. Tamara - I found the deal on SlickDeals. The deal is from Dell (, the coupon code is ?ZZL7GW20P5$SK and last I checked it was still working. Let me know if you have any trouble.

    Mars - I think yours is the SD750, right? I think I remember asking you when you were here because I was trying to decide. The one I got is the SD1100 and it's new this year. So THERE!

  4. You and Marisa make me laugh! I am also looking at getting another new digital camera so I can have one at school and one at home all the time. Thanks for the tips and adding your expert advice! I hope all is going well in New York City!

  5. Okay, I'm slightly bitter because I have your old camera and still love it, and you've had two Hawaiian vacations.


  6. where did you get it? and how much was it? totally kick-A fairytale?? that is funny

  7. That's a svelte, sexy beast of a camera.
    I bought one ( a few months ago because the old one had fallen into one too many swimming pools.

    and, um... Your Ex-lover is Dead IS a pretty sweet track.

  8. do you check slickdeals 8 times a day like I do? isn't it the best?

  9. Laura!! This is Tara from your freshman days. I'm not sure how I found your blog but here I am. I love it! What a super-fabulous life you have! Hope things are going well-- just wanted to say hello and let you know I will be stalking you from now on!

  10. HA! Leigh, I have SlickDeals on my Google Reader, that is how big of a nerd I am. I must have the deals the instant they appear!

    Tara - hey! I always welcome new blog stalkers, because I am a primo stalker myself. it's good to hear from you!

  11. Nice! I just got that same camera about a month ago...A belated birthday gift from my hubby. It's fabulous. You'll love it.
