Hugghhnnbbbbllluugghhhhhhhhhhh

Not feeling great tonight, so no new Paxton tonight. There'll be one tomorrow, though. Go vote in yesterday's chapter if you haven't yet!

I'm having second thoughts about getting a super 8 camera. It would be fun, but I think a digital HD camcorder would be a smarter investment. Yes, it would cost considerably more up front, but it would be more useful, I think, and cheaper in the long run.

I dunno. Thoughts?

I think you'll find the HD camera more useful, but I highly recommend pricing it out because to get the kind of quality you should get, it'll be a pretty penny.

What sort of camera do you guys have? I've been looking at this one, which seems like a good balance between quality and cost, but it's so hard to tell. Thoughts?

I actually don't know the model/specs since the cameras are actually laetificat's, but from my rough knowledge of her cameras, that one is quite a bit better than what we use. I know she was considering upgrading her cameras and talking about selling us her old ones, and I was considering just spend an extra $700 or so to buy something that would fit our needs a bit better.

I believe her cameras were in the $1,200 range when she bought them (which I think they were maybe 6-months old at the time? no the latest model), so I think finding something in the $2K range is probably a good idea for balancing price/quality.

But I don't know really! :D

After the $2-3K range it jumps up to the $8-9K range, so I certainly hope so. ;) I like that one because the settings seem very customizable. Also, I just like Canon.

I just like Canon, too. I try not to let brands influence me too much, but CANON. ♥_♥

I mean, I've never used a Canon movie camera, but out of all my still cameras, my Canons tend to be my favorites. My new-old SLR is a Canon, and I LOVE it.

I think Canon is pretty solid on digital video as well.

You can totally make more money if you just buy generic aspirin and convince them it's something good.

I've watched Go too many times.

I'm going to guess it's because you're not trying to get me into bed?

Which, btw, :( :( :(

Haha, oh, I do my Irish accent for everyone. And my Russian accent. And my Australian one.

And SORRY, but I'm trying to cut back on the number of married ladies I seduce. It's difficult, but for the best.
