My dead camera

Well, it is official.  My Fujifilm finepix digital camera that I received for my birthday about 4 years ago, has finally bit the dust.  The poor thing cannot focus anymore or take more than a couple pictures without killing the battery.  I even bought a replacement battery for it a couple months ago, but it did not really help any.

So, I guess since I am having to replace it, I might as well upgrade to an SLR.  I am looking at some of the Sony SLR cameras.  I have a nice Minolta 35mm camera with a couple lenses that I can use on any of the Sony SLRs.  The Sony SLR cameras are the only SLRs that you can interchange with other cameras’ lenses.  Steven, my husband says the Sony SLR AD200 is decent for the price. 


I think that this one might be the winner.  I also looked at some of the higher end point and shoot cameras.  However, Steven is of the opinion that if we are going to buy a new camera, we might as well spend the money and buy something that will last for a good few years.  I am of the opinion that technology changes to rapidly, that it will be outdated in a couple years….so…why not play it safe now.

Does anyone own an SLR and do you like it?
