I’ve decided: I’m going to buy me a small compact photo camera. The one that I have now is way to big to take with me on a daily basis. It’s just not practical.

It’s been 2 months since my AllView phone died on me (the battery couldn’t handle my usage). I never realized how much that phone meant to me and I really miss it. From the awesome photos it took, to playing Pokemon on it, it was a part of my daily life, and it always delivered. The iPhone 4 that I am using now (which is Johnny’s old phone), doesn’t satisfy me at all (I won’t even get into details, just thinking about it makes my blood boil).

While I was looking to buy a new smartphone with a good camera, I realized it would be cheaper to buy a small compact photo camera. After all, on the phone I use a few applications (Instagram, Mail, and a few games).

But I always want to take pictures. Photos are an essential part of my life. It’s the way I record my memories, from the random ones to the most important. That’s why I will switch my focus from a new smartphone to a new compact photo camera.

That and the prices have gone down a lot since I bought my original Sony photo camera, back in 2007 (which by the way, is still flawless and works like new). So, I’ve decided on Sony DSC-W800. It’s one of the cheapest models on the market, but at the same time it can also deliver.

A compact photo camera

Initially I wanted to buy a Nikon or a Cannon. But decided against it. I’m familiar with the DSC models from Sony, and I’ve never been let down by the quality of their products (the fact that my Walkman is still alive after 5 years & that my initial photo camera works after 8 years, proves their durability). And, as far as a compact photo camera, it’s a great model for beginners and amateurs like me.

As soon as my pay check comes in August, I’m hitting the stores to buy this little baby (the black model). Hopefully I’ll find and a pouch for it at a reasonable price. The reason why my electronics last as long as they do, is because I also take good care of them.
