Last weekend, just before watching the Christmas show at the parking area of Greenhills shopping center, we grabbed the opportunity to buy a point and shot digital camera that fits our budget. This is our gift for each other, from the savings we made for the whole year.
What we got? The Samsung ES73. Why Samsung? My husband and I compared it to most common and known brands, putting into consideration durability, picture quality and the price, we decided on Samsung ES73. Specifications: sleek, 12.2 megapixel, 5x digital zoom. Video and audio recording, red eye reduction and face detection focusing are just some of its features. It has an approximately 9.9MB internal memory and comes with a 2GB external sd card. There were 3 colors to choose from, magenta, red and black. We got the black just to be neutral, although I wanted the magenta. It was priced at P5,999.00 ($133) but with the 20% discount, we got it only at P4,800.00 (approximately $106.67). Good catch isn't it?And just to drain the battery which should be charged initially for 3 hours, I made use of it to take pictures of us which I uploaded as my entry to Mommy and Me Mondays.
For us who are not too much into serious photography rather would want to capture special moments of our children, family and friends, we believe the Samsung ES73 is just but enough.
Yey! no more borrowing of camera from relatives or friends or asking a copy of the photos we are in, or using the camera feature of our mobile phones....
M and I are just proud of what we have accomplished this year and this great buy. Just in time for the holiday season! Picture picture ;)
