Can’t decide on a camera? . . . Top Rated Digital Cameras
If your looking to buy a new digital camera, but the last time you bought a camera, they used something called film your likely confused as hell. Anyone under 19 probably has no idea what I’m talking about, or even why that first sentence is funny. OK, maybe it wasn’t that funny, but I’m just a simple blogger, not George Carlin. Now I’ve probably lost the under 35 crowd, but . . . . oh never mind, lets talk cameras.

My memoir is:
Life’s a Gamble, Persistence Is Omnipotent
My memoir is not totally original, but inspired by a quote I read a few years ago by Calvin Coolidge:
“Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination are omnipotent. The slogan press on has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”
I’ve never been one to be satiated with the status quo. In my younger years, I ran the regular go to college, get a 9-5, get married and have a family script. But then after a few years I started taking some adventurous gambles with my career and personal life. Sometimes they worked out beautifully, and sometimes not so much. Like for example buying a 30 foot sailboat without ever taking a sailing lesson or having even been on one before. 6 years later, some of our best family memories have to do with the adventures that inevitably come from sailing the Great Lakes. Career wise, things have been a real roller coaster. The highs include taking a very lucrative consulting job with tons of travel and a young family, while the lows have included struggling to get a personal web based business off the ground. While there may be some things I would have done different, I wouldn’t ever change my decisions to “take the leap” for any of them. Read more
Ok, all you wafflers out there, this ones for you. In case you haven’t noticed, I run a little camera search tool on this site called the Personal Camera Finder. It’s goal is to help people find a camera that has all the features they want within their budget. One of the questions I ask my visitors is whether they would buy a camera online.
I know relatively few people in the real work that would order items online. So, I’ve always been of the notion, that people look for information on their future purchases online, but actually make the purchase in a bricks and mortar store at their local strip mall.
Now, assuming that people are telling the truth, I may have been somewhat misguided. I don’t have a large sample size at the moment, but the numbers go something like this. 44% say Yes . . . 34% say Not Sure . . . 14% say Maybe . . . 8% say No. Well, surprise surprise. It looks like like the majority of people say they will buy a digital camera online, a larger chunk 48% (Not Sure & Maybe) are conflicted, and only a small minority say no.
Interesting. Well in the spirit of saving the planet and promotion of a better way of life for all, I’m going to give you undecided masses some good reasons to buy a digital camera online. Read more
