Best Buy Wants to Help You Capture and Store Your Memorable Moments at a Price That WON'T Break the Bank!

As many of you have already guessed from my recent posts both here and across my Social Media sites, I am on the hunt for a new Digital Camera. Don't get me wrong, my first 'real' Digital Camera is an Olympus that I love, love, love, it's compact, sturdy (over the years it has withstood quite a few steep falls and is still ticking), and it takes way better pictures than any mobile device I've tried.

But much like my blog has evolved throughout the years, so have my photography skills and it's time to make the big (price-wise) and scary leap of upgrading to a DSLR, and I have my choices narrowed down based on recommendations from friends, family, consumer reviews and other bloggers I have queried.

Instagram pictures from events will always have their place to share information when I am at an event or conference and don't have time or access for a full post. But to me nothing, and I mean nothing, beats the optical quality of a picture taken from a camera. Very few smart phone or smart device photos can actually rival those of a good quality camera.

Not to mention, those important memories are ones that you will want to share and even enlarge and frame, and very few smart phone photos are of sufficient optical quality to be able to enlarge them without them becoming blurry, pixelated and for all intensive purposes, useless.

I have been doing my research and I've narrowed down my choices to either the Canon - EOS Rebel T5i pictured below:

or the Nikon - D3200 24.2-Megapixel Digital SLR Camera pictured below:

I hear great things about both cameras, If you have either one, please post a comment and let us know what you think!

As an 'April Baby' Spring is my season, my Spring Memories Season, first my birthday in April, Mother's Day in May, and in June there are June Weddings to attend, Graduation Ceremonies to attend and Father's Day too and let's not even get started on summer vacations! My favorite take home from any vacation is my photos!

With Mother's Day swiftly approaching, many people often wonder what to get Mom, whether it's your mom you are shopping for, or for men that are shopping for their wives & the mother of their children. I will stop and tell you first and foremost what NOT to get mom, do NOT get mom a new household cleaning appliance for Mother's Day. That is not a gift for HER. Get her something that she will cherish and treasure for always.

Insignia™ - 8" LCD Digital Photo Frame, Digital Photo Frames,

I for one am incredibly tech oriented, so for me a new DSLR would get my heart racing, but there are ways to get a tech friendly gift for those who are not necessarily tech oriented, a Digital Photo Frame is a great gift for mom (a new DSLR + a Digital Photo Frame would be even better, just saying!), it's a great way to store treasured family memories. (Extra Brownie Points for pre-loading it with her favorite photos and setting it up for her!). And with Best Buy offering Digital Photo Frames less than $50, you can get the moms in your life a meaningful gift that doesn't break the bank!
