We see the post all the time, what is the best camera to buy, etc and so forth. So I was thinking, what if...
You have a TOTAL budget of $4,000.00 and you can buy any camera, gear and extras you want. You cannot add to the budget, EVERYTHING must fall within budget, no gimmicks to add funds. (I state this because when some have asked for suggestions and posted a budget some of the suggestions are WAY over the stated budget.)
1) Keep within budget for the camera, extra gear, and all extra toys.
2) Post the link to your dream
3) WHY- Why did you pick that camera, what appealed to you about it, what features stood out to you the most.
Keep in mind, make it appealing by featuring the benefits of the camera, not personal loyalty to a brand or company, I am a Canon fan myself, but if there is a camera that falls within budget that is better I will jump ship.
Why a limit of $4,000.00? If I had to venture a guess, most people could get a small loan for $4,000.00 easier than any other amount. It seems like banks and lending places do not like to go over that as a general rule. At least in my area. Also most people if forced can scrape together $4,000.00, you can. I scraped together over $7,500.00 in two days once, without going to a back, it does help that several of my friends and family members make 7 figures a year, but I never take advantage, I pulled that resource when closing the house.
So...lets start the game....
