I want this as a birthday gift

canon a95As of now, it would be very unpractical for me to request a digital SLR camera but Canon A95 would suffice. And besides, I know I won’t get this one from Mom or Dad by just using my “lambing” moves on them. However, it pays to be diplomatic. I know I’ll get this one, and like all parents who have working kids, they would say something like, “You have to pay for this”. And thank you for the term monthly installment, without that, no 5-megapixel digital camera on my birthday! Haha!

The only thing that’s not so good about this model is the use of AA type batteries as a power source. But the good thing about this one is that you can control the shutter speed. It also has a rotating LCD. Thus, if you’re vain and you’re a trigger-happy type of person, then this camera is for you.
