I would like to admit something, I’m a camera addict. If I could collect all the cameras around the world, then I will. Right now, I own 2 cameras but carrying an additional one (1) DSLR camera owned by my brother – who lets me borrow it because I’m using it for my work as an Ambassador. Still these cameras (for me) is not enough to have, I want more!
The thing with technology these days is that, every now and then there are more technologies released that are better, upgraded and more ideal for me to have. So I end up not buying the item that I want, and wait for the new one – which is really expensive.
So today, let me share with you the top 5 cameras that I’ve been dying to have but impossible to have – unless I’ll become a millionaire. Check out these photo and video cameras that I think you might like too:
As a travel blogger (too), the GoPro HERO will be really useful for me. I’ve been wanting to take photos and videos of myself, friends or family underwater (since this is a waterproof camera too). Plus being able to take quality photos in small and easy to hide camera will be really great. There are a lot of thieves here, it’s hard to take street photos with a DSLR which might end up getting robbed.
There are a lot of GoPro Hero cameras released already, any will do for me but the latest will be really great which is again expensive for me. So, I think at least the GoPro Hero 3 will do! Still expensive but hey, I’ll try to have this one day - It’s just that cameras are not on top of my must buy list. Check out this video comparison between the GoPro HERO3+ Black Edition and the GoPro Hero 3 by RatedRR:
Samsung NX Mini
It’s available in pink, white, black, mint green and brown. But if I’ll be able to buy one, I’ll surely buy the white one – I don’t know why but I like white and red ones, it’s decent and tough looking.

This camera will be really useful for me and the blog. It will be fast, easy and more fun for me on sharing the events, activities and capture every moment that I am at. Imagine how I’m in love with this camera. Check out this video review by Jims Review Room, if you want to go into details:
Canon EOS Rebel T5i
The DSLR camera that I am currently using is also a Canon, I’m pretty happy with Canon so far with the Canon 500D but then what I don’t like about it is that it doesn’t take videos. And that is why I have to carry an extra point and shoot camera that can take an HD video, which is my Sony Bloggie.
So anyway, if you’re looking for a DSLR camera for yourself then check out the Canon EOS Rebel T5i by TopLevelReviews and find out why I want to have it.
I believe that it’s a compact camera, not a professional camera but since I’m not planning to actually be a professional and that professional cameras are expensive, this DSLR camera will be great for my type.
Nikon 1 AW1
Check out this video from Lexy Savvides of Cnet Australia who just throw it on the (errr.. somewhat kind of a) pond.
Canon Powershot D30
Here’s a video for the Canon Powershot D30 explained by Paxtons Camera Video Digital and showing off the camera. The video and photo seems to be decent enough, let me know what you think:
Interested? Check out this video camera test by Geoff Dean for the Panasonic HC-X920.
It's really clean, clear and the video looks so professional which is great for my blog.
But let's be realistic here, these cameras are way too expensive for me. I could only afford a camera around $500 and I have to save more than I am doing now which makes it impossible for me to get one. But, with the help of blogging and getting more projects online hopefully I'll be able to get my own DSLR camera. As of now, I'm juggling between these two (2):
Canon EOS Rebel T3
What I love most is that it comes in red. I don't know what's with red, it is really attractive for me. The Bloggers Tech blog is red, my Son Vaio laptop was red and now this one too. And oh, check out this Canon 11000 or the Canon EOS Rebel T3 review by fellow Asian DigitalRev:
I was searching for the best camera for me and for the Nikon's side, I believe it's the Nikon D5100. Why, well I know I might be fooled and can be fooled but it's all because of this video (that I believe created by Nikon) wherein it showcases some best functions and features of the camera that will be great for me. Check this out!
I don't know what's with me and the stuff in red, the Bloggers Tech blog is red, my Sony Viao laptop was red, and these 2 cameras comes in red. Wooohoo!
If you notice, there’s no Sony camera on my wish list. That’s because I don’t like buying Sony products anymore, because I bought their Sony Vaio laptop and it just lasted less than a year and now my sister don’t want to give or buy me anything anymore. Blaming me for the quality, but I do admit that I do overuse my gadgets, especially the things that is really useful for me but most of the laptops I had lasted years and not months. So now, I’m avoiding on buying Sony product. Well, unless it’s a gift (LOL).
Still the Sony cameras I have are doing great so far, the Bloggie is okay and after a year of using it I’ll hopefully be able to share with you at least a short review. Hopefully, one day I’ll be able to find ways to get an opportunity to get the latest cameras to be able to give you guys my personal review (since the videos above are not mine) but most likely I have to buy it myself.
I hope you enjoyed my picks for the top photo and video cameras on my wish list. I’ll try to make another wish list for mobile phones, hopefully soon here in Bloggers Tech blog.
