No, it's not the "no sex" thing.
I can imagine her look of disappointment when I go get something so expensive without informing/discussing with her.
No doubt, she may eventually forgive me, but it's something that I do not want to do.
But thanks for the advice, dude.
It will most certainly work for others.
just buy it then she nth to say...
like me i also buy 1st include lens all then only told she..she sure nothing to say any more just will bla bla bla but after few day is ok haha..
Since you don't seem to be able convince yourself to convince your wife, why not start with a 2nd hand set from BNS, it can even be lower entry level DSLR, if that's what you looking for. Or if you are concern about weight, then maybe try research the mirrorless cameras m43 (Olympus, Panasonic), Sony, Samsung, Ricoh...as good picture quality with great portability. Again the BNS has great bargains sometimes. Buying 2nd and selling it later won't lose much, that probably will help to convince her - Don't like sell off without much loss, sounds like a proposition to me
Dont buy it for yourself, tell her you feel like buying her a dslr.
She say "What?? Why?".
Reply "Cause I want you to use the camera to capture my macho moments, and you could post it on facebook so your friends can be amazed with your photography skills!".
She will ask "How much is the dslr?"
You reply "Depends lor.. I think I will buy a cheap dslr, even though the image quality is lousier, they say photography is not easy to learn. if you don't like to use the camera, then the actual loss is lower."
She will say "I think get the more expensive one la.. cheap one later spoil fast. troublesome. how much?"
You say "a few thousand for a very good one."
She will exclaim "SO EXPENSIVE?!".
You can reply
1."as expensive as the ring on your finger, but it has more actual use".
2."you are definitely worth all the money in the world buying the camera, because I **** you.."
1. Don't be to hesitant to borrow the camera too often from her, or she will know the true reason you bought the camera.
2. Remember to buy yourself an even better camera, if you find that she uses the camera too much.
3. If she doesn't use the camera much, good for you. You just got yourself a camera
just buy it...... U scare wife issit!!!
Take both its legs down first, then cuts its tail, next is shoot between its eyes:devil:
Buy chanel bag, then gucci, then LV, then your DSLR
when i buying expensive stuffs for myself such as bicycle, inline skate boots or a powerkite.. i will tell her in advance.. maybe 2 3 months earlier..
but when i got interested in dslr, i told her 6 month in advance LOL
'dear.. im saving now to buy a new cam'.. and of course there will be some feedback from her about the price, usefulness etc..
along the way.. as other bros here mentioned.. show her some pic online taken by DLSR.. the sharpness, the clarity.. bla bla bla
when im ready to buy.. i bring her along..
but i never tell her when im buying new lenses...
Get NEX-5N la.. same D7000 sensor anyway.
You need to know your own motives for wanting to get a DSLR. What are they?
