paid off my Olympus SW790!

I paid off my camera! I'm so happy that after 9 months of 0% interest, I'm finally free of paying every month for my Olympus SW790 baby.

I'm also glad that I've been receiving compliments from people with the different pictures that I took of this waterproof camera. Although in this blog, I did do some minor editing, cropping and sharpening, I'm glad that it's not anything major.

I need to get my camera cleaned though, I haven't had it checked since my trip in Siargao. However, I'm afraid that if I have it cleaned, then it wouldn't be restored as compact as it was first bought. I'm still thinking twice. But I know I need to have it cleaned cause it's still under warranty. I still have around 3 months for my warranty to be over and definitely, I don't want to pay extra.

I was a bit hesitant cause I've been debating whether I should buy this or the Pentax W30 since they're both waterproof. I've been able to create an entry out of it - Olympus SW 790 vs Pentax w30. But since I started getting those compliments (which is the time when i just purchased it), I knew I made the right decision.

Now that I have a point-and-shoot camera, I'm now wanting to buy a Professional DSLR. But I know that'll be far off for now since I'm still on a tight budget cause I'm going back to school. I need to update my accounts which are really big.

Oh well, let's hope I can get a Pro DSLR soon.

Just wondering, do you think you missed out on something since you bought a waterproof cam vs a normal point and shoot cam? Thanks!

A good photographer does not need to edit his/her photos. Right? :D
