I loved the first nice camera I ever bought. I loved up to the point that the lens became very scratched and pictures would end up with smudges on them. Then I bought a series of cameras that were supposed to be good, but I didn’t like.
I finally went back and bought a used seven-year-old camera. The specs were probably not the best for the price point. I didn’t care. I’m more than happy returning to that original camera that I like. It takes pictures like I want it to. Simple, but still lovely.
