I am in a not so unique position because my birthday comes a little more than a month after Christmas. This makes for an extended gift recieving season which suits me just fine. This year is a little different, though. I only want one thing for Christmas and my birthday combined (although I suppose I wouldn’t spit at anything else on my My Amazon.com Wish List ) and that is a new camera. I got a camera for my birthday two years ago and I have enjoyed using it all these years. Now, though, I want to move on up (to the east side?) and finally get my dirty mits on a dSLR (digital single lens reflex). The Canon XSi is the top choice for my entry into this wide and wonderful world of sports cameras.

It is perhaps the sexiest camera I have ever laid eyes on. I cannot guarantee that I won’t kiss it when I finally own one. The only problem is that it costs about 600 bucks to buy it. Ouch. As a college student I have a very tight budget and even with both parents working together it’s still kind of a close call. So, if you want to see a new camera in my hands even half as much as I do (and would like to help me get there), I invite you to donate a little to my paypal account. I’ll put the button at the bottom of this post and on the sidebar so you can donate any time you want. I appreciate all of your support (even if it’s just verbal (or written, since this is the internets)).

Would you like to help me buy a camera?
