which one are you?

3 main sorts of cam buyers:[list=1][*]This type of buyer knows what he wants and just gets it when the time is right, and usually makes a good buy. They are women and men who come here to research first.[*]Then there's the type that wonders about from store to store, kicking tires and feeling which one is puffy and which one is not. Sooner or later a shark spots him, and the buyer ends up with cr_polla while paying too much. In the end he's happy because he didn't know better (and still doesn't or just doesn't care). This type is usually a male, but sometimes not sure.[*]Researching and posting and always really reading a lot. D_mn! This type never buys! Ding dong, just when the right one is found, it's discontinued or the cupboard is bare. (Usually bottle collecting males.)[/list=1]

If the GS400 will be made of titanium and even though it's not yet available, I'd buy one today. So that would make me #1, even if I'm only a #3. I hope everyone understands this. :-))

Well they all apply to my....

# 1 because I knew what I wanted.

# 2 because I kicked the tires at Fry's in Phoenix looking at the form factor of the DV953 and the handling before I bought it. Then I wanted to see the GS70 and so on and so on.

And finally # 3 because I researched information and posted here and another site then compared video to several different models before making my decision. The difference here is that I finally (and I mean finally) bought!

I don't know which one I am. I've been coming here every day since October. I don't post much, but I read and learn as much as possible. Now I know what camera I want and I'm saving the money for it, but I'm not there yet.

How about a number 4. The person who didn't know what he wanted, but in his (or) her search stumbled across this wonderful message board with it's great wrangler(s) and all the other people that helped that person find just the right camera. If you put up a number 4. That would be me!

#3. He knows what he wants and he's got more money than you think. The trouble is, Pokey gets sidetracked with what's in those bottles. Hick! :-))

Thanks. I think I get it now. Then those plastic bags on his bike are probably cleverly disguised holders of expensive cam gear. He better take it easy on the bottle though. With an MX5 about the size of a coke bottle, he could easily toss one into the recycling bin. hick hick! :)
