I was packing my suitcase and I found my old camera! Back in March, I accidently got some sand in to the lense and the camera stopped working, but yesterday, I went to turn it on for old time's sake, and it worked! It's already an old 12 mega-pixel camera, but I've had so many adventures with it that I feel I can't just throw it away so easily.

But....I've also been eyeing a certain Nikon camera for a while now, but it's still 45000円 and only 10 megapixels, which is less than what my camera now is... But this camera is still a best seller, so despite the low MPX it must be good....  Maybe when I finally reach my goal weight, I'll buy this for myself! 

I went to a haunted house event with my friend and it was really fun! I screamed alot, my throat started hurting and now I've lost my voice but I feel satisfied, lol. We didn't have time to go in to all six houses, but the three that we went to were fairly scary, so we didn't mind that we didn't get to see everything. I had wanted to take a lot of pictures, but I was always running from some kind of zombie or monster, so I couldn't really take any pictures (Unless you include all the blurs and finger shots! lol)  
友達と一緒にお化け屋敷へ行って来て、すごく楽しかったです!悲鳴を上げ過ぎて、喉が痛く、声が出せないんですけど、満足な気持ちがあります(笑) 全部の6軒のお化け屋敷に入るには時間が足りませんでした。でも、3軒の入った場所はかなり怖かったので、全部のお化け屋敷に入られなくても気になりません。たくさん写真を撮りたかったけど、いつもお化けから逃げていたし、写真が撮れませんでした(笑)

Before the event started, we got to preview the Christmas event. The event starts next month and lasts until December, so I probably have time to visit it before I go back to Japan soon!

Megapixels aren't really what matters with a camera. How often are you really using the whole 12 Megapixels? The size of the sensor is a lot more important, as well as the lense. Oh, and you have a typo in the price for the Nikon 1 in the English version. ^^" (I'd personally go for a full 一眼レフ if I was going to spend the money anways)

I know nothing about cameras, really, so it would be best to do more research before I buy anything. I don't really know what you mean about sensors and things like that.

Haha, yeah, I fixed it. I tend to get wild with my 0's.

Nikon's are great camera's so I can understand why the one you're looking at is popular. They are a bit pricey but it's because the quality is so much better than others.

I want to go to a haunted house this year since I missed doing so last year. I doubt that I would do much better with avoiding blurry pictures and thumb shots since I'm a bit jumpy but a good scare can be fun in the right environment.

Someone told me it's not about the pixels, but about the sensor and what-not. I really need to do some more research on the camera I want before I do anything. If the quality really is a whole lot better, I'll definitely save up for it.

I'm not the type to scare easily, but I seriously spent quite a bit of time running from things that charged at me lol. Like the white ghoul-thing I took a picture of, he charged me as soon as he saw I was taking a picture! So in another shot, all you see his his hands coming near and my finger lol.

Well it isn't really about the pixels. I just prefer Nikon and Canon because they're well made and high quality. Still have one of the old 35mm cameras and it works like a charm. It is a good idea to shop around and make sure you get exactly what you want.

Darkness doesn't scare me and masks don't scare me but loud noises and sudden movement always get me. I could know that it's coming and I still jump. ^^;

I've been through quite a bit, so I tend to be quite paranoid. I'm always looking around from the corners of my eyes, and then when I see something from the corners of my eyes, I can't see it clearly, get scared, and run off anyway. Hehe.
I'm like the best person to take to a haunted house if you're looking to laugh at someone.

That is a seriously snazzy camera from Nikon, am liking the look of it but the real truth would be would it be as good or better than the one you currently own? Any way you'd be able to test it out?

Great haunted houses, we have this one in Aucklnad that is supposedly really scary but I've never been on it but I've heard many great things about it, I think theres also some sort of cornfield or something that you walk through or something..

I will not walk through a corn field. Never. That's too creepy. Of course I'm only talking about when it's used in relation to Halloween! It just seems too creepy.

A store near by might have that same one, I'll have to stop by and check. Hopefully I won't buy it as soon as I have it in my hands. I am honestly in love with the look.

I ran from like every single clown. They had this one room where it's nothing but clowns and you couldn't tell who was real and what was just a mannequin. Crazy.

i am sorry, but i always have to laugh at the ridiculous myth that is: the more megapixels = the better quality. You would be surprised if i say that if your only purpose of owing a camera is to take holiday photos, post them in your lj and on a rare occasion print them - a 4 megapixel camera is already more than enough. Megapixels don't affect the quality of your photo unless you are a badass photography pro with a studio that prints billboards.
What is important in a camera is its features. The engineering behind the camera, the sensor, the ability of the device to capture light photons. Some professional cameras, like Canon 400D have only 10MP. But quality wise it can wipe the asses of all point-and-shot cameras even if you put a sticker on it that it has 2495353359 megapixels.
sorry for this long comment on megapixels, but i am a tech geek -_-

waaaaaaaaaaa~~~~but a haunted house!!! that must have been so cool!!! Thou, the photo of the clown really does scare me O_o" and lol the eye in the flower. I hope nobody peed in their pants, cause i know i would 8D

I know nothing about cameras, haha. As I said, I was really only attracted to this one because it's beautiful! But actually, I don't "on a rare occasion print." I print ALL of my pictures from my vacations. I have like a million photo albums. It's ridiculous lol. So I assumed more pixels=Better prints.
No worries about the long comment. I appreciate the information before I spend so much money! =D

omg it is so rare for people to print photos nowadays! o,o
the megapixel count will matter only if you print really large prints. But to put into a photo album, as i mentioned, 4 megapixels are more than enough.

i don't know about that particular model, but Nikon cameras are overall really good, be it a pro camera or a point-and-shot!

I know! Everyone says that! But I love to print them and keep them in albums. When I'm feeling down, I look at them. It doesn't feel the same as looking at them on the computer.

I don't know anything about cameras myself so I'm watching the comments on this post with some interest, haha! :p

I'm glad you had a good time though! It all looks really great. The flower with the eyeball in it is awesome!

So far, I've only learned that pixels don't matter. Lol. I've spent all my life buying according to that, and turns out it doesn't mean a thing!

Yeah! It's nice, isn't it? They had this garden filled with many flowers like this, but some goblin thing tried to run me down, so I didn't have a chance to snap a picture.

I've always wanted to buy myself a camera but I use my phone for everything... But it's great that you found your old camera! :D

Haunted Houses are so fun! I'm really hoping I'll be able to go to my City's one this year. But no one ever wants to go with me, and it's not fun going alone.

I think I use my cellphone and my camera equally, but when I go out with the intention of taking pictures, I like to have a camera. Flash can be useful, and my phone doesn't have that.

Oh, yeah, you'd be crazy to go alone! Omg.

Glad to hear you got your old camera to work again! ^____^

Ghost houses can be fun. I have yet to experience one in Japan, though. Usually I run into them when I'm alone and they're no fun if you're alone, right? ^^

I've never gone to one in Japan. My friends have always tried to drag me to them, but with my luck they are always closed =D. I would imagine they would be more terrifying than fun if you were to go in alone.

OMG, is that a zombie clown or something in that one picture. SCARY...though reminiscent of Zombieland if it was. That's awesome you found your old camera and that it worked! Though, not gonna lie, that Nikon looks flashy. Haha.

I Knooooooow. The Nikon looks so good >< So I'm scared to go to the store and pick it up out of fear of buying it on the spot, lol.

Yeah, zombie clown. Actually, I can't lie. My friend took this picture because she was the one gutsy enough to stop and snap while I hauled my butt through the house lol. I thought he was going to launch himself at us from his chair! Eck!

Yeah, my father always says that newer technology is more delicate than old products, and he's right. I want older technology that won't break after two days >.<

your dad is right, nowaday so many new things break after short time.. like laptop.. many people have to change them after 1-2 years.... =__=
I have MP4 player, it has hmm..4-5 years and it still works perfect.. <3




"An ugly duckling growing out of her feathers."

Hello. I'm Zia, and this is most obviously my journal. I write about my life between Japan and the US, and all the adventures I find myself in. People often say they are envious of the life I seem to live, but the truth is, I feel a little unsatisfied with it myself, so I've decided to do something about it--to find what really makes me happy. Hopefully by documenting my life, I can figure out where I need to be heading. This journal is my way of opening my world to those around me in hopes of meeting people searching for the same thing or encountering people who have already gone through this kind of struggle. 

Back in my high school days, I used to be a bit of a nerd. I was really in to comic books of all kinds, action figures...all that jazz.  These days, though my interest in comic books re-surfaces every so often, I'm very much more in to things like fashion, dance, music, travel, tea, baking, writing letters, photography, animals and fitness. I'm a straight shooter--meaning I do not (or rather, can not?) lie. Keeping up with lies is too much trouble. 

Anyway, there is more information about me on my profile. Feel free to take a look there or catch me on another site★
