    Which one?

    1) Sony DCR DVD108 Handycam Camcorder
    [​IMG]


    2) Zune 30GB Black MP3 Player
    [​IMG]


    3) Diesel Men's Zach Paper Shoe
    [​IMG]



    Here's the deal...

    If i buy the camcorder, i can't get anything else. If i buy the MP3 player, i can get the shoes as well... but I don't know if I want the mp3 player... and i don't know if I need the camcorder.

    Should I even buy anything at all?

    Well, I don't know EXACTLY what shoes I'm going to buy if I do get new shoes... but I'm sort of intrigued by the Diesel line... just too much of a... you know what to fork over $70-100 for shoes :/

    who cares which would make you look 'cooler'?

    just be yourself and do what you want/like

    ^^

    Well, the real question is: Should I even spend the money for some of this stuff? I don't know!

    It's about $500 after all is said and done for the camcorder... and $250 for the MP3 player + headphones...

    I do have the money for it, but I don't know if I should be holding on to this money for college or if I should spend it now... :/

    i just bought some diesel shoes so i'd vote for that.

    i'd never use a camcorder (i don't think so anyways) and i have an ipod...

    See, there's no need for any of the stuff listed... except for the shoes. I think I'm definatley buying the shoes no matter what.

    The MP3 player would just be nice to have for workout sessions/work/stuffs.

    The video camera would be cool to experiement with and work on my video editing skills. (Computer Engineer Major... i like playing with technology)

    here's what i do to prevent too many impulse buys (which i'm prone to):

    If i dont absolutely need it and know it's something I just really want, I'll sit on it for 2 weeks. If I still find myself wanting it just as much 2 weeks later and the price is right, I'll get it. Most of the time though, I'll find that my fervor for the item is long gone and that it would have just ended up sitting on my shelf collecting dust

    I have adobe premiere on my desktop, but my laptop for school doesn't have anything right now. I'm going to get whatever I need to do the editing I want to, so ^.^

    I just want to make sure that I'm making the right decision if I buy the video camera...

    I'm probably going to buy something tonight... because I've waited way to long to buy stuff for myself.

    Then again, this year alone i've bought myself a keyboard... 2 new pairs of jeans... and now a video camera.

    I think i might be going overboard! I've spent more money on myself this summer than I have in the last 5 years. Is that bad?

    Yeah, I hope to use my degree to work with video editing/compression and acoustics. Though... I don't know how well that will go over.

    i'd go with 2 & 3. if for no other reason than carrying a video camera around will make you look like a tourist

    probably the camcorder. dunno about you, but i spend 2-3 minutes walking out on the street max, so thats like 1 song on the zune. it would look pretty nerdy having to take out and put away your headphones every 3 minutes. And diesels are pretty much out of style.

    Very Funny...

    They will come :) The dorm I will be in next semester has a gym in it, so I'm going to check that out. If not, there are 2 other gyms that are free to students so I will be using them with one of my friends. I'll get him into a decent routine. I've been lurking in F&A to pick up some good all body work out routines.



    I was looking at the camcorders... and I am going to buy one. I keep saying "tomorrow i'll do this" or "tonight I'll do that..." Don't listen because I never keep my word. But i will be buying a camcorder soon.

    30GB camcorder? beh, waste of money. They compress the video so that it fits on the harddrive, and if I wanted to edit it, it'd be like making a bad video worse :(

    DVD is the only one that has the least compression... so I'll be getting that.

    It's either going to be a SONY DCR DVD108(or DVD308) or the CANON DC210. We'll see what happens tonight.

    I didn't even know they were ever in style.

    Changed my mind about the camcorder.

    I WILL be purchasing a Panasonic PV-GS80 ($250). :)

    zune sucks, shoes are ugly, and camcorders are not cool. sorry to be so negative.

    least worst of them are the shoes.
