The reason I'm doing this because I was looking at the image quality of the photos I took. Most of the time, turning on flash will increase the quality tenfold. If I don't turn it on, the pictures will turn out blurry. The downside of using flash is that it uses too much of the battery's life and sometimes, the flash reflects and makes glare in the photo.
I have to work part time at the family restaurant and get some cash before Anime Expo and invest in a new camera that's energy efficient, cheap (around 100-500 dollars), and produces good quality photos.
My old cameras:
The Nikon one I had it since 9th grade. It was a gift from Uncle who notice our family still uses those cameras with negative film in them. I was pretty much in charge of family photos.
The Canon one was actually a used camera left in the lost and found at the family restaurant. My uncle gave it to me after no one claimed it after 3-5 months. We usually donate the items to Good Will or Salvation army because most items we get are clothes are left behind. Rarely, we get electronic items. The camera was way better than the Nikon one, but it wasn't taken good care by the previous owner. The viewing screen was dirty, and dust got inside of it. I couldn't clean the inside of the camera without breaking inside the device.
