It doesn't have to be super expensive

Since I've never gotten the present that was in my wish list last Christmas, I've decided to get it on my own.  I am going to really save for the fuji finepix. I am not a professional but I'm getting good a t snapping photos.  And with the right equipment, I'm sure I'll be able to produce more magnificent photos.  It's a pretty expensive hobby they say, but who needs a very expensive camera when you can get the same quality photo with a not-so expensive device?
