As some of you might know already, Photography is the only real skill that I know and that I think I'm somewhat good at (I think?). And I really need to find a job and stop being completely dependent on my wife's quickly diminishing resources. So why not start trying out as a Photographer? Assistant, Intern, Patreon, whatever I could do, I'll do it.
The first problem with that, and why I'm making this fundraiser is, that my outdated Canon 1000D/XS from 2008 has reached it's shutter click capacity. Meaning, it doesn't work anymore. So, to both continue my hobby and turn it into something bigger, I need the only tool a Photographer needs, a Camera.
I already had a fundraiser not long ago, but it failed to meet it's goal (far from it even). So, this time around I've opted to aim lower. Much much lower. As low as it gets that'll get the job done. A Lower-Entry level Canon 1200D/T5.
Hopefully I'll be able to make it until the sale stands! Here's it on Amazon.com
I calculated the price like this:
Base price (399$) + 13% El Salvador Import Tax (51.87$) + Shipping cost (10$/lb) + IndieGoGo Payment processing fee (3% + 0.30$) + IndieGoGo non-U.S. wire fee (25$), which all grand totals to:
499.9961$ USD, or rounded up to 500$ USD.
Also, my choice is Canon because I already have an extra lense for a Canon camera that isn't really compatible with anything else.
I really hope you guys will help me succeed this time, I'm really counting on to your support.
