which should i buy? a pair of used, but great condition, 18-30" durastilts, or a new Casio EX-Z40 4mp 3x optical digital camera?

if i get the camera, it'll be in my hands tomorrow, and if i get the stilts, it would be the 4th of november. (not nearly in time for costume parties)

and i guess it's getting rather cold for stilt walking, but it would give me plenty of time to practice before burning man. not to mention i could probably get a couple more clowning/party gigs if i were even more unique ;]

but my Sigma SLR is in new york for warranty repair, and the price is very right on that digital...

i have to decide within 12 hours. i guess it's between, do i want instant gratification, or can i wait? and do i want to be behind cameras or infront of them?

help me out =]

Lights dancing off my skin as chains wrap round it.
Pain is in a little box and I'm so glad I found it.

I'd save up more and buy a digital SLR.
I use my camera every few days. There were a pair of Duras in my house for months and I never used them. But then again I'm already 6'6".

I love my durastilts but must admit I don't use them as much as I'd like. I think you'll have much more fun with a camera.

Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.

well, i bought the stilts.

for two reasons, first, i already have a damned decent camera, it's just in new york at the moment, and second, because the guy who was going to sell me the camera flaked out =P

well, all's well that ends well, i suppose. =]
