I like the ease of use with dies - and I have a cuttlebug and big shot pro, but the dies are very expensive and the intricate ones that I really like tend to be a bit "fussy" to cut.

On the other hand, I love the features of the cameo and that it can cut heavyweight paper, do lots of 3D items and the "dies" are electronic - no storage issues. But the price!! It's not in my budget at this point.

So - this got me thinking - what is the future of all those die making companies - Spellbinders and CHeery Lyn for example? They are wonderful companies but will they be around once the electronic machines come down in price (they will come down eventually).
My experience with the Cameo is that it will not cut heavy weight cardstock. I had a gazelle I was going to sell once I got the Cameo and was not able to after I had difficulty cutting 80 lb cardstock with it. I use it for print and cut with 65lb cs and that is about all.

Electronic dies cutters will not replace my manual dies. I see a place for them both.
