My christmas present this year is a new camera. I’ve been lusting over a digital SLR for a while, but the choices and prices were a bit intimidating. But, I recently lost the point and shoot and wanted to replace it before we headed to London. As I was shopping for a replacement point and shoot, Steve pointed out this was the third time we were buying a point and shoot (the first one died) as a placeholder while we decided which SLR we wanted.
Steve helped with some research and the Canon Rebel XS/XSi were highly recommended across the web. So, I bought the camera, 2 lenses (18-55 and 75-300) and stuff to go with it. I am so very pleased. It is amazing and awesome.
Of course, the first set of photos were all of the cats.
Today I went out and took some photos of flowers in the neighborhood. One of them was transformed into the masthead. Other photos are on my flickr page.
I had lots of fun playing with the different settings.
I am so pleased with the camera. I can hardly wait for the vacation so I can take too many pictures of stuff.
