My generous husband has gotten me a DSLR for Christmas! And it has arrived!
Oh, I can't wait to play...well, play more...had a go this afternoon for a bit. Truly a fun and amazing camera! There is alot to play with, but there are "full auto" modes too, to help with the learning curve.
A little story about the power of this camera...
We've had no sunlight today, it's just a cold, windy, dark day here. So, I didn't get in any photos of the sketches I did this morning. But, tonight I thought I'd just try the Rebel and see what happens. So, sans tripod, and unable to turn off the flash (not that far into the manual yet), I propped up the sketchbook and took a quick photo. The image required much less tweaking than when I have the point-and-shoot with tripod and the flash turned off - it was incredible!
Anyway, I am so thrilled with this camera and the possibilities that lie ahead. Below is the darling man himself, being superdad this morning (putting off his own agenda because his late-rising son wanted company at breakfast.) We are a blessed family to have such a great man!
