For Christmas, or maybe just because I’d been asking for one for a long time, Kristin gave me the go ahead to pick up a DSLR camera. I found a really great deal courtesy of slickdeals and was able to make it happen cheaply enough that I didn’t feel super guilty about the investment.
Specifically, I am now the proud owner of a Canon Rebel XS, which is a 10 megapixel camera that you actually need to use the view finder for. It comes with a lens in the normal kit and Amazon is sending me a telephoto lens via USPS that is supposed to be here sometime in January. Of course since it came tonight, I had to unbox it and try it out. Here are some of the pictures I took. Click on them to get the big images. And they are big, I am going to need to figure out how to compress them or something 🙂
Let’s hope that I can someday do the camera justice. I think it is going to be fun trying!
