I picked up my new (to me, used by someone else,) SLR camera the other day. It's a Canon EOS Digital Rebel 300D & it came will all kinds of extras. My current digital point & shoot's a Canon, too, so things are already slightly familiar. Of course, there are PLENTY of differences with this unit, so I've ordered an instructional DVD (which will certainly be as helpful as the one I'd purchased for my PowerShot.) Took a few shots out the backdoor today;
You don't realize how much you've missed a telephoto lens until you have one again. 4x optical zoom just ISN'T enough! I can already tell I'm going to love this camera, & I barely even know it's functions yet!
In other news, tomorrow I'll be selling my art (with others,) on the grounds of the Berkeley Gallery & Studio here in Abita Springs again, from 9am 'til 2pm. Stop by, say "hi" & take full advantage of my recession/holiday-slashed prices!
