New camera

Oh La La


I got a new camera and it’s a beast!    It’s heavy, complicated and challenging!  Just what I need!


The Canon 40D.  A “professional” camera!


At 10.1 megapixels it takes huge/beautiful pictures and I also purchase a super new lens, too!  The 24-70mm f/2.8L lens – the super duper lens that everyone who’s anyone recommends.  (I think I read somewhere that the “L” stands for luxury because this is the top of the line for lenses for Canon – or “glass” as pros would call it!)  It weighs a ton – but with the pictures I took tonight to test it out – it was worth every hard earned penny (or thousands of pennies, or hundreds of thousands, but who’s counting?).   It has a 3” screen and a live view mode – just like a point and shoot where you can see the live picture without having to put your eye to the camera. 


So far, I have no buyers remorse, which is odd considering how much I spent on it!  Maybe it’s because this came out of my severance money and after all that trouble – I feel like I deserve a little bit for me….

I don’t know whether it’s the new camera or the new lens or both, but the color that came straight out of the camera is so much better than my old (but still my baby!) Canon Rebel XT.  I think it might have been on the decline after 4-5 years and a good solid ~10,000 pictures taken.  I mean – just look at it – look at the greens, blues and pinks! 


I’m going to be dreaming in color tonight!!!
