Happy Sunday to you.
Hmmm my weekend…I made some cards, tore up some cardstock with the Gazelle, killed more cardstock with my new Martha Stewart Punches, errrands, got a mani-pedi, ordered my new camera, went to lunch…errrrrrrr did u see…I got my new camera!! A moment of silence——————————————————————–we may resume our lives!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol I had an appointment this morning so afterwards I decided to swing by…..Best Buy. You know it….I want a new camera NOW!! I am tired of my pictures turning out like my camera took Nyquil!!! Hazy and foggy! I am sure this camera will make me take better pictures……lol. Hail to the gods of CNET they have the best reviews and I have had great success with their recommendations so naturally I went there first. The Canon Rebel EOS T3i is the hot stuff according to the Gods. Then I said to myself, self, you don’t need all the bells and whistles since I am updgrading from a point and shoot to a DSLR,you need to learn on a somewhat basic camera. Its like when you begin sewing you purchase the $79 sewing machine and after a month in you realize you should have purchased the $199 machine. So I didn’t need the lexus but I didn’t want to Toyota Tercel either. So I narrowed it down to a few things I knew I wanted, a Canon recommended for a beginner, a camera with great reviews, ensure that the reviews were form people upgrading from a point and shoot to DSLR, and finally bundling abilities so I can take care of that expensive lens situation. I decided to go with the T2i with a telescopic lens.
BTW Best buy has better pricing in the stores than online….who knew! This search has opened my eyes to a lot. I kept seeing BODY only. What the heck does that mean….a camera with no brain????? No entrails????? Who would by a camera case and why is it still $600!!! Dear gods of CNET please help me to understand. What I didn’t know is the lenses are the most part of your camera. People who have previously owned camera only need the “body” because they already own their lenses. OHHH…see now I am getting it. Well knowing that tidbit about the lens I decided to go with the Canon Rebel EOS T2i bundle. I will also be visiting my library for the the Canon rebel T2i book for dummies :). If you want more information on upgrading from a point or shoot the internet is full of help information. The Daily Digi has an excellent 2 part series Here titled It’s time to buy a camera.
Naturally, you buy an electronic what about all the other stuff, tri-pod, remote, extra batteries, etc I need to be taking my pictures in style. I am certain it will make me look like I know what I am doing! LOL I would not want to riding down street on a Tiffany blue vespa…with my helmet on backward. I don’t even own a camera bag…..ack..kool aid without the sugar. So over the next few weeks I need to discover or make the super fly accessories, like these
and finally a sewing pattern! YAY
