Or the start to a beautiful romance as Bitter Purl put it! I got my new digital SLR in the mail yesterday! And I am over the moon about it. I have been decided on a Canon 60D for awhile and finally had the courage to press the buy button. I have been saving for months to buy a new camera after my other SLR’s shutter died. Rather than spend a huge sum to have it replaced, I felt it better to save for awhile and buy a more professional model. I have felt restricted by the XTi for a few years now, more so in this last year, so I am very happy to have a huge upgrade.
Having this new upgrade makes all of my lenses seem new again (and my external flash!). I really feel like I have a whole new set of lenses with this camera. The picture quality is AMAZING compared to my beginner DSLR. The options are everything I wished I had in the other model and more.
I just putzed around and took random photos all day, oooh-ing and ahhh-ing over everyone. I really feel like this is taking my photography to a whole new level that I knew I was capable of. I am very excited to try some more HDR photography with this new camera and will try to find some outdoor spots to give it a try this weekend. In the meantime, here are a few more random pictures to enjoy. Everyone have a great weekend!
(This one is with my external flash.)
By the way, for those of you that asked, there is now a widget at the bottom of my sidebar where you can sign up for email notifications of new blog posts through Feed Burner. Thanks for letting me know you wanted one set up!
