I got a new camera!
Its a Cannon EOS Rebel XS SLR Digital Camera (whew!)
I have just started taking it out of the box and I'm just a little intimidated by it.
(don't worry I'll get over it)
This is definately the nicest camera I've ever gotten.
I've been mightly frustrated with my old camera, it was great when I was just getting started with digital photography but I've been pining for the complete control that I used to have with my old 35mm Nikon, and unwilling to give up the instant gratification that I get with digital.
Plus my old camera ate AA batteries at such a rate I wasafraid the EPA was going to track me down. There were some other problems with it as well: auto flash (I don't like flash), and a skewed viewfinder that made me crazy.
I chose to go for a camera that will let me take the reins when I want to...
Now I just have to figure out how to use it!
