or: shameless dslr love
i don’t think i’ve talked about my new toy at all yet! well, it was new a month ago. but that’s still new.
i did a bunch of research a few months ago on dSLR cameras, and then i let it drop… until a friend at work got one for christmas, and i realized i loved it in my hands. i went back to my research and found out the one i considered was the one she had, and was still the one i wanted most of all.
enter, the canon rebel t2i (or 550d).
it came with an 18-55 mm lens, which is a basic, everyday lens. i think people see around 50 mm. but i didn’t stop there. as soon as i went for the purchase, amazon’s “save $89 instantly” disappeared, and was replaced with a “save $100 with the purchase of a second lens.” ok, amazon, twist my arm, why don’t you?
now enter the 75-300 mm telephoto lens. completely unnecessary at the time of my purchase, but really, so was my whole purchase. i waited about a week to unpack it, and then took really worthless shots with it. like my back neighbor’s frill fromt my front door. :-p i played with it for the whole weekend; it was a lot of fun.
we ventured outside for a walk when i was playing with it, but the windchill was 13*F, i believe. so after three shots down the road, i ran away like a baby. it will be so much fun to watch my nephew and nieces play sports now!!! i guess i’ll have to go to more than two soccer games this year.
made by robyn porteen. i love it… and may have used it for weeks as my handbag. i had better photos, but i think they were deleted. i’ll work on it.
currently, i should be in new orleans snapping away to my heart’s content. ciao.
