I finally treated myself to the long-anticipated and longed for Canon Rebel XSI. I received an offer that I just couldn’t refuse… 15% off the regular price. Awesome!
You probably think that I have too much money to spare, which – I assure you – I don’t… but sometimes you just gotta live, you know?
I had saved up for this baby for a long time and it’s technically my very-belated birthday present, remember?, and not just a spur-of-the-moment-purchase.
Anyways, it’s absolutely amazing to hold this camera in my hands.
I am so in love!
If I only knew what to do with it…
I definitely have to learn a lot to be able to use it to its full potential, but maybe that gets me motivated to take a photography class or something. [Well, scratch the “maybe”, it DEFINITELY motivates me]. I can’t wait.
I spent the weekend just reading the handbook that comes with the camera and trying to get this “mirror-shot” the way I wanted it.
I know some of the terminology of photography already, but still have to figure out which setting does what.
Any tipps and tricks on how to use a DSLR are highly appreciated.
I am sure I’ll soon be longing for more lenses and all those accessories that people warned me about ;)
