I got it!! Yay!!!
Thank you SO much Julie, Rebecca, and everyone else who helped me pick out a new camera. After reviewing everything I learned from you and reading lots of reviews I decided to go with Wal-Mart’s Black Friday special: the Canon EOS Rebel XS with the EF-S 18-55mm lens. This year was the first in the last several that I actually didn’t go out shopping on Black Friday. Wal-Mart let me buy the special online on Thursday night, with free shipping. The price wasn’t that low except it included a nice camera bag, memory card, and tutorial DVD.
It came in the mail yesterday. I tried it out for the first time this morning. I used the full auto mode and touched these up a little bit in Picasa. Here’s a sample of what I got…
The first shot was of Maci. Predictable, I know.
You can see the hairs on this soybean!
This one is my favorite… on the hood of my truck.
The barnyard in the morning.
I’m more than happy with these first shots, especially considering I’m such a beginner. I think this camera is going to make it a lot easier to get posts up when I don’t feel like writing a lot.
What’s your favorite thing to photograph?
