A new camera in my life…

For three years I have been shooting with a rebel xsi–a camera which I love and adore– recently however I felt that I have been out growing its ability. While it is a good camera I felt that I was limited by its functions. I still love my XSI it is the camera that taught me all I know. Back to the camera search… I originally planned only to look, but before I knew it I was sliding my card and was the owner of a new 50D. I was originally planning to buy the 7D around January; however, I bought the 50D instead with two reasons in mind. One it is over 700 dollars cheapers, and two it is a big jump from my 50D. While the 7D is a better camera the 50D suits my needs just perfectly. Also I bought the 4-year-ADH from Best Buy, so if it breaks its all good, and I can even upgrade. I don’t care what consumer reports studies say, I think that protection plans do pay off on certian products.

I really am still in shock that I bought this. I really am not the type to splurge on such a big purchaes but I don’t regret it at all. I already love the quality of the images I can get with the 50D, and I love the lens that it came with. The build is so amazing it feels like a camera, as weird as that sounds. I can’t wait to take it out and shoot something outside of my house!

Here are some of the first pictures I took. I’m not particularly thrilled with any of them, but with time I’m sure I’ll get the hang of the fuctions. It’s weird the exact same settings on my XSI takes a completly different photo from my new 50D.

I took this picture right here for my mom… This is Saint Padre Pio:
