Broken Camera

I have to say that my Sony Mavica has finally given up on me. I tried taking pictures with it over the weekend and while it would take the least I thought it did, it wouldn't load them up to my laptop. UGH! It also had that sickening burnt electronic smell when I open the door to the disk drive to take out the mini disc. Although I guess I can't complain as I had this digital camera for 9 years.

We have been looking or should I say, I've been drooling over a new DSLR camera. I've been looking at Canon's as that's the kind of SLR camera I have along with a few lenses. So I was looking for a camera that I could use these lenses with.

After getting a recommendation from a photographer that has been my neighbor at one of the craftshows that I do, he recommended a Canon 50D. Well looking at the 50D I decided it may be more camera than I really need. So after more research, we settled on an Canon Eos XT1. It's been ordered and now to wait for it to arrive.

I feel so lost without my camera now. I have so many new signs and things that I have painted to take a picture to show and list, that I'm busting at the seams here!
So hopefully sometime by the middle of next week, I'll be back to taking pictures. In the meantime, I guess it's back to work for me. So til next week take care.

  1. So it's really dead and gone? Just think of all the wonderful photos you can take next week with with the shiny new camera.
