You better tell them...

...that's exactly what my husband said after he read my previous post AND your comments about cameras and wedding presents. Here you go, my husband bought me a new camera as a wedding present! He is away at the moment so he doesn't actually know what I bought. Speaking on the phone to him last night I did mention it was a 'bigger' camera. The response was 'why did you buy a bigger camera?' My reply was 'oh, it's not that much bigger!!' I suppose by now you are getting the drift?

After downloading software, flipping through the manual, watching online tutorials until my eyes are popping out of my head, I still have not taken a photo!  This scenario reminds me of 'are we there yet?'

Graduating from a 'point and shoot' to a 'SLR' digital camera is fascinating really as I want to make the best use of it's features. I realise I will not learn everything before I begin shooting but I am getting impatient now. I will have time in the weekend to get on top if it - so I will be making up for my lack of posting this week for sure. I love posting my own photos to keep my blog as original as I can.

If anyone else has a CANON EOS 500D, any feedback would be appreciated, or if you have a camera story please share.

I'm looking to buy an SLR as well but will be much like you - have no real idea how to use it!

I admire you for moving to an SLR. I am still learning my point and shoot. Can't wait until you take some pictures.

Your blog looks lovely, Came here from Vintage Susie.
