New toy


I’ve been thinking about a new camera for some time. I keep wanting more control than a point-and-shoot will allow, so I finally ordered a new one. I’m currently using a loaner lens from our son, while figuring out what I want to get.

It came yesterday, and as soon as the battery was charged, I headed back to the woods to play.

I’ve tried some of the auto features, but probably won’t use them most of the time. The Sports feature does seems to have possibilities for catching a moving dog. πŸ˜‰ We used to do a lot of photography with 35mm SLR’s and several years of point-and-shoot haven’t erased that experience.

  1. I LOVE the picture of the running dog. Toby looks so darned happy! I happen to like the other shots alot. Early spring is beautiful in its own way. That is one cool camera!

  2. *sob* I hate you! I want one of those in the worstest way. I’m trying to convince Texas it would be the best birthday present ever. Hmmmm… maybe I should post a wishlist on my blog. πŸ˜€

  3. Enjoy learning how to use your new toy/tool! I’m a little envious, too!
