New Camera

My husband surprised me with an early Anniversary present: a new SLR digital camera. YAHOO! Less than 12 hours after taking delivery, I used it for the first time at a local track meet. Getting used to the new operating system; there was no love for the beast. But halfway through the meet I was able to trial and error my way into a few shots.

I'm feeling the love.

Thanks. It's a totally new system, but I'm getting the hang of it.

What did you get?

Canon 50D My usual settings for shooting a track event were too slow everything was a blur which can be fun... but no.

I used the manual settings and got close to what I wanted. I'll have more opportunity to play and shot this week.

I am finding this camera has a lot more flexibility over my old 10D which will get fixed.
