My camera hobby has gotten out of hand. It’s like a gambling addiction. If I just bought one more lottery ticket kind of seems like if I could just have this camera or lens. I still love my Canon Rebel T1i and the used Canon 50D I bought last year. I wanted a full frame Canon. The 5D Mark iii just came out, but it is too pricey for me so I am going with the Canon 5D Mark ii.
I like to order from BH Photo. I think they have great customer service and prices. I did play with one a couple of months ago at Best Buy. The controls seem pretty much like my 50D so that will make things easy.
I also ordered a Black Rapid camera strap. It makes carrying and using your camera easier. I am going to take pics for my friends sister’s wedding reception this summer and thought it would be helpful. I ordered the classic strap.
I will let you know if I think it is worth buying after I try it out.
I should be experimenting by next weekend. I can’t wait. I hope my first family photo I get to take with my new camera is of my friend since the 2nd grade (about 35 years ago) and al of her family. The doctor is 99% sure her melanoma has metastasized. We will know more in a week or so. Metastasized melanoma is not a good thing and difficult to treat. Her dad was just diagnosed a few days later with colon cancer as well. I grew up with this family and they mean the world to me. Please pray for them. Thank you.
