New toy! ^^

I have a new *toooooyyyyy*... *sings* ^^

Having saved enough money (and gotten some for Xmas), I went and bought this.

It got here yesterday, but I was away until this afternoon.

Then I got to unpack and paw over all my new shinies. ;)

And I went out into the bitter, bitter cold (it's around -12°C at the moment - that's about 10°F) and took my first pictures, to get a feel for the camera and the lenses.

I still have a few things that I need to work out, but on the whole I was rather pleased with the result.

If you want to go look, you can see them here. ^^ (subliminal message: "you want to go look at Raven's pics, you want to go look at Raven's pics..." *gg*)

Of *course* I'm terribly proud of my new toy! What did *you* think? ;);)

I love the pictures! Acrobat cat is particularly awesome, because, you know, acrobat cat. 'nuff said. XD

New toys FTW!

Thank you! Puntino is *such* an idiot sometimes. If he sees me coming, he'll race up the tree and then climb out to the farthest ends, just so he can try to grab my hair or hat from above. ^^

Crazy cat. ^^

New toys are *sooo* much fun... :)

*gg*

Oh no, I'm not giving up my old SLR either! It's been with me for almost 30 years and has always done what I've asked of it, no matter the circumstances. I can already see myself travelling with *two* camera bags around my neck. ^^

That sounds like a good idea - though they probably won't let you on the plane anymore if you're carrying overweight in cameras... ;)

I'm just working my way through all the buttons and menues and settings on mine. I think this might take a while... :)

Wow... our little cheapy digital camera just crawled behind the couch and hid in shame! ^o^ That thing takes some really great pictures! And you got some great shots... that frozen gate is awesome!

*coaxes your camera back out from behind the couch*

It's all a matter of perspective. The right camera for the right person and use. One day I'd like to be what's called an 'amateur professional'. So Big New Shiny Camera toy is just right for me.

You probably only want to be able to capture memories - not art - so little camera is just perfect. ^^

I have more pics coming... :)

Oh, this camera isn't even all that great just for the general day to day snap-shot thing, it's WAY old and the guality of the pics is... sad. Hell; I've seen people post things from their darn CELL PHONES that's higher quality than this old thing. Really need to look into a slightly newer model one of these days.
And you could totally do professional art photography... you've definately got the eye for it. ^_____^

Hm... the new, small digital cameras are quite good, too! And not difficult to use. *And* mostly not very expensive... I love having a camera to help me make memories - especially of my cats and my daughter - that I can keep. :)

*blush*

I don't think I could work professionally. I don't know enough...
