My Precioussssssssssssssss

I'm now the proud owner of this baby. Woo hoo! I bought it second hand, only 7 months old, in mint condition and with a heap of extras thrown in for free, for a great price from one of the guys I met through the Flickr Sydney Photobloggers group. He's only selling because he's upgrading to something with more bells and whistles.

I'm loving doing more photography these days, and the idea of being able to do more than just point & shoot is very exciting. (Not that I'm not a fan of the odd point & shoot. Are ya with me? Eh? Does your wife like photos? Eh?... Eh?... Know what I mean?)

Anyhoo. New camera! Sweet.

Mazel tov on the new toy! I look forward to seeing the fruits of your labors with your new tool. I have no idea what any of that means.

Me, I'm a one-button man. Too many knobs and I get intimidated.

I have heard that about you.

I'm all about the tool. My dad always used to say "A bad workman always blames his tool", but I think that statement can be used for most men really.

Nice, well you are braver than me :) even though i know there is the capacity to take better pics the thought of having to learn how to another still puts me off (even one knob/button is truly too many lol). You are definitely flying along with being technologically literate these days - no more shy guy.

"A bad workman always blames his tool" although i was of the impression that most men overestimate the capacity/size of their tool...

So what I should worry you about cock shots? Oy!

I'm with Michael--too many knobs and I'm lost in the woods. Thankfully I know how to pitch a tent.

Well,

Glad to hear it... welcome to the world of SLR. It is a strange new world that involves lots of challenges, a few tears and some great joy.

The only advice I can give you is the green setting is for whimps... get out and play with the other settings!

Oh my, what a big lens you have ...

PS. Mikey, sweetie there can never be too many knobs.
