I have never really owned a good camera. Mostly because I don’t really know how to use one, and so the price for a good camera would be a little wasted on me. But I got a great deal on a Cannon Rebel, which has a great reputation os a good choice for beginning camera people.
I have to admit that I still don’t know how to use half the features, but that doesn’t seem to stop me from taking much better pictures already. I just uploaded some to my Flickr account below. You should be able to tell where the Cannon stops and my cheap Sony point and shoot begin.
Right now I just have it set on AF mode, but I want to start playing with the ISO and other settings. And I guess I should learn how to properly use other lenses at some point. But for now, it’s working pretty good for what I wanted. Plus it look a lot cooler than the small Sony.
I also downloaded Aperture, but that looks even more complicated than the camera. I’m hoping to learn how to use both eventually. I travel a lot, so it would be nice to be able to take better pictures when I go to new places.
