New Camera

So I have just ordered my new camera! Remember me expressing my extreme frustration when my camera broke before Christmas? I love taking photos and I have been really behind on taking pictures of my son! He's changed SO much since then and I am so happy to say that with the help of my parents... I was able to take advantage of Canon's Loyal Program. Did you know if your camera breaks, and is out of warranty - you can send that camera back to the company and they will send you a refurbished upgrade? You just have to pay the difference. So, I purchased the Canon Rebel XS. It's a great starter DSLR camera. It comes in the kit form, so the lens isn't the best, but will certainly work for everything I need it for. Plus, that will give me something to save up for ;)



Stand tunes, because when this camera does arrive - I will be contining my give aways. I have a few lined up and I hope you like them!

PS - Anyone know how to spell check with this NEW posting set up?

I didn't know there was a new posting set-up. Uh-oh. And I am so SUPER JELEOUS of your new camera. Maybe one day when I get an SLR, you can be my teacher.

Oh I would love to have a new camera too! Right now I just use my Canon point and shoot. That's so exciting that you get to have a new toy to play with! :)

P.S. In the new post editor, I don't believe there is a spell check feature. I remember Kate saying that a while back. Kinda stinks, but I kinda prefer this new editor to the old one.

I have the same camera, I think you'll really like it. I got the
50mm F1.8 lens as an extra and I love it for indoor shots. It is hard to get all three in one picture though since its not a zoon and a wide angle. I do love it for the price...its $99 on amazon. I can't wait to see pics from yours!

I have the same camera and I LOVE IT! I got the 55mm prime lens for Christmas and it is fantastic! Enjoy!

I have the same camera, but the XSi model. You will LOVE it!! Has a 'sports' setting that will be ideal for catching quick shots of Jackson! I also have the 55-250mm lens too!!

Thanks for the info on Canon's loyalty program :-)

There's a new posting setup? I'm still on the old one. Yay for a new camera!! I have plans to get a new one eventually. The sooner the better I say! lol I want to get a Canon. I don't think I'm going to get one with the changeable lenses. Just a fancier point and shoot for me! :)

Of course, if you have any advice on cameras I'm all hears. :)
