So, I got in my new big-girl camera (Canon T1i) and have just this week been playing with it. I goofed. I ordered the camera online, thinking it came with the kit lens. And it didn’t! I got the camera and was patiently waiting for the other box to arrive, that had the lens, camera case, and some accessories. That 2nd box finally arrived and NO lens.
Uh oh! Went back online to where I had ordered from and discovered that nope, the lens didn’t come with it (I could have sworn I read ALL the fine print on this one). It was still a decent price, but I could have done better ordering the camera and lens together. I did find a good online price for the kit lens and now it is on the way. In the meantime, I had ordered another lens, the 50 mm/1.8 Canon that I had heard great things about and it got here fast, so that is what I’m playing with at the moment.
You know how you try really hard to get the best deal you can get when you’re researching something big like this? I had done that, but I think they must be running some specials for Father’s Day, cause now I’m seeing better deals than what I got. Much better! I’ll tell you about one below.
I’m loving the pics and have walked around the house taking a few snapshots to test it out. Wowza, what a difference I think.
Love the details.
So, we’ve had a cat and now Mr. Chippy getting into the bird feeder. He was so cute, we let him get up there and eat. His little cheeks were bulging by the time he hopped down and ran off.Playing around before we went out to dinner last night. I’ve got SO much to learn about this camera.
But, so far I’m loving the camera and I know it will be plenty for me for a long time. I thought I’d post some pics since some of you are thinking about upgrading to a DSLR too.
After I ordered my camera, I have found even better deals on the Canon T1i than I bought. Like this one here (at $579, that is a steal! 2 days ago it was $649, then went down to the price it is now since then). That link is for the camera AND kit lens and is a great price. If you’re looking for a deal right now, you might want to jump on one of these, it is less than what I paid. Let’s see how long that price lasts!
And no, I don’t get anything for that link, just wanted to pass it on. I wish I had gotten this deal! I think they must change those online prices daily, because it was more when I looked at it the day before and it’s been a month since I ordered mine.
