I finally bought a dslr (i.e. fancy) camera. No more point and shoot on automatic for me. I am committed to learning the manual mode and to taking better photos!
I ordered last year’s Canon model – the Canon EOS T1i Rebel. I sure hope I made a good choice. It was that or the Nikon D3100 and price swayed me. With the package, I got:
- Lens shown above
- A 4 hour battery and a 6 hour battery
- External charger
- 8 GB Ultra High Speed No Error SD Card
- Table top tripod (was a bonus gift)
- Cleaner Kit
Does that sound adequate for right out of the gate?
I also still need a camera bag for it. I’m very open to any tips, advice, etc for how to use the camera, what lenses (not too expensive please) that I may need for interior shots, and so on. I am pretty clueless.
I’m hoping I learn to use it well and that it pays off with better blog photos and family/ travel photos.
Wish me luck!
