I have a new camera!
My dslr is a 5 year old model, ancient in digital cameras time. It is a good, solid camera, but it was time to get another one, one with video capability. I got my new baby on Monday, but it wasn’t until Tuesday that I had a chance to use it. With a new, very modern camera comes the reminder that more resolution only makes bigger pictures, not better pictures. I am still the same lousy photographer I was on Sunday.
I really didn’t have much time to do anything with it. Bummer. There is also the fact that with each new camera changes are made to the position of buttons, menus change, functions change. The basics still remains the same, but there is a learning curve (and probably some cussing).
Video is not my medium, but I will learn. I haven’t even tried to figure where to switch on the video mode is yet. I suppose I’ll have an idea when I finish reading the 300 page-long manual.
The only bad thing about the new camera is that it is significantly heavier than my old one. Not a good thing for when I am traveling, as I usually lug around all my lenses and a couple of flashes with me. Next time I’ll leave some of that stuff at home before I get a herniated disk or something.
So there, I was going to post something else today, but I am giddy today, like a girl with a new camera.
What camera do you have? It’ll be interesting to know what people do with what they have.
