Got a new big gun
photos: I have some new gear. I broke down and bought a Digital Rebel XT from Henry's on Thursday and I went out and did some shooting today to get used to the thing.
I am going to put quite a few pics through it in different contexts before I go to NFLD. Henry's has a Rebel XT how to class I might take in as part of the purchase to get used to the camera. If one complements the hours I work (or could be working as our hours are changing) I will sign up. The Rebel has taken some great pictures so far, but I want to make sure I am getting the most out of this very cool piece of equipment. And at 8 megapixels, cropping sections out still make some sharp and large sized pics.
It will be a long time before I am instinctive in the manipulation of the controls, but after shooting with it, it was just like having my old Nikon FG SLR back again. :)
I posted some pics to Flickr.
