Mom’s New Toy Means I Can’t Resist Posting

Life is strange. First I felt violated. Then I felt relieved. Now I’m just over it and ready to move on. Welcome back to Got My Reservations: The Retirement Sequel.

I have spent a lot of time in the last couple of months with friends who have much more knowledge than I do about cameras. I bought the Canon EOS Rebel T3i, and I’m thrilled with the results so far. Ten minutes out of the box and I had 24 photos that were better than anything I’ve taken recently — although I’ve done some pretty good work with my iPhone in Instagram. 🙂

Here’s today’s teaser.

The next step is to figure out which totally cute camera bag I’m going to buy from Judy at Snugglens.

  1. Thanks for this info on your new camera — congratulations! I’ve been doing a little investigating into an SLR but was very confused by the options. The Rebel is good? Workable for a camera amateur?

    • So far this camera is wonderfully intuitive. I just went to the local camera store and got a bag and a UV filter. I took a lot of photos of faces today; I’m interested to see how the camera fares with people rather than flowers!

  2. Have fun with your new toy. Your first shot is a winner and I look forward to many more. I love my Nikon CoolPix basic model which I received from my husband as a Christmas present a couple of years ago (after strong hints from me). It takes amazing pictures with little effort.

    Keep up the good work–I enjoy your blog.
