New Digital Camera

I took the digital camera plunge three years ago shortly after my daughter was born. Vicky and I figured, correctly, that we would save piles of cash by taking digital pictures and only getting prints of the ones we really liked. At the time we purchased a Kodak DX3900 3.1 Megapixel point-and-shoot style camera. It has served us well and continues to do so today.

Now I love photography. During my junior year of high school I began a photography course that was cut short by my family’s abrupt move from Colorado to Michigan (that’s another story) but this little taste had me hooked. In 1988 I purchased an early model Canon EOS Rebel which, for the lay person, is an excellent camera as it has both fully automatic as well as fully manual options.

When Canon announced the release of the EOS 300D / Digital Rebel last year I began a campaign to convince Vicky that I must have one. I am happy to report that the campaign has ended in success and I am now the proud owner of a new 6.3 Megapixel Canon EOS 300D / Digital Rebel! I am still getting used to it but here are a couple of shots taken on Friday at Coons Corners, PA, a stop on my return trip from Syracuse.
