So I'm taking a photojournalism class this semester, and the professor *strongly* recommended we invest in our own DSLR cameras. Which is HOLY JEEBUS THAT'S A LOTTA MONEY. Ack!
But I took as many side babysitting jobs as I could to save up, and stalked Amazon and a few other sites looking for major DSLR sales all summer, and finally in early August: JACKPOT. A Canon Rebel XS, refurbished, with a 90-day warranty, at a seriously reasonable price. Boom. Love.
Here's my new baby...
Now if only I could figure out all these fancy-pants buttons. I guess that means I should *SIGH* RTFM, as my dad would say.
(RTFM = READ THE FREAKIN' MANUAL. You have to read that with an exasperated voice, by the way.)
