Backyard can be fun. I tend to shoot back there often, since I’ve land and several different perspectives.
I love that I have a potato field to one side, the view of the church on the other, the river just beyond that and the RR Tracks.
So I finally gave in and got a new camera. To most people, that’s not a big thing, for me – its HUGE.
1st, which one do you get? 2nd, how much do I pay? 3rd, what features do I want?
I never have been one to make big purchases, but I put aside a few bucks every week and started researching. It came down between the T5, the T5i, and the SL1 (all Canons as I’ve a great 18-270 lens).
I settled on the T5i, mostly for the sensor review. I ordered it from Abe’s of Maine, out of New Jersey (I don’t ask questions!). I got an email from the company and I had to call them, I found out that the battery life with the normal battery sucks, so I tagged on a purchase of a super sized battery.
My 1st round of taking pictures was a nice sunset along the tracks.
Getting use to a new camera is always a curve. How it feels, the settings, where the buttons are. Thankfully, most cameras are standard, but there is ALWAYS different things you can do. I’ve still got a few kinks to work out!
