Look what I gone done and did.

I hemmed.

I hawed.

I asked the advice of many talented photogs that surround me.

I consulted Consumer Reports, my purchasing bible.

Then I looked around for the best deal. Bit the bullet. Bought it.

It’s smarter than me.

It scares me.

I’m not worthy.

So the only question I ask, is who in tarnation is going to teach me how to use this camera?

Any takers?

    I have the D40 and 60. In a perfect world, I would own the most expensive Nikon imaginable.

  3. Mindy says

    And I watched a few honey badger videos.. best part of my day so far.

    Best book I have read is “Understanding Exposure – 3rd edition” By Bryan Peterson. So many light bulbs went off in my head. It’s also the easiest to read, you won’t get that glazed look. I watched videos online on the Nikon Website. It was super helpful. I’m sure there are tons on the Rebel on the Canon website on how to use all those features you had no idea existed 😉


    My birthday/christmas list goes something like this:

    – 50mm 1.4
    – Fisheye
    – 100mm
    – Tilt-shift 45mm (I’m REALLY dreaming here)
