A week ago I got my tax papers back. It was a nervouse moment when I checked my taxes online, would I get money back or not? I had a feeling I would get some back, but had no idea how much. To my big surprise I got a pretty nice chunk of money back. I had promised myself, that if I got enough money back on my taxes I would buy myself a new camera.
For a long time I’ve been drooling over the Canon 7D. It has been high on my wishlist among other things like travelling, photo printer/scanner, a Holga, lots of new scrapping stuff, a bunch of new clothes etc. I debated weather using my money on various of things or on that ONE item. Guess who won? Yep. You’ve guessed right, the Canon 7D! You should’ve seen me in the photo store on friday evening. I walked around in the shop, looking at various cameras and lenses, before I went and got a ‘queue ticket’ (or what it’s called…). Even though I really wanted the camera, it’s still a bit scary using that much amount of money at one time. So I kinda had to man up, before I bought it.
Now that I’ve had the camera for few days, I can’t say I regret it. It’s awesome. It got 18 megapixles, ISO up to 12800, filming in full HD, 19 AF points to mention a few things. I haven’t been able to go on a long photo trip with it yet, but I’ve managed to test it out.
On sunday, it was really sunny outside. I was back home for a day and a half and got the chance to go out to shoot some. It’s the very end of winter and in really early stage of spring. The snow is gone, but it’s not very green outside yet. Well, even though it wasn’t green outside, at least it was really sunny. The sky was blue and I got a few photos. Here they are, along with the photo on top.
This coming weekend, I hope to get out on a long photowalk. I need to test it out more, and soon! I’ve already planned where to go. Hopefully you will be able to see some more photographes taken with my new camera soon!
