I'm so, so, so very excited!!!!


That is all.






Ok, no it's not! It's a t1i canon, and I'm hoping santa will bring me the 50mm 1.8 for christmas. I'm still working on learning how to use it, but I've gotten some great shots of baby chub. I wish I knew how to post pics in here.

Woohoo!! I'm jealous -- I'm really starting to notice the difference in quality between my pictures and those of my friends with DSLRs. Have fun taking your beautiful new photos!

The 50mm 1.8 is a great choice. Just don't drop it, it's cheaply constructed. It is s fast and sharp lens. I dropped mine and the glass popped right out. Now I have a 1.4 :) Congratulations. I love my T1 :)
