Well, today before we left Abq, Stu and I headed over to a camera shop to check out the camera that I “got” for Christmas. Well, we knew we were going to eventually get it, but we really wanted to hold it in our hands before committing to buying it. It’s nice to know what you’re getting before you order something. Wow, the camera was awesome! It just “felt” like a real camera you know? This shop was the only place in Abq that we found even had the thing in stock. Everyone else told us they could order it… seems kind of pointless when you can just do that on your own. Anyway, after checking it out we were more convinced than ever that THIS was the camera for us. That conclusion come to we couldn’t just leave it there so we came home with a brand new ‘baby.’ Ha ha ha!! But really for what we spent we got a spankin’ good deal, but for what we spent, we’ll be taking VERY good care of this camera. It’s a Nikon D300. We got the body and a 18-135 lense. Okay, to be honest, I don’t totally understand what all those numbers stand for, but I am ready to be educated. Picture takin’ has been a pastime hobby for me for several years, but my little digital camera really wasn’t performing as I’d like. Now I HAVE to learn all the cool tech stuff because this camera can more than perform!!! I’m so excited about getting some great shots! Don’t worry, I’ll let you all in on the fun by posting some of them to my blog. That’s all for now folks. I just wanted you to know that Christmas came again to our house!
