the 7D has arrived

A big parcel came today. And it's an exciting parcel. We've been tossing up whether or not to buy a fancy schmancy camera for months now and we've finally done it. Baby Batman has been an encouraging factor in the mix, we really want to have great photos and videos of our kids, and all sorts of other fun things, and this camera does both - REALLY WELL.

And it arrived in good timing, about a week before we head to New Zealand and Melbourne for a holiday - which will give me plenty of time and opportunities to properly work out how to use the fancy thing. And it means that we can claim back our tax at the airport when we leave the country (yipppee).

I'm excited to learn more about photography, as I do really enjoy it. And now that I've downloaded the instruction booklet in English (thanks for sending us a Japanese one guys, its only mildly unhelpful!) I can begin to sift through all the millions of settings and controls. Its going to be such fun. I've already started planning a few projects, parties and functions that I can photograph. Practice practice practice (i'm a massive fan of teaching myself things - so this will be great) Yipppeee!

  1. how exciting! I have been wondering about who to ask to take some nice photos at my biffy, so if you're keen to practice I'd be happy for you to do so ;)
    Hope you're putting your feet up and hurry up with getting better x
