New Camera!

I’m sooooo excited! I got a new camera!!!!!! A Canon 5D!!!!!!! (Yep, I made the switch from Nikon to Canon!) I have been WANTING this camera for at least a year and now that it’s sitting here on the table next to me, I have to pinch myself every so often because it’s seriously a dream come true for me! I played around with it today and wow, the full frame sensor is incredible! I can see, I can see! I’m trying to memorize where all the buttons are, menu options, and don’t even ask me how to use my new Canon 430EX speedlight flash – OMG that thing confuses me! (My old Nikon SB400 had an on/off button – that’s it!) My new 430EX flash has all sorts of buttons and when you put it in M mode, you get mucho over exposure! Maybe I’ll finally embrace natural light photography after all. I also got a spiffy new lens for my new camera – a 50mm 1.4 USM lens! With all this new technology at my fingertips – I have got a lot to relearn in a short amount of time (my next session is tomorrow, Sunday at 4pm!!)

This image is soft because I had my new 50mm lens almost all the way open but will you LOOK at Hayden’s eyes…

I big puffy heart my new camera! Puffy puffy hearts everywhere.

Welcome to the “Canon Family”! I love my 50mm 1.8, still saving for the 1.4, but maybe by then I will be able to afford the 1.2. Love the photo, have fun with the new camera :)

CONGRATS!!!!! So jealous here. Been eyeing that camera, too. Have fun with it; I’m sure your pics will be amazing!

I have the 430EX and still find it confusing (and I use it alot). :)

Congrats! I am so jealous! Your pictures were perfect before…I just can’t wait to see what else you can do! The ability to capture the brightness in the eyes is what you do best!

Welcome to the family! :) Can’t wait to see more pictures from your new camera…I will be going full-frame next year (once I am actually charging good money!). The 430EX really isn’t too hard to figure out…I just turn it on & bounce away!
