Brian has wanted a digital SLR for probably as long as I've known him. We've always found reasons not to get one though, citing price as our biggest hurdle. Brian has patiently (and painfully) watched as, slowly, each one of our friends has upgraded from their point and shoot cameras or 35mm SLR's and bought a digital SLR. Each time, I watch Brian's reaction and my heart sinks as I can taste his mixed emotions of envy and reality (that we can't afford it!).
We recently "found" some money and we (read "I") decided that it was time to bite the bullet and get a DSLR. Brian did a bit of research and he decided on the Canon 50D. I have to admit, not knowing anything about cameras, that it is pretty amazing! Even I can take a few good pictures with that camera. But then again, I guess it better be pretty damn good for the price!
Here are some of the first photos we've taken with the camera:
