New Canon Rebel DSLR camera

I bought a new camera today.

It’s a 10.1 megapixel Canon Digital Rebel XTi Digital SLR (plus a 4gig memory card!)

It was kind of on a whim, but not really because I’d been planning on buying it for a while. Circuit City had it on sale (well, the website had it listed for $65 less, but it was full price at the store – they sold it to me at the website price though) and had a 2-year warranty that covered accidental damage for $100 less than Ritz’s (with a camera, I really wanted the protection if I drop it).

I stopped at Fry’s first and was happy because they were the first store I had been to that actually had the cameras out and set up so you could use them. So, I finally got to check out what the camera actually was like to use. I took a few pics of signs, then looked around for something else and saw Scott in the same aisle as me. “Hmm”, thought Val, “I should take a pic of Scott and see if he notices.” So, I focus on Scott and take his picture. Scott looks up and thinks “why is this crazy person taking my picture? Wait, I know this crazy person.” Hehe, Scott was also looking for a camera as his was stolen 🙁

Alas, Fry’s camera was full price and their warranty didn’t cover any accidental damage, so I did not buy it. Instead I went to Target and bought some blonde hair dye and a cute little sun dress. So, my hair is now blonde(r) and getting to the color I want for it to be and I am dressed as if it is 70 degrees warmer than it is (see pic above). But later I saw the deal on the Rebel at Circuit City and decided to go there and just go for it. By deal I mean I still spent more than anyone should ever spend on a camera, but I am in love with it and I don’t care. 🙂

(in other news, I think I [finally after over a year] fixed the ‘remember personal info’ check box on the comments pages, so if you leave a comment, check it and hopefully it will save you from having to retype your name/email/website each time you comment)

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.

    let me know if the site remembers your name 🙂
    Yes, I can attach other lenses to it! That is the biggest reason I chose the Canon camera over any other brand since I already have a couple of other lenses for my regular canon slr, so I knew they’d be compatible.
