Meet the new love of my life 🙂

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)

    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.
