Wow Wow Wow, I'm on a Camera High
Jun 18, 2014

Just got a used Canon 7D today.  I picked it up off ebay for a great price since the shutter count was not posted.  I paid a fee for EOSCount to tell me the camera has a whopping 5400 shutter count.  I can't believe my luck.  So I go to the electronic store to get a memory card (the only thing not included) as was taken back by the 32 GB, 120 MB/Sec cards price for $150.  Then they guy helping me told me he can match prices.  He went on the internet and found it being sold for $50.  LOL $100 off on a $150 card.  I also bought a EF 50mm f/1.8 II lens.  So I go home and start taking pictures.

I bought a big book on the Canon 7D and plan to read it many times to get the best out of my camera but for today it's a point and shoot camera with very little expectations.  I took some nature pictures and they are incredible!  I can't believe the color and clarity using the kit lens and the 50mm lens in point and shoot mode.  I didn't work the photos at all and they are only 2.7mb Jpeg pictures.  I am using them on my computer as my desktop back ground.  I know I am a long way from being able to brag on my pictures but everyone in my house is very impressed by my photographic prowess.  Talk about a great kick start into a new hobby!

Now off to reading my camera book so I have a plan of action tomorrow.
