"New" Canon XS (1000D) and New Year
The 300D finally died after 98,000 shots, two drops off a cliff and a brief encounter with the Atlantic Ocean. The Ocean was the final nail in the coffin. As a university student that's devastating since replacing it would be impossible financially, however my parents found a 1000D for about $100 and I grabbed it.
Here are a few pictures, to a new 2013 and maybe another 6 years out of this Rebel. I think my monitor calibration is off on the can, but please C&C if you wish.
The XS is a great pick up for $100...it is a very capable camera. I used mine for several years until it died.
I enjoyed the picture of the horse. Very nice.
I really like the shot of the horse. Sorry to hear about the 300D, you have to agree it had a storied life! As for product shots the book Light science and magic would probably help.
