Last night Hubby assembled the camera for me and charged the battery, and this morning I took a few practice shots in Auto mode... nice! What I'm really looking forward to, though, is tinkering around in the Manual mode. Once I wrap my brain around "aperture" and "shutter speed" and "exposure" and all those other real camera terms, I think I'll actually have a fair shot at taking a few mildly decent photos. If they don't turn out, it certainly won't be the camera's fault!
So off I go on this new adventure-- the babe is sleeping, the boys are playing upstairs with a friend, the dogs are crashed out on the floor... time to delve into the world of digital SLRs... wish me luck!
