New Camera! Woohoo! | Custom photography

THAT'S RIGHT!! IT'S OFFICIAL!! MARK (Canon EOS 5D Mark II) ARRIVED AT MY DOOR LAST WEEK!! Yes, I said LAST WEEK...

Why did I wait til now to scream? I think it's mainly due to all the "uncertainties" and "changes" that's added more of a feeling of "nervousness" than "excitement" to me...

I've been "nervous" about my new camera because I know it's totally different from my Rebel XS. Of course the basics are there, but the additional features (ie the big thumb wheel, video etc) posed some uncertainties in me, and so I was scared I wouldn't know how to operate them correctly as I'm so used to my simple Rebel.

Anyhow, to my surprised, after perusing all web links and videos available about the features of the 5D Mark II, I felt much better and think the learning curve isn't too bad.

THEN, when I finally received it, I was bummed to find out that all those SDHC cards that I had recently acquired can no longer be used, because Mark uses Compact Flash (CF) memory cards instead!

So, as excited as I was to try out Mark, I had to delay a few days until I go out and buy all brand new CF cards...

Of course, I couldn't wait too long, so I grabbed one from Costco the next day...and naturally, even w/ the CF card, I'm missing a CF card reader...(my laptop takes only SDHC cards)...



Essentially, it's been a week now that Mark has come to live w/ us, and still, I have yet to have seen the pictures Mark produces, because I'm still waiting for my card reader to arrive in the mail...

So you tell me how "excited" I can be...not much excitement, as far as I can tell...
