New Camera

Well here I sit among boxes, bodies, batteries, books, cables, cd's, chargers, filters, bags and tags going MAAAAAAMA !!!

I got the Canon 40D. It came with a EF 28-135mm as a kit. Then I bought a 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM and a EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 lll.

I need a asprin.

Re: New Camera

You can now look forward to several nights tucked up in bed with a cup of hot chocolate and the manual .

By the way the manual does fall apart very easily but you can download a pdf version from the Canon site if you need to.

Re: New Camera

Must be something in the air because there were some new arrivals in the VinnyP household today.



Mother and father are doing well but for some reason the father is a little more excited than the mother

AQ, thank you for the info about the manual. I can see now that would be a great idea for me to do. That's some itty bitty print in there.

I did manage to get the time and date set last night. There are some other start up issues I haven't decyphered yet. I am going to try to resolve it by myself first before I cry for help.

They did give me the wrong lense for my 300mm , I wanted 300mm with the image stablizer, and two of the lense filters were the wrong size also. Too small. Have to return those items then I will be happy. For a while. Hummmmmmmmmm? Wonder what else will need to come home with me then?

Everything I bought was either on sale or had just been discounted so all in all I guess I did on.

Vinny ! I think you outspent me by a long shot. Wow. Congratulations and have fun.

Sorry everything didn't arrive as you wanted it Nancy (I'm sure you'll get the correct items soon) but congrats on all the new kit, the 40D is an excellent bit of kit that will do you for a good while yet.

If you could PM me your address along with times that you'll be out of the house I'd appreciate it!

Re: New Camera

Nancy, sounds like you're going to be having a lot of fun. Tip put the manuels somewhere safe then go play with your new toys much much more than reading first

Vinny, that's some serious kit you've got yourself
