    I believe in Santa now

    Look what he left us under the chimney, or maybe it was the UPS guy.

    Our old compact digital camera died last year and my wife has been nagging me to buy a nice DSLR. She has an old Rebel film camera that was costing us a bundle in film developing. I finally succumbed to the pressure and bought Canon 60D. We liked the swivel screen feature on this camera. We are still going to use the old 28-90mm lense, even though that lens does not have the IS feature. I did buy the 70-300mm IS lense. Why? Because my wife wanted that too.

    I just downloaded a bunch of videos from Canon's web site. Now if I could only find the time and patience to watch them.

    You just reminded me of LOML's Grandma Ida. She was a little 5'-0" woman of Polish heritage who alway said "Use it in good health" when you were opening a gift.

    It didn't matter if it was a ball-peen hammer or a sweater - "Use it in good health" was her mantra. She lived to 96 - so maybe she knew something about what she spoke.

    Cheers

    Oh Boy---Wish I could trade someone my EOS 35mm SLR. I have three lenses for it---two are zoom. It looks and acts brand new. It also uses film (you have heard of film havn't you?).
    It is one of those items that come under the heading, "Too good to throw away, but I'll never use it."

    So---Have fun with that camera and I will join you vicariously.

    Enjoy and bless UPS,

    Jim

    Well, there goes THAT excuse for not posting pics, huh Mohammad?

    That's a great camera. I've got the swivel screen on my D5000, and it comes in handy.

    Who knew Santa wore a brown suit and drove a brown truck?

    Great camera. Lesson learned; always listen to your wife ;-)
