Puppies. Other people get puppies. Based on social media feeds, a lot of puppies have been acquired all across the globe. Totals cute. However, my lease forbids pets (I have debated if it would be okay to get you know a reindeer or some other funky wild animal).
So, I got a new camera.
They say girls shop for Choos. Shoes. Et al.
Still, I got a new camera. My baby Olympus E-420 got a big brother. Welcome to the family, Canon EOS 6D (and EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM lens)!
Random answers I (intend to) offer (because I do find it really difficult to explain to people why I need a camera that big and all) based on how funny I am trying to be (no-one usually gets those jokes tho, it's a fun-fest for one):
- It's bigger. Bigger is better.
- All the cool kids have one.
- It lets you register your battery (yeah, I read the manual last night; you can register up to six batteries to your camera - sounds all a lot like polygamy).
- This one plays better with other kids, i.e. it gets along better with different types of light.
- It has Wifi, I can upload everything directly to Facebook.
- I had had a rough day and I wanted to go on a shopping spree and I didn't find any shoes I like. So, I got a camera.
Okay, but on a more serious note. It is something I had planned for like a year, at least. I had done my research, I had driven myself crazy (there is no perfect camera, you know) and I had found my match. Have to grow into it, you know. It's kind of a gigantic leap (literally, see the photo above). It feels right and a bit scary. Yes, I am "a bit" excited.
Over and out. Out with my new camera.
On a side note: Bigger does not always mean better. And if you ever consider DSLR do no start with anything big. But I will blog more about that in the future.
