A couple of hours ago I collected this delightful baby to add to my family of cameras and I can only say that she is beautiful. The perfect entry-level DSLR camera that I could ever ask for surely, and I must really thank my parents who insisted on covering the cost of the camera for me - they are the bestest. Hopefully with this Canon EOS 500D I can take my blog to a whole new level with even better quality pictures, and perhaps in time go on to explore the unchartered but exciting fields of photography as well. Of course, there is still much to learn, and I'm so ready to start going out there to snap away! :)
I will not forget my trusted Canon Ixus 80 IS, which has been close to me all this while. In fact I plan to use both cameras interchangeably, especially when I'm still admittedly an amateur at DSLR photography. Moreover, the Ixus is less intimidating when I'm out at smaller eateries and stalls, so it would definitely be the camera of choice then.
Even in instances where I only have my Nokia N85 with me, you can still expect to find pictures from it for some of my blog posts. It still packs a good punch with a clear 5 megapixel Carl Zeiss lens and can actually pass off as a digital camera in optimum lighting.
So here they are, the babies for The Simplest Aphrodisiac. I will add a "Camera Used" section in all my posts from now on, because I can see myself switching between the EOS and Ixus frequently and it will be good to give credit to where it belongs.
Canon. Delighting ME Always! :)
