Canon EOS 450D

Photography, my new passion.

DSLR, my new instrument.

Canon, my new toy!

Canon is the best thing that ever happened to me  (now that’s if I’m being super dramatic only!) I’ve always had a thing for photography, just think of those LCD screens at the back, they do magic if you don’t have your specs on, sharp and precise, not when you see the print outs though!

Birthdays are special occasions, what I like most about them is that they get you good gifts, good cameras! The first (real!) film camera I owned was a birthday gift from my parents for my 16th birthday, it was a Yashica (do they still exist, I wonder). I loved it, treated it like a precious diamond, no one was allowed to touch it! I used it a lot, my memories are carved within the lens of that camera, right through to University. Then my husband gifted me a digital camera for my birthday, a Sony (Cybershot) that lasted for a good 4 years.

Then I turned 24, I waited.. I waited, to no avail, no camera this time! That’s when I thought Birthdays definitely lost their glory, to feel better I got myself a Casio exilim. I explored photography with my Casio. I got some valuable inspiration from Anna. My Casio was doing well to start off, but then you start seeing the flaws, and think “lovely picture… if only the flash was stronger, the details crispier, the zoom better” and that is when you think SLR!

……………and now my Canon EOS 450D has arrived, no not a birthday gift again!

Enough introduction, here is the beauty queen:





…and if you’re wondering why I took a picture of the box and not the camera itself, think twice 😛 If you still can’t figure out, I’m really concerned!

    I’m not into photography too much, but would buy a nice camera like this just so that I could take nice pics for my blog!
