Oh and Squeeee
…oh and SQUEEEEEEEE!
I got my first DSLR earlier this evening!
A Nikon D3100–which does HD and takes 1080p video. It will be awesome.
I was really going to go with Canon; but, the Canon and Nikon I chose and were comparing (which cost the same, give, or take a few bucks) had a few significant differences.
- 11 pt AF vs. 9 pt on the canon
- 14.2 megpix vs. 12.2 on the canon
- Wider ISO range on the nikon
Just minor things, but enough to jump on the Nikon bandwagon. lol
Besides, since I short-circuited the motor of my last Canon, I have been using my teen’s COOLPIX for a few weeks. With her leaving for Connecticut Thursday night for 10 days, there is no time left to get a replacement.
I haven’t had any time, hardly, to figure out all the awesome things that I’ll be able to do with it; but battery charged, I am very excited about reading the user manual, playing with all the settings/features, figuring out how to use it…and hopefully taking some good pictures by Thursday!
On knitting front, sleeves re-knit and seamed. I may be able to get some decent modeled shots tomorrow to share 😀
Have you wandered around Stitchin’ Post this week
and look at all the beautiful quilts,
fabrics, notions, samples, and kits?
How did you spend the hottest day in summer?
Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
