So, I bought my new camera last wednesday and it just arrived today. I am sooo excited. I have been looking at getting a more professional DSLR camera for 2years+ and had finally decided on the Olympus Evolt e510. I did all sorts of research and comparisons to find the perfect camera for me. For some reason, even though I had the money at the time, I waited to buy the e510 and one day in Circuit City I saw the e520 was out (and in stores). I fell in love. So I did more research (I'm obviously not the impulse buying kind of girl) and finally purchsed it for almost $800 usd, including shipping.
While this may seem like a huge chunk of money, I can rationalize it via the technology of both the camera and the lenses and the fact that I have been SUFFERING with my old camera, a kodak cx7430, (which would only take 10-20 pictures on fully charged/brand new batteries). Painful as that camera is/was I had saved up and bought it over 4 years ago for around $150 usd. It was high end at that time, with a whopping 4 megapixels. But I bought it as a refurbished camera off eBay (not knowing any better) and I did drop it once on the carpeted floor in my bedroom and the casing split open. I took a screwdriver and forced it back together, but ever since then it stopped acting correctly.
So long story short, I have my new camera which can only mean that I will be spamming devart with new deviations (as soon as the battery is fully charged!!). And I cannot wait till I go to Vegas, Sedona, and the Grand Canyon to try out the Panoramic function!!!!
I feel bad for bragging, but I feel I deserve this moment! Thanks for reading and I wish you all art!
p.s. If anyone has any tips or tricks, as I am obviously NEW to DSLR cameras, that they wouldn't mind sharing please let me know! Thanks again!!
