My old cameras died, both of them on the same day and I have been researching new ones, which were way beyond my financial means.
My youngest son and his partner, were here the day after my cameras died and he showed me a few cameras online he thought I needed.
I have only used Sony Cyber Shots, which my son says is nothing more than a glorified point and shoot with expensive batteries.
Hey I liked them.
He told me to not buy a camera til he and his partner got back up here from Oregon for my birthday. I agreed and was pretty frustrated at what I saw online anyway.
Today I recieved a new Canon SLR EOS Rebel T3 EOS 600 with 4 different lenses. Holy moly. It is a birthday gift from the guys and thank god there is an instruction book.
Holy crap it is confusing and frustrating.
The guys told me it is time for me to learn to use a good camera.
I just found tutroials on you tube too so I am going to be busy learning how to use this thing, and the lenses.
Yes I am grateful and yes, I thanked them and meant it, but holy shit this is confusing.
