New camera

After 2 1/2 days of indecision, today I bought a new camera. I tend to be financially conservative so I surprised myself by upgrading my camera instead of just replacing it. I totally waffled because my 40D was a fantastic camera, I loved it. But having the 5D could be an advantage, and upgrading when the insurance is going to pay for part of it just seemed like too good of an opportunity to miss. So I've been playing with this beautiful new camera all evening. It's so fun! I don't have a great lens - I still need to replace my favorite one that was stolen, but even with what I have I'm really happy.

I love that she is still very happily wearing moon boots on April 30th - on the wrong feet no less.

What's amazing about this is that it was taken at ISO 2000. I think the 40d only went to ISO 1600. And the high ISO settings on the 40D had a lot of grain.

This is just a un-retouched crop of the previous picture. Amazing clarity for ISO 2000! And hardly any grain.

I put this in because my husband never appears in pictures (he has a problem with photographers :) ), but he was helping me test out the new camera. I think this is meant to be his new facebook profile picture.
