So remember how I’ve been begging for a camera? And then I told you last week that all that soul sucking begging paid off and then never told you how it paid off?
Yeah, well sorry ’bout that. Well my new Canon 450D/Rebel XSi arrived via UPS yesterday afternoon amidst much jumping up and down and gleeful shouting. Here was me, all day yesterday…”Was that the UPS truck!!!” as I ran to the window only to see NO SIGN of the UPS truck. “Oh I better not shower, what if the UPS man comes while I’m showering??” “No vacuuming today! I might not hear the doorbell when the UPS man shows up!” “Carson BE QUIET!!! I can’t listen for the UPS man!” “Did you hear that? Did it sound like a UPS truck, Carson??”
So needless to say, I got very little done yesterday waiting and waiting and waiting. It was torture! But I’m guessing you’re sitting at your computer saying, “GET TO HOW YOU GOT THE CAMERA ALREADY!”
Jeez, I was getting to it. Patience.
One of my wonderful readers, Trish, emailed me recently and told me that she works for a company who sells cameras at wholesale price. She offered to let me choose a Nikon d60 or the Canon XSi for free for 30 days. After 30 days I could either box it back up and return the camera OR buy the camera at wholesale cost. Her exact words to me were “I know it’s not as cool as Canon contacting you directly…”
Shut up! Oh it’s as cool alright! Since it’s not a free forever camera and I’m not expected to write a review, I’m not even in violation of my BlogHer ads agreement! I, of course, accepted the offer and am now in a mad frenzy to prove to my skeptical husband that we NEED to buy this camera. He’s convinced that we won’t be able to capture any better pictures with the XSi than we can with our S5IS point and shoot.
I have 30 days to prove him wrong…and YOU can help! Send me your best camera tricks, tips, settings, WHATEVER so that I can become a photography wizard. HALP! I CAN HAS NO CAMRA SKILLZ.
