For Christmas, S. Geek seriously went overboard with a whole new Canon T2i for me. I’ve only just cracked the spine of the manual but so far it’s totally amazing the advances in technology that have happened in the four years I’ve had my old camera! When S. Geek was probing me for gift ideas I resisted the idea of getting a new camera, afterall, my old camera was back up to snuff after a bit of tinkering, a new SD card, a thorough cleaning and several motivational conversations. But now that I have the beauty in my hands um, yeah I’m totally hooked. It’s not just the brilliant new technology though, it’s my brand new flash! Oh, the difference in my pictures is absolutely night and day! I received the Canon 430EXii, which is the mid level speedlight that Canon offers. The refresh rate on the flash is astounding, I don’t know maybe it’s because I’ve always used the built in flash that I’m so impressed but seriously!
I know nothing about flashes of course as this is my first one, but I can’t wait to spend some quality time learning and experimenting. Until then though, here’s a few shots I have managed to capture.
OK, I had a big list of pictures to upload but I took these all on the highest quality setting and they are taking FOREVER so I’m going to stop there. But, don’t worry there’s lots and lots and lots more coming in the future.
