My new 'obsession' begins!!!!!

I just 'won' this camera on ebay. I am so excited. I have a digital camera that takes okay photos....but I want really great pics. We won't live here forever and would like to take some beautiful photos of the country home with us. The first place I would like to go is to France and Belgium again to get some photos of rememberance. So.....I am definately not going to America in November now.....I know this camera is a thing that is going to keep costing with new lens' etc...aaahhh a whole new world to discover!!!! Thanks Donna for your expertise!!!!

Are you moving to America or just visiting??

You are gonna LOVE that camera! Is that the lens that came with it? What zoom is it? Hopefully, it came with a battery and battery charger. You'll need a UV filter for the lens to protect it too. Oh yeah, and there are digital cards needed too! Let's see, a digital imaging program for your computer, books, lessons. Yep, that's the whole Christmas budget! LOL, but you will get immense fun from it all!

Hi Tay...just visit America...would love to live there though.

Oh crap Donna....I don't know what it comes with. mmmm will have to check it out...lucky for me, my birthday is November and Christmas is just after. I am guessing that it comes with everything...the guy bought it and only took it out of the box a couple of times. He rang me and told me it cost him over 700 GBP. I will let you know what it comes with when I get it.

Wow Robby what a gorgeous camera...so you won't be coming here to take photos of the places you love....waaaaaa!
I do know you will share your pictures with us and can't wait.

Oh yes, all that is good. Glad that it comes with a filter too. You'll want to pick up another battery and compact flash card (2 or 4MB should be plenty). The zoom lens is good for wide angle and just a smidge over normal. When all the dust settles and you know how to use it, you'll want to get a zoom lens that gets into the telephoto range.

Robby, enjoy your new camera. We just got a new nikon coolpix for our trip to Maui. It took fab pics and I just love this camera. Gets really close for my pinkeep shots. Wishing you and your family a wonderful holiday weekend. Oh wait, is it a holiday there? Nan

Oh Nan....I couldn't get anything to stick and thought that if things weren't working out then it must mean not to come. xxxRobby

Robby said...

Hey Gina, I just couldn't get any plans to stick. I stopped stalking you because you were cramming for you shows and didn't think you would want the distraction. I have been busy getting the boys off to school and finding my feet again with my sewing. If you want me to stalk you I will :)

That is all in the past now!!! xxxRobby
