New Toy: Canon 50D

Never expected to get a dSLR so soon and only thought i’ll only be getting the entry level 500D…
But Dad surprised me when we were walking around Funan with Uncle Matthew, checking out prices.

Both of them agreed, even the sales guy at Alan Photo, that it’ll be better to get a good SLR with good lens and stick with it, then to keep changing when the need arises. Now i understand why photography is an expensive hobby but a good investment.

So… now i own a Canon 50D with 18-200mm lens, hee!

And it’s amazing that Dad didn’t force me to get a Nikon (he has an old film SLR), since he has existing old lenses (but require servicing due to mold issues)…

Well it’s a co-share toy but i’ll probably be using it more often than Dad, so anyone willing to guide this newbie along, pls msg me… would love to head out for outings if schedule permits 🙂

And photos will be up soon, hee.

Btw, thanks to the nice sales guy for being so patient and being helping and detail with the purchase!

      @ lbandit:

      no lor… still newbie, my first canon camera, not sure how to use yet 😛

  1. No lar! New lens & flash tt you should buy! You’ll have more fun shooting if you have an ETTL flash.

    Also get a lens filter to protect your new 18-200!

    And invest in a dry cabinet! Else you’ll get the mouldy issues too.

      orh, yes sir!
      eh, lens filter – done.
      dry cabinet – tbc, using dry box with silica gel + charcoal bag 😛
