Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid

This is what my hubby gave me for my 50th birthday:



Complete with a 55 - 250 mm lens and camera case.

My kids are already planning their escape routes and hiding places.  Mind you it may take me a while to get the hang of it so I also got this:


I'm super excited and can hardly wait for the battery to charge.  And I'm also feeling totally overwhelmed!  So my big day will be spent doing some reading.  350 pages worth.  Oy!   Dana I wish you lived a tad closer!  :v)

Looks like a beauty! I hate the learning curve of a new piece of equipment, but it's worth it in the long run. Though I usually like for my kids to just show me what to do, lol!

How exciting! When I first got my Nikon DSLR, I worked through the 31 Days to a Better Photo tutorial that Darcy at Life With My 3 Boybarians did in October. It helped immensely, way more than reading the manual.
