Well, it’s here. I’m so glad that Australian Air Express opens at 6:30 am. I was there at 6:45 am.
Yes, you were right. It’s a camera. A beautiful, brand new digital SLR – a Canon EOS 400D. I was thinking about getting a better model Canon, but who am I kidding? I’m not going to take professional shots or anything, so couldn’t justify the expense. I chose Canon because my 35mm is a Canon and I’ll be using the lenses from that camera on this one.
I’m just so excited to have this.
But I can’t use it!!
I have to charge the battery.
But more importantly, there is no memory card. Not even a pathetic little 16 MB card. I’m off shopping in an hour.
So here are some pictures of my new toy (ignore the dirty floor!!).
It also came with other freebies – a tripod (bigger and better than the little bendy ones you usually get with cameras, but compact enough that I can take it with me places – and perfect for my shaky hands), a bag (cheap, but it’s padded and will work until it falls apart), a spare battery (always handy, since it doesn’t take AAs), and lots of other little things – all written in Chinese, so I don’t know what they are. Maybe I should get Kevin Rudd to help me out on that one.
