What a difference a day makes.
Yesterday I was in Houston shooting with a parade of talent with my trusty Canon Powershot G5. This camera has often gotten me 'surprised' praise from people that seem incredulous that I can get what I do from it. It's not particularly cantankerous or broken but there are hoops you sometimes have to jump through to get where you want to go. Still, I've learned a lot about what it can and cannot do and I've sharpened my skills with what's proven to be a blunt instrument.
Today, I had occasion to meet with someone who made me an incredible deal on a Canon Rebel XT. There have been a number of models released since and the XT is not the camera I would have gone looking for last week, but the deal was sweet and even with the stars in my eyes over Canon's latest and greatest, the XT is a pretty nice ride.
So now there's a new learning process with a new tool, but right out of the gate...wow, if I do say so myself. Hooray for quantum leaps and boo for denigrating reasonable equipment. This feels like a eureka moment and if you'd like to see: ( First public shot with the new rig - Kinda NWSCollapse )
Needless to say, I am TERRIBLY pleased with myself. Now to go after that next mountain with a bigger shovel...
