it was a surprise kinda. our tax returns came in, so my fiance bought me an early birthday present (my bday is next month). he was gonna get it then, but because my current camera was breaking down on me, he got it early for me....
i LOVE it... its my first time using an SLR camera, i was a little iffy on the MP but have got the chance to test it out before buying it and i love it!!!
i got a Canon Rebel EOS T3 with a 18-55 mm lens and a 75-300 mm zoom lens, as well as some filters, a case, a tripod, and a good memory card (the case, filters, tripod) all came in the case as a kit.
I am pretty happy with it and have been testing it out!!
no instructions for me, i am winging it :P
what i was using before
what i will now be using
and of course... ive had some pretty good models
will put the bird photos up in the photo section
