That's a Canon EOS 40D Digital SLR.


All mine! :)

WOWWWWWWieeee!!!!!

I am so envious!!!!!

God, isnt it expensive!!!!!

I dont even have a plain digital camera, forget SLR....

I'm now going to start pestering my worse half for a digicam or better still, a handycam. Or my name isnt Rinchen.

How Dinu of me :)

I was really excited and jumpy the first couple of days after getting this baby. Sorry for the mix-up!

Thanks Jomy. Will start uploading some pics once I get a hang of it.

Hey Rinch, I hope your better half doesn't visit my blog :)
Btw, follow my tip - start saving up yourself for your dream and drop subtle hints now and then.

Thanks Rakuboy. You will see them soon!

Rinchen said...

I hope not too, GWBE! I should really watch what I say...

My better half's the saver between us. Me - I'm the poorest accountant in the world.

Meanwhile, I cant wait to own a digicam!

WOW ... that's cool stuff...

AK said...

Congrats GWBE! I've heard thatz a nice camera, but haven't used it yet. Nice to see that you have all the lenses too.. so everything covered eh - wide, tele, macro... nice! expecting some snaps now.

Girl With Big Eyes said...

Yup it's an all-in-one lens. Pro photographers might not like it, but it's good enough for me :)

And thanks!

Neat buy!!!
My roomie recently bought 35D!
awesome stuff!!

dinu said...

Buy the 50mm f1.8 lens too. It is only 80 USD and it is one of the best lenses canon made.. x

Girl With Big Eyes said...

Nik,
Yeah it is awesome. Revelling in all the awesomeness :)

Dinu,
One step at a time. I have to recover from this huge expense to think about adding more lenses. And I have a huge task of proving the RoI on this investment too :)
