Thanks to receiving our interest-free loan repayment from the federal government, we were able to purchase our first digital SLR camera. After much deliberation, we went with Canon’s EOS Rebel XSi, which included the 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS kit lens. We also splurged and got the beautiful 50mm f/1.4 USM lens. Below are pictures from our first day with a D-SLR straight from the camera: unedited, uncropped, and unprocessed. As you can see, we have much to learn about photography and our new machine, but we are looking forward to it! Click to enlarge the photos (they’ll probably look better enlarged).
