Just a quick post on the topic of taking pictures of plants. Today I went out a bought a Canon Rebel EOS XS as an early birthday gift to myself (my birthday is on Tuesday). I suppose with all the photographs I’ve been taking latley I’ve been craving a better camera. If I’m going to invest all of this time, shouldn’t the quality of my work be at a higher level. I don’t know.
So far I’m unsure of my new purchase, I guess I’ve been using point and click digitals for the last 8 years and this one seems unnessesarily complex. There is no comparision in the image quality, but the larger heavier size and complex controls are making me question my decision. I’m trying to decide if I’m just being stubborn in having to learn how to use a new piece of equipment, or if this is just more tech then I need. I’ve read the manual, spent a couple hours playing around and it still feels pretty unnatural. Point and shoot or SLR, that is the question. I have 14 days to return it so I’m going to read up on how to use it and make my decision in a couple days. What do you think?
