She is on her way . . . . . my new camera that is :-)

Well we placed the order last night, after much consideration and looking at another model option, my husband suggested that I upgrade a little to the Canon Rebel T1i.  I can't wait for my new little lady to arrive, put on her new camera strap sleeve that I have tucked away waiting for her, and start snapping some pictures.
We ended up choosing a deal off QVC HERE because they offered a 3 month payment plan and with us putting it on our bank card, we won't be paying interest.  There is no way on this side of heaven that I could afford to put out the full price of the camera at one time at this financial point in our life, we just have too much going on.  So if you are like us and run tight on money with your household budget, watch QVC or HSN for camera deals and choose the payment option that works with your life.  So I am happy to say this little lady will be arriving at my house next Tuesday and soon after you will begin to see some (hopefully) great pictures on my blog.

First-rate photography. The EOS Rebel T1i digital SLR camera and 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 IS lens help your explore a new realm of imaging with 15.1 megapixel resolution, a DiGIC IV image processor, and a photog-friendly interface that delivers super-sharp results.

The 3" diagonal TFT color LCD monitor is designed with seven-level brightness control, as well as an anti-reflective and scratch-resistant coating for a durably pristine view, even in direct sunlight. A variety of programmable modes--like white balance, color temperature, and picture style--allow you to turn each shot into something unique. And, a full HD video mode captures home movies at 1920x1080 resolution. From Canon.

So next on my wish list after paying off the camera in August, will be adding a battery grip for longer photo shoots.  This Canon BG-E5 Battery Grip kit is offered at Amazon for $149.95.  Then after that I will look for some lenses to add to my camera kit, but I have a birthday and of course Christmas in December for those to possibly happen ;-) in a beautiful little package from hubby, HA.
