So, my husband bought me my first real camera. It was a Canon Rebel 35 mm! That was even better. I could change lenses and get up to 36 pictures per roll of film! If you played your cards right you could actually get 37 or 38 pictures because there would be extra at the end of the roll. Because developing was still expensive I used the Clark Color Labs more often and still had to wait, but was still excited to see the pictures when I picked it up in the mail.
Once the digital SLRs came out, I wanted one so bad I could taste it. Imagine being able to take a picture and immediately delete it if it's no good! You can connect your camera to your PC or laptop and look at them seconds after you snap the pic! Being that they were fairly expensive because of the new technology, I knew it would be a long time until I would be able to afford one. It was a dream.
I worked for the county and was having a conversation with my supervisor, we started discussing technology and cameras and found out that he liked to take photos also. I told him my dream of getting a DSLR and he happened to be one of those people that always buys the newest technological thing to come out. Well, just so happened he had just bought a new DSLR, had an old one with a lens that he offered to sell me for $300. What you see is are the results of that transaction! My very first Digital SLR, again a Canon Rebel xi, the best part is the lenses I already had for my 35 mm Rebel also fit my new Digital Rebel and it's all autofocus. I can say that I don't always use the autofocus. I learn new ways to take pictures on a regular basis. If I want to know something there are several reputable photography websites to get information on. Settings, apertures, speed, etc. when you do not understand it, it can be very confusing and I cannot say that I am completely savvy as of yet.
I thank you and I am glad that you have decided to view what I have learned and watch my experience grow as time moves on.....
