I did not place a $607.34 order on a Canon EOS 1100D Twin Lens Kit BLACK Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm IS and 55-250mm IS lenses, 2 Year warranty, extra large camera bag with lens components and a camera cleaning kit..

Um... Ooopsy, should be here in 3-7 business days.. LOL!! Oooh I'm feeling it already, ahwell work head down bum up for a few weeks no spending all is good. I blame my instructor for giving me a viable excuse to get my dream camera... going to take lots of pictures next year when she is showing.

Not bad considering Canon sell them for $899 with no accessories (bag, extra warranty, cleaning kit etc).. ;)

Im a Nikon guy, it goes all the way back to high school when cameras used film, and all the special effects were done with filters or in the darkroom. My very first camera was a Canon AE-1, in the 2 years I owned it the danged thing was in the shop half the time. So I traded it for a Nikon F-2, and I dropped it down the Chisos mountains in Big Bend National Park. Went down after it, dusted it off and started shooting pics again. Been a Nikon guy ever since.

FYI, it is spelled W-H-O-A.

6gun, I can so relate. I was our paper/yearbook editor in high school and took photog classes in college. Had every intention of being a photojournalist but somehow ended up being an investment broker (and now a mom and back to horses full time). I do miss being in a darkroom, might be weird but I even miss the smell of dektol. There's something to be said about not instantly knowing if you got a good shot until you develop your negatives. I started with my mom's F1 that she used in her photog classes in school. I still have it, I really should take it in and have the foam replaced so I can play with it for fun.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

I have the Nikon D3200 with the 18x55 lens and the 55x200 lens. I love my Nikon. I also have just a simple point and shoot canon that I use to. Actually I like the canon better for some shots and the Nikon for others.

I had to marvel at my son. He'd been eyeballing a Canon in a pawnshop for weeks. It had 3 lenses, big rechargeable batteries, bag, etc. One day he went in there with $400. He didn't carry even a nickel more. He put the bills on the counter and asked if that would cover the cost of the camera. In all honesty he said that that was all he had. The pawnbroker looked at the cash and a deal was made. How's that for having a horseshoe up you know where. Apparently he's done this a few times. He said the trick is to leave your wallet at home so when you say that's all you have, it comes across as honest. I took his advice and that is how I got my Canon.

I have the same set up :) I love the D3200, but I'm thinking about moving up to the D5200. I like having more focus points and the flip-out screen. I'm also trying to save up for a "big daddy" lens - the NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II.

But my D3200 and 55-200 does a really good job when you have lots of light. Here is my favorite photo my mom took with my camera yesterday. It was pretty amazing for a budget set-up. :)

I have a 40D with a 17-85mm and a 50mm lens. Currently saving up for a 70-200mm as well. :)
