My husband Brad just posted a video to his blog, but I have a feeling most of you who read my blog aren't necessarily following him (techy nerd stuff usually), so I thought I would post it here as well. Whoa. How was that for a run-on sentence??
Anywhoo... we have loved our Canon Rebel XTi that we bought in March 2007. It is super durable and takes great pictures without much effort. The only trouble we ever had was with low lighting. I'm sure there was/is a way around it by adjusting the ISO and fiddling with the manual mode but as it turns out, I'm much more of an automatic kinda girl. Point, click, and voila! Pretty picture. That's how I like it.
Moving on with the story (brevity has never been my strength)... we were happy with the camera but never could find a camcorder we really loved. Plus it's a pain to carry around a camera and a camcorder in an already 50 pound diaper bag, ya know? You know.
Enter the Canon Rebel T1i. Jackpot, baby! It takes even better pictures than our old Rebel and has a built in video camera! We just got it yesterday and I've been busy listing things on Craigslist (old Rebel, old camcorder, etc) so we can break even with the purchase. Here's a video Brad shot at my mom's house today while we were swimming. I am totally excited about the video quality :)
