Don't You Just Love Your Digital Cameras?

I reckon that digital cameras are heaven sent and one of the best inventions of the modern gadget world. Aside from not worrying about buying a film for the camera, I also don’t need to be too aware of how many shots is still left the film that I loaded.

The convenience of taking lots of photos to your hearts desire and seeing the result right away using a digi cam are just awesome. With all the photos that you got, you also had the chance to choose the best shot that you want to be printed or shared online.

Anyway, I got my very 1st digital camera way back in 2005; it has no memory card installed at that time and the lcd monitor was just about 2 inches wide. I upgraded in 2007 with a Canon point and shoot digicam which up to now is still working great.

Later Nov. of 2007, as a birthday gift to myself, I bought my very 1st DLSR and it’s Canon 400d or rebel XTi. I was ecstatic that time and so very keen on taking lots of photos. Later on I found myself upgrading my 18-55mm lens kits to 50mm 1.8 II lens and now to Canon 18-200mm IS lens.

Being new to DSLR back then I was confined on using the Auto Mode since I don’t know how other settings work but later on I was able to get off the auto mode after experimenting and reading my camera’s manual. I’m still learning each time I hold my camera, I can now take shots using Manual, Program (P), Aperture Priority (AV) and the Shutter Priority Mode (TV) but my fave is the AV mode.

I’m still challenged by the Shutter Priority Mode (TV) and I’m not sure if I can master that. Oh well, I still have lots of room for improvement but I’m proud of myself. Just like last year I had this big project, the Photo-a-day or the Project 365 and I did it will flying colors. I was able to finish the whole year of taking photos each day and I’m proud to say that I have my photos printed on a photobook already. I will share the photos of my photobook here soon.
