    New camera!

    My mom got me a 12 mp Canon EOS digital SXI 450D! (I really have no idea what EOS, SXI, or 450D means. ) I also got an extra battery, a 4gb memory card, and bag for it, and 1 macro lens! I can't wait to use it! To bad the batteries didn't come precharged!

    Dayum. You've got some generous folks. Macro lenses in the DSLR world are not cheap, let alone the 12 megapixel cameras. Is this your first DSLR camera?

    What it means is your camera will be really nice - that's all you need to know at the moment! lol!

    Crack open that users manual!

    Sometimes there are tutorial packages for fancier digital cameras that are a set with a book and CD Rom. I got one off ebay for my Nikon Coolpix 5700 but never made myself work through it like I should have. Now I can't find the tutorial set so I only know what a few of the, myriad buttons, lenses, etc actually do! I know enough to get by but I'm not getting the most out of it for sure.

    Getting used to a new camera takes time. Honestly for myself I think using the camera and fiddling around with it will be the best way to familiarize yourself with your camera. You can spend months procrastinating reading that manual... If you know what the basic features are such as how to change your camera to macro or how to change aperatures then you will be fine. Go through the cameras menu lists and aquaint yourself with all the features and if you dont know what they are some cameras have an information option or you can just look it up online. Many manufacturers also provide an e-manual on thier site.

    Yes, it is my first camera DSLR. My mom doesn't know much about technology and ends up getting better version and such. Also this is considered half my present and half paying me back after she took 450 bucks from me. (saved up over winter) I asked for a 600 dollar camera, meaning she would be spending 250 dollars, witch isn't an extraordinary present compared to one of my Christmas presents. (an 81 cm lcd tv for my room) Lol, I feel rich saying that but, my family is only middle class.

    The macro lens is a tamron AF70-300mm F/45-5.6 (DI, Its in a different color so I don't know it I should add it) LD MACRO 1:2. lol, I had to step like ten feet away to get a full sized pic of a plant.

    Here is my first attempt with my camera. I can't wait to find some ants and other things!
