New Camera!



Well, I've made a decision and I've ordered a new camera. I've been all over with this decision... go cheap, knowing that I will upgrade as soon as weddings pay for it, go middle of the road and eventually use that camera as a back-up, go top of the line.... We don't have the $ for ANY of these cameras and know that we'd be going into debt (unless God miraculously supplies the $) - so it's a matter of how much we go into debt! Last week we decided to go CHEAP with the intentions of upgrading in the very near future. I picked up the camera and did an engagement shoot with it. When I processed them they were TERRIBLY NOISY (digital form of grain). I can not tolerate that level of noise!! And there is no way that I could sell these photos as stock. And so... back to the shop it had to go and back to the drawing board on this agonizing decision. Everyone has a different opinion and of course they are all right!! Well, today hubby finally said - we tried going cheap and it didn't work - just go and get the one that you want. YIKES!! What a turn around. So, today I put in the order for the Canon EOS 1D Mark III. It has some AMAZING features - which I suppose it should for the price tag! Haha! It will give me the ability to shoot in low light situations without a flash. It's the worlds fastest camera! And it will allow me to shoot a greater range of tones than other cameras on the market. A great feature when shooting white wedding dresses next to black tuxedos! Now comes a lesson in patience as I wait it's arrival....
