Oh friends, I have a serious problem. My beloved digital camera, she of ancient years, scratched body, and pitiful megapixels, has finally bitten the dust. She has been on all my vacations, been present at weddings and funerals, and taken thousands of food photographs. A moment of silence, please.
At first I was not too distraught. After all, it was her time, and she went with moderate grace and dignity. Ashes to ashes. Plus, now I could get a new, super updated camera without any guilt! After reading way too many reviews, I settled on a midrange Fuji point and shoot. It came, it was tiny, it was cute, it seemed perfect.
But friends, after playing with it for a week…I hate it. HATE. It doesn’t have any of the customizing options of my old camera, like manual focus. After taking loads of mediocre photos this afternoon, it left me feeling like this:
So I am about ready to upgrade to a DSLR, but I need advice. If you have one, what kind do you have? Do you like it? What lenses do you have? (I’m interested especially in macro lens recommendations.)
And the soft molasses cookies? Not much better than the new camera. I didn’t even finish one, which hardly ever happens. And the hubs thought they were so forgettable, he literally couldn’t remember what they were a few hours after eating them. I mentioned I was going to toss them, and he said, “Oh, the chocolate cookies? Okay.”
