This is my favorite lolcat ever and it pretty well sums up the way I feel about my new DSLR camera. I read up and researched and asked around for months before setting my sites on this beast:
See all those buttons? Yea. I don’t know what they do. I have managed to grasp basics like the fully auto setting as well as the portrait, landscape and macro features. Beyond that, I’m toast. Mmmm toast. That sounds good right now. You don’t think my lack of an attention span could have anything to do with feeling overwhelmed by this camera, do you?
My mom bought my old point-and-shoot after hers met an unfortunate end with a bottle of sunscreen while she and my dad were in Walt Disney World celebrating their 30th anniversary. She looked at new models, but said she’d rather have mine because it was identical to what she had before and she’s too old to learn the bells and whistles of something new. So, I’m left without an “in the meantime” camera while I figure this thing out. It’s okay. I work well under pressure.
I’ve played around with it enough to nearly fill my memory card. The dog rolls her eyes every time I pull it out of the case because she’s tired of being my subject. I’ve successfully photographed some meals over the last week or so to post for your viewing pleasure. Now all I have to do is figure out how to get them onto my computer and into WordPress.
It came with books. Lots of books. I’ve skimmed them, but I need to find time to sit down and actually READ them without getting distracted by trivial things like getting a nursery ready for a baby that will be here in roughly 3 months. He or she may not have a place to sleep, but by golly I’ll have beautiful pictures of them.
