Well its my birthday today. Not only am I special because of that, I am special because I have a beautiful woman who loves me and for some reason...takes care of me. Oh...keep it "G" fellas...not like I am gonna post any thing like that here.
Follow the jump to see what I got.
Ok, enough gloating. This is the Canon EOS Rebel T1i. It is a great entry level DSLR. For those who are wondering (I had to google it) DSLR stands for Digital Single Lens Reflex.What exactly does that mean? I really don't know enough to try to explain it. It has to do with the way it shoots the pictures. What ever it is..it works.
Here are some shots I took as soon as I got them home. I did a comparison shot with my wife's point and shoot to give you an idea of what you get. I took both pictures using the same light, in as close to the same position as possible. I also did not do any alterations to the pictures using Picasa with the exception of cropping them down.
First with the Olympus Stylus 790 point and shoot.
I would say the pictures came out about the way I expected. The one exception being the color difference. Now the Canon pics are shot right out of the box with no adjustments to the standard settings. I am sure with some work in that area I will have some great shots in the future.
