Took The Plunge

I did it. I ordered my camera. While I have been dying to get a SLR camera, I just hate to spend the amount of money it requires to buy one. Not to mention the cost of the lenses I am already drooling over.

So what did I get you may ask? After lots of research, talking with other SLR owners and looking around for the best possible price I have ordered:

Nikon D40x Digital Camera Kit with Nikon 18-55mm Lens

Nikon 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED IF AF-S DX VR Zoom Nikkor Lens
They should both be here by the end of the week (fingers crossed) and I cannot wait to start playing with it. Now I just need to find a pretty, I mean functional, bag for it all to go in. And a new SD card. I still need the one I have for my point and shoot.

I so cannot wait! What a perfect early V-day present from Matt. And to think, all I am getting him is a digital photo key chain and some chrome accessories for a dirt bike he and Chris are rebuilding.

Okay. It is probably not very Christian or ladylike to be THIS jealous.

I really, really, really want one of those.

You have heard about the possible tax refund in May. Perfect thing to use that money for Michelle :)

So cool! I am jealous. I'd actually been noticing that the photos on your blog were getting a more 'skilled' look to them - good for you! enjoy your new toy :D

We got this camera just before Spike was born -- our Christmas present to each other. You are going to LOVE IT!!! The quality is fantastic! Congrats!

I think I'm suffering from camera envy.

But tell me this -- digital SLR cameras can't shoot video, correct? Because having the ability to shoot video with my point-and-click is vital for me.

(Yes, that's a desperate attempt to squash the pining.)

Oooh, looks great! I'm jealous too. My camera is still one of the first digital cameras ever made. I need a new one so badly....
Can't wait to see the pics you will take!
