After four wonderful years with my Canon XTi, I finally got a new camera last week! There are adjustments to be made (first, I had to get used to how heavy it is!), but I’m so in love. The 7D just photographs beautifully, and I’ve had a lot of fun playing around with the video feature. I’m so, so happy I finally decided to take the next step up!

Here are a few photos from the first few days with my camera, where I was trying to acclimate myself to the settings and also test it out (boy is it faster than my XTi! That photo of my doll was taken in near-darkness, and there’s not a hint of grain!). Joseph and Leonardo are my unwilling test subjects :)

A short video. I’m just amazed by the image quality, even after being compressed for online streaming. I am going to have a lot of fun with this!
