Jumping ship, joining the bandwagon, whatever...

One day I just woke up feeling that I need to get a DSLR. Yup... you've heard it right. This analogue, old school, vintage camera lover is set to join the "other side". But please don't get me wrong, I still love the smell of film and the gritty mechanical parts of an analogue cam. Being the sentimental person that I am, even though I have limited budget the thought of selling my old cams is something that I just can't bear. I feel like they have been a part of me and my long journey in becoming a photographer of sorts and I am proud that I took that bumpy road.

Here I am, ready to take my skills to the next level. If you're wondering what camera I'll be buying, after much thought and deliberation I've decided that I'll go with the Canon 450D. It's a pricier than other entry level DSLR but I feel that I'm not in the "entry level" market anymore. I want to invest in my craft and by so doing I'll have to go with a camera that will give me more artistic freedom in terms of features and capabilities.

Hopefully, I get to post pictures from my future DSLR soon. I can't wait.
