I can't believe it!!!
it's a Canon eos 1000d
No more taking pics with my crappy (more than 8 years old!) point-and-shoot camera (or borrowing Andreas' Dad's).
Those of you that know me IRL especially are probably thinking:"but... they are so poor" "how can she afford it??"
Okay let me get you the story behind everything. About two years ago I took a job in the midst of me working super hard with a lot of other things, I figured it would be worth working my ass off since I could make enough extra money to finally buy the camera I've been wanting (and needing for work even).
I did the work and even got sick for a couple of weeks because I worked myself out...but the money never came.
After A LOT
of trouble, and like 3000 phonecalls I finally got my money!
..but things are so tight right now so even though they where always intended for the camera I just could not see how I could possibly use them for that.
A while ago I saw that they had "my camera" 1500 kr (~210 USD) cheaper than the cheapest place I've found (even compared to e-bay), as a christmas special. But I just couldn't do it. Andreas and I even fought about it! When I was completely in tears Andreas just said "I'm gonna go and order that camera, you worked for it and thats the end of this discussion".
he is too wonderful. ..
I am glad he did though, I am so
even though I know it's for work too, I just couldn't justify using all that money on something just to myself.
I'm so lucky to have Andreas
It's a pretty cheap camera for the pro photographer but it's JUST what I
need. I spent months looking through reviews to find the PERFECT one for me. In time I will invest in lenses etc. (And when I feel really rich I can upgrade to a better canon camera and still have use for all extra stuff I have invested in)
