I got a new camera this weekend and I'm seriously in love. I've been dreaming about getting a DSLR for months now and it was completely worth the wait. I didn't quite have the finances for it yet but my awesome Dad agreed to buy it and let me pay him back.
It's a Canon Rebel EOS T2i . I bought it together with an 18-55mm lens as a part of this package.
Needless to say, I was snapping pictures all weekend long. You know, pretending to be an artsy photographer...

Previously, I had been using the Nikon Coolpix S8100. Which I must say is truly a great camera. If you're just wanting a simple digital camera that takes great pictures than I would absolutely recommend it.
I've snapped some great shots with the Nikon but sometimes it would take 5 or more blurry shots to get there. Here are some of my favorite pictures taken with my Nikon:

The Nikon has served me pretty well up until now but it was time for the upgrade. The Canon gives me the crisp, clear shot I'm looking for every time.
Any recommendations of How-to DSLR camera books would be greatly appreciated. I've got a lot to learn about all the different settings.
Have a great day!
