I've wanted a nice camera for awhile, and Charlie said I should go ahead and buy one for my birthday. It took me awhile to make the final decision on the camera I wanted, but I ultimately chose the Canon EOS Rebel T3. It arrived today and I am really excited to start using it. I read through some of the user manual and it's kind of like a foreign language to me. I think I will just be using this thing on automatic mode for now but hopefully I'll be able to get some much nicer photos.
