Fun fact: This is MikeDiDonato.com’s 4000th post.
During my recent visit to Tom and Mykal’s, I was reminded by Mykal’s beautiful new camera that even after months of deep consideration I still lacked a high quality digital camera. As Mykal noted in yesterday’s comments, I have finally procured said toy.
I started the purchasing process by combing through internet forums and talking to camera enthusiasts. Once I settled into my decision, it was simply deciding to whom I should give my dollars. Originally, my plan was to purchase used from FredMiranda.com – but after days of frustrated refreshing and a seller cancellation, I abandoned the lure of tax-free shopping and visited a camera store so I could leave with something in my hands.
My final choice was a Canon Rebel T2i. The Rebel does a great job of providing photography options for typical (read: clueless) users like myself. It has both gentle idiot-proof auto settings and thorny manual modes. The T2i is noteworthy too in that it adds 1080p video to its ensemble.
As we wrestle with the uncomfortable newness of the new MikeDiDonato.com layout, take solace in the fact that the quality of my multimedia is on the rise.
