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.

I love it! It’s so clear it looks 3D! Mike, along with Avatar and the rest of hollywood, why don’t you make your website 3D?
I’m on it!
Now onto buying piles of extra stuff for the camera! Can’t wait until you get something to connect it to your telescope.
Funny you mention that. I’m already looking for adapters!
Mike D, I will remember this thread the next time you give me trouble about wanting to spend $1 on a McChicken.
On the $1 menu, McDouble > McChicken.
Yes, but I can pretend McChickens are healthier.
As someone who has a PhD in McChickenology, let me bring to your attention the perfect McDonald’s dollar menu combination: 2 McChicken’s and 1 McDouble. The proper way to eat them is to first eat one McChicken, then the McDouble, finally followed up by the last McChicken. Think of the second McChicken as a chaser to all the grease that resides in your mouth after eating the McDouble. What I do not recommend (even though it may sound awesome) is to buy 5 McChickens. You WILL feel terrible after eating them.
For his willingness to try every statistical combination within the dollar menu and report the results, Shaun L deserves a nomination for Best Comment of 2010.
In related news, the onion rings on the Burger King menu trump any $1 McDonalds anything. (Also, it should be said that I only eat fast food maybe three times a year, despite how much I love it…)
