Compacting faux pas in the biggest way imagineable
I have been longing for a digital SLR camera for as long as I can remember. I love to take pictures and I know that I could learn to take good ones with a really excellent camera.
I have been looking at the camera I want for a long time, it is the Nikon D80, and I often go down to our local Ritz Camera store to look at it and to dream. It is a very expensive camera, and I would never take a purchase like this lightly, but from all the research I have done I think it will give me many years of good picture taking.
I have been saving money for a while now, and have quite a lot put away from birthdays etc. So, imagine my surprise as I perused the Ritz camera website last night only to see my dream camera with the lens I want reduced by $130, with free shipping and tax. It didn't take me long to make the purchase and I will soon be the proud owner of a this
I know this is a total breach of my compacting pledge in the biggest way possible. It is however also a once in a lifetime purchase that will I feel sure bring years of picture taking pleasure. I am still slightly in shock that I finally bought it so quickly after months of consideration, and it will take a few days for me to get used to the idea.
Now I just need to learn how to use it which may take me a while because I have only ever used to simplest of cameras. I am very excited!
