Going from 8MP to 18MP is a huge jump and the learning curve is not too bad. I know that the amount of MP should not be the only deciding factor for choosing a camera. There are so many new things about this camera that is simply exciting. Higher resolutions, HD video, higher capacity for ISO and more. I probably will not be shooting much video as we hope to have a separate camera for it but it is a nice feature.
Choosing a new camera is never an easy task but with a bit of research, it was not too painful. I love the Rebel series from Canon and decided to stick with it. The internet is amazing for any type of research and digital cameras are included. I looked at the cameras in the promotion for free tax and compared those but did not think I needed the most expensive.
I do not want to spend tons of money on a new camera that may take way too long to figure out. The best equipment does not necessarily mean the best photos, but then again, "best" is always subjective. I have seen amazing photos that have been taken with "point and shoot" or even disposable cameras.
A new camera means learning or re-learning how to do some basic things. The manuals are very important and should be read but if you are like me, reading only goes so far. I am an artist at heart and must get out to practice. I will be heading out today for my first, of many, photo excursions.
