My new Toy!

(I think this deserves a whole new section in my blog!)

So, Yesterday morning, I finally managed to get myself the toy I've wanted for some time - a Canon EOS 20D Digital SLR. I've played with a couple of these really neat devices before (thanks Michael!), and I've had GTE ever since.

I'd also played with a 300D in the past, but it would be silly to purchase that now, with the new 350D on the market. When I checked out the 350D a month or two ago, I just could not come to terms with the overly plastic feel.. it just wasn't heavy enough for an SLR!

Anyway, I've been having some good fun, although the 18-55mm EF-S lens in the kit is definitely pretty limiting, but it appears to be adequate to start with - but I couldn't help myself - Today I was in the store again, and ended up buying a second hand 90-300mm EF lens.. now, that one is FUN!

So, I haven't done a whole lot of shooting yet, but I've taken a couple which are currently up on the LCA2006 website being used as in a random rotation for the left hand header image. Look for the modern building (Otago uni's Information Services Building), and the night shot of the Town Hall.
