Honestly, I have no idea what the hell he thought he was doing when he started hopping on one leg for me. None the less, I got the photo and that’s all that really matters, right? This is another taken with my Panny p & s. I reluctantly tried out my new Canon T2i at a pal’s place last night with expected results — hopelessly crappy shots. I’m not worried about it since without reading the manual that’s about all I can expect. Once I get the controls figured out I’ll be fine. One thing that’s going to be difficult to get used to is not being able to evaluate the shot before taking it. When I look through the viewfinder I have no idea if the shot’s going to come out properly exposed. With the LCD display on the point & shoot that was never a problem. Most of my shots last night came out way over exposed. Not sure why. Again, not worried about it. Not that I want to, but I can’t even show a sample because when I plug the camera into my computer nothing happens. I try to get my software to speak to the camera without success. Again, totally expected since I have not read the manual. For me, the lesson is simple: “Playing” around with a complicated piece of technology prior to learning how to use it is a monumental waste of time and hugely frustrating, especially when you know better. Of course your mileage may vary. 🙂 Happy Saturday!
