My new toy

I have started down the worrying path towards DSLR geekdom.  I bit the bullet and bought myself the Canon EOS350D.  And a 18-55mm lense.  I am reliably informed I need a 50mm f1.8 so that is next on the list along with a macro lense.  For now I am delighted just to play and with the quality of shots an idiot like me can get round the flat this evening.

I am a very happy man.


  1. Your photos, past and present have been amazing. Looking forward to seeing what your new toy can do for you.

  2. Hi Jim,

    Congrats on you new toy! The 50 f1.8 is a nice lens and best of all, it’s cheap to buy. It may be quite slow to focus on the 350d, though. Also, I find it is a bit “long” for taking pictures indoors and I’m personally looking for a nice low-light prime in the 28 to 35mm range.

    Anyway, the images on your blog have been impressive and I look forward to seeing what you can do with this new baby!
