it is - I just hate it. Its not as good a quality as the Fuji S2. Surely I must be doing something wrong. I mean, its a Canon for crying out loud, its meant to be the mutts nuts. I took my new "baby" to a photo shoot in Darlington at the weekend and snapped about 10 pictures before I decided I really hated it.
Fortch for me, I brought my trusty standby Fuji and took some of these of Caitlin and family at the shoot. I have a whole bunch like these plus many other family pictures that came out so beautifully. I got meet Emma and her husband's family who welcomed me with a really delicious cup of tea. I had to ask what it was and they replied it was Earl Grey. Wooooo, get me drinking Earl Grey. I tried is years ago and thought it was rank - how my tastebuds have changed. Now a packet of Twinings has landed in my Monday shopping trolley and I am in Earl Grey heaven.
This weekend, I also got snaps of my family at my sisters little boy's (Harrison) christening. My cousin Emily and Marybeth are stunningly good looking as well as their mum, Janet (my wubbly auntie) and finally one of me, my sis , my bro and mum and dad. This is a very special photo as we are rarely all together at once but I cant uplaod it becuase my sister needs to give me permish to do so. Plus I have various pictures of the day to share with you. I love family get togethers, even if there are moments where things can go a bit wobbly in the middle. We all know what that is like, right?
I came home last night to watch Prime Suspect - how long have we bloody well waited for this? I was getting really into it when I got a call at about 10pm. Automatically I assume its bad news as we NEVER get calls so late. And it was bad news. Anita asked if I could collect her from the airport as she has had to come over earlier than expected to see Jo ward - who is very very poorly right now. I know some of you know her and if you do, could you jot a few messages down in my comments (below) and Ill print them out in a little thingy that I am making her. I have some messages from the girls on the "Pad" but more would make her feel extra spesh. Cos thats what she is. Spesh xx
So today? Im ringing the Canon boys to try an ascertain why I hate my camera and its going back in favour of a Nikon D200 if they don't make me fall in love it. :(
The firm where I bought it want me to send it back for testing but how do you explain you dont want it cos you think its crap? Are you allowed as a consumer to do that?
Cal - you know - CAL. You win the goodies babes. Your infectious humour has me dying in my pants with laughter. Truly!!
And also. I have a massive prize to give away soon. Who wants to win a free photoshoot (obv in Wigan cos knowing my luck you will win and you will live in Stornaway!!!) Am willing to drive half an hour out of Wigan, anything more than that - im sure we can come to an agreement. And I wont be bringing Bad Boy Canon Stink Pants
