It was soooo hard deciding which one to get. We wanted to get one to take nice pictures of the baby, especially when it starts moving around a lot...as the shutter lag on a DSLR is much, much improved from our little point and shoot. And honestly, the shutter lag on that sweet little camera has been a point of insanity for many years now. :)
So what to get? Our price range limited options considerably, and lead me to debate between a Nikon, and a Canon. I nearly went with the more expensive Nikon. I was so close...but I've always been a Canon girl. Every digital camera I've owned (3 so far) has been a Canon, and I've loved them all (despite the shutter lag). It seemed like a safe bet to keep with Canon.
I'm still playing with it and learning it's tricks and gadgetry, but it's sure been fun. And I can't wait until I have a new subject to try it out on some more. :)
