Thoughts and Ideals
LifeHappy New Year! I hope 2010 is a blessed year for all of you, my friends. Make beautiful art!
ArtSomething wonderful has happened! For Christmas, my father gifted me his Minolta XD-5, an older-generation SLR (35mm film). Besides two lenses, it also has an auto-winder and an autoflash -- "Auto 320-X" -- which, amazingly, works with my Canon Rebel XSi. Of course I still have to set the flash manually, which is going to take a good deal of experimentation to get accustomed to its features and abilities. Needless to say, I'm excited. And very grateful -- the camera my father gave me was also a gift from his father, who passed recently. It holds significant sentimental value for both of us, but definitely him more than I. I'm excited to experiment with these two cameras.

Happy -late- New Year to you too! I'm excited to hear about this new camera. Now let me play with your other one as you experiment!
Sure! You can take the comparison photographs, to see the differences between the two cameras.
Happy new years too even though you probably heard me squeaking on the other end of the line lol.
Happy New Year to you as well (:
