Oh Shoot!!

I have this bad boy on it's way to me! Hubby bought me my first SLR!! yay!!

Nikon 12.3MP D5000 Digital SLR Camera with Lens, Bag, Extra VR 55-200mm Lens

My little Sony Cybershot crapped out on me and I have been wanting a new (much nicer) one for awhile now. I thought this would be a good starter camera. I did lots of research and got lots of help from the hubby and friends trying to decide between a Canon or Nikon. I heard the Nikon was a bit more user-friendly and great for beginners. After reading more than 200 reviews, I knew this was the one I wanted!! I am soooo excited!! Eeeek!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!!
Happy Halloween!! I'll be back with Halloween pictures soon :)

What kind of camera do you use?? Do Love it?



  1. How Exiting!!! I have also been using a sony cybershot for the last year or two, but very recently bought my boyfriends old Nikon D40x SLR off him (because he upgraded) I looove it! I havn't had much chance to take lots of pics with it yet, but have re-done some Etsy photos and Looove using the SLR! I'm so exited for you! :D

  2. Yay! Can't wait to see your fancy new pictures!

  3. YAY!! Welcome to the Nikon fan club! :) The 55-200mm lens is awesome - but be warned, you can't be really close up to things (like kids) with it. It's better for taking things from farther away and zooming in. :)

  4. UUhh :D I have that exact same camera too! and I love it! :)


  5. I'm thinking of getting a SLR too! Let us know how you like it! :)

  6. i use the D3000 and so far i love it. i went through the decision of cannon vs. nikon and chose nikon because it seems like a sturdier camera. i hope you love yours!

  7. I've taken photography classes, and LOVE my manual 35mm film camera. Its a Pentax, just NOT very practical for the type of pictures I take these days. My mom bought me a digital Fuji camera a few years ago. Its been on the fritz the last couple of weeks, so I'm gonna need to upgrade. I SO want a DSLR! You're so lucky! :)

  8. I hope you enjoy your new camera. I know you have been waiting long enough to get it. You were even nice enough to let me get my TV instead of getting your camera earlier this year. Love you and cant wait to come home.

  9. I've been wanting an SLR camera! It's one of my goals for this year to buy one. I have been looking at this exact same one! Let me know how you like it!

  10. Oh yay! You are going to love it.
    Also, you may want to look into getting a flash for your hot shoe to bounce off a wall (to make AMAZING product shots for your Etsy!)
    I can't wait to see your photos with it!

  11. is this an early Christmas present? If not, it should be, enough of the You can spoil me at the craft fair next Sat!! Can't believe I will be there in 5 days!!! yea!!

  12. Congratualtions, you will love it! :)
