So due to being fed up with my previous camera, I got myself a new Canon EOS 450D digital SLR camera last week, and needless to say, I’m really really quite impressed.

I’ve taken it out for a few test runs over the past week, and am really quite impressed with the results. To start out my lens collection, I’ve used some of my Dad’s old FD-mount lenses via use of an adaptor1 (including an f/3.3 200mm prime and an f/5.6 75-300mm zoom, for those of you who are at all interested), which has afforded some good opportunities for interesting photos:

I’m really looking forward to LCA as an opportunity to give it a really thorough workout — I expect that I’ll take a ludicrous amount of photos as an opportunity to test the camera in more varied circumstances. More as they come!
