Merry Christmas To Me!

So, after much debate, I decided to upgrade. I sold my Sony HX1 to a friend and purchased a Nikon D3100! My interest in photography (as a hobby) has soared and I wanted something I can grow into and constantly learn more about. For months before I got the Sony I looked at the Nikon D5000, I knew I wanted an SLR, but ended up settling for less because I thought I wasn't ready. My Sony is really a great camera, and I will always recommend it, but I wanted more out of it than it was giving. Then I saw the recent release of the Nikon D3100 and thought- this is perfect. I got it for a good price on Amazon (plus I had a gift card)! I can't wait to start playing with it. I'm already looking up classes in my area to join to really get the full use out of it.


Merry Christmas to me :)
