Well...after a few shipping delays, I finally got my new 300D. Now mind you, this is my first SLR camera, and my first attempts at "real" photography...with a "real" camera. I'm still getting used to it, and learning....but I thought I'd take it for a small test drive. And took my first pic.... Nothing special....just a flower....but I was really impressed with the quality. Can't wait to develop my skills, and start taking some really nice shots!
