another unedited evening.

Tuesday, May 7, 2013

In the spirit of fairness, Gabe skipped his 7 o'clock {ish} bedtime to join Saige and I on another camera-in-hand evening stroll

He's certainly not the easiest muse to practice on, but he may be one of the cutest.

After 30 minutes of playing around, my brand spanking new batteries d.i.e.d!! and I was this close [picture my thumb and pointer almost touching] to throwing my piece of sh*t camera in the garbage.

I ranted and raved to Trev [for the umpteenth time] and he figures it's time I get new camera *cue fist pumps*. I've been holding off on upgrading namely because I wanted to prove to myself that I understood manual mode and could consistently nail shots before going and investing money in new equipment. Well I'm over that fantasy; the Pentax battery problem is freaking frustrating that it won't survive any more failed 'photo shoots'. Not only does the bloody thing die right before and/or in the middle of important moments (ie. Saige's Christmas pageant and Gabe's first steps), but I've spent wasted literally hundreds of dollars on every single battery type known to man {rechargeable and non}. I don't even bother taking it with us anymore on fun outings/events, it's truly that unreliable.

My advice, never ever buy a Pentax K-x [unless you want to buy mine - hardy-har] and now that I'm in the market for a new camera, I would love recommendations...

which brand [Nikon vs. Canon]? and which lens(es)?

Oh and just so we're clear, I'm a hobbyist photographer {even that's a stretch} and I'm not a millionaire so my budget is approximately $2000 {inclusive}.

While I'm not opposed to buying used, I require a battery pack option as I hope to never see another double A in my life.

Let the hunt begin!

Your pictures are fab!!! You go momma! I have a canon 60D and 50 mm lens. Just ordered an 85 mm. Love my camera!! All that would come under your budget! Hope that helps!

I am by no means an expert but I love my Canon Rebel!

And that Gabe is the cutest little redhead ever, is it weird that I want to run my fingers through his hair? haha. And good job getting out there and getting some awesome snaps. I've been trying (unsuccessfully) to do this myself.

I love my canon rebel t3i for my beginner attempts photography. The good news is recently the t5i came out so the t3i's are going for a great price right now! Good luck on your search.

I have to be devils advocate here and mention my Nikon D7000 is a dream. If only I knew how to take good ones ;)

That first shot [as well as basically all of them!} is amazing by the way. AMAZING!

I'm going to vote Nikon because that's what I use, but really - I have no other reason why. I've heard good things about the Canon Rebel. As for glass, I rarely take my 50mm lens off. Obviously it's not great for distance shots, but let's be real - the only thing I take photo's of is Kale and he's barely ever more than three feet away from me.
