    Proud owner of Canon 7D

    I am so excited! I finally upgraded to a Canon 7D! I got it on Friday after getting a flyer on a great sale price. I have been saving for a while for one. I just didn't expect to get one this soon. But I am having such fun with it. I figured out the basics on Friday night so I knew how to shoot in manual and then took it for the photo walk yesterday. There's lots to learn but I am loving it! My favorite feature so far is I can crank up my ISO to 6400 if I need to. Love that!

    Congratulations! You are going to love the 7D.
    My husband surprised me with the 7D for my birthday last year and I *love* it.
    I was using the Rebel XT for 5 years and was frustrated with the ISO especially.
