    So here are a couple of snaps that I took with "My New Toy" (i.e. my combined birthday-Christmas-present which I already received for my birthday yesterday but which will last till - and hopefully MUCH LONGER THAN - Christmas), my new Canon EOS350D (Yay!) :D

    My other much liked toy! I will still use this one, too!

    Close-up of the flowers that my husband brought me for my birthday, too (I'm still not all happy with the whitebalance --- there's a lot of "Reading-The-Manual" lying ahead of me :roll: )

    And three pics of the biscuit-house that my daughter built yesterday.
    All five photos taken without flash and in normal house lights, camera still set to fully automatic :oops: --- I shall learn about manual operations in the course of time! I promise! I might even start reading the manual sooner than in about 6 months from now (I took that long in finally finding my way into using the Powershot mostly manually).

    Yes, that would have been almost perfect, had she not detected something (someone - i.e. someothercat?) in the garden (behind me) and had she not felt like she'd have to run to the verandah door therefore. So, no matter how much faster this new camera releases as opposed to the little one, she was already running out of the focus (which is where there are her front legs, if you look closely) - and I assume aperture was wide open to give me short enough time (all automatic it was, as I already told you), so she too soon was gone from the focus. Ah well. I do like her expression, though. Both show her face when she is very alert and has just seen something that she wants to explore.

    I think it is called Canon Rebel XT in the States...
