New Camera // Merry Christmas To ME!!!

Do you see that? Do you see that beautiful thing I am holding in my hands??! I got a new camera! It arrived in the mail tonight and I am just so excited, so naturally I decided it deserved a blog post of its own. I love my first camera, a Nikon D3000, but after 5 years of adventures and love, it was really slowing down. I've been considering investing in a new camera for a year or so now, and after a lot of research and some Black Friday sales on Amazon, I settled on the Nikon D7000. I opted to purchase just the body since I already own the lenses that come in the kit option, which made it much more affordable and justifiable.nikon, new camera, dslr, d7000, merry christmas
It is a really great upgrade for me (two levels higher than my D3000) and should be something I can grow with for quite a while. It is definitely bigger and a bit heavier than my other camera, but it just feels so nice in my hands. Ahhh!!! I really can't wait to get out and use it! There are going to be many more photo adventures happening from now on :)

I am so glad I decided to purchase it to have during the holiday season and that I will be able to take it along on our trips to San Diego and Seattle happening over the next month. Woohooo!

A camera is definitely a financial investment, but I decided that it is important to invest in my passions and to believe in myself. I know that I will never regret giving myself opportunities like this.

So, who wants to have a photo shoot? :D


P.S. Please excuse my makeup-less face and crazy hair haha. It has been a long week.

Cool cam!
I can't wait to see the difference it makes in your photos!

I'm so jealous! I've have the Nikon d3000 since 2010 and have been wanting the d7000 for over a year now. My husband thinks it's too much money, but I'm secretly in the process of saving for it! I can't wait to have it! :)

Beautiful piece of machinery! Can't wait to see what beautiful images you produce with that beast! We'll see if Santa brings me a new camera this year.... ;)

Jess said...

YEAH!! I am so, SO happy! Hopefully Santa will be on his A-game :)

Jess said...

Thanks! Me too! I think it will take some adjusting, but I am sure the results will be great!

The D3000 is a great camera to learn on and mine was so, so good to me! I never had any problems and I love it dearly. BUT, it was time to move on to bigger and better things. If you buy just the body, the D7000 is surprisingly affordable for the level camera it is! I didn't realize that until just recently, so that's why I decided to bite the bullet and do it! So glad I did! Hopefully you will get to have it soon :) Good luck with your saving!!

Yes! I shot with it a bit today and I LOVE it! So happy I decided to buy it! It also takes video (which my other camera did not), so that is fun to play with as well. I may start making little videos to share here too :)

Jess said...

amen. Haven't regretted my recent upgrate yet.
taking videos of canon has been worth every second. Can't wait to see all your new work!!!

Jess said...

up with the videos. I've been crazy digging that capability.

Jess said...

Yay! Congrats and Happy Holidays! :-) Excited to see your new pictures from the trips!

Jess said...

Jess said...

Jess said...
