I've been spending this Memorial Day at Rehobeth Beach and Assateague Island, trying out a new camera. I've been wanting a digital single lens reflex camera for a while, but until recently, using one required focusing through the view finder, which is harder for someone with eyes like mine--can't get my eyes close enough with my glasses on, and with the glasses off, everything's blurry--and yes, I know the view finder adjusts. Just not enough to correct for my eyes!. But they've finally started making DSLRs that let you sight through the screen on back. So I got one, and brought it along to my nephew's baseball tournament this weekend.
It's great for getting shots of kids in action, even from across the baseball field, but you'll have to take my word for it-- not planning to break my ban on posting pictures of the nephews and their friends. But I can share some of the other shots I took over the last couple of days. Still learning, but so far I think the new camera's a success.
