    50D-Open Box-Charge-Focus-Press

    Well, some may have seen today I bought my 50D. Charged it in the office. Had to work late so drive in the drive way, had a quick cuppa with the missus and out of the box, battery in, lens on and with a quick set to manual, which took me a few minutes to work out in view of the different control to the 400 snapped a couple of quick pics at what ever was within shooting distance - phew! that feels good.
    Followed on with some shots of the 400D for the classified too.

    If this rough and ready snap is any indication of what I can expect from my 50D with good glass I am over the moon and can't wait to start working the sucker tomorrow. 15 mins in the hand and already I am starting to feel this is one sweet camera.

    Congrats on the purchase mate, it'll definitely keep up, but just watch that hard drive space disappear.

    Lol, that is for sure Allann. I have shot in RAW for a while now and almost fell of the chair when I seen the file size. Better go and buy that 1Tb drive I seen :-)

    Hi Shelley, yes I have to admit it was really very different to my 400d. I really did enjoy the 400 but was time move up. Tomorrow will be a very interesting day as I ease into the camera.
