Sooo - entering that new challenge. My original plan is the Canon EOS 500D + Canon EF 100mm 2.8L Macro IS USM but maybe I'll change that to Canon EOS 300D + Canon EF 50mm 1.8 II. (An older body that I can put in the pocket of my jacket without worrying too much and the 50mm 1.8 just in order to get it into my pocket. :D

OK, my picture chose the kit I'm using today. Quite an affordable one looking at the price you have to pay for a used Canon EOS 300D and a 50mm 1.8 II. Nothing special for the beginning - a withering rose in our garden.

And the second day...

We had a fire department "christmas party" today (that's why it's so late this day) and that was some decoration. Nothing too exciting, either. Let's hope it's getting better the next days. The 50mm 1.8 is nice for it's low light capabilities, but the 300D is not. So yes, the 500D is the better camera and the 100mm 2.8L is the better and sharper lens but at least it's a very interesting time :D

Now this photo went through so many cameras... :lol:
The history:
For my identification card I needed a biometrical shot. This one was taken with a Nikon D700 + Nikkor 3,5-5,6G. Then I wanted to show this photo to a friend (via internet) but it was before I bought my scanner so I just took a photo of my hand holding that small photo (Canon Powershot SX10 IS). Looked very funny. Now today I wasn't sure what to shoot and I got the idea I could cheat a little bit. I took my Canon EOS 33 + 100mm 2.8L Macro IS USM and put it in front of that photo and then I took the Canon EOS 300D and let it "look" through the viewfinder of the Canon EOS 33 - and that way this shot was taken.
Kinda looks like taken with a pinhole camera. :D

But it was fun indeed.

"The finger".

You know what annoys me the most about the 300D? That thing can shoot large .jpgs OR RAW-Files (not .CR2 like my 500D but .CRW) - but not both at the same time like every new camera does. Either RAW or JPG... damned.

That would be nice for the pictures indeed. Last week it was pretty cold but... well... this afternoon I could go outside wearing a polo shirt so I guess it will take a while until I can really expect snow.
Last year we had no snow until the 24th of December. But that day was so extreme we had enough snow for the next months. :D
