So many people were great to go over camera pros and cons and brand opinions with me and I went back and forth for a while, but I finally settled on the Nikon D5000. I got a great deal and a ton of bundled items from a camera shop in New York. I knew when it was shipped and had been tracking its progress like every 5 minutes! I was so excited when the UPS man showed up on Friday, that I met him on the door step before he could even knock!
I'll be figuring her out on vacation next week! YIPPEEEE!
