So, what camera did I buy?
The Sony A77!
Check out this review for lots of info!
We had to order the camera in, due to flooding in Thailand.
The camera has been back-ordered for a while,
and I kept checking everywhere for it!
Finally, someone had one in a warehouse in Kansas City.
They shipped it out to me likity-split.
The funnest part about the experience?
The camera came in today,
so they called and I told them when I'd be there.
Apparently, the photogs and workers waited all day...
just so they could see what it looked like out of the box.
One even asked if he could hold it....hilarious.
[They didn't want to take it out of the box b/c it was a customer's. Isn't that nice?]
Its a good feeling when professionals tell you
that they approve of your choice.
And, when they say they would switch to Sony
if they weren't so invested.
[Hello, I would never switch if I was invested in a brand, but that's b/c I'm cheap]
They had my battery charged,
so when they took the camera out to put the battery in for me,
I exclaimed, "Oh, its so pretty!"
5 minutes later,
a photog dude walked over and said the same thing.
Then, I didn't feel so dumb.
So, all in all,
I really love the camera.
I've had it for all of an hour,
and I just think I'll read the instruction manual tonight.
If you don't love the camera,
keep it to yourself.
I'm still trying to have a Sony A77 parade,
so no rain, please.
Besides, its just good manners.
