(I’ve blatantly stolen the idea for the December contest from QueerJoe, who had a similar contest . . . last spring, I think.)
WendyKnits presents . . .

Yesterday I bought a new camera! This.
I did mention that I got a whopping big performance bonus at work recently.
I am beside myself with joy. I own a traditional film Canon EOS Rebel SLR camera, and this digital version of it is very similar in operation. Also, the lenses from the traditional SLR camera fit the digital! So I can use my incredibly expensive zoom lens with my new toy! Woo-hoo.

These two photos were taken in the same location, same time, same light. In my photo editing software I cropped and reduced them in size, and compressed them exactly the same amount.
The color on the top photo, taken with the new camera, is near perfect — unretouched.
The bottom photo taken with the old camera is lightened up considerably because it was so dark. The color is way off.
The photos were taken in far-from-perfect conditions, so I’ll get better results with better light.

And of course, I took several shots of Miss Lucy.
These were taken with the flash and Lucy was moving in all three photos, grooming herself. Look Ma, no blur!
