Camera Rental, The Mark IV

Mr. Rogue and I are thinking about purchasing a new camera body for our anniversary present to each other (which is in a month and a half). This is a complete professional body, which means that the default dials are not there, the camera has to be programmed to do what you want manually. No easy feat for sure!

We purchased our first SLR (a 50d) in January 2009, a little over two and a half years ago, we also bought the second SLR (a 7d) a year ago. It has been a long road to acquire the knowledge needed to work this professional camera but we both feel that we are ready to move to the last and final step. HURAH!

However before purchasing this expensive piece of equipment we decided to rent it for the week to test it out and make sure that we are not getting in over our heads. Today was our first day and Ms. Bambi was a willing model. Of course the real test will be when I take it birding later this week, for now it is just trying to wrap my head around working a whole new piece of complicated equipment; we are having so much fun!
