heart beat, stay heavy

Hi guys!

Oh I'm freaking out because of my camera again! Look at these photos, I mean how crappy the quality is! My cam, a Samsung S1060, has been a faithful companion for the last 3 years and was very patient with me and it survived all my moments of clumsiness when it fell to the ground a thousand times, BUT God it freaks me out.
It can actually take good pictures with the right light conditions, but it tends to overexpose eventhough I always adjust it to the light conditions manually.

Well, finally the time has come to put the Samsung into retirement. Of course I'll still keep it and I'll also use it from time to time, but next week it's going to be replaced by a DSLR.

♥ cardi, blouse & skirt: h&m ♥ belt: topshop via ebay ♥ necklace & tights: accessorize ♥ legwarmers: gift from a friend ♥ boots: vintage via ebay ♥

Tomorrow I'll take all the money I got for Christmas, pay it into my account and order this baby from Amazon. And I'll also order a coffee machine, so I can drink one cup after the other next month when it's exam time.
Concerning the camera I've red lots and lots of reviews and product description, compared prices, compared brands and whatnot and finally came to the decision that the Canon EOS Rebel XS seems to be a good buy. It's comparatively low priced, said to be a good cam for DSLR-noobs like me, easy to handle, provides some extra functions for when you want to deepen your knowledge about photography and it's small and lightweight.
Anyone of you has experience with the Canon EOS Rebel XS (1000D) and can tell me if it's a good choice?
I can't wait to try it out. At a pinch I can still send it back.

♥ necklace & tights both from the fabulous Accessorize sale :) ♥

Okay, enough camera bla bla for today. It's cold and it's raining outside and I'm hungry, so it's time to curl up on the sofa with some snacks and a movie. Oh by the way thanks a lot for all the movie recommendations from Tuesday, I added them to my movie-list :)

Have a lovely day!

  9. Ohje soviel Geld auf einmal ausgeben schmerzt doch immer ein bisschen. Ich weiß noch als ich meinen Laptop gekauft habe und 800€ auf einmal weg waren. Aber es lohnt sich ja meistens, wenn man sich vorm Einkauf gut informiert.

  17. hey, das ist ja aufregend, dass du eine Spiegelreflex bestellst! Du wirst bestimmt einen riesigen Unterschied bei deinen Fotos bemerken!!
    mensch, hast du ein gutes Gedächtnis, dass du das noch weißt. :) Wir waren in den Ferien dort um ein bisschen rumzulaufen und die Wohnheime anzuschauen. Wir haben bei ein paar Leuten geklingelt, die uns erstaunlicherweise reingelassen haben und uns die Küche und so gezeigt haben. Ich würde übelst gerne im Oktober dann anfangen dort zu studieren.
