I am both sad and happy. Sad that my first Canon SLR died in France...Happy to get the new Canon 7D which does both great photos and HD video too. Now the fun begins as I learn all the new features and buttons. I really need to find a good photography course...I love taking pictures, have the right tools, now need the skills to take my photography to the next level. I just ordered some books to get me started while I find the right course to take.
