I recently treated myself to the canon 600d and can't believe how amazing it is. I made do with my lumix camera for a long time, hoping a fairy would leave a swanky new camera under my pillow. Finally I realized that wasn't going to happen, so I had no choice but to go out and treat myself. There is so much to learn and I'm definitely having lots of fun snapping away. I'm loving playing around in black and white and pretty chuffed with the details on the blue tits and bumble bee. This is definitely money well spent!
