So we did it.. we made the purchase.. I finally have a DSLR YAY.. my new best friend :) I know I originally said I was going to buy a Canon.. but Nikon was offering an awesome bundle deal & well I couldn't refuse plus the Canon & Nikon are both very nice camera's. So we ended up purchasing the Nikon D3100 which came with a nice camera bag & an extra lens. I am so excited to start capturing images with this new friend of mine YAY!!
