Well after convincing my family, I now have myself a brand spanking new digital SLR camera. I happen to now have the Canon EOS 400D Twin Lens Kit. Now once these were released these kits sold like hotcakes. I was lucky enough to find a store that had a few left in stock. Unfortunetly they only had the silver colour in stock, where as I would have preferred the black one. The salesperson said I would’ve had to order it in, but god knows how long the wait would be, plus the black one was $15 more. Settling for the silver the salesperson even did a deal for us. Original retail price at Bing Lee was $1649. Bought it today for $1436 and even got a carry bag for an extra $87. So a grand total of $1523 and that is still a lot off the retail price alone.
Although I had to make a compromise with my mum and family. Seeing how it is an expensive item this is my combined birthday, Christmas, and graduation present all in one. Not that I mind as I really don’t have anything I really wanted. Well I would also like to take some pictures right now, but I didn’t buy a CF card (Compact Flash) as I know I could buy them cheaper elsewhere. I’ll be heading out to buy one tomorrow and hopefully I’ll have mastered my new toy in preparation for Animania this coming weekend. For info and pictures of the camera, check out the link below.
But that’s not all. With my graduation ceremony only two days away, my soon to be step father bought me a suit to wear for all occasions, not just my graduation ceremony. Meaning its a $400 business suit that has been altered to fit my small self. Such is the joy of birthdays and graduating from uni~~~
