New Camera! Nikon D5100 *Pic Heavy*

Hey you guys!
This post is not a review. It's actually just a post for some of the photos I've taken with me new...

NIKON D5100!

I have been wanting a DSLR camera for the longest time now and finally I have one~

As I am still quite a newbie, I decided to settle for this camera, the reviews I read on it all seemed to praise the D5100 so much too. I was torn between this camera and the Canon Rebel T3i but in the end I go this one.

My previous camera (Canon Powershot SD960 IS)

Here I come, into the world of photography! It's something that I've always admired and I take so many inspirations from many photos I've seen and it is so beautiful to me.

So I've stepped into it!

First shots:
(Dinner, the night of getting the new camera!)
My phone :3
From Red Robins:
(Calamari & Chicken Alfredo Linguine)
View from the restaurant:
Friend's cat:

Fireworks night:
There was approx 300, 000 people at the beach!!!!!!!
Actual fireworks shot, my goal was to at least get one decent shot haha the second one turned out pretty nice imo :3
And I wanted some painting with lights shots, I'd like to get some people together and write out something one day ^^

So those are some pictures I took with my new camera. There will be more coming but for now this is all, I want to try and take outfit shots with a friend of mine.. Hope it turns out well :X
haha

  41. Girrrrllll! You can so get one one day! I wanted this camera for a year, since it came out! I was crazy about it haha, comparing quality and prices and looking thousands of reviews! (ok maybe not thousands lol)
    I didn't plan on actually reviewing it, but all I can say on the video is that the quality is very nice. Very clear and captures things well and in focus, but if your main use for the camera will be for video, canon usually records better videos. But this camera is already pretty darn good and I mainly chose this one over canon because I liked the feel of it better. I do plan on making videos one day. I don't know when but when I do I will try and review it properly. Also, there are plenty of youtube videos reviewing it's video quality too :)
