mine mine mineI called our local photo shop today and it's HERE! It's arrived! The new T1i is in stock and as soon as Mike gets home from PACT soccer training we are driving to town and trading in my old XT, as well as an old Nikon D60(film) camera for this new beauty. I'm hoping that I can get at least a few hundred dollars for the trade in. I've been saving for this camera for a few months and really cannot wait to bring it home to Mumma! I'd love to be a Nikon girl, but it's just not in my budget...I swoon at the shrpness of the D90 pics, but I am positive with some training I can get pretty close with my Canon!
It's good timing because I have taken a few short DSLR classes and will be taking a photoshop class tomorrow night, and of course I'm all signed up for the Pixel Fairy Princess workshop in June, and I'm in line for the RAWSII class sometime this summer.

Hopefully, by the end of the year I could be taking photos that I can be proud of. This is my new hobby, I've never really taken to anything before, but after three years of fiddling, I'm ready to get serious.
UPDATE: I went to the photo store and checked on the T1i..it seemed a bit flimsy, and after talking to the chap behind the counter, I decided what I really want is the 50D. I don't need the HD video, I have a flip, I just want a sturdy camera that will see me through the next few years! So...back to the drawing board and back to ebay so I can raise the extra cash needed for the 50D
p.s. I listed and sold my XT on ebay within 10 minutes for $100 more than the trade in value! I'm on my way to the 50D already!

Glad you are going to get what you really want. Smart move to wait.

No sense in settling for less than your true heart's desire.
