| p.1 #1 · Shortest time you've owned a camera |
On Friday I decided it was finally time to upgrade from my faithful old 20D (which I've kept as backup). I was at a store to get a memory card, and in the display case next to the rack was a T3i kit with a price that I could just fit into my budget. Reports I've read say it has the same sensor as the 60D and 7D, so I figured what the heck, why not.
I used it to shoot some pics for work on Friday and Saturday.
I didn't like it. Although bigger than a bridge camera, it was just a tad too small for my long fingers, and too many functions had to be accessed via menu choices rather than buttons or control wheels. It just felt "odd."
So today (Monday) I took it back. I applied for and was approved for store credit, and I got a 7D with 28-135 IS lens on an 18-month-same-as-cash program.
So, less than four days with the T3i. What's the shortest you've owned a camera, and why?
