First hands-on with Canon 7D

After getting the new Camera, dint get much chance (actually, this is the first weekend with new camera). was getting to know about the camera by watching tutorial videos and other sites. Though was trying to understand about the camera, but nothing beats trying it out on-field. since my previous plan for today got cancelled, had decided to take hands-on with the camera in field. so, as the most feasible and favorite place,  went to Lalbagh today morning. 

Since this time it was more about trying out the camera, than focusing on the specific subjects (birds), tried clicking on everything which can give challenge in setting up the camera with proper settings. so, for a change, this time tried to click on the most common birds seen around, including common crow, common myna, common dove, etc. (And thought, as Mr. Alwin Davids wanted, will upload these pics for his satisfaction ;) ) 

Apart from these, also tried clicking on few pics of other things there. on the whole, spent around 4 hours there. and got little comfortable with the camera, but one thing i realized was that, its going to take lot more time than i thought , to get me in the same comfortable level as how comfortable i'm with Canon 1000D. And, every control has changed when compared with that of Canon 1000D (except the shutter button ;) , and lot more controls also got added.

Me still trying to get used to this new gadget. Hopefully, soon.
