Check out the size of my Nikon S630 point and shoot that I've been using compared to the 
Canon EOS 600D, the lens is bigger than the Nikon LOL

Well I survived my first week using my NEW BABY Canon EOS 600D,
this will be its acronym CE6D

To say this camera is overwhelming is an understatement, seriously and honestly all the mothers out there will relate when I say its like having a new baby. Everything is unexpected.
Even though the weekend prior to taking receipt of the camera,
I had watched 6 hours straight of DVDs going through the basics.
Have you ever smelt a new camera?
OH MY GOODNESS I was nearly drunk on it.
It's like a new car smell.
You just want to sniff and sniff and not lose that intoxicating aroma.
My nose kept imprinting on the back of the LCD screen whilst looking through the viewfinder.

Some wonderful ladies over at WOYWW have given me wonderful tips and links to photographic sites that I really appreciate, so if you're out there and watching me learn this baby and know of any links I can follow or look up, I am not afraid to say HELP!!!!

I googled and found Canberra Photographic Society which I am going to attend very gingerly and hide at the back of the class, I'll just take my Nikon and not let on that I have a REAL camera.

Here are some photography sites I am going to stalk
Kirsty Wiseman (thanks to Diane Wray)
Scott Kelby (thanks to Gunn)

and of course Mr Crafty showed me this site

You are making me drool!!! I am in the USA and looking at buying a Canon 60D here. They call them different names over here. Not sure if it would be the same as yours or not. I can't wait!! Should have it by my birthday in April.

Thanks for sharing
