    And its a beaut! I picked up the Sony A350 DSLR. I had wanted to go with the Canon Xsi, but my wife liked the idea of live view, and I liked the idea of Image stabilization in the body instead of lens. Anyways, I've never owned an slr, so I have alot to learn. Mel actually starts a photography course tomorrow, so hopefully we'll have some great pics in the future. In the meantime, heres some we took in auto mode...

    yeah, but if you read any reviews, the live view pretty much sucks on anything other than the sony's. I'll never use it anyways, lol.
