Got a new lens for my camera for Chanukah… Got the Canon 75mm – 300mm F3.5-5.6 IS USM lens… It’s pretty neat how the Image Stabalizer works. I have yet to get out to really play with it. I will try to utilize it this weekend if I get scheduled at the radio station, or while I’m upstate visiting Dave.
Friday, I have to try to do some holiday shopping…Yes, Chanukah started yesterday and the only present I had was my brother’s and thats only because it was a joint present bewteen me and my parents…I built him a pc. It’s a pretty sweet system considering it cost under $500
Athlon XP 2600, 512 MB DDR Ram, 128 MB nVidia GeForce MX 4000 Graphics, 80 GB SATA HDD, 2x Firewire Ports, 6x USB Ports Dual NICs, Dolby Surround Sound, Dual Layer DVD Burner… Not bad for under $500. The same system (or one comparable) would go for about $1000 in stores.
I even spent a few extra bucks and got some neon accent lighting (complimented by the large window on the side of the case.
Anyways… I need to do some shopping this weekend. Anyone have any ideas on what I can get my parents?
