A bag from Hunt's? How interesting!
id: 41692
OK, a high speed 32gb SD card, sure.. some microfiber, ok.. and... a Canon EOS 70D!
id: 41693
Gotta have a good card if you're going to be taking a lot of photos
id: 41694
And I guess you can never have enough microfiber
id: 41695
Time for a good old fashioned unboxing ritual
id: 41696
The picture on the box shows a lens but I just got the body
id: 41697
More of the box..
id: 41698
Yep. It's the box. Read it if you like.
id: 41699
The box is open! And no facehuggers inside, so this is going alright so far.

Removing all the warranty cards and software and nonsense..
id: 41701
What do we have here.. a mini-USB cable, neck strap, battery charger, and battery
id: 41702
Now we're getting somewhere. Still hibernating somewhere in this bubbly cocoon is my new DSLR camera
id: 41703
Inside the bubbles was some fuzzles
id: 41704
There she is
id: 41705
Articulated screen, locking mode selector, multi-function dial, on-body LCD info screen, dual microphone..
id: 41706
This should do just fine
id: 41707
No lens, but that's fine. My lenses will be right at home there
id: 41708
Look at that articulating screen.. articulate
id: 41709
The first official photo on the 70D!
id: 41710
Hi Dad
id: 41711
Ah that's lovely
id: 41712
Let's go to Mom's house
id: 41713
Bye Dad! See you in a couple of days!
id: 41714
Isabelle was not that impressed with the new camera
id: 41715
See? Not impressed at all
id: 41716
Mom was excited but also wished she was only the only subject I had for the afternoon
id: 41717
Except.. pretty boy
id: 41718
Let's document Mom throwing out garbage
id: 41719
"Why aren't you helping meeee?"
id: 41720
Hi Mom!
id: 41721
Say cheese for the new camera!
id: 41722
Macaroni wonders what happened to all that wrapping paper
id: 41723
It's gone, Macaroni. You have to wait until next year.
id: 41724
"Having fun?"
id: 41725
The nutcrackers... they're everywhere..
id: 41726
"This is my internet face". This is a good time to point out that a lot of the stuff I write "in quote marks" is made up..
id: 41727
I kept demonstrating how fast the new camera could take photos by taking an unreasonable amount of photos
id: 41728
Isabelle has a stinkface as usual
id: 41729
Let's take a moment to honor the old camera, the Canon EOS 450D, aka EOS Rebel XSi.
id: 41730
It's been in service since August 12, 2010 (1,598 days ago) and has delivered over 13,186 photos to the website (and countless more that didn't make the cut). It's not being retired, but it's definitely the #2 driver now. Thanks, Rebel.
id: 41731
Macaroni is unsure how to feel about all of this
id: 41732
Better just retreat into the Christmas pile
id: 41733
Isabelle, should you be on the table?
id: 41734
Or the couch?
id: 41735
Macaroni can't get any peace
id: 41736
Neither can Mom
id: 41737
"What have you brought me?"
id: 41738
Isabelle has a tiny head compared to the rest of her body
id: 41739
Isabelle has a new habit of sitting right next to Mom and getting annoyed if there isn't any space
id: 41740
So creepy..
id: 41741
Let's go shopping!
id: 41742
T-shirts!
id: 41743
Creepy "street photography" of strangers!
id: 41744
Can you blame me? The 70D has a much quieter shutter and I wanted to play with it!
id: 41745
L. Ron Hubbard wrote these??
id: 41746
Let's get some domestic rugs!
id: 41747
Or mothballs. Whatever.
