Oooh! I love surprises!

Keep us informed??
I'm sure we will hear from her after delivery.......I wanted it to get there in a flash.....but it didn't happen that way. I don't do much shipping, so I am not too familiar with shipping rules, and our USPS is not all that great anyhow. They seem to be a little hesitant at helping customers many times. They argue over addresses that you know are right and other little jabs that make your visit less than enjoyable.

The main thing is that she is getting a great package of fine equipment and will be fully equipped to enter the digital camera age!

Regards!

I wonder what the camera would look like when it arrived if it had a squirrel in the package as well.

Well it may not have gotten here in a flash but it did get here with a flash. Great addition totally unnecessary but very appreciated. Homework has started with reading the manual. Hopefully the weather is good tomorrow and we can get some shooting in and post some photos.
Thank you again

You are welcome! The 360 flash, as you can tell, is like new...I seldom used it. It will come in handy for her on many occasions.
Do post some photos, we would love to hear...and see...some of her first adventures!

You were lucky.....the box was small and Otis did try to cram in a blind orphan squirrel but just couldn't squeeze him in there!

Regards!

She is lovely! Gee...that looks a lot like my K5??? I hope she is having fun learning it and we will all look forward to some of her first shots. We are not going to pick on her, she has no worry.....Otis would not allow it, but we are all nice guys anyhow!

Did she get my enclosed note? Otis was against sending the note, he said if she just reads the manual a few minutes she will be better than I am.

Regards!

The EXIF data is with the picture although the time is wrong. K-50 with DA 50 1.8 "plastic fantastic" @ Golden hour. It's not always what you use it's when you use it.
