:PHOTOGRAPHY: New camera on the way...

Look what I've got on the way...

I will soon officially be the proud owner of a Canon T1i!!

My Canon S3 IS has treated me well and I feel that it's given me some great photos over the last few years, but all along I knew that eventually I wanted to upgrade to a digital SLR eventually.

It has never been mega pixels I was's been greater control over things like depth of field and quality of my shots in low-light situations.

I was already REALLY feeling a major itch lately, but couldn't quite get myself to make the purchase. But I've been saving for awhile and got some cash for Christmas, so I decided it was time.

Plus, my sister-in-law got a Canon T2i from her hubby for Christmas and I was absolutely GREEN with envy!

So, soon, I'll have some learning to do in order to use this camera to its fullest, but I couldn't be more excited.

I realize this is just the beginning. Now I have the camera, but there are an almost endless number of accessories to go along with digital SLR's.

So, I'm sure that some of you beat me to this punch and already have a digital SLR and I'm hoping that you'll be willing to 'educate' me.

What would you consider to be the most important accessories to go along with a camera such as this? Which do you consider absolutely necessary and which are simply a nice convenience?

I can't wait to hear your thoughts!!
