Nice photography.  What kind of camera do you have?

Canon Rebel T2i. It's served me well over the years, but I'm looking at getting a newer camera.

I don't get any printer or camera unless it's Canon!  For decades their copiers in offices were the tops.  I'm looking at T5 camera basics since I don't want to spend $$$ on fancy accouterments I'll never ever use or need.  My problem is that they were cheaper during summertime and raised the price during the holidays - go figure?  I thought this was the time of year for Black Friday-Green Monday deals -- not higher prices!!!

New cameras come out closer to the middle of the year. New TVs usually come out at the beginning of the year so those holiday deals aren't really as good as they seem. It's more of getting rid of the old stock to make way for the new. 

 

That said, Costco actually has some camera deals for December, but they don't carry a huge selection.

7 week old pullet. She's complaining about getting her picture taken, not the tiny bit of snow.

Thanks for the tip.  I've actually found some deals but just don't understand what the difference is between SLR and DSLR in Canon.  The following is a 10mp Nikon point-and-shoot my DD got me 5 yrs ago but it doesn't take action shots very well -- still, it's a way for me to enjoy my flock:

 

THIS IS MY OLDEST HEN - A very sweet 6-yr-old Partridge that teaches the new pullets (large fowl or bantam) and shows them gently she's in charge

SLR is a camera with lenses you can change to suit the situation that uses film. DSLR is the digital version that you can change out lenses on.  This is different than point and shoot which are cheaper. 

 

My Cannon has a sports mode with rapid shutter speed. That is a must when taking pictures of chickens. I set it to rapid shot and go. Usually I have the telephoto lens on so that I can be a distance away from the birds so they aren't all suspicious. Posing a bird on something, I usually just have the regular lens on. That way I can reach out and grab the bird if needed. Chicks jump, even if the adults don't.
