# 17 on my 40 Before 40 list is "Upgrade to a nicer SLR camera"
Over the weekend, I upgraded my camera from the Canon XTi to the 50D.
It's the camera I've been wanting for a while. I'm still too nervous to
get the 5D (which I came thisclose to getting). I'm afraid of spending
that much money only to have it get ruined!
I am so glad I finally upgraded! It's been a long time coming! One huge difference (besides the size and speed) is the fact that it has Live View. It's something that was added to the consumer models that came after the XTi and something I didn't realize I missed! It's a great feature to have. Especially for when I take all of my favorite low-to-the-ground shots
Now the pups will have to move quicker if they want to avoid having their pics taken!
