Yeesh can you say busy!?
I didn't even have time to take pictures for Sunday stills for hopefully the last time with my crappy camera.
Oh yeah I didn't mention. I bought a new camera! After months and months of waffling over what camera I wanted I definately knew I had to have a Nikon. Like I mentioned I will never buy another Kodak camera in my life. I played with a d90 and drooled over it's abilities and amazing video feature. I wanted one sooooooooooooooo....sooooo bad!
But alas I really do not want to drain my extra savings. Eep. Oh well. I opted for the Nikon d60 instead. I tried one out once and I was very impressed. Plus the price was 1/3 with all the lenses that I wanted.
I got a tripod, 18-55mm lens to start with, 52 wide angle, 52 telephoto, a carrying case, digital flash and a slave flash (very, very useful! I suggest anyone who has a camera to get one that responds to other flashes they are so handy!). It comes with a 4 gb SD card. I definately do not need any more of those! I have about 6 of them floating around here now filled with images from my other cheapo point and shoot cameras. Good thing. SD cards are so convenient A few UV filters, a 3 stage convertible lens hood and oh I want this. Check out the site and the video spy lens AKA a right angle scope lens. Cool. I always have a hard time getting images of people and them not looking like they are staring down the camera.
I can see this quickly becoming like the horses. I will have no money left at the rate I am going! I also want a few other lenses. Like next on my list is the Nikkor 18-200mm lens. Oh but that is gonna cost almost as much as what I just paid. It's a never ending vicious cycle.
So hopefully by next Thursday I'll have my camera. I shipped it to my Uncles just over the border in Michigan. My mom and I are going over to visit them and get the camera. I think we might go to some craft/hobby stores too. Much fun. I just hope it's in by then. Please let it be in by then!
What kind of cameras do you guys have? Whats your favorite? Whats your fav lens if your camera uses one? What kind of accessories do you use? I wanna hear some camera knowledge. Once I get my camera I am gonna spend a weekend with my Aunt whom is a professional photographer. I love going when she does shoots. It's so much fun and you learn so much.
Right now I have the Kodak easyshare M853 I suggest it to the camera illiterate such as kids and husbands that have no clue how to use a camera. If my dad can use it, anyone can.
Also have an ancient sony digital I cant even remember the name of and a sony cybershot that my mom claimed. It's older but deff better than the kodak dispite the MP differnce.
