It started with just a wish as I couldn't afford one. But after months of saving up, just around my birthday and Christmas, I join DSLR owners and Nikon users with the arrival of my new camera.
It was long debate, a good 6 months or so on what camera to buy. The debate intensifies every time prices get better and better. One of the main issues of course is the great divide between Canon and Nikon. It's an issue every new dslr buyer has to resolve for himself. One has to consider that he is buying a whole system not just a single camera.
I chose Nikon in the end for two main reasons:
First, most of my friends and relatives who own a dslr shoot Nikon. I can learn from them. I can also borrow lenses from them.
Second, the camera felt great in my hands. I like the way the buttons and dials find their way to my fingers.
So far I am very pleased with the results. It has exceeded my expectations. DLSRs are easy to use now a days compared before.
|Now... how do you power this on?|
|The lens supposed to go here right? Now... is it clockwise|
|Now that I have the lens on, how to do I remove this|
lens cap? Clockwise or counter? Hmm...
|Now for the strap, jeez... sweet pea do you know|
how to do this?
|Point and click. There there.|
I am having fun taking lots of photos with my new cam. I'm learning everyday.
