Well, the hubs and I did a bit of shopping today. He and I used to be quite the amateur photographers. We both had nice 35MM sets. Then came the digital age and we both love the ease of a quick point and shoot that you can load to the computer immediately. Since having a new kitty we realized that the current camera wasn't catching the really fun stuff. I think this is mostly due to "lag" in the auto focus, or something.
So we figured in order to catch the action, we would need to upgrade to an SLR digital. The shutter in an SLR is mechanical versus electronic, so you don't have to wait on the electronics to decide if it's "OK" to take the picture.
So we did our research and decided on a Nikon SLR D-60. It is quite a hefty piece of equipment, and wow, I'd forgotten how good it feels to have a heavy camera in your hand. And having a nice eyepiece to look through instead of using the screen. So far, I like everything about it. It's been a while since I did any serious photography, so I may have to hit Barnes and Nobles and get a couple of new photography magazines and who knows, maybe look for a class or two.
Well, that's all for now. My next post will surely have some different photos in it and I will also be showing you the wonderful box of goodies that we got from a lady at the local thrift store. She was hesitating about donating something, so when DH helped her unload her trunk, she decided to give us this particular box. I think you will find it fun and interesting, so stay tuned for that.
Amos just commandeered the keyboard, I think he wants to make a post, so I'll finish up here.
Have a good....for goodness sakes, he's crazy...get down from there....Gotto go. See ya soon.
