First Experience

Posted in Photo on 21:50, October 29th, 2006

I went out to take some pics with my new camera today. Nothing very spectacular or artistic or special. Just first test in the fields. I’m generally pleased with the quality of photos and possibilities of the camera. Still, I’ll have to get used to its controls and features. The place I went was the museum of locomotives not far from my house. I wanted to visit it for quite some time, but had no real reason to do that. The weather conditions weren’t perfect for shooting, there was wind and grey clouds and occasional rains, but such is life. Enjoy.


So here it’s new hardware

nikonlogo_i.gifAfter long time spent on the photoforums and reading Phil Askey’s full review of Canon 400D I decided what camera to buy… It is Nikon D80. So I went and did it. Now I’m proud owner of this uber complex piece of japanese hardware. I promised pics as I get new camera but it turned that to get proper images I’m pleased with I have to spend some time learning how to use this camera. It’s not that easy as one might think. The possibilities are endless there… It’s like Photoshop which looks simple at the first glance but has vast number of tricks hidden and useable after some time spent on it. So, you just take some patience while I’m taking my time developing my SLR camera skills to deliver you new pictures.
