Occasionally when a new camera body is launched, it is *essential* that you buy it. I need to upgrade my D80 to a D3 or a D300 🙂

On the other hand, perhaps I should just wait for the next one, as that one is bound to be better…
… detailed specifications of the soon to be launched Nikon D90.

For you Canon guys, don’t feel left out… this guy seems to have some excellent contacts within Canon too, and scooped this, on the forthcoming Canon 400D replacement.

Finally I’ve joined the digital SLR revolution 🙂

Courtesy of an early birthday present, I am now the proud owner of a Nikon D80 🙂

Lights, camera, action…

I got my old Nikon F401 camera back last weekend.NikonF-401

So it’s old, late 80s, early 90s, and works with real 35mm film! Can you believe it? 😉

Having used “consumer” digital cameras for the last 10 years or so, I had forgotten what a “real” camera was like to use. Instant response. Pin-sharp view through the viewfinder… and I bet the roll of film I used up will contain some great pictures… due mainly to the camera.

This has re-ignited my interest in, so called serious photography, so my gadget shopping list now has a new entry… Nikon D80. Recently the D80 was well reviewed by “The Gadget Show” on five (UK TV channel), against the Canon Digital EOS 400.

[To be fair, I do still love my Canon Digital IXUS… it’s a great little camera, and still a beautiful piece of industrial design.] CanonDigitalIXUS
