New Camera

Just got me a Nikon D-60.


Flew to Sanford Maine this morning. Wanted a lobster roll but they were out! I suffered through a decent turkey-bacon wrap instead.

Sanford Muni as I was descending to land. Further back is the Atlantic Ocean.

Cleared straight in to Burlington runway 33.


I got lucky. These dudes were taking off when I was on the ground.

Shouldn't your hands be on the yoke?

Nice shot of the jet. Your D60 must rock.

I'm sure it rocks, but he will learn. Eventually he will lust after the latest greatest model, whether he needs it or not.

Shyuh. I'll try to convince my wife that I need a D90.

As for the yoke, I was coasting in on the ILS and got bored.

OK, there's some SERIOUS lens pornography right there. It should have come with a "not safe for work" tag.

Yum.

I'm pretty seriously looking at this. I've been waiting for it to come out for a while, and the specs beat what i was expecting. Too bad I have to go buy a house right now...

Are you asking me? If so: The camera came with two lenses. 18-25mm, and 25-200mm. The pictures I took were were the big lens. My friend has an 18-200 which seems like it would be more versatile, but that's a lot of cash.

Taking pictures is an enjoyable pastime... I have a 10-22mm and a 70-200mm. I bring only the 10-22 when I bike, which is pretty sufficient most of the time. I still like the convenience of a compact camera, but they can't beat even the 4 year old 20D in terms of picture quality.

I'd imagine you mean the 18-55 (kit lens) and the 55-200. Both are really good deals for entry level lens. The 18-200 is more convenient, but has minor distortion issues.

Taken with the 55-200VR:

Er, d'oh! Yeah. 55.

Nice pic. The '60 is just so far above and beyond our aged Coolpix 885, I don't know why I didn't upgrade sooner.
