    Let's see some pictures!
    You can further the brotherhood of man by eliminating class.
    You can lift the wage earner up by equalizing earnings.
    You can bring about prosperity by overturning the holders of power.
    You can strengthen the weak by eating the the strong.
    You can help the poor by destroying the rich.

    This might help when anticipating long zoom situations. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...bon_Fiber.html Very inexpensive for carbon fiber, but was pleasantly surprised. The twist releases are very smooth.The basic Manfrotto monopod head (flips horizontal/vertical) fits nicely.

    I got the older model Nikon COOLPIX P100.
    They're decent cameras:

    cool new (to you) Nikon. My first digital was a Nikon which my parents still have, followed by an Olympus that's still around somewhere, but been a Canon user since then. Not to threadjack ya, bu here's what I picked up today (camera body only, lens I've had for a while now)

    Not bad- I've been shopping for a replacement for my camera, which is ancient in technology years (2 megapixel). There's other used P500's going for about $200.

    2 megapixel is kind of old but i think they go over board on the megapixel wars i rather have a 2 megapixel with good glass then a 16 megapixel with bad glass

    Another option to used is factory refurbished. With used, you have to guess at condition and there is no warranty for second owners - even if the camera was still in the original warranty time. With factory refurbished, it has been checked out by factory technicians and comes with a short 90 day warranty. No $200, but here is the P500 in choice of colors for $250. http://shop.nikonusa.com/store/nikon...ctID.235410700 Canon has similar.

    That's why a Nikon (used or refurbished) is attractive. My even-more-ancient Nikon EM 35mm SLR took good photos, even when the photographer's technique sucked. I've decided to enter the 21st century.
