new toy

Playing around with a new camera. Haven't quite got the hang of the macro lens. Reading the manual would help.

Not one of your monster machines.

It's a Nikon D80 with a Nikkor 105mm macro VR lens. but the lens that came with it sucks...so may have to bump up to the 18-200 lens (I think that was the range. that lens is $800 or something like that)

I tried out the nikon D200, which is really nice (when using $1500 lens) and has better metering I'm told, not that I know what that even means, but my hand is too small and it's simply too much camera for a not-so-serious hobbyist.

I bought cam to document my work and do a few silly things with it. Not that there is anything to document in terms of artwork. It's mainly a diversion/coping machinism.

The previous post with sea urchin and rubberband ball was with the D200.

oh FUN
I love the macro feature.

So far I still only have a point and shoot digital camera - but I've gotten some pretty nice pics even with that.

That said, I really love going to Circuit City and looking at all the fancy cameras and gadgets. Hope you're enjoying your new toy!
