Re: Shopping For a Camera.
Hey guys, I went to go try out the D80, and ended up getting it the same day i tried it,lol. I told my parents lets head over to the camera shop because I wanted try it out. As soon as I began to take shots I couldn't let it go. My parents were fairly impressed by how sharp and tight the pictures were. So they said, "I'm tired of developing your film, let's get you this D80". I told them I could wait, but they said now is the time,lol.
So here's what I got:
Nikkor 18-200 MM Lens ( It covers both my lenses of my film camera)
Nikkor 60MM F/2 Micro Lens
SB800 Speedlight Flash
Lexar 4gb SD card
and an extra battery.
I have been taking pictures left and right, and my dad, who used to be a avid photographer, said " Stop taking pictures because you might end up breaking it, go do more research on how to use the camera." The funny thing is having a hands on experience is the best way for me to learn, if i dont know what something is the manual is always a great reference. I still need to find what bracketing is, if you guys know, help me out,haha. So my Christmas was probably the best xmas ive had. My next buy would probably be a Tamron Wide Lens, my parents werent to keen on getting the d80 body and just get the tamron and sigma lenses, they wanted everything to match, so i said hey its your choice, i'd be happy with sigma or tamron lenses. But the Tamron Wide Zoom lens is gonna be the next buy.
