A New Toy


Yesterday, after a brief chat with Christian regarding the merits and efficacy of the Nikon D50, I popped myself along to a lovely camera shop in Weybridge and bought one. I also got a 55-200mm additional lens.

I spent a couple of hours reading the instruction book (must be turning into my Dad!) and then started taking pictures!!! You can see the results here. I'm sure my photographic technique will improve with time and practise!!!

  1. A wise choice indeed. I love my Nikon D50 although buying one is like an addiction as you have to get 'just one more lens' or 'a bigger flash' etc.

    You pictures, while a little horsey for my taste are very good. However, looking at the properties for them on flickr I have a feeling that the camera was set to AUTO.

    I will let you off this time as it is new but I expect to see Aperture/Shutter priority used in future, or at the very least, Program mode.

    Congrats on your new gadget. :-) I hope you enjoy it as much as I do mine.
