I am so excited. And no, it’s not because all of the photos on my EHD have been recovered. I still haven’t heard from the computer specialist who is working on it. I am excited because I came home today to find a new camera waiting for me.
It’s a belated birthday present from my husband.
I am now the proud owner of a Nikon D7000 which is a definite step up from my the trusty D80 I’ve been using for the past four years. I’ve charged the battery and am following the digi-tutorials and reading the manual and hopefully, in about a year or so, I’ll have it figured out.
This is the first photo I took using the new camera. It came as a ‘body only’ because all of the lenses I have will fit it. I took this using my 50mm 1.8 and this is straight out of camera (or SOOC).
The colors are spot on. The light was low and this was taken in Portrait mode on the auto dial, for heaven’s sake. The dial is quite different than that of the D80, so this is going to take some getting used to.
I am happy. And to think that the only thing I had planned for tomorrow was cleaning out the refrigerator . . .
