Day 1 with a New Camera

Date September 13, 2009

My birthday came a tad early (and Christmas came wayyyy early, really), in that my new camera — a Nikon D90 — arrived yesterday. I managed to get the battery charged and start skimming the manual yesterday, but it wasn’t until today that I got to take it out to see what it could do. I’ve got countless hours of learning/practice to go, but I still had a lot of fun with my initial run.

I did learn that a camera that can take 4.5 frames per second of photos can tally up a high picture count in a hurry — I had over 350 pictures to winnow down! I’ll learn when the continuous exposure does/does not make sense!

    Nice indeed! Neither Dad nor I ever got these as a blog feed (in answer to your e-mail question), but what fun to look at them via our MiFi at the cabin. It is working!!
