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!
