A New Camera Arrives!

Casper B&W

Today I picked up my new DSLR, a Nikon D300. This model has been widely acclaimed, being picked as ‘camera of the year’ by a couple of media companies. Having cut my teeth with the Olympus E-500 and Canon A630, I am looking forward to learning more about digital photography and with any luck my pictures will improve.

This is my first experiment with a fast 50mm lens in low light, and man, it was a blast! The camera focuses quickly and sharply, and the lens was perfect for the conditions. This is my cat Casper, doing what he does best – looking pretty and laying around. When he’s not pursuing the perfect cat nap, Casper likes to go outside for short walks, just like a dog.
