Entering the DSLR bandwagon…

What a birthday!! After much research, practicing with a film SLR, and indecision if this was the right thing to do, Alan and I went to Vistek and he got me a Nikon D80 as a birthday present – or sort of… Being a standard lens girl myself, I shunned the kit zoom lens for a nice and trusty Nikon 50mm f1.8 lens. What does that mean? It means I have no zoom but I get sharper images and more flexibility for getting nice pictures at low light without using a flash.

Here’s the camera right out of the box:

In the box



I’m now waiting impatiently for the battery to charge so I can start testing!
