So if you follow me on Twitter you know that today I got a Nikon d60.
Really. What else do I have to say?
Except I was not blatantly copying or trying to steal the thunder of anyone else who may have gotten a Nikon for their March birthday as well. *cough cough* I swear! It was all in the works before I knew!! And my mother MADE me do it!
This has been paining me.
So anyways. I got one. And it's a little scary. I'd say this camera is equal parts terrifying and cool. Like too cool for me to touch...almost.
I have no idea what I'm doing yet...basically. But here's some pictures anyway.
So why the d60? Good question. The truth? I just gave up and bought it. I found a super great deal on it, it was under the $400 budget I was playing around with...and I pulled the trigger (or uh..purchase button) and got it. Did you know there is a REALLY GOOD REASON not to buy any camera on the market?? I do...because I've read that many reviews!! And they all made my head hurt.
Why Nikon over Canon? I like bright photos and Nikon's straight out the camera stuff always seems to pop just a little bit more.
Things I've learned in the few hours I've had it:
Jack (the Lab) is a contrary old man and an awful model. Chuck, he is not.
