Talking New Camera

Figured it was about time for an upgrade, got a Nikon D90 earlier and so far I love it

Before, all I had was a 8MP Nikon point and shoot which I used for all of my photography..its a really good little camera, but I was ready for an upgrade. I'd done some research online and I really like Nikon's and the D90 seemed really suited to what I'd use it for.

I got it at Best Buy, got lucky and found a package deal that came with the body and 18-105mm lens as well as an extra lens (a 70-300mm ). I also bought a bag, a 8gb SDHC card and a 750gb Seagate portable hard drive to back all my pictures to (I take alot of pics and by backing my collection up I can delete the crap ones of my laptop). I'll try and post some pics with it tomorrow

The D90 is amazing!
I've actually played around with one.

It also does 720P video, for 5 minutes at a time I've heard. Have you tested that yet?
The quality should be better than a camcorder since the sensor is a lot bigger.

I wish I could afford one... I just don't have 700-800 to spend on something like that

Well, the only camera I have is on my phone...
I wanted to get serious with photography a few months back, but I just couldn't decide on a piece of kit, and lost interest because of it, but its the next step from the 3D world for me.
