New Camera

Thursday, December 24, 2009

Recently I got a new camera, and wow, am I impressed.  It's a Nikon D90 and it can take amazing photographs.

Of course, a lot of what makes a good picture is based on the photographer.  Picking the right subject is crucial, and knowing how to frame a shot so very important.  Yet the equipment is important too.  You don't see professional photographers taking pictures with $50 cameras, do you?  Nope.  Because they know they need the right tools for the job.

The Nikon D90 is a great tool for the job.

While obviously I'm not a professional photography, I did find that my regular point and click digital cameras where too confining.  What do I like about this camera?

Well....

  • 12.3 Megapixels - Not a bad size for pictures.  There are cameras with more, but after a certain size, the megapixles aren't as important.  If you want a 4x6 picture, even 12.3 MP is overkill.
  • You can continuously shoot about 25 pictures at a rate of about 4.5 per second.  That is great, and especially for moving objects where it's hard time the exact moment you need. 
  • Combined with the right lens, it takes great low light photographs.  I took some shots for the Pryor's Christmas Parade, and a few are posted on the Chamber's website.    There are a lot more on the Chamber's Facebook page.

This is a picture of Catalina as we were sitting a Braum's eating sundaes.  The quality of the pictures you can get is impressive...   I would recommend this camera to anyone!

Oh, and I think Santa's bringing me an external flash for Christmas!
