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?
- 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!
