Lights, Camera, Action!

Hooray; my new camera has arrived! At least I think it's my new camera

Wow...what have I gotten myself into; there's a lot of stuff here.

Good bye little friend, there's a new kid in town and I am in love.

I have wanted to get a new camera for a long time. My little 2 pixel Fuji has been great but was definitely ready for retirement. My preference was for a SLR digital, deciding whether to get a Canon or a Nikon was the difficult part. For several reasons I decided on a Nikon: my daughter loves hers, plus I have several lens and other accessories from an old film Nikon that could be used with a new one. So, I now have a Nikon D5000 and the quality of the pictures I have taken so far, compared to the Fuji, is amazing. Now, what on earth in an class anyone?

Two sources I found helpful in making this purchase were:  A good information source on all things related to photography.  An online store; easy to deal with; delivery on time; good prices and on this item no delivery charges or sales tax.


  1. I think you will really enjoy using your new Nikon. I know I do! :)

  2. I am so jealous of that camera. I'm turning about around the edges....enjoy and thanks for the visit.


  3. Hello, Adrienne -
    This is the 'other' Adrienne - just visiting your blog for the first time. I'm a bit jealous of your new camera since I've had my eye on that very one but can't justify the cost since I upgraded to another DSLR just a couple of years ago. I'll be back to see what your new camera finds to share with us.

  4. Thank you all for your comments. I just hope that the person taking the pictures with this new camera can slowly work her way up to its potential.(-: I have so-o-o-o much to learn.

  5. ohhhh... it arrived! can't wait to see the products from your new camera... I agree - "f-stop" so much to learn... have fun!

  6. JEALOUS!!!
    Green with envy!
    Can't wait to see all the cool pics you will take with your new toy!
