Exciting news here – I’ve finallllly bought a new camera – My first DSLR and it’s a Nikon D5100. I’ve been waiting/saving for this for well over a year (dreaming about it for longer!) and finally on Friday I placed the order and it arrived on Monday
A little bit of a learning curve from my bridge camera but nothing too drastic – I’ve figured out what all the buttons do and almost figured out the menu setup
Monday it was raining and dark outside by the time I’d got everything figured out and charged the battery so I had to be content with taking photos of the Monkee and Reggie Rat.
But today I got outside for a few moments between the freelancing work
The pics below are straight off the camera minus some cropping/resizing – You might not be able to tell from the small web size (if you click on the pics they can be enlarged a little) but I can really see an improvement in capturing colors and am loving the lack of noise/grainyness.
Looking forward to a proper photo taking mini trip on Friday or Saturday to capture some more Autumn’ness to really give the cam a test drive
