It's Here, It's Here, It's Finally Here!!!

I know, I know, shut up already!!! But I can't help it!!! I feel like a kid on Christmas morning LOL!!! My beloved Nikon D90 has arrived today!!!!!!!!!!! I pulled it out of the box, which mind you I only sent the body of the camera because I didn't know what they would want...So I got the whole new kit again!! So I had my other battery charged and immediately went to work trying to find things to take pictures of!! I could tell from the first picture I took the difference from this camera to the dud I sent back!! Right away when they camera pulled the lens to focus it did so with much more power than the other one did!!! Such a huge difference!!! Hopefully something fun will come up soon and I can put it to the test!! So here are my few samples from today....

  1. A great camera is so much fun... My hubby gave me mine last Xmas and now with blogging I'm learning so much about it. I love it! I'm in love with a Nikon too! It is a Coolpix P80 - I've tried many of the features and also have manual settings but haven't gone there yet. It sounds like yours may be an SLR -- you stated attachments? Have a wonderful day and I look forward to seeing what you capture with the lens. I'm wanting to try some photo contests (since I did when I was young) so looking for them.....

  2. What program do you have for your pictures? I have paint shop (but new computer - new software) -- I need to do some studying! Do you use your software to identify your pictures and add your name to it in the corner?

  5. Those are great photos and I can't wait to see what else you do with it. I would love to have a new camera, but it is not in the budget as of now.
    God bless

  7. GUACG~ Yes my camera is a DSLR it is the Nikon D90. I currently am using Lightroom for editing my pictures. Before that I used Picnik, they are fun to use for adding text to the picture and they have some really cool fun features you can do to your pictures!!

    Jan~ I had just bought this camera back in February and from the get go the pictures just didn't seem clear enough so I sent the camera and lens to a Nikon Dealer so that he could diagnose the lens with a problem so I could send it back, however much to my surprise he said it was definitely NOT the lens...He believed it to be a mechanism inside the camera that did not allow it to pull a focus right...So long story short I fought and fought and I won and got a new one!! Now I will say that sometimes if the lighting isn't right then the camera cannot focus to take the picture...As far as moon shots go, are you using a tripod?? I spent sometime this summer and finally got good moon shots, even with my broken camera..What lens do you have right now on your camera?
