A great new toy

Posted in Photography on February 22, 2005 by Simon

Yesterday I finally decided to go and buy myself a digital reflex camera. For some time i wanted to pick up my lost love for photography but had no equipment (my old manual camera broke some years ago and the digital i had did not allow any freedom).

So after reading tons of reviews my first choice was the Nikon D70, but after seeing it in meat space it came out much too bulky. My second favourite, the Pentax *ist DS is really much smaller and not less in quality and options and so my new favourite. Some extra advantages against the Nikon D70 is that it uses SD cards instead of CF and the USB2.0 interface actually _is_ USB2.0, which with the size of pictures (~10Mb in RAW) becomes quite significant!

So, next thing is to learn al those photography tricks again.
