Just a simple blog post – I’ve ordered one of the new Nikon D90 cameras for myself – I wanted a DSLR so I could learn more about RAW shooting, I also wanted a Nikon, so I could doodle with the Red One’s Nikon lens mount. BH Photovideo has the D90 with a VR 18-105 lens for $1295, I’d asked for B&H gift certificates for my birthday back in June, so I was able to use those to offset the cost. I got the camera with lens (the body alone is about $1000, but not available until October according to B&H’s site), a coupla 4GB cards, a remote trigger, an extra battery, the big battery pack that lets it do something extra I recall, and a monopod. It should, in theory, all get here Friday, so I’ll let you know how it all turns out. I’m really a post guy at heart, been learning more about what happens in front of the sensor the last few years. My iPhoto has about 20K+ images in it, so I figure it is time to step up to a DSLR and start learning more. Plus, the camera has a nifty 720p video mode which will be fun for doodling/documenting. DPreview mentioned a Nikon GP-1 GPS tagging gadget, BH didn’t list it, but that sounds like the kind of thing I’d definitely want to play with, and could lead to some fun web stuff to doodle with. All in time.
