La Paz, Bolivia-- pretty unusual place!
I've upgraded from the D5000 to D5100, which presumably does the same photo quality as your D7000 (without having the metal body and extra manual controls).
I've found lenses (like a fixed lens sensitive to light and wide one), plus HD polarized Hoya filters) a good investment.
The D5X00 line always have a great sensor. Just wish it had a bigger/brighter viewfinder and a 3' screen (for my D5000). All other cons I don't really mind.
A few more-- in full photo spam mode now...
The sensors on the D5100 are a step up from the D5000, but the screen with higher resolution was also a selling factor for me for the the $400 upgrade.
Actually, my next lens is going to be quite large...
The Sigma (aka Bigma) 50-500mm
Like I noted above, I'm still doing film photography.
So my question to you (all) is this: what do you DO with a digital file?
It's kind of hard to pass around a table, etc. My passing idea of what happens is that you make a print-out on an inkjet, which is a poor cousin to a film print.
What "we" do (as in my lady friend and I) is use either an iPad or a digital picture frame. Easy to show lots of pictures in a convenient way given that you have either of them!
I finally got my hands on Nikon D7000. It is amazing. Presently I only have the Nikkor 18-105mm lens but will expand soon.
I have a 5100. No idea how to use anything other than the auto-setting. No time for a course and the manual is frustrating. Any thoughts?
wouldnt say im a photographer as i really am just a spud with a camera, but i love taking sports photos, especially of the local footy (australian football, such a great game to photograph), motorsport and the tennis when i can go.
I borrowed a Panasonic GM1 the other day..very good small camera with superb image quality.
Pricey but worth it.
Bought a 35mm lens 7-8 months ago. Terrific lens IMO.
