  • So, I finally got one :)

    I went down to Wolf Camera today an dpicked up my very first DSLR. the Nikon D70.
    What a beauty she is.
    I got the 1gig memory card, the 70-300mm Nikkor Lens, a lens cleaner, a free 3 hour course on the D70, 3 filters, 2 UVs, 1 Circular polarizer. I got a UV for each lens, the 18-70mm, and the 70-300mm.

    I'll be going to the airport tonight, I might post some up here to see what you guys think

                    Very good bobby, I enjoyed looking at the pictures, especially ones of Southwest Airlines

                    Anyway, congrats on getting the camera, and enjoy it.

                        Couldn't agree more
                        You got some very nice stuff: camera, lens, card and all. First pictures look really nice, took me some practice to get a good panning shot!

                        cheers, Pamela

                          Wonderful choice of gear there. Now, all you have to do is save up for your 80-400 VR Oh, and body building classes to hold it!

                            Am I the only one not able to see any of the pictures?

                            Anyway, that's a nice purchase. The price of DSLRs have been coming down the past few months. I can find D70 + the 18-70 for under HK$10K

                              The pictures look generally slightly soft, give them a kick of USM, the comair and the 328jet are blurry (And I'm not talking the background) so I'm afraid they're no-gos.

                              Man I remember my first few days of DSLR photography, all I wanted to do was go out and take pictures all day. It's a great feeling, and you'll have alot of fun with it.
