Well that is what I told my wife to convince her to let me drop a couple grand on my new set up. I originally was all set to buy Canon but the reviews on the Nikon D80 were just too good. So I switched brands and bought a Nikon D80 and accessorized it with a MB-D80 grip, Speedlight 680 flash, bought a 50 mm f/1.8 and finally my 18-200 VR lens arrived.
Now I just have to learn how to become a photographer. Bought a couple of books (Scott Kelby Digital Photography and also the standard Understanding Exposure). Peruse fredmiranda.com and I do like ken rockwell’s site.
Anyone have any other suggestions for books or websites to put me on the fast track to learn this craft?
For what it is worth I used my Canon point and shoot to take this pic.
