New Digital Camera!


It's the Pentax *ist DS digital camera. I decided on this one over Nikon and Canon because I have a bag full of Pentax lenses (from my youthful hobby) that can be used with their digital camera. If I had gotten either of the other two, I would have been stuck with just the lens that comes with it -- for quite a long time. Of course, to take this rose picture, I used the basic lens but that won't always be the case.

I am full of envy now.
The pic is great and you have a great camera.
I was told yesterday I cannot have a new one. :-(

Dang, that's a sweet camera, Esther. The photograph is captivating!

I don't know what I'd do without mine, especially considering that a lot of my photos are of quickly moving furry objects—lots of images thrown out.

Felis, why can't you have one? They're not that expensive these days if you're not looking for a high end model. Mine is probably under US$200 now.

Felis -- why not?! I'm with patrick -- some are quite inexpensive these days. :(

Thanks, David. :)

Thanks, patrick! Yeah, I've been snappin' my furry creatures like crazy too!

It looks pretty clean. Digital technology is amazing nowadays.

Esther, Patrick,
I have one but it is one of those fully automatic Sony 1.3 Mega pixel thingy.

I wanted to get Olympus EVOLT E-300 with one full Zoom lense, standard lense and a macrolense.
It costs ca 1800 and my missus said N0 Way - you already have one.
And I just feel I am being treated harshly.:-(

I can understand your feeling that way felis. :( What about a compromise -- and get one inbetween that one and the one you have?

Naaah Esther.
I don't want another toy with higher resolution.

felis, if I ever come into money (and have a job to keep it coming in), I want to get you a nice toy with high resolution. :)
