New with love and respect to old...

bright and shiney

Meet the new kid. My big Christmas present. The Nikon D3000. Sleek, light, and very cool. I love it and will be taking many many pictures with it.

That is NOT to say that I'm tossing my old, reliable, amazing buddy Mr. D70

Old faithful

This camera has been an amazing photography companion, and I look forward to using BOTH cameras quite a bit going forward.

I was blog hopping around to see blogs that have daily pictures posted. I found yours. Love all the pics you've posted, and like you, I got a new D3000 for Christmas. I'll be curious to hear how you like it. After receiving it I realized it doesn't have Live View, or video capabilities. We'll see if that is a deal breaker or not. Happy New Year!

Well, I've taken about 25-30 pictures with it so far, and I am impressed with the quality of the images. I shoot raw as a general rule, and I have found that Windows Live Photo Gallery can't handle the size of the NEF files from the D3000, but that's not the camera's fault.

I seriously love my D70, and probably always will. It's that old blanket that you pull out when you want to relax and read a book by the fire -- you have newer, lighter, warmer blankets, but the old one feels better.

Check back in a few months and I'll likely have a better idea of how I feel about the D3000.
