“This is like winning the lottery. Congratulations!”
So said the manager of the local Henry’s Camera store in my town. My Nikon D200 arrived yesterday and I picked the camera up last night. There is so much demand for this camera that when one comes in, it is like winning the lottery.
I had ordered the camera back in April. I am heading out to Ireland next week and I was really hoping to have the new camera with me.
What a great piece of equipment and what a steep learning curve. To say that the body is full featured is an understatement. I spent over two hours with the camera and the manual last night.
I think I was able to take a picture by the end of the evening. Obviously I will post some pictures of Ireland to the blog. I should have enough time to work out the camera before I leave.
Technology offers many things. A comprehensive user manual and a separate “how-to” book seems to be mandatory. I would not have figured out all of the features and menus on this camera without the manual.
