Yesterday, I got to test out my new camera. In case I haven’t updated you – honestly, the days kind of swim into each other lately – I decided not to wait for Santa and I purchased a new camera this week.
Long story short, I bought a Nikon P100. I had a Nikon Coolpix point and shoot, that I hated. But after a bunch of research I decided the P100 might be just what I need. A little more flexibility without having to spring for a digital SLR. I’m still playing with the settings.
The auto mode tends to pick up a lot of pink and yellow light, but the program mode is quicker and the colors truer. Then again, if I don’t have the right setting the picture is too light or dark. So it’s all a work in progress.
But the detail I’m able to pick up when I get the settings right is fantastic. And the ability to take landscape shots is really what I was looking for, too.
So far, I’m very, very happy with my camera choice. And I’m glad I didn’t wait for Santa. I would have missed pics from the holidays! Over on Bandit’s blog you can see some photos from our dinner, complete with Border Collie commentary.
