So I got myself a new camera this past weekend. A Nikon D5000. I choose the D5000 due to the liveview feature and the low light capabilities that the camera possesses over the D3000. Of course I am a firm believer that Nikon has better optics then Canon, and thus you can get a much nicer photo from a Nikon Camera without any need for post editing. I am still learning the camera, but I have taken a few nice photos so far. Nothing too stunning yet however. Just trains. Overall I am enjoying the camera. I shall test it out this weekend when my friend from out of town is visiting.
