New Camera

Filed under: Tech

| No TrackBacks

Well, I'm finally breaking down and getting a new digital camera to replace my old HP Photosmart 318, a 2.31 megapixel camera purchased purchased about 4 years ago. This camera was itself a replacement for my old Apple QuickTake 200 (and QuickTake 100 before that...). The thing that has driven me nuts these last few years was the lack of a zoom lens, and I'm tired of wide angle shots. Most digital cameras on the market have a wimpy 3x optical zoom if they have one at all, though a few have higher zooms. With the race for megapixels over the last few years, I still find it amazing that the camera's optics have barely been considered by most purchasers.

New new camera changes that, in fact, it doesn't even come with a lens. I'm going with the Nikon D50 a digital SLR camera. After reading reviews and talking with several folks, I've chosen Nikon's AF-S Nikkor 18 - 200 mm f/3.5-5.6G DX ED VR lens, a fairly new high performance lens that should handle most of my needs well.
