A New Toy

We just purchased a new digital camera for our office- the Nikon 7900. I have a Nikon Digital SLR (D-100), but we wanted something that could be slipped in my pocket for day to day site visits. I am sure photos from the 7900 will be appearing here and on the site real soon.

I bought the D-100 a couple of years back, when professional type digital cameras were just becoming reasonable. Now of course technology has advanced, and my old camera is outpixeled, although pixels alone do not determine image quality. Much of that has to do with the quality of the glass in front of the camera. The old Nikon has been a great camera and I have easily shot 30,000 plus images with it (including 10,000 in Europe, which can be see in our Great Gardens and Parks section)
