Having some new lens love this week! I’m now the proud owner of a lovely wide angle lens. Making our shots of the truck much more dynamic. This baby is great for the low light of exhibit interiors. So in a word this lens actually makes my job a bit easier, I don’t have to work as hard to get the shots I need. We have to take pictures at every event, of the exterior at a minimum but we also try to shoot inside. They are used in reporting but also for marketing.
This is not going to be a post about how Best Buy somehow jilted me on service coverage of my camera. Actually they did very right by me, they replaced my camera. Thanks to the service package I purchased from Best Buy I am now the owner of a Nikon D5100. I also totally understand why many of my photographer friends buy a new camera every year. I’m amazed at how much the technology has changed in two years. I was very happy with my D5000 but wow I really like the D5100. The service plan gave me credit for a comparable model and I paid $100 extra for the upgrade. I purchased another service plan, well worth it if I need to have work done again. They will even fix a moldy lens and we do get our gear wet.
So here’s to learning a whole new camera.
