In a fit of mad enthusiasm I’ve dropped over a grand on a new camera (D300 for those that care). It arrived on Monday and I have to say, it’s a beast!! Better than my previous camera in every way except the fact that it’s quite a bit heavier – something I wasn’t really expecting.

The manual is over 400 pages long, and that’s all English….
Sooo many settings, I had a little read of some of this monster tome last night before I went to bed. My dreams were filled with wonderful and beautiful vistas in some part of Australia, coupled with my complete inability to capture them because I had some settings wrong on my camera and didn’t understand what was going on.

Fortunately I’ll be able to get to grips with this new hunk of technology new week when I’m relaxing at my parents place 🙂
