New camera & Pomegranites

Oh did I have sooooo much fun today playing with my new toy, a Nikon D7000! WOW – this is sure a step up from my D200. I have never been able to hand hold my camera and take pictures in such low window lighting like you see below. If you scroll to the bottom you will see my first video I shot as well with it. Not sure how much video I will do but it’s sure neat to have the capability to record in such low light. More images to come!

Where it ended up

A little impromptu video on how to cut a pomegranate and my dog Burt eating leaves taken with the D7000.

    Wow, congratulations on the D7000, Eloine! I can assure you that you are going to love it! They results look great, what you can expect from the camera. It was a bit small for my hands so I added a battery pack that I got on eBay for $65. It looks like the $250 Nikon product that I am convinced they are the ones who make it for Nikon. The quality measures up and it works like a charm! Very pleased with it and the added grip makes it into what I call my baby D3. 🙂

    How fun to get a new camera to play with. Love the light on the shots. I also have learned something new from the video. I am one of those who end up all “bloody”, LOL

    I didn’t realize we had that many pomegranites. Now we have to figure out how to store them!

    Big congrats on the new toy! You are gonna have a ton of fun, and I think you’ll love having less weight to lug around.
