Foggy Morning Outing with the D600

It's the evening before Thanksgiving and I have SO much to be thankful for - health, family, comfort, abundance, freedom, wealth and peace - just to name a few things that popped through my mind.

Sure, there are those minor annoyances in life (like the fact that it took us three tries before my daughter was able to get her driving permit - three trips to two different DMV's in less than five days), but we live such charmed, full lives.

I am charmed enough to be the proud owner of yet another new camera. Yes, I succumbed to the glowing reviews, the beautiful samples available on the web, got camera envy and just bought the newly released Nikon D600, my first full frame DSLR.

I did something different this time, though. I sold my old camera gear - my beloved D300 camera and three lenses - all gone. I still have my original D70 - I wasn't going to get much for it and it's always good to have a back up.

I've had the camera for two days, and finally got some time to work with it outside - in this morning's fog.

I haven't used a DSLR for over a month and I've missed it.

The camera performs beautifully.
What's Brewing

I have no regrets buying it. Yeah, it's expensive, but I've come to the conclusion recently that some things are worth the cost (as long as they don't bring you into debt). So, in case you want to be enabled, there are several great deals available now with this and many other cameras - a $100 price drop, 2% rebates, free SD cards, batteries and camera bags. I bought mine through Amazon (another first for me - I normally purchase my camera gear through B&H) and had a great experience. [I don't have affiliate connections with any company - I'm just reporting on my personal buying experience.]

If you live in the US, I wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving Celebration - we'll be chowing down on turkey tomorrow around noon!

Congrats on your new gadget/toy! I'm sure you're going to love it as much as I do. I can't believe there is that more joy in using a full frame camera. Have fun!

The spider web picture is amazing. Love it!
