Ever since I lost my last point-and-shoot to the murky depths of a moat in Long Beach I’ve been looking to get a new camera. I bought someone a Nikon D40x as a gift before and really liked it so when I started look for cameras again I wanted to get something similar. This year Nikon released an updated version of the D40x, called the D60 and on Black Friday most big stores had them on sale, so I bought one.
Next year I plan on traveling quite a bit, so this will be a good companion.
Went to the Reno air races Sunday…it was probably the coolest thing I’ve ever seen. I got to see jet races, unlimited races, and an F22 raptor demonstration. As soon as I make my first $20 million I’m pretty sure I’ll be buying a P-51 mustang and racing there. Unfortunately, because I dropped[killed] my camera when I was in Long Beach, I didn’t get any pictures :-(. Speaking of cameras, I don’t think I’m going to buy another cheap point-and-click. I bought a Nikon D40x before and really liked it (but unfortunately lost access to it). I’m starting to travel more and thinking about buying it’s predecessor, the D60. Seems like a good investment.
