The “brown stork” (aka the UPS man) delivered “Nik 9” approximately12:00 pm Tuesday at my office. I purchased it from my one and only favorite camera super store B&H Photo in NYC.
I have been contemplating getting a 2nd camera body for months so that I can take on more jobs in 2009 that I was afraid to tackle without a back up camera. After thinking and thinking I finally went for it this Sunday! Not only did a I go for it…the Nikon D90 purchase was the VERY FIRST purchase with the money I’ve made from all of my jobs in 2008!! I couldn’t spend a cent until I really wanted something and this was it!
I went for the Nikon D90 because of the upgrade to the features of my Nikon D80 aka “The Gun.” I thought about a D200 or D300 but with the added weight of those larger camera bodies I felt my wrist wouldn’t be able to handle the added stress. I knew this from experience after using my sister’s D300 for a wedding I did last year.
*While your at it (after you check out the pics below) why don’t you stop over and congratulate Julie on her new arrival “Nak 9.”
As soon as “Nik9” arrived I took his photo with my cell phone as soon as I got it out of the box:
Lucas was my very first model…isn’t he the handsomest model around?
He got a little tired of posing at the end and let me know it… 🙂
Before I was done playing with the new toy I tried the video feature on the D90 which I think will come in handy to make quick videos of set-ups or fun moments at video shoots! 🙂
