Luckie probably is an unwilling participant as she hates it when I stick the camera in her face.
But I'm entitled. Everywhere I go somebody is conducting a poll: who will win the SUPERBOWL-wasn't the Dallas Cowboys, hmmm. Win the Kentucky Derby? Win NBA title? Opinions on Obama's campaign promises vs. reality? Do you have a LCD TV? Even the local print newspaper's on-line site has daily opinion polls on local, area, state and national issues.
I am contemplating a new camera and lens and may sell present Nikon D50 [6.1 megapixel] with a Tamron zoom lens, or I may just buy another lens.
Being a techie and having owned advanced amateur cameras most of my life, I do like the Nikon brand (2), but have owned at least one Canon. I love full digital cameras with both automatic and manual, or semi-manual controls. Lots of gizmos!
A number of you fellow bloggers do a lot of close-up work which I would love to do better, but the closeup of the Tamron zoom is about 12-17" from subject which is somewhat limiting if it is an ant or bee or other small creature.
So give me some ideas of what you use, not necessarily brands.
As a footnote, cat scan went smoothly today, thanks to my "advanced" planning.
