HNT: the camera

November 12, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

Today’s HNT celebrates the hardware that goes into making most of these photos: my Nikon D60.  But I couldn’t help making a little bondage experiment out of it.

I am completely enamored by this camera and the amount of control it gives me of the picture.  Of course it is only a starter DSLR and may be limited, but having no experience with any of the newer DSLRs, I don’t mind not knowing what I’m missing out on.  This baby’s perfect for what I use it for, and I doubt I’ll ever go beyond amateur photography.  I’ll always love taking photos, and I haven’t even really explored the full breadth of what all the manual options have to offer.

    you need to put one of those red arrows in the pic, for the life of me I can’t see any camera here.

      Just stare harder…you’ll see it eventually, I’m sure, haha.

    I’m having camera envy…. Love the little hip action you got going on there too! 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by again, Vixen!

      Yeah, part of the reason I picked this one was because I liked the way the lines of the shirt almost mirror the curve down my hip.

      I love my baby…maybe I should name it (him? her?) It’s not a high end model by any means, and a few generations old, so it’s in a better budget range, if you’re considering. I got this refurbished on Amazon, so it was even cheaper!

        Looks like a high end model to me… Perhaps I’m biased.

          Perhaps you are…but I won’t hold it against you.

      But it’ll come out of the shop even better! 😉

    I’m with V. Camera envy. sigh

    Awesome bag. And you wear it so well.

      Thank you, T. (By bag you mean the camera?) And I should also have pointed out that I’ve loved using my little point-and-shoot. Gotta give it props too!

    Love the self-“bondage”! I am thinking of taking a photography class myself and was just looking at cameras…will have to look into this one now too.


    • November 13, 2009 at 1:16 am

      Yeah, with newer cameras coming out every year, the older D60, D40, D40x will only get cheaper. And the major companies (Nikon, Canon) are coming out with higher-quality, more affordable “hybrid-ish” cameras too.

      My baby’s a refurbished buy through Amazon, but she handles well so far!

    I’ve been looking at DSLRs and like Vixen and having camera envy too!

    Happy HNT!

      Thanks for stopping by! I’ve made a few remarks on DSLRs already in earlier comments. Have fun camera-shopping! Happy HNT.
