Soon after Garbanzo bought his VW Bus, he declared I could upgrade my camera. After a bunch of research and sticker shock, I decided maybe I wasn’t ready for it. Until today….when on Craig’s List I found a D3….for the price of a used D700 which was what I was thinking about getting. I met the guy at a Starbucks – made some small talk (or tried to) as I took pictures with the camera and was in awe. I’m a horrible person – I really am. I realized after how rude I was. He was clearly interested in sharing with me his move back to film – and I was too wrapped up in the camera. He got his money, so I can’t he won’t complain too much. The light sensor is definitely more sensitive. The photos I was taking in what would have been bad lighting conditions were amazing. So I came home and slapped on my favorite lens, and took these. Excuse me as I go read the book because this camera is VERY different from my D80.
