Turns out I'm a Nikon Guy

So..... On December 5th, 2010, at around 9.15PM, I became a proud owner of a Nikon D3100. After 3 years of pleading, my dad finally decided to get me a DSLR. Well yes, I preferred Canon much more, in fact I wanted to get a 550D, but well, my dad quickly jumped and bought this Nikon. At first I was devastated, but then I thought, Hey, maybe I got it for a reason. Maybe the Nikon chose me (or my dad chose the Nikon for me) for a reason. Maybe I'll be far better of with this D3100 than the Canon EOS 550D. Anyway, here are some shots of my new gear.

Of course, the 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 kit lens.

Apart from the basic 18-55mm, I also got a zoom lens, the 55-200mm f/4-5.6. It sure looks great on the camera body!

When fully extended:

Here are some sample shots I took on the first day.

So, I was glad I finally got my DSLR. And what about my old Casio EX-Z1200? It sure has served me really well for all these years, but it won't be going anywhere! Whenever I'm to go out for a shoot, I always keep it in my pocket, just in case. In some situations, believe it or not, its more useful and easy to use.

There are so many great cameras around these days. Nikons and Canons get way more press than they deserve. I walked away from Dslr cameras because point and shoot cameras have gotten so good, and are so much more versatile.
The things I look for are manual focus, manual zoom, and adjustable diopter. The rest of the stuff is just flashy gimmicks.
I look forward to seeing many great photos from your Nikon.

Hey John,

You're right, nowadays, more people tend to prefer P&S cameras as they're getting almost as good as dslrs. Most of them have many additional functions too. I won't keep any of you guys waiting, I'll post soon.
