Nikon D80, after retiring my Kodak Z980 Point-&-Shoot in March 2012). I do miss the incredible images it captured, but I'm happy it's with someone else now.
Since around 2002 when I bought my first Point-and-Shoot.
Since I do a lot of bugs-eye view images on the ground, the Live View feature on the Point-&-Shoot was great. However, this isn't a feature on the D80, so I need to find a 90 degree viewfinder attachment.
My photography interests are mainly macro, nature, and landscapes. Now that I have a DSLR, I'd like to develop and hone my people photography some more.
I was born in Brooklyn NY, raised in TX, & I've been in the beautiful PNW since Sept '86. For the most part, I've been in OLY since Sept 2003. I enjoy going out & capturing the world and learning what I can from those around me.
OP is great. I enjoy the group and definitely learn something when I attend the meetings, as well as the meetups.
