Each Wednesday I enjoy watching Cameron take a golf lesson with David Oates, the resident professional at the Shenandoah Valley Golf Club. On this evening, while Cam diligently worked on improving his swing, I worked on improving my own skills with a new camera.
I’ve lost track of the many years my D2H has served me, but it now has more than 126,000 shutter actuations and is showing its age. It’s been a great camera and has traveled many thousands of miles with me, capturing images of horses and riders from the United States and Canada to Europe and beyond. These photos hang on people’s walls, in galleries, have been in countless magazines and have even won a few awards.
But over the past eight years camera technology has improved tremendously, so my 4 megapixel D2H is now rather obsolete, even as a back-up camera. Its replacement is much smaller in stature, boasts 32 megapixels, has HD video and is less expensive than my D2H was new. Amazing!
From my research on this camera, a D800E, I understand there’s a pretty steep learning curve, so I welcome critiques and comments along the way. Let the lessons continue!
