Camera, Camera, Camera!

As anyone that has seen me knows already, I have the new camera. It's a D70s body with AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor ED 18-70mm f3.5-4.5 G Lens, a SanDisk 1G Extreme III compact flash card, and a B+W UV Haze 1x filter. There were other things that I wanted and other things they wanted to sell me but I felt bad enough spending this much money on myself as it was. But I've been wanting this camera since December 2003 (well, its predecessor) and I did just get a bonus, so I'm mostly coping with spending that much money. Tall's Camera, where I bought it, is going to be sending me to class to learn from Nikon trainers. I suspect that this class will teach me much more about the camera and is likely trying to arouse lens-lust.

The first subject of the camera was AMPT, mokie_sassafras and digitalscreams's new child which we saw on Friday. Saturday night was the Garlic Party where people were tolerant as I passed the camera around and talked about it.
