New Camera And The 6th Birthday Party

New Camera And The 6th Birthday Party

So today’s post is going to be a quick one because over the weekend I went up north for my nephews big sixth birthday party. Before the trip I purchased the Nikon D3300 DSLR camera that came with two lenses the 18-55mm and a 55-200mm lens for the camera

Nikon-D3300I had been itching to upgrade to a DSLR from my previous Canon SX30IS point and shoot camera that had a whopping 35X optical zoom. While the Canon was a great camera I had been limited on the range and the flash on it is really terrible. I did get a 3rd party diffuser that had helped immensely with this issue.

It was time to step up and get a better camera for photos for the website. So what does this all mean to you? Hopefully better pictures of the events that I cover for the website. I will update the use of the camera from time to time.

I will try to be back tomorrow with a full post but here are a few pictures with the new camera.

Using the 18-55mm lens for this one with the flash that thankfully doesn’t blow the entire subject out. Huge improvement with the sharpness, color and focus. All of the below photos are with the auto focus features.
