My latest gadget arrived today - a Nikon D80 Digital SLR

Woohoo, today my latest gadget arrived - a brand new Nikon D80 SLR camera. I'm always trying hard to spend the ad money I earn for site related items and this time I spend the savings to be able to provide you even better product and event photos. While my previous Nikon Coolpix 5700 was pretty good at its time, it wasn't good enough for my needs anymore. Something I've figured out latest, when I tried to make some nice photos during last weeks Biathlon World Cup because I figured out that the shutter speed was far too slow for fast sport pictures.
Anyway, the Nikon D80 is the latest follower in a long SLR history I have and everything started with a Canon T70 SLR I got back in the 80's, which my father brought for me from Japan. Later on, I switched to a Canon T90 SLR to switch later again to several Canon EOS SLR cameras.
In the meantime, I made some trainings at Ilford Photo (the German office was located close to Franfurt in Neu-Isenburg, close to where I grew up), where I've learned to develop films and papers and it was a pretty cool experience. So yes, I was always an addicted photographer (even if I never was a good one) but digital photography made everything easier. :-)
So after a couple of digital cameras (and I'm not counting my mobile phones and PDA here) I upgraded to a Nikon Coolpix 5700 back in 2002. Well, now - 5 years later - the Coolpix 5700 amortized and I thought it was time for a new and better one with an - even more important - fast lens. My new D80 has all these things and since I bought a couple of accessories for my previous Coolpix, I staid with Nikon now (not to mention that, when I was a small boy, I always wanted to have a Nikon because Nikon was the synonym for professional photography).

So I hope I can provide you even greater (macro) product photos soon, the first product I will start with is the i-mate JAQ3, as well as good event shots (the first event I will use the D80 is the 3GSM Congress next month).

Cheers ~ Arne
