Excellent Digital SLR article

If you are interested in digital photography and have wondered just what those digital SLR cameras are all about, then A Rookie Guide to Digital SLR Cameras is a must read!  I learned a lot.  But beware.  The article managed to do what Frank has not been able to do for years now: it convinced me that we need a digital SLR camera.  The author even recommended the camera and the equipment, so when I have a spare $1600, I know what I’ll do with it.  (After I buy my Kindle and iPod Touch.) 

One of the reasons I haven’t been blogging much on My Man’s Man about Frank’s awesome meals is because I can’t take good pictures of the food.  The exposure and the flash mess them up.  With a digital SLR camera I could get some much better shots.  (I won’t say awesome, but much better for sure.)  So here’s what I added to my wishlist (at the recommendation of Mike, the author of the article above.)  The links are his:

  • Nikon D80 camera: $760
  • Nikon 50mm 1.8f lens: $105
  • Nikon 18-200mm VR lens: $700
  • Hoya Circular Polarizer: $30
