It is dangerous to look at those sites :-)
It was sunny and bright when I looked out the windows an hour before I was going to go home after work today, it wasn’t like that at all when I came out an hour later. The sky was dark grey and the rain was pouring down. It was a bit better after I came out from the grocery store and almost rain free when we finally went out on our walk. So the hopes of getting a rather nice walk woke up.
Naturally it started to rain again and the farther we came from home the more it rained. By the time we came home again the dogs were soaked and the first water had eaten its way through my jacket so I started to feel cold. The temperature is now dropping and since it still is raining I’m pretty sure we’ll have lots of frost tomorrow morning because it will drop down below 0C (32F) during the night and all day tomorrow will be sunny they say and I’ll believe it when it happens 🙂
I was looking at our eBay (it is called Tradera here) on wildlife cameras and jumped over to digital cameras, especially Nikon and that is always dangerous 🙂 Anyway, they always write how many photos they’ve taken with the camera they are about to sell and I’ve learned that a digital Nikon is supposed to be able to take 150 000 photos before it starts to die, where on earth can one find that info in the camera? I’ve been looking through my camera and can’t find anything about that!
I bought my D5100 as used and have no idea how many photos the previous owner too but I thought about how many I’ve taken and it must be at least 13 000 each year I’ve had it (52 weeks times around 250 photos) and I’ve had it for over two years now. So how many more photos might I be able to take before it says goodbye? So I started to look at especially two different ones, Nikon of course 🙂 , and there’s one D7000 fairly cheap (fixed price) but it is more or less the same thing I have but with more ways to adjust the camera and to be honest, I almost never use any of the things I have on the camera I have now 🙂
But then I found a D5200 which also is similar but it takes up to 24,1 mega pixel photos. Now many mega pixels doesn’t give good photos in itself, the rest of the technique must also be much better and well-balanced with it. That one is not at a fixed price though and it is sold with a lens which I really don’t need, well to be honest I’m not sure I need a new camera at all since I have no idea how many photos this one has taken 🙂 I have surprisingly many analog cameras but not many digital ones 🙂 But anyway, does anyone of You out there know where to find the info about how many photos the camera has taken?
But my mind has started to work by itself I’m afraid but I like the camera I have and don’t think I would pay a lot of money to get a new one unless this one is on its way to retirement. I now have several films to be developed but I still haven’t gotten any bill from the last time I had that done. I’ve sent them an e-mail so I finally can do that and won’t send in any more films to them until this is done. I hate to have bills unpaid and always believe I’ve missed it somehow and that they will send a reminder that will cost even more 🙂
The fire is burning in the stove and it is time for us all to have something to eat.
Have a great day!
