Holiday Weekend (and a new camera)
It's Labor Day weekend and time to celebrate the end of summer. I will be spending some time this weekend getting to know my new camera. My trusty Nikon D40 has been replaced with a new Nikon D3200. After more than six years of nearly daily use with the D40, I had a problem with a bad sensor/dead pixels resulting in an annoying red line in most of my photos. Rather than spend more money to try to get it fixed or editing the line out of every photo (ouch - that would take forever!) I took the plunge and bought the current "entry level" DSLR.
I took a few photos in the back yard just to try it out. This camera is similar in many ways to my old one but has some great new features and the images are 24 megapixels (so clarity is better for highly cropped photos). It will also take high definition videos - so I may give that a try too.
Remember, today is the last day to get the super savings on True Scrap 5. You can save $50 with the code LUCKY50 and if you register today, August 31st, before midnight Eastern time, you will get the recordings of the entire True Scrap Young at Heart event (a $97 value) absolutely free. You can see more details about True Scrap 5 in yesterday's post HERE.
Today (August 31st) is also the last day to qualify get the special "Old School" free bonus bundle from Lettering Delights - see THIS POST for all of the information on the Back to School Dollar Sale.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Will you be taking lots of photos? What sort of camera do you use and do you like it? I'd love to hear your photo tips - just leave a comment below.
