New Camera!

After the longest two days of my life (gotta love Amazon prime shipping), I finally received my camera! I was very excited to unbox all the little goodies that came with it. I opted for a refurbished Nikon D5200. It did come with the normal 90 day warrnety from Nikon. So, hopefully, I get the most out of this camera. I have read really good reviews about Nikon’s refurbished products, but I will keep everyone posted about this.

It has been years since I have had the chance to play with a DSLR camera. So, I had almost no idea where to start after unboxing my new one. After charging the battery and reading the manual, I decided to play around with depth of field then try my luck outside. The rain made it an exceptionally gloomy day, even for Florida. But, I had a good first run, and the camera itself seems sound. Now I just have to account for user error and keep shooting. My next purchase will be a tripod so that I can try my hand at landscapes. There are a few spots in the area I’m very excited to explore.

Thank you 🙂

    Good camera, I use a D7000. When getting a tripod look at the Manfrotto line at B&H Photo out of NYC. They are very good and have great prices and free shipping and no tax. I use them for everything from memory cards to spare batteries and their line of Sigma lenses is top notch..:-)
    Have fun shooting..


    • Thank you for the tips! I just received my tripod. I actually opted for a Manfrotto one! That’s really exciting, I was hoping I chose a good one. 🙂 Also, thanks for the recommendation. I’ve been wondering about spare batteries and Sigma lenses. Are they as good as a Nikon one?
