Buying a camera: the conclusion

On Saturday, I decided I’d deliberated long enough, and trekked across the city to buy a Nikon D5000. Unfortunately, it seems I managed to get one of the ones subject to the recall, so I’ll be ringing them up this week to find out what the procedure is.

Apart from that, though, I’m hellaciously pleased with my purchase. I’ve been out photographing every day since I bought it (all three of them!) and generally rejoicing in my newly regained ability to frame shots, resolve fine details and use depth-of-field as a tool rather than a happy accident.

By far the most awesome thing has been coming home from work today, camera in hand, and discovering one of the most spectacular sunsets I’ve seen in ages, happening right over my home town.

Seriously, guys. Seriously.
