2007-08-23 - Spring Shoots

Another shot from one of the many walks I went on in the Isle of Man.

Today has been a rather exciting day - first of all, I took delivery of a shiny new Apple Macbook. It's not mine unfortunately but I'll be setting it up and looking after it for my local photographic group. I've been keen on Macs for a long time and I must say, I have been really impressed by how well it works out of the box. Serious attention to detail.

Then, as if I hadn't had enough excitement, my friends at Nikon dropped a bombshell with the release of the full-frame Nikon D3 and a series of new lenses. This news might not mean a lot to everyone but it has been a long time coming for Nikon fans. It doesn't actually change anything for me since I can't justify the hefty $8000+ price tag at this stage but it is exciting to see such progress and innovation.
