Well I finally got the D200 bought. It is somewhere between here and New Yourk right now. I bought the 18-70 lens for now and a 2Gig Lexar card. I only hope it a good move for me. I have thought very much about this and realized if I never tried digital I would never know if does for me what others get out of it. It has been a hard choice but I feel money speaks the loudest. Anyway I should have it by the end of the week so we will see. Monte.
Congrats Monte. I am sure you will enjoy it.
Thanks Dave. I am learning and spending some time with it now.
Please post some pics soon. You have agood eye for composition.
Dave I will as soon as I remember how here. You used to be able to attach an image with a post but now I donot see that option. Monte.
It looks like we now have to link to a web page where the image has been already posted by first clicking on "image"
in the box below and then either typing in the URL or pasting it into a dialog box.
It might be possible to do it with the UBBCode. Let's see
Yep, works like a charm. Just use [ img] and [ /img] tags surrounding the link of the image. Remove those blank spaces just after the [
still trying but I just cannot seem to get it. Monte.
I tried to post one of the photos in my on-line gallery (www.yessy.com/lightontheland). The image was there in the preview, but when submitted all that showed was the Yessy logo and a note that the image could be viewed there. Nice to know the gallery has that level of protection....
Bill, I just for some reason do not get it. Anyway I am enjoying the D200. It is not film but shows much promise. It is a well built camera. I have taken about 100 images so far. I am learning the camera and how it works, I really like the contol over exposure it gives you. Monte.
Glad you're enjoying it, Monte. I like my 20D, but my Hasselblad is still #1 for me.
Where are you trying to post your image from?
Hi Bill, I tried to get an image from another photo site I am on. It did not work. I understand your Hassy being number one. My film cameras were great, I just had to change because of things changing so much in my area. It was beginning to cost too much. I am determined to make the best of this digital move. I am learning a lot. I believe the D200 is a step up for digital. I have only printed 8x10 so far but was impressed with those. I believe in my eyes medium format had something digital doesn't but I have come to understand that it is just different and you have to look at it that way, Monte
Monte, Congrats on the D200!. From all accounts, an excellant camera. I keep telling myself that I will drag the film gear out and use it.....but the lure of digital is too great, so the film gear gathers dust.
Bron, I find the D200 very nice to use. I have tried to find things wrong with it but it is hard to do. Only wish I could afford the 70-200 lens.
I've been away from the SB forums for a while. Just want to wish you luck with the D200 - it lools like a great camera.
Hopefully your move to digital will work out for you... but don't be surprised if sometime down the road you begin to miss some of the aspects of film. It happens to many, myself included.
A year ago, I ended up purchasing a D70s. Great camera for the money, and overall I've been very happy with it. But, over time I began to miss film (can't explain the reasoning unfortunately). So, as I pondered an upgrade this year, the D200 would have been the likely upgrade path, but... I ended up going with an F6 instead. A move that many on these forums would consider crazy. But, for me it works. I still have my D70s for when the situation warrants, but since buying the F6, it rarely sees daylight. I believe that film will be around for still some years to come. Hopefully the perpetual digital upgrade path will slow by then and I can settle down with another DSLR. Until then, I'll be enjoying life with my F6.
Sorry for the long rant. Again, I hope you get the most out of your D200.
Best of luck!
