After reading several reviews I was going to purchase the Nikon D50 but after reading through Dpreview.com forum I decided on the Nikon D70s. I am very happy I did. Here are my first pictures with Nikon D70s and the kit lens that came with it. (note- first pictures outdoors; my first pictures were of the living room and my computer desk but those are not very exciting.)
Actual these are my first pictures with any type of Digital SLR camera. I still need to read the manual- have yet to open it beyond reading what to do with battery for the first time. The controls are easy to understand. I just installed the Nikon software on my computer last night and played with the computer USB cable control of the D70s for a few moments. That was fun.
The pictures from the Brooklyn Bridge Park were taken the night after the pictures from the Pedestrian Walkway of the Brooklyn Bridge so cloud cover is different. It was very cold in the park. I only took a few pictures.
I shot in RAW format and used Photoshop after downloading their latest RAW plug-in.
I still need to read about what is the preferred method of sharpening the D70 images. I may under-sharpened some and over-sharpened others. I have the images uploaded to the Walmart Photo Service and hope to pick them up tomorrow so I can have a better idea then.
