I took this the first day out, with my first digital camera. To put it bluntly I was blown away by the color and detail. I had bought a digital camera as a toy, thinking it would be a nice novelty, it was so much more than that. It quickly became my primary camera, I have owned several since, they keep getting better and better. My current Nikon SLR is lite weight, easy to use, and has amazing technology. I take more pictures today than I did before. Do you take more pictures today, than you did before digital?
