In Debt Up to My Eyeballs

Well, it's official now. I am now up to my eyeballs in debt.

I took out a loan for a grand and bought the Nikon D90 (body only) from BH Photo. BH Photo is a camera super shop in NYC which has a stellar reputation.

I also got an SD card and the little external button thingy.

PHOTO TIP: If you want to take crisp pictures, you need the external button thingy as pressing the button on the camera might shake it. If your camera has a rapid picture mode, you can take the picture twice. The second picture will be sharper than the first. I am a wealth of technology knowledge.

I was torn between getting the camera with the 18-105mm or 18-200mm lens kit. I want the second lens. It would have added $700 to the purchase price! Going a grand in debt is enough for me. After agonizing deliberation, I decided to use an old used lens until I save up enough pennies for a new lens.

As mentioned ealier, my business plan is to leech off the creative efforts of others. I simply need enough camera so that it would look like I knew what I was doing, I could then go to the Utah Photo Walking event to pass out business cards and people might link to my Salt Lake Photography directory. I don't need a kickin' lens for that.
