So I got myself a Nikon D70. Let me tell you, this thing rocks!

Here's a few shots of an anole. Let the whole thing load, it's about 390k.

Well, I kept makin' fun of him in PMs, and he finally caved in and saw the light.

That original post with, what is that, a gecko? I'm curious how you did the little animation thing.

ROFL @ Axe:
In all fairness (not that Axe isn't fair about HIS point of view :) ) I did consider the Pentax *ist-D. Everything I'd seen told me it was a fine camera.

Nope, it's an anole. We get them everywhere in SC. With this camera I can shoot 3 frames per second / up to 144 consecutive shots. This little guy was amazingly cooperative.

Naah ya don't. They're the reptile world equivalent of a goldfish. They're not the kind of reptile you can handle, they're just sit-n-watch kinda guys, and despite what most care sheets say, they can not live in a 6" cube, heh. In the wild, males usually have a territory of at least 1,000 cubic feet (10'x10'x10'), and females will roam much further.

The animals themselves are super cheap in pet stores. You can get them for $3-5. But, their care is just as expensive as the $100 bearded dragon in the next cage (another one you should never buy from a pet store - always go direct to a breeder). Also, most pet store anoles are wild caught, which means they're REALLY not used to being in confined enclosures, and are probably loaded with parasites (and just the stress alone just from having to deal with vets handling and then treatment with meds can kill anoles).

Definitely not a pet kinda pet, but they are cute :)

If you change your mind, and decide you want an anole, come to SC, you can gather buckets of em for free.

yup, and the lens was another hundred, and the SanDisk 256 Compact Flash card was sixty.

I'm getting a better memory card soon. It'll be a SanDisk 512 Ultra II card. That is/was another hundred.

:shock: <---Reading cc statement. lol

yeah, the D70 is 500 bucks cheaper than the D100 ;)

D70 New == $1000
D100 New == $1500 (if you see a price below $1350, assume it's a scam and move on)
D100 Used == $1000-1200

No problem at all, sir. I got a very basic AF 28-80 G Lens. Pretty versatile in most simple shooting conditions.

Because it's my first digital camera, and in general, not strictly but in general, the D70 isn't THAT far off from the D100 on the basics. Axe generously spent some time with me chatting about the differences, read lots of reviews, look at lots of photos taken with both, and I thought I would get just as much Nikon goodness, at $300-500 less.

Sounds like a real nice camera. I just bought a cheap digital camera for my parents. They have had the same camera for almost 25 years. I figured it was about time to get em a new one. It was pretty cheap. Just a Nikon coolpix 2100. If you are lookin for a pretty cheap camera, its a good value. I, personally, have a Lite Touch Zoom 110s/QD. Its a nice little bundle of joy. :lol:
