I’m still very much enjoying my Nikon D5000 which I purchased in November 2009 as being the first DSLR camera I ever owned. But it does have a few flaws (depending on the user and the user’s need), for me they are: No auto-focus in live view video recording mode, meaning you have to manual […]

I follow Nikon a bit from the sideline, since I’m a Nikon  shooter myself. Not a pro or anything, I’ve only had my Nikon DSLR since November 2009 but I already invested quite a bit of money into this photography hobby and I’m really enjoying it so far. That’s why, when I saw that Nikon […]

I recently replaced my Lowepro SlingShot 350 AW camera and laptop bag with the Lowepro CompuTrekker AW bag, which for me, is a far better choice.
