Finally!

Color me… No really just color me.

I pulled the trigger for an Epson printer today.

Jeebus. Took me long enough. Been seeing how long I could go without a color printer I guess. My old HP is just to damned persnickety and I don’t think the ink tank calibration works. I used it for a few years, but now, it’s… Time to go fellla!

It’s dead, Jim!

Last time I tried to connect with it, the thing told me it needed 2 or 3 new ink carts. And then jumped off my network.

Annnnnnnnnnd…

Pulled the trigger on a re-furbed Nikon D5100 Camera body. Crazy? Maybe. But…
Larger sensor
More megapixels
Multi-angle LCD view screen (in addition to the regular viewfinder).
Will let me automate some things with my computer (D60 will not interface)
Uses the same lenses as my D60. ! Yay!
Interface is pretty much the same too.

And a decent price for a factory re-furb.

As far as I can tell the only real cons?

It uses different batteries. Bleh.
Oh and Nikon’s re-furb warranty. 6 months.

I guess I’m gonna have to turn pro or something. **laughs** NOT!

I’m a two DSLR photographer!

________________________________________________________________


So… You want to take peectures, eh?

Signed up for a couple photography courses as well. I really need the principles and all that behind the scenes stuff, ‘splained to me.

Once I have a true(-r) understanding of those, I think I’ll take better photos. Already 3 or 4 lectures in on the first one.

Something I should have done when I bought the D60 those few years ago.

Bettah late than nevah!

Fall? Really?!

For SE Texas, we’re really having a nice fall-like week. I turned the AC off DAYS ago. And have had the windows and doors open since. I close the patio door (dunno why ~ I’m 5 floors up and on the top floor ~heh) at night when I go to bed. Not like some ninja is gonna rope in from the roof!

One night I had to close the windows as well.

Other than that - Not really much going on.

Need to scare up some dinner… Later…

Should have known you'd come up with that.

Hadn't planned to go. And... 7-10 day lead time. Not coming from speedy amazon.

I don't usually do anything.

You really should lighten up on yourself. Or me.

I ain't sure at this point.

At any rate, I am still not going. Like I said to you initially and any one else (there have been several) that asked.

And I'm not gonna play this game, whatever it is, with you either.

Cool. :) You'll do better when you know the "behind the scenes" stuff. Using it, I can make my truly crappy camera, honestly, obey my wishes according to my will. What are you going to do withe the D60?

And yes, a good printer is a necessity nowadays. :)

I know a bit all ready, but can't hurt to know more. I always get lost pretty quick when I'm around pro photogs.

The D60 ~ Well if nothing else sell it to a good home eventually... Got to make sure I really want to deal with the next steps.... HAHA!

I've neede a color printer for a while now.

Yeah, I probably would too. I'm sure I'd be at sea with a DSLR, so I'm glad I don't have one, seriously. :)

I also bought an Epson Printer this week. Love it! It is my wireless printer. I have a decent size laser printer that I use for bigger things. I wanted my wireless to be a multi-function, so got a Workforce 845. What did you get?

WF7010. My laser is an all in one. So I just needed a color printer that was capable of something besides letter and legal. Wasn't buying another HP. Heck my laser is a Samsung. Older but still doing what it does.

Congrats on the new acquisitions! I hope you'll post some pics from the new camera.

Huh. My old printer had the same issues. First one colour cartrige went, then two more...and it was replaced with a much fancier one.

That's cool that you got a new camera body. I hope I see some pics!

And glad you are getting nice weather. Our temps suck at the moment, but I'm glad it is raining!

Abou to take a sledgehammer to the old HP! Well no. But I wanted to a few times.

Should see some new ones.
