We went to our local “beach”… which is far from a real beach – but I wondered would I be able to make it look like a beautiful sandy oasis as opposed to a small slightly run-down lake. I shot away as I usually do – playing with light the way that I love to. As we packed up our stuff and headed back to the car.. I started looking through the images so excited to see what I had taken. I don’t know what happened but as if in slow motion as I was getting into the car – I screamed “nooooooooooo” and the camera crashed to the ground. In a panic, I gathered my “baby” up into my arms. I knew something serious had happened when that Error notice popped up on the screen. With important shoots lined up – and no time to wait for Nikon to fix it. I knew the time had come to retire my camera . My heart broke. … I LOVED my 700 – it has provided me and many families with irreplaceable memories. It helped me become a better photographer with its AMAZING focusing system. I know people say it isn’t about the Camera – but it doesn’t hurt to have a camera that performs as amazing as the 700 did for me.
I knew it would be near impossible to get my hands on an 800… but lo and behold my local camera shop had one available. I quickly snatched it up and can not wait to share with you what I think about it.
Here are the images from our final shoot.
