Subject: NFG's new camera: the Nikon D700
Zumi's approved the purchase of a new camera: The Nikon D700.  I've been due for a new camera for a while, and was poised to get the D300 until this one came out.  12 megapixels and a full frame sensor made this a serious must-buy for me.

My dad's got the D300, so I've spent a lot of time with it.  It's a great camera: solid metal, high speed, loaded with buttons, features, and qualty.  The D700 is all that plus the larger sensor anda few other tweaks.

The Sensor:
It's a bit technical, but there are three reaons the larger sensor is important to me:
  • Large sensor means less densely-packed pixels, which increases overall image quality
  • There's a lot of math, but the larger sensor means a wider field of view: perfect for parkour.
  • Better bokeh: larger sensors get more blurring on things not in focus, which is good.

Add to that the speed (5-8fps) and the result is: $3k towards the new camera is money well spent!

Now, the new rate scheme for jams is as follows:
NFG pulls out the camera: Five bucks.
NFG thinks about taking your picture: two bucks.
NFG takes your picture: five bucks.
You like the picture: five bucks.
You want a copy of the picture: five bucks.

Dude, that's freakin sweet. I held one and, like you, nearly blew my load. Can't wait to see what you can do with it!
