New Nikon D4

Start dreaming of a lottery win Ladies and Gents,

This one looks set to be the bee's knees.

The only price I've seen up to now is USD6,000 :shock:

Go for it WD, mind you, theres no lens in that price, they come seperate. :shock: ;-)

Not sure what your budget is, or how much into photography you want to get, but this might be of interest to you.

NO, DEWI! :shock: :shock:
I'm not a camera person but there are so many wonderful things happening here, animals, tortoises, flowers, and I start feeling a slight interest to get it on camera and start sharing.
I think I'll start small. Very small. Digital Mik-en-Druk! Then comes the learning how to post the pics, believe it or not. In this area I'm like a grade 1 pupil who is learning to read! :o0ps:

Don't worry, I was very late getting into digital and have yet to have a course in computing of any shape or form. I held onto film while others were advancing way beyond what I could do. When I saw their results from mik en druk, I swapped cameras and have not looked back. I'm no expert, but simply enjoy taking pics of wildlife. There are lots of websites where you can pick up little hints and tips, which is what I did. When I saw something I wanted to try out, I googled for the info/help and just learnt slowly from there. It's great fun to try things out once you start getting into it.

One thing if you do get hooked, you will forever be upgrading your gear!

No thank you! I'm already trying to recover from the price tag of my D300s.

Dewi LOTS of things must happen first some of which are..Great price on the sale of my current cam, No reversal of Sales comm in my job like happened this month so I get basically no salary on 25th so March wont savea thing and I planned too, No unforseen expenses...like Swim pool filter breaking, Car repairs of major proportions etc etc so we will see...its a project at this stage.
