It is time for an upgrade

Nikon D700 digital SLR camera.

I’ve talked about it enough around here so you’ll be relieved to know I took possession of a slightly used Nikon D700 digital SLR camera yesterday.  I’ll be giving it a proper shake down later today.  Look for the results next week.  I purchased the Nikon MB-D10 battery grip last month with the Pioneer Woman B&H Gift Card I won way back in Febraury of 2009 along with a few other goodies.

    Congrats Scott!

    I bet you will find you do not need the battery grip as the battery life on the D700 is impressive (the same goes for the D300). We found the battery grip to add needless weight.


    • Thanks, Tracy!

      The battery grip is more for adding frames per second for sports photography. Without the grip, D700 does 5fps. With the grip, 9fps. Very handy for hockey games and, as I found out over the weekend, Scottish games, too.

    I’m very happy for you for a whole lot of selfish reasons! It will be fun to see what you come up with as you get acquainted with the new camera.


  5. CONGRATS! I’m very excited for you!

    Congrats Scott, I bet you are real excited.


    • Extremely excited, Preston. This was a long time in coming. Using it over the weekend was as much fun as I had hoped it would be. Previously, when I borrowed my friends D700, I had to be careful with it and leave his settings as it. Now, I’ve set it up the way I like it and will be adding my own tweaks as I learn more about it.


  8. Wow, congrats Scott, that’s amazing. You’re going to have a fun fall, I suspect. 😉

    Happy new camera!!! It looked like you already had an awesome camera before, so I can’t even imagine how much more awesome this one will be for you!
