Well I got for myself a Nikon D5100, this 18th October 2011. I was so dying for a DSLR, more so when my Sony camera refused to work properly everytime I used it. I had been looking out for bank loans and some way to finance, since my dad said “NO” to the idea. But finally he agreed to give me 24000 INR for he owed me that sum since 2006. 🙂 Having done all permutations and combinations, I got my DSLR on EMI schemes. Hopefully I wont be kicked out from TCS, and I can pay the EMI’s
I had a choice between Canon 550D and Nikon D5100 at first. This month, at Better Photography, Raj Lalwani compared exactly this two camera models. In his article, he kept D5100 ahead of Canon 550D. So my choice was clear. Few suggested I take D90. Few reports suggested D5100 was better than that even, even Anirban Brahma da also suggested. So my choice was clear.. I dont like to think much myself, unless I feel I am an expert in the field… so trust the experts!
I am actually enjoying this new camera. More the manual focus part, there is so much to learn. I am loving the “no grain” factor even at ISO 1600.. actually loving a lot of things.
Now I wish to get the 14mm wide lens, and travel Nepal, Bhutan and Arunachal Pradesh… Its gonna take some time, considering permutation and combinations arranging my salary pa, the cost of the lens and of the travel.. and yes, I shall be a TCS employee, getting such big span of holiday is also not that feasible 😀
My Mom even bought a parrot, the day before… I could not find a suitable name for it… so I did what the West Bengal Government did few days ago… they transformed “West Bengal” to “Paschim Banga”.. So I named my “Parrot” as “Tiya” 😀
Sharing with you the first shot from the D5100, which I shared.
