New presents for Jen

I'm going to the Vineyard in a week or so and decided to buy myself a present or two for the trip ... and just for the rest of the summer.

Before I went to Ireland I bought myself a Nikon D3000 as a graduation present - and I really like it. I am a complete novice about all the functionality but regardless very happy with the camera. Now, if only I would finish editing my Ireland pictures and share those.... a project for another day.

The camera came with what I would call a basic, all purpose lens that has been very useful ... but I've been hoping for a bit more zoom at times. So I bought myself a new lens that should take care of this for me.

In order to save some bucks, I did buy it refurbished off eBay for a fraction of the new price - which is great. I can't wait to capture the beauty of the Gay Head Cliffs, Edgartown Light, and more ....

The last purchase I made this morning is pretty neat or so I think. I only wish I had it before I went to Ireland! I bought a new memory card that will fit both my "point and shoot" and my "big" camera. The cool part of it is that it records the location of where you take each picture - so there will be no more trying to figure out the location of that gorgeous sunset.

The Eye-Fi card had a few options - or levels - but I decided to go with one step down from the top. The only difference being that this one won't store RAW images - which is fine for my purposes. I also bought this one off eBay but brand new, not used like the lens.

Can't wait for my vacation!
