HD Movies via a Real Camera
I was once really into taking pictures. It was an artistic outlet that went away, as I narrowed down outlets in life. I still have my SLR 35 MM cameras from yesteryear. I have not checked lately but does anyone still sell 35 mm film? Seriously?
So, when it dawned on me that I had purchased my last 3 digital cameras saying someday I am going to man up and get a real one, it was time to do so. I took a quick inventory of my old hardware and saw it was a bunch of old Canon and Pentex stuff from the late 80’s.
Clearly, it was time to start over and embrace this thing called the 21 st century. Ya ya, you are laughing at me, but be honest, how much old crap do you still have in the basement of your life, that you havent used in a decade or two?
Accepting, that it is time to buy my first actual DSLR, I started shopping online, like a virgin at the local wedding dress factory. Its true, I have not bought a real camera in decades. I am way over due. I am feeling empowered here when it hits me. I honestly dont know diddly about digital cameras of today.
Ugh, what to do… seek directions? I am obviously not well known for this trait historically speaking. So, I do some deep thinking, and remember that one of my mentors, happens to be a semi famous photographer if your into weird bugs.
End result, he talks me out of my first idea of a camera and suggests instead the Nikon D5000 with its built in HD movie mode. Which sounds absolutely perfect for the little movies I want to record of my Daughters Killing fish… unlike their Dad has lately, ok lets be honest, since I was basically their age. I have no idea what kind of curse I caused, but its been decades now since I was able to catch fish like the neighbors do.
Stay tuned for future HD movies of girl fisherwoman, I hope.
