As promised, a update. This photo of me is taken with the Sigma SD14. If you have been reading my blog you will understand that this camera is very unique in how it captures colour. I have been going to photograph people with it but have not had a chance. So here is a photo of me with a hair cut ready for the Christmas season. The camera I am holding is also one of my favorites, and is proving to be a good seller with its resent price reduction, the Pentax K10D. Bill

First snow in Grand Forks. You may think the first camera I would pick up this morning would be the new Nikon D300, but no, a quick photo on a tripod with a relativity simply Sigma Sd14 is more for me. I haven't the time to read the book and set up the Nikon. I would rather leave that to the person that buys one. For me a quick photo and a hair cut. Bill

Nikon D300 update, it is here. I will update you again this week when I have time for a hair cut. For more info on this camera Ken Rockwell received his last week and has been posting info on his site found here.

The Nikon D300 is here, well almost here, I received an invoice today for the first one which means it will come today or tomorrow. As of right now it is unsold, you could be one of the first in Canada to own one. It is also priced about the same as the U.S. only in Canadian dollars with a Canadian warranty. There is no review posted of this camera that I know of as it is still too new, but dpreview have posted a preview found here.

This is too much fun. Here are two more photos from the Sigma sd14 that I have posted earlier in colour. I do get to play a little on Sunday. Look for the highlight detail on the flag pole. Bill

Black and white with the Sigma Sd14. In the Sigma software this took me all of 1 minute to make the black and white I wanted. I can hardly wait to print some on our new Fuji Pearl gloss paper. It has been a busy week and no time for photos, but this morning the river look so peacefully with a little ice. These are off the deck ISO 50 too cold for a tripod.
