I'm super excited, as I found a Lowepro Slingshot 100 on craigslist for $25! They're normally $80 new, so I'm stoked that I got it for so cheap. Before, I only had the Nikon bag that came with my camera kit, and I hated that monster. Big and square with yellow trim and the Nikon name on it, it might as well have been flashing "I'M A CAMERA BAG! STEAL ME!" I hated that thing. It was uncomfortable to carry, and when I made my boyfriend carry it, the strap wasn't even big enough to fit over his shoulder. The slingshot looks like a little backpack with one strap, so it's much more discreet.
I'm hoping that this new bag will make me want to go out and use it, so I'll actually take more pictures. Recently I've gone on a few photo excursions, but my pictures have just turned out so. bad. Part of it was my failure to realize I was using a film lens and I had to manually turn the aperture ring on the lens, but let's just forget about that...
Hehe, so yeah. I'm hoping to get a 55-200mm lens for my Nikon, as the 70-210mm film lens I have creates a lot of glare on my digital camera. And after that, perhaps a wide angle lens. I would love that. (: But first, y'know, I need the money, haha.
If anyone has any suggestions of where to buy, what to buy, etc, please let me know! I've been looking at B&H Photo online, and their prices are great. But I love suggestions.
