New Camera — Nikon Coolpix 5700

My family is going on a trip to Greece for two weeks at the end of this month for my brother’s college graduation. We’re leaving May 24 and returning June 10, but I’ll write more about the trip in another post.

So, I bought myself a new digcam with some of the proceeds from my recent freelance-to-hire gig (which is still on-going). The Nikon Coolpix 5700 is a 5.0 megapixel camera with an 8x optical zoom. I suspect that Nikon may be releasing a new camera to replace it over the summer since they’re currently offering a $100 rebate (c’est la vie).

So, I bought the camera and some accessories as well:

And conveniently, I saw over the weekend that Half Price Books had National Geographic’s Photography Field Guide for just $10 (the list price is $25). I already had the original, but I picked up the other books in the series — “People and Portraits” and “Landscapes” (and there’re probably more copies still there).

  1. Sure, I’d be happy to bring them along :). Would you like me to bring all of them, or is there one in particular that you have in mind?

  2. Did you compare any low end cameras? I’m looking for a little knock-around camera but I haven’t really had the time to shop around. I’d also be interested in seeing some samples from the Nikon on here if you get time. Looks like a nice camera.
