Photography Because an exposure is more than ISO, aperture and shutter speed....it's about the vision

Default New camera for the bag

I just got this off of e-bay. Fujji Fine Pix S3. It uses all Nikon F mount lenses and is a Pro grade crop sensor body. Built in vertical release and uses CF cards or micro drives.

S3 Pro? Looks good!

Had to research it myself. Wiki: "Like the S5 which superseded it, the S3 gained popularity amongst numerous, professional Wedding Photographers for its ability to more accurately render skin tones and for its wide dynamic range, compared to comparable digital cameras of its time."

The specs look nice on that camera I've been a Minolta, Canon guy myself. My latest is a 7D I find the lenses and good quality filters to be a plus.

I know very little about Nikon, so this was good to get me looking at 'that other brand' =:^]

I blew the shutter on my Canon 1DMkIII, so am back to my 1DMkIIn which is about the same vintage as this S3 Pro. May not be the latest, but still takes great photos as long as you know it's limitations.

I use a Nikon D80 myself but you will never go wrong with Fuji.
