Nikon D5000 hits wired.com's Gadget Blog

Looks like my unboxing view surge is starting to taper off, but a few new websites have been picking up the story. I'm proud to say that Wired.com is among the latest, and they have some more lengthy commentary than the others have so far.

Osprey and hidden chick

Put up a video of the camera shooting an Osprey and chick. I could only get the ‘82 Manual Focus Vivitar 400mm lens on the RRS head with this camera so it through off the metering. Will have to figure something else out.

Vimeo is below, non embedded version is here:

The vimeo version looks very washed out to me. So… Original file is here:

Thanks to making the front page of Engadget and Gizmodo I had over 150,000 Flickr Views Yesterday alone. Through Friday I had just over 200k LIFETIME. Should be interesting to see what happens Monday morning when people catch up on those sites updates from the weekend.



Still getting tons of hits from NikonRumors.com too!

I got a D5000 to test, then I didn't, then I did

Best Buy got their initial shipment near me this afternoon, I picked one up so I could have a backup to my D300 that I could leave in the car without feeling completely paranoid about losing $3k+ if I got broken into, but when I got it home and unboxed, er.... the box was empty. Called Best Buy back completely furious, it turns out they had unloaded mine as the floor model, so I ran back and got another copy. Unboxing pics and a few test shots will follow....

Edit: Unboxing shots now up -here-

New league, new rules!

Stealing is in (neat), on deck batters out (DUMB!!!!) What kind of wimp leagues bans warming up batters???

Called pitches are really in tho! Looked like about a 14 year old kid was calling it, he was pretty inconsistent but a good start for the kids learning the real rules...
