Formerly 'Rambling with a cantankerous old mule"
So, yesterday a friend from church called me to get him a quote for a Canon Powershot something or other. Hello! Sure, I used to shoot with a small Canon, and it served me well, but Canon cameras stopped delighting me, or being of any interest, when I switched to Nikon around three years ago. Now “I Am Nikon” Ha! Despite having a camera attached to me semi-permanently, like an extra limb, I don’t actually know all there is to know about all cameras on the market… I leave that up to my friend Kim in Madagascar…
And whatever you do, please don’t call me for a quote on any Nikon gear either – I’m working for a newly-created division within Nikon SA called Nikon Africa Trust, and don’t have a clue about prices and specs and deals currently available. I’m sure your local camera dealer would be a great deal more knowledgeable than I. And just because I have a camera doesn’t mean that I feel like taking wedding photos, syrupy family portraits or photos of your baby dressed as a fluffy bunny. Sorry, that was in my former life (the days of my special orange wedding shirt, orange shades and dented film SLR – the one that fell on the Great Wall of China).
I’ll write a bit more about what the Trust is all about in a future post, but for now I’m sure you’d like to know what gear I’m using (none of which is actually mine, by the way). Here it is – drool away.
