A picture of the same A.orbicularis taken with the D7000 using the same 18-55mm VR lens

That's a really noticeable difference between the first two pics

I always enjoy your pics Jenn

Nice job with the camera and fish thumbs2:

Wow! I can really see the improvement when you post the pics together like that. They really are great shots, and Im sure they'll only improve from here out.

Makes my S700 look like an etch-e-sketch. :hmm3grin2orange:

Just beautiful and you fish look so awesome and healthy.

Picture 2 looks better but I'd also say that it seems to be better at white balance too.

I always thought the first pic was awesome...but wowee

The ones from the new cam really pop!

My main complaint with the D60 was its wonky white balance, I never managed to find settings for it to capture the fish naturally. Those were taken in full auto with standard flash. I can't wait to see the results when I actually learn how to use this thing :hmm3grin2orange:

You'll have to post some pics when you get your new camera in Aeon.

Thanks for the nice comments everyone, I do try to keep the fish looking as they should.

We shoot a D5000 and we love it...I bet the D7000 shoots like a dream!!! Nice shots too!

09-15-2011, 12:23 PM
Will do Jenn! Lets see how the Pentax fares.

If its half as good as those, I'll be satisfied.

09-15-2011, 01:32 PM
I wish my camera could take photos half as good as that, let alone my chili bone skills. Lol. Very Beautiful photos!!!:22:

09-15-2011, 05:52 PM
Thanks! It is a dream to shoot...tons more bells and whistles. The most impressive thing is how quick it is.

Nice i cant wait till i get my d7000

09-17-2011, 03:06 AM
You will love it, they are worth every penny :11:

Beautiful shots and fish! One of the most handsome Oscars I have seen.

Totally agree on the D7000, iv been wanting to upgrade to one from my D200 for awhile. Shots from the old CCD cams like the D60 or 200 require ALLOT more post work to get the results. It can be done though, a little photoshop time can save $$$ in the end lol :mrgreen:

D@mn I just blew 1200bucks for nothing :hmm3grin2orange:

Thanks that edited photo does look much better, and I will say if you are looking for an upgrade the D7000 is a good one to look at. Many reviews I have read/watched have stated it has higher image quality than the D3 and has many of the same features as the more expensive "pro" cameras.

Quite the difference, great shots.

09-19-2011, 03:16 PM
Wow, huge difference! Send the D60 to Lab_Rat @ xxx, ms. (Seriously, if you do want to sell, let me know how much you're looking to get for it.)

For now Im keeping it, that may change if I dont actually use it anymore. If anyone is interested in a POS Kodak Zi6 camcorder....:hmm3grin2orange:

Does it take betamax?

09-19-2011, 09:03 PM
Nah, its digital...has limited onboard memory and you can us an SD card to expand that.

09-19-2011, 09:10 PM
Dang... I need to find a way to use all my old betamax tapes.
