11:40 pm - I bought a new camera today
I bought a new camera today. I've been wanting a digital SLR for awhile, and it doesn't look like the other technology I'm really interested in is going to happen soon.
The other technology is a new sensor chip that's layered with a layer for each color. Current chips have a little pattern on their surface where each spot only senses one color. This can lead to interesting little (though barely noticeable most of the time) artifacts because it's guessing colors from the color of the surrounding pixels.
Anyway, this new camera is the Nikon D70. It's a 6 megapixel camera, and several review sites rank it more highly than the new 8 megapixel Canon Digital Rebel XT.
I took some test shots out my window today, and thought I'd share them all with you.
Each picture here links to the much larger picture that I originally downloaded from the camera. I also use Coral, so the pictures may load slowly, or may not load the first time.
