Got my camera, 1st thoughts, So what would you do today
Dec 4, 2012

Came in the mail yesterday afternoon.  After battery charging it was too dark outside to do anything much and had my son's Christmas show to go to.  Took new D5100 and old Coolpix L20 to show.  The new camera pictures were not great but better than my old camera.  Took many pictures with D5100 but most were out of focus.  Hoping this was my lack of skill, I've read others having focus problems at low light.

I am very happy I got the 55-300mm lens vs the 55-200mm.  The extra range I think will make a difference.

Thanks to everyone here for all the help.

So if you got your 1st DSLR today.  What would you do?  Should I sit with the book and go over and over and over, or should I take it outside and play?  By the way, it's unseasonably warm today.
