It's not that I don't love taking photos...

It’s just that I find it hard to find the time to do it. I want to take photos of the boys, but I know that I’ll be lucky to get any of them in focus, the metering will be all wrong, or the colour will be out, or... my pet hate at the moment, they’ll be full of noise.

I’m getting sick of my D60 body, it just can’t help me get the photos I want. The only lens I have that has autofocus built into the lens is my kit lens, the other two I have to focus manually. DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW HARD IT IS TO CAPTURE MOVING CHILDREN IN FOCUS MANUALLY??? It’s damn near impossible!

Add that to the fact that with it getting to the darker time of year and therefore less light to work with, I find myself having to go for higher ISO’s, which means NOISE. I hate you noise, you are horrible and you make my precious children seem fuzzy. They are not fuzzy!

So... I’ve decided to start saving. I want a D90. I want an HD video, I want higher ISO’s to work WITHOUT giving me so much damn noise, and I want to be able to actually USE an auto-focus feature that SHOULD HAVE BEEN IN THE D60 TO BEGIN WITH.

I figure it’ll only take me, oh... a year or two(?!) to save up, and by that time it’ll be an ‘old’ model and maybe a lil reduced in price.

Or hey, if anyone has a random £700 lying around, or a D90 that they don’t use and want to give away for free... please feel free to send it to me!

Now I’m off to have a nosey out the hallway window to see all the drunken people wandering by...

Happy Hallowe’en everyone!
