Got a new camera for Christmas

6 posts in this topic

I bet you were expecting some pictures, weren't you? devil.gif


My wife and I decided to go together and get ourselves a new camera for Christmas. She likes to photograph just about anything and I was getting tired of fighting with my old Mavica for coin pics. On Christmas day we ordered a Canon Digital Rebel and a 100mm macro lens. It finally arrived Thursday but we were heading out of town Friday morning so I didn't get a chance to take any coin pics until yesterday.


I am very pleased with this camera, compared to my old Mavica. I still have a lot of learning to do but I got some great shots for my first day. I promise to try to load one or two tonight.


This all got me to thinking. Does anyone use the registry just as a place to show their collection? I was thinking I could put some coins in their just for show since I will never have a competitive set. What is the limit on image size to add to the registry?


Even if I don't bother with a registry I should be able to post some coins from time to time. smile.gif

My Registry set will never be a serious contender for the Type Set throne, but I listed the coins anyway just to show the images and perhaps have people read what I wrote. At one point the set was as high as fifth place, but I removed some coins and then didn't add anything back. I would be surprised if it were still in the top twenty.

My sets just keep dropping in rank and dropping... like the Energizer! insane.giflaugh.gif Show and tell is what it's all about. wink.gif


Great pics chinook - a solid 66, possibly a 67, depending on appearance in-hand, although not technically. (I have a few of those!)

I registerd last night but didn't have time to actually create any sets. I didn't even realize that the registration was different from registering for the forums.


Now, do they have a silver war nickel registry? I need to show off my Hoot pedigree coins. yay.gif


Nice pics chinook. But I can't grade Jeffersons any better than PCGS can so I won't bother to guess. wink.gif


Did you check out my wooden two center pics I posted last night? I love this camera. 893applaud-thumb.gif
