It's about time

Andy and I were married in California then honeymooned in Costa Rica for 2 weeks after and, in the days before digital cameras, we returned home with 13 rolls of film. After sifting through hundreds of disappointing pictures it was clear that our attempts to capture the unforgettable wildlife and landscape of Costa Rica were lost in poor picture quality and weak zoom.

We promised then and there to never be caught in such a situation again, and within days we purchased a new digital camera. The Canon PowerShot has documented our for better or worse and carried us faithfully through the past 5 years.

Since Roscoe's birth, our minor obsession with photographing our lives has become even more pronounced. We don't want to miss a beat. The video function has seen a lot more use of late as well. Ever at the ready, strapped to our hip, toted from place to place, we never leave home without our camera.

But picture technology has advanced since 2005, and while we've made due, the quality of our photos just aren't what they used to be. Last week we came to the conclusion that it was time to part ways with the old, and bring in the new.

Introducing The Nikon SLR D5000:

It arrived today! With 12.3 megapixels and 720p HD video capability, I'm ready to get serious.
