New Camera!!!!

Most of the cameras I own are many years old and getting up there in the shutter count. My D700 is basically due to pop at any time! 

As you can see Im 15% over the expected life of the camera's shutter

My newest camera is the D750 and its awesome but I have had to send it off 3 times to Nikon for repairs so I decided it was time to get a new camera body.  I was planning on waiting until the start of next season to buy one but in order to keep my NPS status I needed to get a newer camera since 3 of mine no longer qualify and I got a sweet Black Friday deal.

Here she is! I got a new Nikon D500!!  This camera is sorta ground breaking. It is what the D750 should of been as in a Mini D5/D5. Its built like a tank, has the AF of the D5. PC sync ports. 10 FPS and what makes it so crazy is its NOT full frame! The whole not full frame thing has some people questioning the camera since a lot of people just think Full Frame is better.. But as technology improves so does the quality of Crop sensors.  I will do a full review of the new camera soon but I can say that at high ISO compared to my D750 ( a high ISO king ) that side by side it is very hard to tell the difference in files..

Thanks!
