Thank you very much Norman. By the way, about a week ago I finally purchased a new digital camera. I bought the Canon S410. I'm just starting to get used to it and will eventually post some images from it. Best wishes and thanks again.
I just had a look at this Hauser gallery again after some time and i am amazed again. You really have the eye to make a great shot and your images always do a very good job at presenting the area to the viewer so one gets the impression of really being there...
4 weeks really is OK. Glad to hear that.
The 8700 surely is a great camera. But now that you consider paying around 800 bucks you may also have an eye on Nikon's new digital SLR cameras, like the D70 which is even better than Canon's EOS 300D. Take your time. These cameras that you consider are really great, but i have a good friend with such a camera and believe me he keeps buying more and more optional hardware, spending a lot of money and carrying a huge backpack and tripod with him all the time sometimes complaining about the weight.
Personally i think these cameras are excellent when you want to go for some specific shots or for travelling cities. But i do not think that i would ever be happy on a long and nice trip with them. Well, it's just my personal opinion and also i am just a poor man.
So there you go :-)
Actually, i am sometimes thinking about selling the 4200 at ebay and buying another camera, but in the end i am happy with what i got for the prize. IF i ever really sell it i would go for one of Canon's S serie model. These are great cameras. Sharp, hardly any barrel distortion, very good battery life, total manual control and about the same prize.
But well, as soon as i can affort it i will buy me a dog and that's the most important thing for me now :-)
:-) Hi Norman. Yes, I did get my 4200 back. I sent it to Nikon on July 12 and received it back on August 9. So, even with shipping in both directions, they received the camera and fixed it in less than 4 weeks. Overall, I give Nikon customer service the highest ratings possible. Every representative I talked with was very, very helpful and courteous and the camera was returned in great shape and working just as it should be. Nikon replaced the entire zoom assembly, double-checked the white balances and CCD and exposure settings, among other things. The repair would have cost $181 if it hadn't been under warranty! Thankfully it was under warranty.
I'm enjoying the camera greatly. I like it better than the 3700 I was using, although the 3700 is a nice little camera. I've also been using PhotoShop Elements 2.0 recently, which I like quite a bit. I don't know if Neat Image can be used as a plugin in Elements or not, but I'll check it out.
Now that Nikon is offering a $200 rebate on the 8700, I've been eyeing that camera. It preserves and resolves details much better than the small point & shoot cameras, and I think it would be a nice compliment to the 4200! So maybe sometime in the future you'll see some 8700 images in my galleries!
*sighs* 2004-08-10 that is, sorry for spamming...
Ok, the exif says 2004-08-02, so it must be your fixed 4200. Glad you have it returned now. How long did it take? What's your impression of Nikon's support?
Some nice ones here again. Your 4200 already returned fixed? Or is it a serie of earlier shots?
