    After a whole year without a camera, I finally decided to buy one and I went digital in the process!

    I did some research and I ended up buying the Nikon Coolpix 4300. Really cool camera and it´s very good for a novice photographer like me who wants to do a little better.


    Mine is like that, but it´s black, I guess that´s the european version of it.

    And I got a 256mb compact flash card with it!

    Hey congrats! I just got a new digital camera too except mine's a lowly 3.2 megapixel Canon Powershot A70. It's a great camera though!

    I too own a Nikon Coolpix. A very nice camera. Probably not the best, but it suits what I need it for.

    The one you have there Ivar has what looks like a "zoom" lens. Mine is just stationary. The frame zooms in and out. I went east to check on my money*, here is a pic. The first ever of me published here on TalkBass.

    Oh you must have missed the "show your peeping tom pics" thread. Someone had some pics of you playing air bass to the latest Korn album.

    Ívar, I have a similar Nikon cool pix,
    my son took it over the first day I got it.
    I got it back eventually, maybe someday he will give me the instruction book!

  12. Nice camera, Ivar.

    Now, your mission is to post a few pictures of those beautiful Iclandic women that we all admire! ;)

    Good luck with the camera.

    Thanks guys!

    I just came back from a weekend trip and I took lots of pictures of beautiful Icelandic landscape etc. Maybe I´ll pop up a couple of pics when I´ve uploaded them.

    The camera did not disappoint me in this trip.

    As I said before....

    Me likey! :D

  16. Yeah! I definitely second that!

    The quality of the pictures is great. The scenery is gorgeous. It makes me want to come to Iceland.

    Maybe next year. :)

    Very nice, Ivar.
