I finally did it!

Recommended Posts

I have been thinking about buying a digital SLR for over a year and pondered over several. I finally decided on a Nikon D80 paired with a Nikkor 18-135mm lens. I have been thinking about this one for about 3 or 4 months and decided today was the day when the wife gave the approval!!!

I realize that this barely touches some of the Mercededs/BMW of cameras that you guys have but after only reading through the first couple of pages I am quickly realizing I have no idea what any of it means. grin

So you probably won't see any amazing shots from this guy but I'm pretty excited to turn it on as soon as the battery is charged and see what I can do!

jer, way to go, man!

You have all the camera and lens you need to take smashing pictures. With digital cameras it's the sensor that really counts unless you're in a very demanding sub-specialty like action sports, and the DSLR bodies at the D80 level come with great sensors.

Have fun with and and show us some stuff. And don't be afraid to ask questions.

Congratulations!! I use the D80 also and I'm extremely happy with it. You'll have a lot of fun with it for sure. That lens is a great lens to get you going also.

Glad to have another Nikonian on the forum.

    • If anyone here is in the market for an electric smoker, give me an IM. I will soon be listing my MES 40 that has only been used 1 time. It is barely even seasoned!
    • Not yet, but I have been thinking of trying one....
    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
    • Dry brine with Mortons Tenderquick, amount directions per pound are on the package in a ziplock in the fridge. Add seasonings like onion, garlic, black pepper, maple sugar or brown, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg. What ever you prefer. Take meat out of brine and let sit in Fridge overnight. Smoke around the 130 degree mark for 12 hours (for my liking) or as smokey as you like. Cut into 1/8" slices and cook in the oven 425 degrees for 20 to 30 min to your desired crispness. 
    • I just bought two panels that I am going to trim slightly to replace one of the 3 grates on my Big Horn grill... I actually have a buddy that received them this weekend for fathers day and say they work just as advertised on his pellet grill.... I will give an update next week when they arrive.
    • never heard of it....  
    • Since we are talking about searing stations, etc....   Has anyone ever used the Grill Grate product on their pellet grills?   https://www.grillgrate.com/shop-grillgrates/standard-grillgrates/pellet-grills/
    • You've got the right idea. There are a ton of bacon recipes here on HSO if you search for bacon - I've pasted one here to what seemed like one of the more popular brines. I made bacon once, and it turned out OK, but it's a long process.  Good luck and let us know how it turn out.
