Just to celebrate getting the job I got myself one of these

Sooo much better than my old Fuji S7000

My current dream camera: http://www.nikondigital.com/main.html?page=d2xs

Of course I won't pay $4600 for a camera especially since the resolution is still 25% less then a 35mm roll of film. It does show that the best digital SLRs are quickly catching up to the best 35mm SLRs. If things keep up this way then I suspect we will see the introduction of 16-17 megapixel SLRs in the next two years with them becoming mass market in 4 years or so. That is the point when the digital camera will officially be better then the 35mm and that's when I willo trade up.

yeah that is a nice one - but too massive for me!

I'm happy enough with 6million pixels - its more than enough for A4 sized enlargments and with a bit of work you can go a bit bigger than that. I thought about the canon 350D for the extra resolution but it would have ended up costing almost twice what I paid and the controls are more intuitive on the pentax

The main reason why I personally will end up sticking with Nikon is because I already own their lenses and it's to late to switch now.

It's never too late to switch

Oerdin

OK, it would be to expensive to switch.

But would it be better for your karma? Yes°!

I hit the ° key accidently, but yes° looks nice somehow. Even more positive.

I don't have one of those keys. :(

^ mine too

but playing around I found this one ₧ Alt-158 WTF is that?

Darkstar

What? It looks like:
Pts

on my current keymapping. I'd guess its something the font creater tossed in for his own fun. Like those heart and smiley faces you often find in font sets.

hmm...
alt-158 ×
alt-0158 ˛

???
anyway, ₧ could be useful as shorthand for Points in many tables I post, thanx!!!
Although, it's more likely to mean Pesetas :)

This one ¤ I've always wondered about. It's just shift-4 on the swedish keyboard.

MoSe

cool, Sh-4 is $ here, hehe

¤ is alt-0164 by me, and Character Map names it "Currency Sign"
I saw it used by MS Word as table formatting marker

According to wikipedia it's a generic currency sign, used when you don't have access to the correct one. What it's doing on the swedish keyboard I have no idea.
