I'm so excited! For Christmas I splurged on a brand new Nikon D90 for myself! This is a huge upgrade to the Nikon D70s that I've been shooting with for years! Then my parents bought me an awesome speedlight for my camera which I am really excited about.
Sorry about the poor quality, I took these on my iPhone!
When I got the new camera my mom suggested I take a picture with my old camera and my new camera to compare the difference. Challenge accepted!! I knew the Nikon D90 was capable of much higher ISO's with less noise, so I went into a room in my house where there wasn't a lot of natural light coming in and took a picture of the little white plastic Christmas tree I had on my dresser.
Both of these pictures were taken with the same lens, and all the same settings. 50mm lens, ISO 1000, f/1.8, 1/60 second.
I couldn't believe the difference. Both were taken with automatic white balance settings but the new camera actually got clear whites and very natural colors! Also there was a lot of noise and distortion on my old camera with the high ISO and hardly any noise on my new camera!! I can't wait to see what else it can do!!
