been playing with my camera more... lovin' it. the resolution on the pictures is amazing. i can't wait now for the rechargable battery to show up.... this one's going to get drained in no time (according to reviews) so I can't really leave my room and the AC adaptor and go on a shooting spree outside.
the included NIkon software is wonderful ... no bullshit: your camera shows up in "My Computer".. open it and inside are thumbnails of your pictures. drag'n'drop them to wherever, or double-click to run a simple image viewer. helluva lot better than the Kodak software my dad's camera came with... I can't stand cartoon software. If a company doesn't respect its users enough to figure some might not be morons, I won't buy anything from them. Nikon's now on my very damn cool list. Wonderful camera, wonderful tech support, wonderful software.
I'd like to get my coolpix working with gphoto in linux, but according to andre julliard (the wine maintainer), I need to build a 2.4 kernel because the 2.2 USB backport doesn't have a few of the functions which are necessary for the usb nikon driver. oh well... maybe i'll just use windows.
i'm going to clean my room now, then work on LJ ... anything but take a nap, which I'm really tempted to do. i want to get on a normal sleeping schedule. if i let myself be exhausted until tonight at 10 or 11pm, then i can sleep well... but i'll probably wake up then at 3am or 4am, my body thinking it's time to wake up after my typical ~5 hours of sleep .
