Out with the old

My new camera arrived in the post yesterday. After endless hours of reading reviews and forums over the past several months I finally decided to go ahead and purchase a Nikon D90. I had planned to wait another month or two before parting with my money in the hope that its price might decrease, but the opposite is happening. With the ever devaluing British pound Nikon announced a price increase at the beginning of February. Last week they announced another 10% price increase , which will come into effect on 1st May. I decided now was the time to buy.

The advantage of new cameras increasing in value means that old equipment does too. My D50, which served me very well during most of The Long Ride Home, found a new owner through Ebay, as have several lenses and a compact camera. Judging by the size of the D90 manual, it’s probably a good thing I’ve bought it four months before departure.

  1. I will be carrying a tripod and two lenses. I will keep the lenses in the handlebar bag and will mainly use a telephoto lens which will be on the camera 90% of the time. The equipment will get dusty, so I’ll just have to hope it doesn’t break!

  3. Hi Peter,
    will you be carrying tripod/lenses etc?
    How did you protect your equipment from the dust and bumps of the road on TLRH?

    Really looking forward to seeing your pics…
