Tag: Nikon A

Bookstore Cat

I got to take a Nikon A camera out for a day of shooting. This photo of Padraig, one of the cats at A Novel Idea, a wonderful used bookstore in downtown Lincoln.





I can’t say that I would purchase a Nikon A for myself. The controls are a little weird- the On/Off switch feels like a zoom toggle from regular point and shoots, and the Shutter Speed and Aperture control dials felt backwards, even though we figured out that they weren’t. Also, the RAW files aren’t compatible with any software I have, or with the trial version of Adobe Photoshop Elements I downloaded just to try to convert the files. That said, I have no complaints about the image quality, which is beautiful. It’s just the controls that threw me off.
