Is Happy Day! Is Happy Day! It was an exciting end-of-week at the Chris L residence.

First Is Happy Day! arrived Thursday. This is the Vostok Europe watch that Larry gave away as the prize for the BCS National Championship game contest. Pretty nice watch, these are made in Lithuania using Russian movements made by Vostok (and apparently upgraded a bit).









I wore it all day Friday with the original strap with white stitching. I changed to this strap Saturday. Unfortunately I forgot entirely to take pics of the exhibition back showing the extra finish work on the movement. Larry, thank-you once again for this. I've wanted to buy a Vostok Europe watch for years, but never got around to it.

Ordinarily I would have been taking photos of a new watch immediately after getting it, but that leads me to my other Is Happy Day! ... a new camera!

I ordered a new Nikon D7000 DSLR camera body, second battery, and remote shutter release on Tuesday of last week, and it all arrived in 2 shipments on Friday. I spent Friday night familiarizing myself with it a bit (not that steep of a learning curve stepping up from my D80 body). Then on Saturday I headed out Prairie du Sac, Wisconsin to photograph the eagles feeding there this time of year.











Spent today taking pics of watches and processing those eagle pics. smile

The original strap didn't look bad, but I thought the thick white stitches gave a "narrow" illusion. (n/t)

I give more info about lenses in my companion post in the photography forum. wink

Chris L102January 21, 2013 04:23AM

Is there a crop factor with the new body, so the 500mm becomes maybe 750mm?

Smaug63January 21, 2013 04:14PM

yes, it's a DX sensor size camera, therefore 1.5 crop factor (n/t)

Bill J.65January 21, 2013 07:44PM
