My first pub night with this group. A nice mix of individuals. Digital is in. Film might be out. Everyone has an opinion. Of course, I think my new Nikon D200 is great. Others tout Canon as the best. Pentax latest digital sits proudly at one table. Many others waiting for the next announcement to upgrade. The flexible Gorillapod is the latest gizmo to compete with the standard three-legged tripod. A bit of beer is consumed but not too much. Most would prefer to save their pennies for the next photographic offering.
For everyone who owns a new Nikon D200 there is the discussion of whether or not their particular model has the dreaded banding issue.
