Return of the Son of Photopost!

Rented a cabin out in the Stockholm archipelago weekend before last, so we could jump up before sunrise and catch the best light of what was probably going to be the last "warm" (see: consistantly above 10 degrees) week for this year.

Was a long day, up at 4:30, but it ended up being a beautiful Saturday and well worth it:

Pretty epic shots man. Shakey reckons you use a pentax k-7 is this true?

My father wanted a better camera for his article in the local paper, something with a wide angle lens or at least something capable for these shots.
He bought a nikon coolpix p7000 or something.

K-7 it is, though the bug photo is taken with the missus D90 and macro lens.

P7000 is probably pretty good. It seems to sit somewhere in between a point and shoot and DSLR.

There are a few compact cameras out there that let you swap lenses now as well. I've heard good things about the Panasonic DMC-GF1 for example.

I'm not really a gear whore though, so my opinion might not count for shit ;)

Thanks WW. The bug was nice and still, waking up early in the morning, and I had something very convenient to rest the camera on and make small adjustments. i would never have been able to get down that low with a tripod.

Her D90 is very nice too.
