Expired Soy Milk is bad

I won't tell the details but you think somthing that has a shelf life of a year wouldn't have much on an impact a week after the drink by date.. but BELIVE me it had an affect.

D200... got it

So I made the purchase, local and just the Body...

The Upgrade rom my D70 is pretty profound. I feel like when I made the move from my Nikon 5400 to my D70 (from a point and shoot to a real camera)...

Well I feel that way again

D200 here I come ***Update***

So it's the D200...

I don't need the lens but my buddy does... so it makes more sense to get it with the camera to get him a deal.

can't wait but my deadlines are killing me till Friday or so

For Reasons that are complicated I was going to have my budy Travis buy the camera and have it shipped to him, this was his response:

Broadway photo was a complete nightmare to deal with. They tried to up-sale me real aggresively and I told them I wasn't interested. He kept trying and trying. I finally just said he was being real aggresive and I would like him to send me the camera I ordered. He told me "sir this is called capitalism and you live in America" He then went on to tell me that we ordered the Japanese model, all the menu's and directions would be written in Japanese with no options to change to English. The only way to get the English version would be to buy the package deal camera that essentially had all the stuff he was trying to sell me earlier for another 250 bucks. It sounds like complete crap to me but I didn't feel good about it so I told him to fuck off and I would like to cancel my order..........

so we still don't have a camera

... and the D70 Dies

Well my camera might be dead.. I loaned it to a good friend who will pay to have it fixed if it's possible. It was dropped.. the shutter fires but the LCD screen doesn't light up and it won't recognize cards (read or save). There's no physical damage and I can't see what might be the problem but I suspect it's an internal wire / solder break (hard reset did not work).

Now I don't know if it is possible and I don't think I would want to spend over $300 of my friends money to fix anyway (I may just ask for the cash to put toward a new body).

I'm invested in Nikon so you Canon people don't even try...

D200 or D80... yeah I gotta buy soon.. Body only

I drove home from San Jose seeing one great shot after the other
