I have decided to get a digital SLR. I'm not sure which one yet, but after owning a top of the line compact digital camera (Nikon Coolpix 5700) I'm sure this is the way to go for me.
The image quality of the Coolpix 5700 is outstanding, the camera is easy to use and relatively compact. So why do I now want to get rid of it? Well I can't help comparing it to my old trusty analog SLR, a Nikon F-90x and I just don't get the same kick out of working with the Coolpix 5700. Why not? Well it is probably mostly the fact that all the controls are in a different place than I'm used to. When I tried out the Nikon D-100 digital SLR it felt right from the very beginning. Also, although the Coolpix 5700 has an excellent 8x ED-Zoom lens, I miss my 85mm f:1,8 lens - and my 16mm fish eye.
Conclusion: I am putting up my Nikon Coolpix 5700 for sale. It is an excellent camera that deserves more appreciation than I am able to give it.
For those of you who just want to see some photos here are a few. There'll be more as soon as I get my holiday photos sorted out. The links here point to images scaled down to 25% (no sharpening or other processing). Links to full resolution versions are at the bottom of the sales page. Here we go: Snake, Train Sunset, The Net, and Jens.

Must-see photography: Chinese photographer Zhou Hai shows some excellent black and white photography on a rather grim subject. His exhibition "The Unbearable Heaviness of Industry" is a series of posed portraits of Chinese labourers. Zhou Hai writes: " Industry provides the impetus for social development . The industrial stablishments upon which modern civilization is built-such as steel-making, imposes a heavy toll on those who take part in the process. These people form the very basis of an enormous infrastructure; yet, they are also seen as outcasts having to endure pain,physical or mental, in this great industrial age. In this country, the road to full industrialization is gradually but surely unveiling itself.There was a time when people on this road felt great pride. Now a market economy pervades, and so does a sense of loss and frustration for the labourers."

Most of you will know Magnum. Established in 1947 by Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bressson, George Rodger, and David 'Chim' Seymour, Magnum is the most prestigious photography agency in the world. The group's website contains some magnificent photography. It will take you hours to browse through the features and exhibitions available online. And if you register you can search and view 250.000 (watermarked) photos from their archives. Yum!
Update: If you choose to register so you can browse/search the Magnum archives make sure to let them know that you are an image buyer for a large ad agency or some such thing. Simply registerng as a photographer will get you access right away, but your account will be closed again. Today I got this in the mail: "The search facility on the Magnum Photos web site is aimed specifically at users within the photo-licensing and buying industry and, due to server capacity at this stage of development, we cannot open this section of the site to all users. For this reason, we cannot authorise your use of this section."

David Chin says: "A Picture's Worth invites visitors to share the memories, emotions or creative stories that are triggered by a photograph of personal significance. The site was set up basically because I love photography and writing."
I say: Excellent initiative and the best of luck with the project!
