Site Introduction and FAQ:
Hi. Thanks for visiting. Enjoy your stay. Extra towels are available at the desk. As always, proper attire is required at all times.
This wasn't originally intended to be an exhaustive site about Nikon cameras, but it has grown to have pretty comprehensive coverage of the Nikon CoolPix series. I started out just wanting to showcase a few interesting, fun and unusual things that you can do with these cameras, and it had grown from there. In keeping the site's beginnings, I have not posted a bunch of shots of family, cars, flower close-ups and cats or dogs; you can see plenty of camera samples on other sites.
See my really short "short list" of interesting camera sites right here!
If you would like to get one of the adapter rings (37mm step up) that I have used for a lot of the Coolpix shots, for your CP900 or CP950, I can highly recommend the anodized aluminum adapter from CKC power. It is very nicely made. They also have a variety of other adapters and cable releases for the 950.
FJCOM and FJNAME. My freeware DOS programs to unload your Fuji MX series or Toshiba PDR-M1 cameras, and rename their files. Get them on the bottom of the PDR-M1 tidbits page here.
Site FAQ and Humor Alert:
Yes, do I like cats, mostly. No, we don't have one. No, I can't tell you which camera or telescope to buy, I would be happy to tell you what I like about mine though. No, I'm not (overly) fixated on Nikon products. Yes, I know that I've mis-spelled a few things; I'm just testing you. Sure, I would like to hear your own unusual camera tidbits. Yes, if I'm wrong I'd like to hear about it if you are mostly polite. No, you should not pay any actual money for a DJ-1000 camera. Yes, I did pick the original site color scheme on purpose. (OK, I've given in and fixed it, Everything is so sedate and boring now, but now you can read it). Yes, this site is kid safe, except for the extreme boredom aspect of it. You will not find any ads on this site, I like it that way.
