Yesterday Nikon officially discontinued my Nikon D700. I have owned her since the first week that she came out in mid 2008. Yes I keep referring to her as her and not an it because like a lot of us who travel alone we become attached. Yesterday, when the announcement happened surprisingly my D700 didn’t just up and die. Today’s modern digital cameras are becoming very similar to yesterdays film cameras. We are at a point where the technology is so good that these items wont become irrelevant after their lifecycle.
I have been viewing Ming Thein’s “Inspirations from an older cameras” series and it reminds me how these cameras will live on as long as we put them to work. If you haven’t seen Ming’s series please take a look here and enjoy browsing.
