    Any photography buffs? Did I get a good deal?

    Well I wanted a camera to cover E3 (10%) and take pictures of my first child in November (90%).

    Really did my research, got familiar with prices etc.

    On craigslist I picked up a Nikon D80 which was gifted to a 17-year old kid who is a photography buff in Dec. 2008, he had several cameras and this thing is absolutely indistinguishable from a brand new camera. I mean MINT condition.

    For $450 got the body, AF-S Nikkor 18-55 mm lense, all manuals, battery, box, etc. The camera had 1,063 clicks on it, total. IMO a fockin steal based on what I know but want another opinion.

    Helli good camera I have one but gotta say I use my Sony Cybershot 12.1 MP more. It has movie so I can do the video thing with the boys and also it is small enough to carry in my pocket.

    coaching baseball :thumbsup: a few friends and I have been volunteer coaching a team of little leaguers for about 7 years now.

    we're in the upper level league so it takes up a TON of time (three games a week plus practices on saturday for the first half of the season, four games a week and a practice on saturday down the stretch). and days you aren't at the ball field you're laying on the couch recuperating :thumbsup:

    plus i'm not really playing anything other than my FIFA manager's mode.
