Wanted to answer more of the questions you’ve been asking lately, so I’m going to be all over the place today. : )
[ 365 IDEA ]
First, just sharing another thought on what you’re recording/capturing … whether it’s for Project 365 or not. Think about a funny quirk or habit that you or one of your loved ones has right now. Not necessarily a lifetime/long-term thing, but just some little thing that years from now, you’ll hear yourself saying “Oh yeah! Remember when so-and-so was totally into … ” (fill in the blank).
Our Claire is obsessed with rollie pollie bugs lately. She goes outside numerous times a day, digging and searching for rollie pollies, and collecting them in a cup until we encourage her to put them back where they can survive.

[ WHY NIKON? ]
I’ve gotten a few questions about my DSLR, and why I’ve chosen the one I am currently using. First of all, for those of you who don’t know, my husband David really is the techie in our family. Not me. Between him and my ultra-techie-genius brother Kevin, I completely trust their technical choices.
That said, our current DSLR is the Nikon D90. We have always used Canon. Always. Until this camera came out in last September. We bought it literally the day before Crew was born because it was the first DSLR to offer video capability. We have loved doing video clips on our point & shoot for years (we never use a traditional camcorder anymore) and we wanted to try it with SLR quality. So despite the quirkiness of the feature (we have to manually focus while recording) … it is awesome video quality. And fantastic picture quality too, of course.
And now … Canon has the video feature on their SLR now. Go figure.
Oh, and someone wanted to know which lens I use. It’s the Nikon 18-105 mm.
[ BACKUP ]
Speaking of technology, what we use for backing up everything on our Mac is Time Capsule (the hard drive) with Time Machine (the program that comes with every new Mac).
