Nikon makes some good stuff. I bought it with the change I had saved when my 1st Daughter was born because I was missing to many shots with the sony cybershot my wife gave me for x-mas. The sony seemed like it needed to contemplate life before it actually took the shot.

My D-100 is great but it weights a ton. I use my Sony Mavica that I keep near the tank to get those once in a life time shots. For an old camera it takes excellent pictures.

As long as it takes the shot when you tell it, all is good.

Very true. What type of lens are you using for your tank shots?

Did you find plans for that canopy or did you make it up as you go?

I drew up a rough sketch, bought the wood and went for it.

Thanks TC, this allows you to get really close to your subjects? The smallest lens I have is a AF Nikkor 18-70 1:3.5-4.5G ED no macro.

for those really good close up shots you need to get a macro.
do they make a fish eye lense with macro? that might get some interesting shots.
