This describes my husband to a T. He keeps claiming to want to learn photography, but finding the actual time and motivation to follow up on his "interest" is usually slow in coming. Last week I showed him the scene modes on his D60, though (I hadn't bothered to show him, back when he was supposedly "learning photography") and whatd'yaknow? Now the D60 has been out of the closet more times in the last week than it had been in the last year. He's even asked me for, and visited, the DigiTutor site! He's lovin' it.

Just think what he'd do with "Hi-Key" and "Low-Key" scene modes. Next thing you know, he might even decide he needs a new lens.

Believe me, all ye shocked nay-sayers. Nikon knows what they're doing. It's a perfectly legal version of bait-n-switch: sell them a really super cool P&S and they end up with an SLR … and with any luck, all the new NEEEEEDS that come with it.
