The time has come to move on. I’ve had my Nikon Coolpix 5000 for almost 4 years now. I remember buying it for about $1,200 when it came out in 2001. It was the cream of the crop for “point and shoot” digital cameras. It’s actually stood the test of time and is still strangely above par to most consumer digital cameras. It’s treated me wonderfully. It’s taken pictures of bands ranging from Sonic Youth to Alan Jackson to Craig David to Michelle Branch to Mouse on Mars to Bob Dylan to Roni Size.
But it’s time. It’s time to sell it to another camera lover who will take care of it just as I have.
If anyone is interested, I am auctioning my baby at Ebay. If anyone is seriously interested and makes me an offer I can’t refuse or I just simply like you, I might contemplate selling off of Ebay.
I’ll miss you, 5000.
