    Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening/Dead-of-Night (depending where you are now),

    Last night the 'rents and I went down to my sister and brother-in-law's house to look at their wedding pictures that finally came in from their September wedding. the pictures were pretty decent, but more of that anon in another thread.

    The real purpose of this post is to get some insight. My new bro gave me (well, permantly loaned) his old camera. I was wondering what y'all could tell me about it. I'm not looking for technical how-to stuff (although that's of course always welcome). I was more looking for things the manual wouldn't tell me:
    -it's a crappy cam
    -it's a damn good cam
    -it's finiky (SP) when it's too cold
    -you have to hold it just so to make it work...

    Anyway, y'all get the idea.

    So, here's the specs:

    Nikon N6000
    AF Nikkor 50mm 1:1.8
    Rokunar A 52mm (I think this is a filter??)
    Tamron AF 70-300mm 1:4-5.6 (then it says ? - 1.5m(4.9ft), Ø58
    Promaster Spectrum 7 58mm (I think this, too, is a filter??)

    Thanks as always!
