    Hi,

    my older Sony camera died about three weeks ago and so I had a quite good reason to buy a new and better one. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] I bought a Nikon Coolpix 4300 camera - remembering the nice closeups Tony takes with his predecessor of this camera.

    N. macfarlanei:




    N. diatas:


    All pictures are already shrinked - 4M pixel are just too much for pictures on the web...

    Cheers

    Joachim

    Nice pictures & plants as always Joachim [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
    I remember you said on your site that you found N.macfarlanei a slow grower, has it speeded up now? My three plants are still quite small and need a bit of a boost! How large are the pitchers?

    Is the N. diatas the meadow form?

    Did you get the N. argenti sorted out and have you photos of that one?

    cheers

    Beautiful macfarlanei!

    Those tendrils are incredibly long...makes the plant look like something from outer space [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]

    Something to look forward to with my N. macfarlanei!

    Congrats, Nikon makes very good cameras! I struggled with the decision between an Olympus with 10x optical zoom or a Nikon with 8x but in the end I got myself the Nikon Coolpix 5700 last year which is I think is 5.5 megapixels and has far more photographers gadgetry than I'll ever use but at least it's there if I want to play around in the future. I forget does the 4300 have the lense that can be bent up and down for photographing at weird angles? I know one of their camera models does this, I could think of some uses for that!

    Now, start taking more pics of your plants! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Nice pics Joachim! You can see the little hairs under the N. macfarlanei lid too.

    I love my little Nikon coolpix990 ;> Even the 3.3 megapixel is far more than enough for posting images and the closeup capabilities are exceptional. My model has the twisting feature and it does come in handy when trying to get a shot at a weird angle. Particularly as I don't set things up in the greenhouse..I just go in and shoot pics freehand. Occasionally moving the pot and pitchers if at all.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Hi,

    Bill, the biggest N. macfarlanei pitcher is about 12 cm high. This plant still is a slow and picky grower for me not producing any pitchers during the summer. I grow this plant for five years now and it was always difficult but from conversation with other growers I heared their plants were growing at a similar pace.

    The N. diatas is the same plant of unknown source I already showed some time ago. It is definitely not from Rob but may be similar to one of his clones. The pitcher is quite small being around 5cm in height.

    I got the N. argentii, but won't show pictures before it has setteled in to my conditions and starts to pitcher again.

    Oh Tony, I thought you had the Coolpix 885, the 4300 is the successor of this camera. I also had a look at the 5700 but I'm no photographer being able to use all features of it. Extra macro lenses are available, but I haven't thought of getting one yet.

    This is a pic of The N. fusca Sarawak from Rob. Judging from my computer display the colour is a bit to pink, pitchers are more reddish in colour.



    Many thanks to all others for the nice comments.

    Cheers Joachim
