    Those owl shots are too wonderful for words. Good job.

    Help me pick one...

    I vote for the first one with different font. I'm guessing that your target market is families, and, if so, I think the romantic/fantasy/magical effect of the first one will grab people's attention. And, it is very classy at the same time.

    Battery Removal

    Hi Vernon, I just noticed the quote at the bottom of your post: "A man is not old until his regrets take the place of his dreams." It is very timely for me. Thanks for sharing it. By the time this thread is over, I should have tons of D200's and be on my way to traveling around the...

    Battery Removal

    Since I am a novice and hang on every word you photo pundits say, I have concluded that now that I have my first D200, I need about five more D200's and then I'll never have a dust problem. Thanks everyone.:biggrin:

    Battery Removal

    Thanks, Baywing, Raul, and Herman. I asked him if he was sure they said to take the batteries out, and not just to turn off the camera, but he insisted they said to actually take the batteries out. It seemed strange to me but I wanted to check with you all just to make sure. So, thank you again.

    Battery Removal

    A friend of mine just took a workshop at our local Ritz Camera Shop and they told him to always remove the battery from his camera before he switches lenses as the battery attracks dust particles. Is there any validity to this?

    Do Americans Travel

    I love to travel. My husband and I went all over Eastern and Western Europe, Russia, Japan twice, China, Singapore, Hong Kong, besides most of the U.S. We did six bicycle trips through different parts of France, and have hiked all over Switzerland and the U.S. He died three years ago and the...

    Epson P-2000 & D200 NEF

    You can get all the shooting info from the RAW files on the Epson but I didn't find the histogram. I just got it so it might be there. I'm not sure. But the shooting info is accessible.

    Sunset at Dog Beach (7 pics)

    You did us Nancy's proud. Wonderful shots. I especially loved the looks on the dogs faces in different pictures. They really did look like they were posing for you. You caught them at just the right moment.

    Epson P-2000 & D200 NEF

    I have the Epson 4000 and I love it. I shoot only in RAW with the D200 and it opens the file up as thumbnails and then I can click on one and it becomes a full screen view. I can then go from one full screen view to the next picture, etc. It doesn't zoom in on the picture once it is full...

    FLORIDIANS & TEXANS Drive ME nutz !!!!!!

    Hi Keith, I loved your pictures. It reminded me of why, when we moved to Florida from Denver, we named the boat we bought "Snow No More." I remember waking up in the morning and having to go outside and scrape off the windshield so we could drive the car. Yuck!

    Anyone got word on the 105mmVR?

    I was at the Nikon School in Fort Lauderdale today and asked them about the 105VR lens. They said they were scheduled to be shipped from Nikon at the end of this week. Yippee!

    D200 Color Balance Question

    Thanks, again, everyone. I am shooting in RAW and am going to get the Epson 2400 as I want to print my own pictures. From what I am reading, I think it makes sense for me to shoot in Adobe RBG and then change it in Photoshop if I send it to be processed on line or to a commercial printer...

    D200 Color Balance Question

    Thanks Baywing and Carlton. I think I'll start off with with Adobe RBG since I don't do many portraits. Jim, I loved that article. What is that site? Thanks for sharing it.

    D200 Color Balance Question

    Do I set it at sRGB or Adobe RBG? It came set at sRGB. I am guessing it should be set at Adobe RBG because in the little book that comes with it (Yes, I am one of those who reads the book cover to cover) it says to put it at Adobe RBG if you plan to do much processing of them. Which setting...

    Annoying aquaintance

    I guess one of the things you might want to think about is if it is worth risking your friendship with his brother to loan this guy your equipment. In other words, if he ruins something and doesn't make good on it, would that affect how you feel about your friend, his brother? If the answer is...

    Hi Rodney, Because I know have Sally, I so understand that you are getting your second D200 soon. The camera repair job called today to ask me some questions about my D70s that I sent to be cleaned and I was so tempted to just tell them to keep it and I'll get another D200. Good for you for...

    Sally and I want to thank all of you for your encouragement and support. Honestly, I am so excited, I can barely sit still. One of the things I have discovered that is sooooooo awesome is the self-timer button. I use it when I do macro photography and with my D70s, I had to reset it each time...

    My beautiful D200 arrived this morning at a little after ten. I can't believe I really have one. It is sooooooo gorgeous. I named her Sally. She already feels like an old friend. I can see she is going to force me to become a better photographer because she has buttons on it that the...

    Annoying aquaintance

    "I'd love to help you out but that's just not going to work for me" is my standard way of saying no when I don't want to do something. I have found that if I start trying to explain why I don't want to do something, it just opens the topic up for debate.

    Not A Good Day

    Jim, I think your willingness to talk about your feelings puts you way ahead of the game. You sound like a strong intelligent man and I am sure better things are waiting for you. Two weeks ago, NPR (national public radio) did an hour program on people who had lost their jobs and every one of...

    Thanks again to everyone. It is coming Monday because I won't be home tomorrow; I'd already promised my granddaughter I would take her to her first ballet lesson. I'm hoping she sticks with ballet long enough for me to get pictures of her with my new camera. Meanwhile I am so excited. I've...

    Connie, and Herman, Thanks to both of you and, of course, in the rational world, everything you say makes perfect sense. If only I were rational. OK. I will be. I'll start with the D200 for all the reasons you have said plus the cost factor. If I were perfectly honest .... oh what...

    Where Can I Buy A D200 Right Now?

    Hi Nadia, Thanks for the tip but I don't think I'd feel comfortable buying my camera from Ebay. I want a store behind it in case something goes wrong, or, in case, I have questions. I am too new to this hobby to wing it in on my own. All that being said, I still so appreciate your...

    Hi charlie, Yes, you are making perfect sense and you have made me want to learn more about the inner workings of my camera. Later today when I have more time, I'll search the net and see if I can find a place that describes in more detail, with pictures, how the camera works. Thanks...

    Viewfinder Puzzlement

    You are all geniuses (genui?). I just took the lens off of my camera and very nervously use a little blower brush to clean the mirror and some other part of the insides that is at right angle to the mirror (because I thought that was the mirror at first). At first, the little fern disappeared...

    Where Can I Buy A D200 Right Now?

    Thanks, Dave. I just went to their website and they are showing that they have them in stock. I tried to call but I guess they are closed. I am going to call again first thing in the morning. That will also give me a bit of a cooling off period.

    80-400vr On Tripod

    Thank all of you for helping me to understand the VR system. Now I think I get it. The VR searches for motion and may get fooled if it doesn't find any (when used on a tripod). That makes sense - sort of. I am going to try it on and off a tripod and see if I can tell the difference. I think...
