    Saying good-bye to my trusty D300

    I have a D4 now and my D300 isn't going anywhere out of my hands. I actually just paired it back up with the 18-200 (gen 1!) that I bought with it since my 24-70 is now permanently mounted to the D4 =) The 18-200 is a badass little walkabout lens and the D300 has a ton of life left in it.

    Memory card for D4

    The included reader sent files to my current top of the line MB Air and 2008 era Mac Pro faster than any CF card ever has. Could it be faster with TB or USB3? Perhaps. But it's not worth missing in the meantime.

    Just want to be clear on this: If I set my High Speed Shooting FPS to 11 it will not meter and focus past image 1, but if I set it to 10 or lower it will continuously adjust for each shot, there is nothing more I need to set other than max speed, correct?

    I've discovered why the XQD cards are expensive: Because they are worth it.

    My initial impressions with the D4

    Are you local to HK or looking to beat US prices? I just bought a 16 on Amazon for 128 shipped Prime.... Know why the XQD cards are expensive? Because they are worth it!

    My initial impressions with the D4

    My understanding is that only swaps between AF-s and AF-c, does he ogre wheel swap between 1, 9 and 51 point AF?

    My initial impressions with the D4

    I'm moving from D300 to a d4, big leap but I think I have all my settings locked in, perhaps even better than what the D300 allowed me as far as reversing dials goes. Two things struck me tho: - On my D300 whenever VR engaged it was very obvious that the frame would suddenly snap steady, which...

    With the release of the D800, D3x prices are dropping so much...

    I'll gladly pay double, or $5 apiece, for any unwanted D3x'es!

    Wedding Photography and the D4 and D800(e)

    That's an awful lot f pixels to wrangle. I'd do d4 for volume and d800 where the extra detail most needed it, but I'm just an am.

    D4 arrived

    Sound like all preorders are getting the card and reader. If you are an amazon customer watch your gold box, d4s have been showing up there very very rarely for some. Took a few emails but I got Amazon to credit the difference for me, which is flipping awesome,

    Pre-ordered mine. First FX for me since my n8008s. =) (And the F3-HP before that!)

    Hi again everyone, wasn't planning on it but now looks like I might try to bring my folks over for a quick look tomorrow. Sad to hear that numbers are low, I'd still like to clobber that guy from last year, even if he wasn't 100% the reason for the drop off. Good luck out there, enjoying the...

    Short D7000 video of a Goldfinch

    Agreeing with Edge, seems beautifully shot but like a lot of the D7000 videos I've seen it seems a bit 'stroby'. Wonder what kind of aperture you'd get if you lock it at 1/60th or so instead of locking aperture at f11...

    I walked in there one night to try to get a bite to eat and walked right out. $22 for their lame (compared to AC and Vegas) buffet and the sandwich shop right next to it was just as over priced. I didn't put a dime into a single machine either. If you are a slot buff you might like it but...

    I've been BRACed to APG Maryland, looking forward to getting over to Conowingo to shoot the eagles now that I can no longer see my beloved Ft. Monmouth Ospreys every day =( Is there a good 'noobies guide' for folks like me who have never been there but who want to see the eagles?

    OT: PhotoPlus Expo 10/22-10/24 NYC...who's going?

    Not really. On days where the Jewish guys are working you can take a bus to B&H and I think Calumet but not sure on that. Definitely not on Friday tho. I think MWPE might sell some stuff tho. The makers don't sell anything tho. You can get GREAT magazine deals tho...

    Yeah, I took em at their word cause I knew I was one of the first folks to get it and wanted to have some fun doing the first unboxing to hit the net. My pictures just hit the front page of Engadget and I'm going to have over 100k flickr views today so it paid off! Lots of folks are checking...
