    I've not had any problems so far. However I have been using the Apple "bumpers" protection since I activated the phone.

    LR3 Upgrade or NX2

    You have some experience with Lightroom that does not transfer easily to NX2. Lightroom is more flexible and more up to date with what most photographers need. Regards,

    Need a reason to get an iPhone?

    Philippe, In addition to triggering the shutter, you can adjust the White Balance, aperture, shutter and exposure and a few other things that I haven't had a chance to play with. Great for portraits, especially self portraits. Regards,

    I captured this image last Saturday and was very excited to have finally gotten a "Cardinal Shot". It was taken through a patio door at a range of 10-12 feet with a Sigma 50-500 at f/11, 1/80 sec. I did a 100 crop, some white balance and smart sharpening in Photoshop. I wondered if there was...

    Did anyone buy a D300 from Costco or Dell?

    If you are a member of NAPP ($99 a year) B & H offers free 3-day UPS shipping. Also, they do NOT charge NJ sales tax, even if you don't belong to NAPP. The NAPP membership is one of the best values available, just for their Photoshop tutorials and discounts.
