I've just introduced myself in the new members section, and I want to share with you some shots from my last trip to Marrakech last April. It's a wonderful place to go to enjoy our hobby. Let me take you to a quick walkabout. This is my first serious travel with the D80. If you visit my gallery or read my posts in other forums you can see that most of the shots published are taken with the great Lumix FZ series, but know I'm completely surrended to the magic of the great combo that is the D80 and the ultra-versatile 18-200 VR. I carry all my stuff in a Lowepro Slingshot AW100, the D80 with the 18-200 VR attached, the 50 1.8, flash SB-600, replacement batery EN-EL3e and 4 x AA batteries for the flash. With a few gadgets more the total weight is close to four pounds, a limit that I've imposed to myself because I've suffered a lot from the back in the past and I don't want to ruin a trip. After 3 days there, 630 shots and 519 photos stored in 2 x 4GB 150x Transcend SD cards and backed up one card in my 80 GB HD installed in the great Digimate III. Quite secure solution, but let's go to the shots. I mostly use Aperture Mode, Auto ISO limited to 1600 and shutter speed limited to 1/15 sec, I've come up with this combination and found that it really works very well for me with the help of the VR. People from Marrakech doesn't like to be photographed and I like alot portraits, so I have had a problem. I've tried to come across with a little of imagination, letting my arm straight down to my knee, the camera firmly held and trying to figure what's in the viewfinder. The streets of the "Zoco", the little shops and artcratfs in the old town are really narrow, but I've come out with some some nice shots: NIKON D80    ---    18mm    f/3.5    1/15s    ISO 1250 NIKON D80    ---    18mm    f/3.5    1/10s    ISO 1600 NIKON D80    ---    18mm    f/3.5    1/15s    ISO 360 NIKON D80    ---    18mm    f/3.5    1/15s    ISO 1250 NIKON D80    ---    46mm    f/4.8    1/30s    ISO 100 NIKON D80    ---    27mm    f/4.0    1/20s    ISO 100 NIKON D80    ---    28mm    f/5.0    1/15s    ISO 720 NIKON D80    ---    18mm    f/3.5    1/500s    ISO 100 NIKON D80    ---    22mm    f/8.0    1/200s    ISO 100 NIKON D80    ---    18mm    f/8.0    1/250s    ISO 100 NIKON D80    ---    105mm    f/8.0    1/160s    ISO 100 NIKON D80    ---    18mm    f/8.0    1/100s    ISO 100 NIKON D80    ---    18mm    f/8.0    1/200s    ISO 100 NIKON D80    ---    18mm    f/8.0    1/160s    ISO 100 NIKON D80    ---    18mm    f/4.0    1/15s    ISO 450 NIKON D80    ---    18mm    f/4.0    1/30s    ISO 100 NIKON D80    ---    18mm    f/4.0    1/15s    ISO 1250 Hope you've liked the small tour, if you want to see more, you can visit my gallery where I've uploaded a bunch more.
