  7. Hi just a few quick things I would like to say, thank you for all your kind comments, the D2x is such an interesting camera the combination of settings that can be applied to the camera is just mind-boggling, one feature I really do like is the resolution of the CCD the other is when it is attached to your computer via nikon capture control you are able to adjust almost anything.

    My favourite has to be that you can adjust the exposure compensation individually for each metering mode in 1/6th of a stop increments separately to the normal exposure compensation you could have your matrix metering +2/6th as standard and then your spot metering –1/6th if you wish. As a matter of interest in the first image, great tit is straight from the camera and very heavily cropped it is about 1/4 of the actual frame I enlarged this to A3 and printed it the detail was just amazing.


    Phillip.
