    D200 Question

    Okay, I just got a D200 as my backup to my D300 but I can't figure something out. I want to turn highlight warning on when the image is displayed at full view, not when the histogram is taking up half the screen. Anyone? Thanks!

    Need lens suggestion...

    Currently I have a 70-200 f2.8 VR and a 50 f1.8. I am looking to add a lens to my arsenal! I am trying to decide what to do. I currently have found that I will make more money with portrait photography as I have no idea of where to start for wildlife. I aspire to be a wildlife photographer...

    At the park today...

    1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. This was all taken by new new D300. I am finding that some of the images aren't turning out as clear as my Canon 40D (when I had it) but they are still okay on most. The ones that do turn out good...really turn out good. I think I am just having trouble with...

    D300 w/70-200 f2.8 VR slow focus?

    Okay so I have the above and I was out shooting today. I was trying to shoot some birds that were flying in. They were single birds at about 60' coming in to about 15', then shooting off. I was almost unable to capture ANY usable images as the focusing on the camera just would not lock on. I...

    Do these lenses compare?

    Okay, I was a Canon guy until last week. I had a 40D with kit lens 28-135 and a 70-200 f4L IS. I had planned to trade the 70-200 in on something larger as 200 wasn't quite long enough. Now that I am a Nikon user I need help. Since I am familiar with L series glass I need help in comparing...

    Does D300 have wireless for SB-800 flash?

    I have a Nikon D300. I purchased a SB-800 flash. I heard that you can use the SB-800 flash remotely through the camera. Can the D300 do this? If so, how? Thanks.

    Need help selecting a lens.

    Okay, I bought a Nikon D300 with a 18-200 VR lens. This lens is fine for most of what I do but I want to get a LONG zoom lens but the problem is that I have about $1500 or less to spend AND it needs to be sharp. This lens will only be used outdoors for shooting wildlife, with the occasional...

    New Camera!!!

    I bought a Canon 40D w/28-135 about 60 days ago and to be honest, it was a great camera but when I seen the D300, I knew I had to have it. I tried to sell my Canon 40D but was getting real low offers. While at Ritz Camera tonight I mentioned that I wanted the D300 and wish I would have waited...
