> Thanks Paul. I am still trying to digest all the menu options. Fortunately, I have been an N80 and F100 shooter for a long time, so I have an advantage in that I already know the Nikon terminology. I have shot quite a few frames so far, just out of the box with the camera set to S and A, of course (no auto). I just need to keep reading up on how to customize the WB and change the ISO, and I know they're in the book somewhere.
Again, thanks for the reply. This is a great camera
