    HI there Guy.
    I'm so much happier about it now - mind you, I haven't been shy about the colours here But my nasty yellow has gone.

    Do you know, I'm such a sad bastard that I've been known to take a photo of a patch of grass, print it, and then go and lay it back on the original patch

    I'd love to, but it's time that's really the problem at the moment - unfortunately I have a living to make!

    One day,one day - I'd love to come, even if it's so that I don't muddle up my Roberts!

    I keep leaning the D3 way instead of the D300. Just a matter of funds after the MF gear

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Hi Jono,
    These are cool. Love the light on the tractor. I also couldn't see them last night until late but by then my iPhone battery was completely shot.

    Yes, I am taking the D300 off of AWB. Hard part for me is putting together a good mental checklist for each of my cameras so, I remember to get the settings right when I start shooting.

    I look forward to meeting you one day as well. I can see you now at a workshop, everyone heads off walking left and Jono walks off to the right nobody has any idea what he is looking at and he comes back in with the most astonishing pictures that we didn't see.

    Motto?
    There's no such thing as a bum note - it all depends on how you resolve it.

    (I think it comes from Thelonius Monk)

    Steen - that picture 'for life' is wonderful - really great . . . . did I say I liked it?

    I know exactly what you mean, Terry.
    Right now my solution is to put those settings I need to remember to check, into "My Menu" which is a small collection of important menu points we can make ourselves out of the countless menu choises.
    In the left column of the menus just enter the last menu segment on the bottom of the screen: MY MENU.
    Then choose: "Add item" and then just choose a menu item after your own taste and push (OK).

    So far I have put these three important choices into My Menu:
    "White Balance" (no more Auto thanks to Jono & Robsteve)
    "ISO sensitivity auto control"
    "Non-CPU lens data" (if you use any manual focus lenses)

    Of course you might already know all this, but hopefully it's a useful hint for some of those who, like myself, haven't yet read the entire manual, huge as a family saga as it is .-)

    Here comes the postcard version of the above picture.
    Actually Mr. and Mrs. Bird live in a cabin by the sea and they can just walk out of the door and forage for nice worms along the beach whenever they want. They are very happy.
    Good night everybody and sleep well

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Hi Steen,
    Setting up my own menu is next on my list of things to do on the D300. I was trying to decide what I wanted to avoid clutter. ISO is definitely one. That is the item I go to the menu most to change, either taking it out of auto or changing the shutter speed limits. I've resisted the MF lenses and save that pleasure for the M8.

    Very sweet Jorgen
    Interesting lens that - so convenient - I had it on the Kodak 14n, trouble was it blew copious amounts of dust straight back on to the sensor!

    It's supposed to work better on full frame than on aps. My experience with it is that it's stellar, even wide open, up to around 50mm, usable up to 90, and really ugly above that. For that reason, I've consider changing it for a Nikkor 24-85mm f/2.8-4.0. One of the f/2.8 Tamrons would be nice, but the 17-50 isn't always long enough for portraits, and the 28-75 not wide enough for groups or interiors.

    HI Jorgen
    You'r right about full frame - the Nikon 24-120 AFS VR, that much despised lens, is actually not bad full frame either.

    Have you thought about the new nikon 18-65? or is it too slow for you?

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Here is a bit of action:
    M8 Continuous everything, shutter 1/640 ISO 6400 (yes)
    no noise reduction (probably should be, but it was just a bit of fun)- there are a number of missing shots, these are:
    1,6,8 and 11 of the sequence (others were fine, just not so interesting!).

    I suppose you must have meant "D3". Otherwise your skills with the M8 are formidable!

    It must be that first glass of wine!
    If it were the M8, then the camera would be a formidable version as well (ISO 6400!!)
    Unfortunately it's too late to edit - maybe that nice Guy will do it for me!

    The 18-65 seems to be a very nice lens, although slow and somewhat costly. Together with a 70-300 and the new Tokina 11-16, it would make a very nice, lightweight kit. I could always carry a prime or two for the occasions when I need a shallow DOF.

    17 May is the national day of Norway, the day when all Norwegians around the globe celebrate the constitution of 1814. It's a grand celebration, starting early in the morning and lasting until late, late... The main attraction is the focus on children and the children's parade. Here are a couple of snapshots from yesterday's celebration in Bangkok.

    Both with S3 and the 80-200 AF-S.

    Thanks, both of you.

    There are not many Norwegians living here in the Bangkok area, but there are at least a thousand Norwegians living in Pattaya, and a similar number, if not more, in the south of Thailand. Nobody knows for sure though, since there are no official statistics.

    Here's a snapshot, taken while I was leaving a party, of a friend of mine and his children. S3 with Nikkor 85mm f/1.8 @ f/2.8 and ISO1600. Onboard flash. Was in a hurry, no time to change settings, just turned around as I left, saying "Look! Now!". So they did

    DD - what great shots and a testimony for thinking out of the box, and using a wide lens, even a fish for macro stuff... gives a whole other view of these beautiful flowers, loved them....also great perspective, angle, one that is not seen too often...

    I agree - great shots - I like using wide angle lenses for flowers (never tried a fisheye though!).

    Nearly finished!

    Hi there
    This is Emma's old 900 turbo S - it was one of the last two delivered in 1994, it's just had a complete rebuild, and it's looking GOOD! We can collect it next week. (just searching for the right wheels)
