Re: Happy Christmas,birthday & New year to me D300 has arrived!!!

First thing is launch the manual out the window and buy Simon Staffords book on the D300 from Grays of westminster about 18 i think. Best book i ever bought and is far more use than the manual.
My grip aint never been off the D300, makes it heavy thou.

Hi Muscle, thanks for info, I have just looked at your gallery, are your shots from a D300, if so, I hope I can get somewhere as near to them as I possibly can

Camera has arrived
Battery grip has arrived
Awaiting my 50mm F1.8 D AF lens and spare battery, hopefully tomorrow? I have left 2 lenses in Goa with my D40,wish I would have brought them home now
I have been reading my manual and a year seems to have has passed me by, someone told me we are now in 2009, I'm sure it was 2008 when I started
A Happy and Healthy New Year to all, thanks for all the advise so far and I hope to learn a lot more through the site this year, cheers

What a super present! It should not take long to learn the controls, when I first had mine I just set it on Aperture Priority and went out and started taking pictures I still do not use everything thats on the camera,I have a 18-70 nikkor on mine it will cover most subjects, I intend to put some pictures on this site when I find my way around.I'm a newbie on here. Enjoy your new Camera.
