Thumbs up

The "D" shaped black button at 3 o'clock to the right of the front of the lens mount face... congrats on the most excellent purchase.

I guess the Nikon D50 is ‘the’ camera of choice then? Thought I would check prices online, just out of interest really and they are not cheap… however I then started looking at the prices of lenses :eek: good god I didn’t think they would be more than the camera but I spotted one for £1,699 ouch!

*note to self, never ever crash car into someone camera/lens*

Thats the proper paparazzi lens is that, super flexible wide angle to mega zoom. Want it!


This photo was taken at a very yellowy / poorly lit indoor track




You just have to get the white-balance right on the camera. I took a photo of the basketball backboard and used that as a white balance reference photo.

Course I will, generally thats all these cameras need is a bit of dialing in, and knowing what settings to use in what situation - particularly for the colours.
