I am two days into being the proud owner of a Nikon D700 and I’m fast head over heels already.
It feels so great in my hands and I just can’t believe that it’s really mine.
I’m becoming more familiar with the controls, and still find myself searching for the playback button [in an opposite spot as my Sony], but I’m learning.
I discovered the concept of back-button focus this week and have been giving that a test run. It’s always different trying to get used to a new technique. I guess it’s the perfect time to try something new though, as I’m already stretching my brain to learn this camera.
I plan on doing a post about back-button focus once I master it, but if you want to look it up, here’s a link. That’s the Canon explanation, and I just used google to find the Nikon equivalent.
The days have been rainy here so I still haven’t had the chance to step outside and test the camera on nature, with natural light. Today though, there’s a St. Patrick’s Day parade in the plans, so [fingers crossed – no rain!] I should be able to get some pictures there.
Enjoy the ride,
I’m looking forward to seeing some of your pictures Laura.
