      Thanks FL00DY. I have an 8GB on order from HK via eBay. I've bought a few CF cards from them before. I think I only saved about $20 on your price though, haha.

      Thanks for the link though, I'll pick one up at lunch as I imagine they will be cheaper than the Officeworks next door. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Could have bought the same card as above from Harris Tech for the same price.

      I have the 45mb/s Extreme IV CF cards for my 350D, I wonder why they don't make those in SD?

      SD's haven't been used as long as CF's for camera work. They're still the preferred memory, but the physical size of SDHC is a plus.

      Any spare SD cards I have I can chuck a few MP3 tracks onto it and use it in the S3.

      First pic was a quick point and shoot, but the 100% crop is kinda fun.

      Ha. First photo with all the cameras I've ever owned was of one of my pets. Glad I'm not the only one that can't think of anything more interesting to shoot..
      Also, picked up a new ballhead on the weekend to replace the crap Gitzo BH that came with the legs. Acratech GV2. Like replacing a 1960 VW Beetle with a 997 Turbo. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Didn't bring my tripod with me, so pics of it on the legs will be a week away. Otherwise, it looks pretty much like it does on their website.

      SLR Guru's I have a problem w/ my D90. There are occasions when I attempt to take a shot, it goes in focus makes the beep but does not release the shutter. It happens w/ the crappy 18-105 kit lens (plastic mount) and the shiny F1.8 50mm prime lens w/ metal mount. It happens more often w/ the kit lens. By the time I have a look (turn it upside down and just look at it) turn it back to the subject and it takes the bleeding photo. (It happens less w/ the 50mm than w/ the kit)
      Now that Giselle is making with the cute moments - missing them sucks. Please guru's of the tex help me!

      sounds like a repair shop problem.
      Have you tried removing all the batteries and resetting it?
      Different memory card?
      Get a Canon

      maybe the light is not good enough? Sometimes the camera will still be able to lock on for auto focus, but the light may be variable and it can't work out the rest if you have the camera on full auto?
      I think I use AV mode nearly all the time and the camera can struggle sometimes in low light.
      does the d90 have a built in pop up flash? if so does it ever do it with the flash on?
      or maybe it is just tech related? a good shop would know.

    14. 06-14-2009 03:17 AM #239
      It has inbuilt flash - that fires as you'd expect.
      I may try the flash card option, perhaps it's a dodgy one - had not thought of that.
      Otherwise - i'll be cleaning the contacts w/ metho as soon as I get some.

      Never had such a problem with my D90. I use the 16-85, 70-300 VR and f1.4G 50 tho along with the Sigma 150mm macro.

      Dylan, why did you go from Canon to Nikon, and are you glad you did?

      Mainly for the handling. I just never felt 100% comfortable with the Canon ergonomics. Things felt more intuitive to me with Nikon after using a few different models over a period of time. The other thing was that the control layout changes in the Canon system between models, where to do one thing on a 450D means doing something totally different with different controls with new jog wheels ect on a 40D, 5D etc. Nikon is much more "standardised" for want of a better term, so I'm not adjusting as much if I move up in models. Another positive for me was AF. The D90 uses the D200 AF, which I've found works very well with fast moving subjects, and I feel I get a much higher hit rate with fast moving subjects than I ever did with Canon.
      Other little things like SWM on most lenses (where you usually need Canon L lenses to get full time manual focus) plus lens cases and hoods standard with all lenses are also nice to haves.
      Why the D90? D300 image quality in a lighter, smaller body. Happy with the switch. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Not strictly a SLR, but this little camera looks like it will be popular.

      Micro 4/3, so it's half frame 12 mp. Being officially announced today in Japan.

    20. 06-16-2009 01:45 AM #245
      Mallie I don't have a D90 but what focus mode are you using? It should be showing in the top LCD, it sounds like maybe you are in AF-S mode I'd recommend using the AF-A mode.

      Liam, thanks for doing all my research and pricing for me...just got a D500 from Ryda too

      Can't wait to give one of those Olympus E-P1's a test drive.
      One of those with the 17mm 2.8 could be my P&S replacement.

      Nice one.

    24. 06-18-2009 04:46 AM #249
      Just picked up a F2.8L 70-200 IS USM for the 5D Mk2 - might get some better motorsport pics now!

    25. 06-18-2009 06:38 PM #250
      nice one [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] I have the 200 2.8L prime. Not something I can use lots, but it's very sharp.
      I was looking at getting the 70-200 2.8 this time last year, time flies. Think I might go the 70-200 4L as it's a bit lighter and smaller. That way i could kick in a bit more for the 135 prime as well.
      Have you been using the camera much yet? any dust issues with the mk2?
