    When you say you want higher shutter speed. Do you mean you want a faster shutter speed? or a longer shutter speed?

    i need a faster shutter speed but seems like my shutter speed is always stuck at either the x-sync speed (x250 or x320) or slower shutter speed (20", bulb). and i just figure out whats going on... really a noobie mistake.. i didn't realised the x-sync is at the end of the slower range..

    thanks for those who tried to answer my question

    Hi guys..

    I got myself the D300s not too long ago..I moved from my beloved D60..my question pertains to autofocus

    menu>custom setting menu> a. Autofocus>a3 Dynamic AF Area

    What I dont understand here is when does 3D tracking apply? Only when I have chosen the ( white regtange) or does it apply when I shoot in other modes.

    I tend to shoot street portraits where people are walking towards me so the focus point is changing constantly and i generally keep my AF selector to either dynamic area or single focus ( the 2nd and 3rd options on the D300s). I turned on 3d tracking and some how i saw the red dot on the screen jumping around..so I am a little lost..if some one could shed some light on this I would be greatful..

    Many Thanks in Advance

    Cheers
    A

    Nope. The FM2 eyepiece is just a flat piece of glass. All it does it to reduce dust entering the viewfinder. I got the setup just to have a proper covering over my eye, so I can see more clearly with less distractions from light outside my eye and VF.

    If you want magnification, you can try the Nikon DK-21M

    Or you can try a China made eyepiece magnifier (I had one on my D90, and magnification is variable via turning the eyepiece). Look under user "Dimage" under his mass sales thread.

    Yup. But it still fogged up one time, but that was some major condesation, as I was sweating profusely...
