    Good idea to convert it to B&W and i admire your dedication to take photos under extreme conditions. Putting the sun off centre is a good compositional choice for me and of course, i love the intense sky, looks like the clouds were being sucked into the sun in a whirlwind. I think i also captured some images like that today, except i was luckier coz it didn't rain, just very windy.

    Make sure you dry your camera and lenses well before putting it into the drycabinet.

    My original one is still fine.
    Because of the pincer when you tried to place it? So I gather now you're officially on split focus screen?

My tripod also seemed rather flimsy for the job i thought, should have brought the manfrotto instead of the Benro, but i just stabilised the legs and hooked my cam bag to it to further stabilise the whole setup. I was on uneven ground somemore! Luckily it all held up very well, though i was never far from my gear in case it toppled.

    How it ACTUALLY works.... time to google once again...

    You can change it yourself if you know where to get replacement part and the proper tool to release the screen. I think DD123 can show you a website (how they change the screens to split focus type)...
    It is a piece of "frosted" glass. The original one has no markings on it. Just blank. This one I ordered is actually a real original Nikon focusing screen meant for FM3 camera. They just cut it down to size to fit whichever camera you order it for. It is called the K3 screen.

    There are no electrical contacts on it. The focus points are not on the screen itself but another piece of glass. So all your focus points and grid lines still work as per normal.

    Yes the tweezers. I did not notice I was grabbing it deeper than just the 'handle'. But ok la. you should see old film cameras, all dusty dirty as hell, but people still use it as per normal. I think we are just paranoid la.

    I am. In my old camera D40x, I installed a made-in-china no brand screen. Much darker, and the focus is not really spot on. This one is spot on.

    This one is an original Nikon one. Just that it is meant for the FM3, and the company cut it down to size to fit the D300s.

    Yes, I am officially on the split focusing screen now. I can focus my MF lenses hella fast now... like the old days with Film camera.

    Well, better than us...D90 users who can't even fully use the 50 /1.2 primes...

    Well 20 or 24 should be good. Covers what you don't already have... both manual?
