Hi fellow forumers,
I just bought a D700 over the weekend and am very eager to learn. Would any kind soul be willing to teach me all about the camera? I would like it to be in the form of a walk around and shoot teaching various exposures settings, subjects, lighting and preferably early morning and night included. All 3 meals and drinks on me (reasonably...). Btw, I'm using 35mm f/2 lens.

Please contact me soon. Thank you.

agree ... i gain alot reading up and hands on myself.
if you end up going back to the same spot 2-3 times ... you will find yourself getting better shots each time.

youtube has also alot of good info

Hello,
I bought my D700 from Cathay Photo for 2855 w/o gst cash. Get a e-quote from them and bring the email.

I am convinced that it's the best camera in terms of value and performance after mulling about it for a long time.

Nice price... are you saying that GST is waived?

congrats on your purchase :)
It sounds like you're very new to photography.
You could join some of the outings but if it's an informal setting you may not learn as much as you want to due to the lack of personal attention.
Joining some courses is probably a good idea. It would cost more than what you're offering, that's all ;)
3 meals and drinks isn't really a lot, when you consider the time involved.

The most I can offer you is to tag along with me when I go shoot sunrise/sunset. Will go on Saturday morning, weather permitting.

You only have 35 f/2 lens?

Read properly. $2850 is exclusive of GST. TK's price is GST inclusive.

They throw in an 8GB card / Kata 123-GO-10 NS backpack and a card wallet with the D700. I thought thee Kata bag was a good deal except for that Nikon logo on it and the fact that you haven't got much space left for anything else once you have the D700 in it.
