Hope you are just new to DSLR and not photography.

Reset your SB800 to it's factory default setting.
Camera to ISO 100-200; indoor/evening -- ISO400.
P = Programmed mode.

Needless to say, spare batteries and CF cards.

I can't believe you expect to be able to pick up a DLSR and learn to use it in one day, particularly shooting indoors with flash. Although the camera itself might impress your Chinese visitors, I imagine the end results might not.

Today you bought a camera and a flash, want someone to teach you what setting to use online, and by tomorrow you expect to crunch out professional quality photos.




Am I missing something here??

no I'm not new to photography has been using my sony K701i for about a year now.

look like I need to charge the battery for the camera. heck the shop never tell me that the SB800 requires battery to operate. I will go to pick up the battery to set it to factory default.

hope by the time I come back I will have more top notch tips from the pro.

I hope you bought a lens too... :rolleyes:

I hope that you know the basics of photo taking... if not... to take nice professional photos... :sweat:

If you have the basics of photo taking, trying reading the manual from now till your guest arrival, you probably can make it.

good one of the saleman on the way back will pick up the battery.

Lens - oh dear, I thought I had guessed it right that the camera is lacking something in front.

solar power for SB800 - how to activate it.

yes am reading the manual.

actually I learn thing very fast also if you give me some tips.

i tell you what, your company give me the D200 and SB800
I go and shoot for you.

I can use my own batteries for the SB800 and my own lens as well.
But the D200 cannot take video you know?
