So what does a new D300 user do when he gets the camera from UPS? I will tell you what I did. I took a battery from my D200, Grabbed my 85 1.8 nikkor, kicked the ISO to 1600 and took a picture. I did set up some menu items, color space, the tip Scott Kelby http://www.scottkelby.com/blog/, issued today about the memory card setting, time, playback etc... The arrival of it has taken the sting out of of my computer being DOA. At least Julia is getting to use her blackberry more since I have seized control of her laptop.
