  1. Hey guys … another outstanding show. Watch the language, eh … there’s kiddies listening … 😉

    How’s everyone going with “Pick That Shutter”???? Where can I get one of those Hitachi DS18EVB cameras?? They sound cool ….

  2. I think we have broken new ground with our offensive efforts this week.
    I think Cam has broken the pack wide open…
    Thanks for the interest and I reckon that Hitachi would have some frame rate as it has one helluva battery.

  3. Didn’t mind the language! Laughed a looong time with the SB800 story… I *knew* i did not know what I was doing with mine so I read the manual and have had nothing but great performance… Shows – sometime you know too much!

    More seriously – if you guys have Nikon reps that are still talking to you… Is it likely that firmware feature requests would be ever taken seriously? It would be great if the D3 was tweaked in few areas…
    1 – adjustable delay (not just 1 sec) shutter release
    2 – trigger a bracket within MLU with single release after mirror lift at a max frame rate (or even better chosen) frame rate…
    3 – optionally trigger a bracket with shitter delay release

    Seeing your reputions must be riding high in Nikon land, surely these things will be a doddle!!!

    keep up the good work..
