the battery. Yesterday I bought a 8 gig SD card and card reader...! haha! The bloody camera has more menus than a Jet! hahaha! Luckily I downloaded the English manual, as mine is all in Japanese. The camera and lens came in KIT box, so for the domestic market?! First impression as the battery is charging? The supplied lens hood looks nice but loosely fitted! ugh! Will get a 72 UV filter and use the lens cap for now...

............. >>> as a lens cap is a great idea. That was the 1st thing I bought when I had my 35mm film cameras. Unfortunately with the current digital camera attaching a UV filter is not possible since the lens retracts inside the camera body
I realy hate those lens caps the cameras come with... and they always hang when you take them off to take pictures...

I don`t make things. I make things better !

... check out Ken's site for some good stuff on your camera. I've used it for tips on my F100 and it helped.

.... firmware for it and likes how he works his command stuff. I've followed some of his recomendations on the pre-sets for my F100 and they WORK well ! I've found some after market foldable RUBBER hoods work well screwed on to the filter as well. I'm sure you've thought of that though It's been 3 days now, PICTURES please

Just read his firmware and how to install it....never done it before so a bit hesitant, lest I screw it up haha! But his comment on no prob with flare without the hood I liked. and as he said, in the old days we all like metal hoods etc...but now he just uses his cupped hand to shade the lens if shooting in direct sun hahaha! done that too! NOT 3 days, Michael, just got it last nite!!!! took 4 shots ...one to check the flash and 3 outside in the eve....ISO 100...and got blurry shots of course...haha! me bad! I have not learned how to quickly reset the ISO yet! hehehehe!

top deck ASA dial...but the D7000 's left knobs select the shooting mode and the under locking dial chooses single or continues mode etc..

I think i have to press the back left ISO button then use the command wheel haha! but i am trying to be methodical in learning the main menu items...)
