D300 (not an owner yet)
Let's say that I set speed to 1/1000 sec. (S mode)
Suppose that the aperture is out of range.
Does the D300 an auto ISO to accomodate the exposure?
Thank you,
Daniel

I can't say for certain, but both my D50 and my D90 can do that (you can turn Auto Iso on or off), so I assume it will.

Okay, thank you.
It should be. Interesting tool, we have not to pay attention at under or over-exposition when changing light conditions like tree shadows in a sunny day.
Sometimes I get in trouble with my Fuji S3 because of this. It lacks this feature.

I just tried this on my D300. It works exactly as you suggested. Similarly, austo ISO works as you would expect in aperture priority mode. Auto ISO also works in manual mode but you do have to pay attention if the light level varies dramatically. Hope this helps.

Now I have my new D300. It is fantastic. Many very useful features and of course auto ISO.
Thenks!

Nikon provides a NX viewer.
Is it supposed that I will have to purchase Capture NX?
I am using PS from CS2. I downloaded a PS plugin to read NEF files but it does not work

I really like all the options you have with it too; on a recent trip to the zoo I just used Aperture Priority mode and left that on 5.6 all day, set a minumum shutter speed of 200 to keep things blur free, and beyond that didn't have to bother paying attention to anything but composing the shots and shifting the foucs points about!

Agreed. This camera is very nicely designed and a pleasure to use.

I have multiple shooting menus set up with each one selecting a minimum shutter speed for the lensin use. So if I switch to a different lens I simply use 'My Menu' to select the appropriate settings.

Capture NX was in the box when I got my D300. Is that no longer the case?
