Default Another Newbie with a D90

I just joined the Forums and I also just got my new D90 the other day from Dell.com. What a great camera, I have been reading everything I can about the camera, and it still doesn't do it justice. I got it with the 18-105 kit lens, and I was very happy to find out that the old Nikkor 1.8 50mm lens I had from my 35mm 6006 works with it, so extra bonus.

I can't believe how fast this thing is, it turns on faster then any of my old camera's and it focuses with lightning speed too. I'm sure it will take me a few weeks if not more to get used to holding a SLR again, and to learn just a fraction of the features that these new camera's have.

But I am truley looking forward to spending time here learning from all the great photographers here.

Lee

Great camera isnt it, and you can push the ISO way up without any major noise problems.

I got a copy of the Magic Lantern D90 guide on Dvd, it was very helpful

I got the Ken Rockwell guide app for my Iphone, I'm just not that happy with it, it is the exact same thing you can get on the net, it just costs you $4.99.

Where did you get your copy of Magic Lantern?

Thanks for the info, and I hope you don't get in trouble for doing so.

Sure, no problem, as long as you're not associated with the site you're plugging (as we'd consider that to be using the forums for commercial purposes/advertising, which we frown upon here).

Well done on getting this great camera, I brought mine this year after my D80 developed a sensor problem that was going to cost me an arm and two legs to fixed which I decided as it was 2 1/2 years old was not worth it, that and the fact a new D90 body was about 150 more expensive.
As already said with the D90 you can shoot at much higher ISO than the 80 plus it has live view and produces a sharper shot.
Enjoy your new toy
