Well finally got it and I must say it feels solid and worth the money. I've taken some experimental shots at different settings (indoors only so far) and using the TIF eeting the resolution is pretty sharp and I can muck around in photoshop with them.

As always iPhoto on my mac downloaded all the pics with no uss and with no additional drivers necessary - recognised the camera as a Nikon 8800 immediately....ah I love macs... :-)

The battle lines are drawn ! KLR vs BMW. PC vs Mac. At least we both have a good camera !

Let us know what you think of it.

The great thing about my mac is that most cameras are plug & play - iPhoto the main picture album software recognised the 8800 immediately and downloaded the pics immediately - I've used it on my pc at work (sony vaio) and installed picture project.

I'm happy with the quality of the pics but I'm still waiting on a bigger flash card arriving - ordered a 2GB card, at the moment using a 512mb which on the tiffs setting only gave me 48 pictures....

Hi Nadeem,

Congrats on your 8800 digcam arriving

You may want to consider using fine JPG (low compression)setting instead of TIFF.

You will probably not a decrease in quality but you should be able to take at least twice the pics you can if you shoot all TIFF.
