... the battery as I write. The new 8800 arrived a short time ago.

This is the latest in a long line of digicams dating back to 1996.

I'm now an officially converted SONY guy!

Will get some pix up over the next few days.

Hi Earl

Three things:

i) Disable Welcome (Welcome Screen in the Set Up Menu)... this knocks one second off the start-up time.

ii) Change Release Speed to Quick Response (Monitor Options/Release Speed in the Set Up Menu)... this allows virtually instantaneous shot to shot.

iii) Update to Firmware Version 1.4 (Download from Nikon Support)... improved contrast and sharper images.

Happy shooting.

Bruce

ravigali,

about $750 at expresscameras.com in hindsite, buydig.com would probably be a better deal.
