"Really dumb question!"
Sat 15-Dec-12 09:09 PM by mkbee1

West Valley, US
          

I'm saving my money to buy a D90...it's way more complicated than my D50, but has a couple of features that I would like. I bought a Magic Lantern Guide on daBay, and am studying it in preparation for the great day, but I am confused.

Pictures on pages 141 and 149 show the D90 power switch, with the standard off and on positions, but it looks like there is another position, marked by a small light bulb icon. What does that do? I can't seem to find a reference to it anywhere.

What are the opinions on the Nikonians' D 90 guide? Better than the Magic Lantern offering?

Thanx;
Carl

I think that illuminates the top panel.

There is the Nikonian Press's Mastering the Nikon D90. See the pinned post at the top of this forum.

If you have registered your D50 with Nikon and established a Nikon account, you can download a copy of the D90 user manual.

George and MFPHOTO1:


Thanks for the replies. I finally found one tiny reference, on P. 35 of the Guide, and it does illuminate the control panel.

Although the Nikonians Press' D90 book is 3 years old, Amazon still offers copies, and I will be ordering one after the first of the year. I will see if I can download the D90 manual from Nikon, too.

Thanks again.
Carl

It illuminates both the top and rear panels. I use it all the time.

Received my D90, and am busily reading manuals and guides. I LIKE it! Now if the snow will just quit so I can go shoot something!

Why don't you shoot the snow?

Congrats on the new D90. I really like mine. Make sure you download the D90 PDF from Nikon. Even though it's old, its performance is still extremely good (better than any new crop sensor Canon) and its menu and general interface is modern. The new Nikon D4 has one feature I really want on my D90...and that's about it. Otherwise, except to go full-frame, I have no lust for any newer Nikon. It's a good camera.

Hi Carl.

Congratulations on joining and especially your D90.
That is what my A camera is.
(my B is a D70)

>>I LIKE it! Now if the snow will just quit so I can go shoot something!<<
The winter and snow is one of the best opportunities you could have for shooting. Looking forward to some of your images.

Terry.

I have had a D90 now for 3+ years and I love it.

I DO want to move up at some point in the future, but the D90 has been just great.

I think you will be very happy!
