Hello all,took my new camera out friday on a combination "fishing and trying out new camera" day. the leaves are peaking now here in Indiana, so I new it would be a good test. my question is about exposure settings. when shooting pics while the sun was bright on the trees, the best results came when I underexposed about 2/3 to 1 stop. does that sound about right?nice site. first thing I did was search for info on reformating, since the camera shop told me about reformating the card after each use. my search confimed that.heres a few of the pics, http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v605/nippr/web/DSC_0081w.jpghttp://img.photobucket.com/albums/v605/nippr/web/DSC_0121w.jpghttp://img.photobucket.com/albums/v605/nippr/web/DSC_0071crw.jpgI think I'm going to be happy with my D50. can't wait to try it with my 80-200 2.8 lens!Thanks
If it works it is the right thing to do. The meter will only give you a starting point. The histogram is the key to good exposures.Looks like you have it right.Check out enhancing or intensifying filters for more punch.
Beautiful photos there. I love the colors. Looks like the settings you used worked out quite well.Thanks for the tip on reformatting. I will start doing that after each use!

Did they give any reason why it's better to reformat each time?

>Did they give any reason why it's better to reformat each >time? when you delete pics from the card, some files still remain. reformating wipes it clean.thanx for the compliments, all.
