"RE: New D4 Arrived Home Yesterday"

Hi Dwight, Many thanks for your words of encouragement. My work flow consists of downloading the images from the card to a primary file on my iMAC 24. Then after viewing the files I will move them over to iPhoto and play with them. I am still "learning about" Aperture that is installed on my MAC. The D4 will probably prompt me to learn faster. I have a library of images from digital, 35mm slides, 35mm negatives, and color and B&W photos in my primary file. I am looking forward to using the D4 both for family holiday images, and taking pics of the grandkids at their respective sportiing events; golf, baseball, and soccer. I do periodic photo work for the church and golf season photos for the high school golf team which my oldest grandson plays on.

I like your thought on creating a spreadsheet of the settings on the D4. The complexity certainly will tax just the mental memory process so I will get it down on a spreadsheet. The D4 is set up based upon a full two days of reading the manual. I will take some pics later today and see how they turn out, including the image file sizes. Want to understand the differential between my D200 and the D4. I currently have the ISO set at Auto and from 100 to 12,800. Based upon your comments and others I think I will adjust that down to 6400 and try it out.

As I get some experience under my belt with the D4 I will update my profile. I am thinking about establishing a SmugMug account and then put a link to it here in Nikonian. I need to get past the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

I believe that big tractor in the barn is the famous "John Deere Green" - nice rig.
