Well after reading for two weeks I finally figured out how to post. DUH. Amazing how you can look right at something and not see it.
I just bypassed the latest and greatest to begin my foray back into serious photography with digital and a D700. Brand spanking new off the camera store shelf, Im glad I made this decision..
D700 seemed so much like my old babies, my FM-2's when it first introduced itself however this is one complex baby so Im sure I'll be back for more help from time to time.
My biggest problem is not all those selections in the menus system, I can wade through that. The problem is what the settings mean and how to relate that to all the old films I knew so well. IE: how do I setup for a K-25 look for my macro or and E-64 look for seas and forest landscapes. What if I want that Fujifilm look. Or if I need the speed of Kodacolor 400 that I used at the Balloon races and dog shows. Im pretty checked out now on ISO theoreticaly but I havent even started trying to put it into practice.
This may make no sense to the people who grew up on digital but maybe it will strike a cord with some of the older posters.
Anyway I've rambled long enough. If you can point me to any websites, pages, or posting that will get me started it would be much appreciated.
