Thanks Brian for the input, so i did turned on the NR but you guys are right, i probably didn't wait until the JOB NR finished. I just did some shots with the lens cap on and noticed the JOB NR. I guess during the shoot, i was using a remote and sitting indoors, once the timer was up, i ran out and checked the pics in the dark. I will go out for a real test when time permits. I am glad i turned to nikonian forum for help! cheers.
