I shot all afternoon with my D300 and it went well, aside from kicking myself for discovering (after the fact) that I'd left it in ISO 640 from some night shot testing last night...

I did hit one little buglet along the way.

I was shooting in "timer" mode to reduce shake on the tripod triggering the shutter release. At one point it got into a state where it wouldn't auto focus. I tried various configuration changes, and tried power off/on, and still no auto-focus. Finally I switched back to "S" mode, and auto-focus resumed, and has continued to work since then, even in "timer" mode.

Hopefully not a camera defect, and just a minor buglet they can fix in a firmware update...

Nikon doesn't have any official channel for reporting things like this, do they?


"In 1914... I climbed to the top of Lassen Peak six times... taking pictures... I realized that if the mountain should blow off while I was looking into... the crater, I would not be here to tell the tale. But for all that I never experienced the feeling of fear. For I was there to take pictures, and the pictures were the principal object of my thoughts", B. F. Loomis
