I received my D700 late Monday and I'm leaving early tomorrow AM for Las Vegas... attending AMVIV (A MINI Vacation In Vegas)... Yes, I'm a MINI driver.

Anyway, because of this and that, I really have not had a chance to sit down and study the D700. I have two batteries fully charged along with two eight gig cards and three lenses waiting to capture some light.

Is there a simple set up procedure that I could follow just to get things going? Do the cards need to be formatted? At the moment I would just like to shoot JPEG's, RAW will have to wait till I can read a bit more.

Yes I'm new to a DSLR coming from a camera in the phone it's quite intimidating... I know I'll figure it out but in time, which is not what I have a lot of now.

Thanks in advance.

Thank you,
