I was in New Orleans for Nikonians work and decided to pick up locally a ThinkTANK Photo Airport Acceleration backpack for ANPAT 10 this coming September.

The short trip to Bennett's Camera in Metairie ended up being very expensive.

I then decided to buy the Nikon D700 with MB-D10, 2nd battery, and a 14-24mm f/2.8G AF-S Nikkor.

Before I could say STOP!, a ThinkTANK Lightning Fast small bag for a brand new SB-900, a ThinkTANK StreetWalker (to take all back home - they did not have at the store the Pro model) and a 8GB CF card by Belkin (ARGH!) to start shooting immediately.

I need to pay my credit card as soon as possible so I can forget the total of the tab for which I did not even get batteries for the flash.

Back at the PhotoProShop I added a Kirk LB-D700G L-bracket and a Gary Fong Lightsphere Universal for the new flash.

What a trip! And what a camera!

But it was not until a full week later -yesterday- that I had the time and opportunity to do some "serious" snap shooting.

Now I know what you are all raving about and will make my best to soon have a field report on it at the Resources.

I have a couple of questions for you if I may.

a) How does a Nikon D2x Auto WB-2 translates into D700 settings? Vivid? WB A1?

b) How do you change the built-in flash settings? I've never owned a SLR with a built-in flash and it is set at TTL-BL. I know I must have missed it at the custom settings.

Have a great time :-)
