OK, I just took it outside for the first time and was using AFC and 39 point tracking. Had the 80-200 G with a 1.4 TC on it. I was using CH burst and just tracked them with the button down.
I am going to crop the original differently after I get over the frustation that Adobe CS 3 does not directly support the D600 (and what makes them even THINK anyone will pay $150 a year to use their software??)
But in the meantime, check out this Goshawk chasing off a Red Shoulder. I can get excited about the possibilities!!
In uncropped NEF, the Red shoulder's eye still pops!
Thanks. Last night I read Darrell's book and realized the power of "My Menu" and the two User settings. This is a very photographer friendly setup; you basically have 3 templates that are easily adapted with "my Menu". Very cool. The D200 required an awful lot cognitive skill to remember where everything was. This is almost as simple as an FM once you get it sorted out.
Oh, yes, me too! Just sent mine back to Nikon for the shutter re-do...very excited to get it back.
U1 and U2 are incredibly helpful. I shoot landscapes and wildlife and find them so useful in quickly switching between types of shots. I learned to use them with my D7000. Ken Rockwell (no flames, please) has an very good discussion you might find interesting, too.
I still have my original D600 from well over a year ago..never sent it in for shutter replacement, and have been cleaning it myself with zero issues. Great camera body to own! purchased it new for 1999 with a lens that i sold for 289 8 months later..great investment.
Looking to purchase another D600, was just waiting to see results of the D610, not much of any difference at all between the two, looks like i will purchase yet another D600 to compliment.
I would highly recommend Adobe Lightroom. You can crank out 98% of your photo editing and cataloging with that bad boy. Every version they release keeps getting better and better. I find myself only using Photoshop to do skin retouching.
