The D300s owner manual is really thick. It’s gonna take some time to get through. But as I said yesterday, the camera is also fantastically intuitive, once you learn what each of the buttons does. And if you are familiar with another type of dSLR, each of the buttons does something you are already used to. I’ve had many a moment over the last two days of saying, “Ohhhhh! Makes that easy.”
The autofocus rocks, the active d-lighting rocks, the incremental ISO sensitivity rocks (i.e., ISO between, say, 400 and 800). Rock rock rock rock rock. Rock.
As a testament to the quality of this camera, even my daughter is making more of an effort than usual to try to chew on it. Saliva survival report perhaps to come soon.
