    Just walk around shooting at 1600 all night :cool:

    I was thinking about it yesterday...I havent used my tripod since November with the 700. I'm sure the D300 is pretty usable up there too, congrats

    the Beast and battery grip make this thing a monster:bowdown:

    slap a pocket wizard on there and it's big:o

    I gotta get used to be able to move my hand to the grip and not the weird monkey arm angle shit when I go to portrait:o

    You get used to it. I still do it sometimes and I've always had a grip on my bodies.

    the wife already hates how much money I spent on this:o

    and I had to rob the battery from D80 so I could have 2 in the 300. HCE didn't have any when I bought the grip:o. So now that I've done that I have to order a spare battery so I can consider selling the 80:o

    i don't know shit about nikon. is the d300 a 1.6 or is it full-frame? if 1.6, same price-ish as the 50D?

    I'd already bought 1 for when I was shooting with friends, and she made arrangements with my mother to have her get another. So I have 3:fawk:

    and yes, the 300 is a crop sensor, retails for 1500ish. Got it considerably cheaper:o

    mother bought me stand, clamp, and umbrella....wife wants to know if I want another set up or a softbox....the umbrella set up will be cheaper:o...especially since I need another flash to go with it too:o

    those vivatar flashes are starting to look good tho

    i just bought a 285, and while it's obviously not as nice as my 580, it's been a hell of a lot of fun to play with on the umbrellas.

    i might have a line on another 285 if you're interested (lightly used) ... friend is thinking about getting rid of it.

    285 is fucking huuuuuuge :rofl:

    oh, and make sure to get the right cable - the 285 uses some goofy-ass connector
