    You had exposure compensation (EC) of +2/3 dialed in, so the camera exposed the shot 2/3 stop over the exposure it normally would. The first thing I would do is take out that +2/3 EC. That would take down the exposure somewhat. If it still seems too bright, shorten the shutter speed or stop down the aperture (to a larger number, such as f/8.) You can check the exposure in the LCD after you take the picture by looking at the histogram or blinking highlights display.

    I know some people consistently use EC, but I never do. I just manually adjust the exposure every time. I'd stay away from it until you are more comfortable with how to achieve the exposure you want.

    I hope the above info isn't too technical, let me know if you need something explained. We all had to learn sometime

    Thank you very much! Your explanations are perfect. I did not realise that I had the Exposure Compensation on. I admit that it's all still pretty new so I often forget things (i.e the EC).

    Question like that, you say that you do not use the EC, I admit that on a day like yesterday, I had no reason to use it, but in a situation that the flash is needed, but it's still not enough, what do you do? I don't know if you understand my question, but hopefully you do...

    Also, what is the difference between the flash compensation and the exposure compensation?

    Rich, those are great shots! And yes, I believe the flash would've helped getting more details on its scales. I probably would have ditched the flash and just took shots without it, but I was already out there with it so I figured I try and see what difference it would make. I don't have shots without the flash but I'm quite sure it wouldn't come out as sharp as it did using it. That's awesome how you caught its tongue sticking out though creepy but awesome!

    You guys never cease to amaze me! Here's a pic I took over my wifes shoulder while she was reading a cookbook. Nothing special, just thought it was kind of cool. Man that 50mm 1.4 is SHARP!

    thanks bro! does the grip really work well? the D80's grip is quite large already.. thinking i might as well buy two extra spare batteries instead of the grip (and possibly two more batteries.

    i'm getting about 900-1000 shots per charge

    It makes a world of difference for me(I have huge hands)

    It feels more balanced and feels sturdier. I'm at about 1300 shots now and not even at half power
