I've only taken two so far --

That is my DD on a swing. I think I might have sneezed as I triggered the shutter.

That is my kitchen and DD. Please excuse the mess.

*sigh* I guess this really proves that it is the person BEHIND the camera, not the camera that takes good pictures. I really stink at taking pictures!

No joking allowed in this thread ;) - this is the live view feature of the new D3 and D300.

Well, ISO 25600 is pretty awesome and low-noise, as you can see here. What we do have a problem with, unfortunately, is a little bit of desaturation; not enough to really notice however, unless you're looking for it.

Oh no he's not. There is only one true God and in Melbourne it's Gary Ablett (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xpuH7tjz8ls). :D

And to think, if only Nikon went with in-body stabilization...

You should have bought a Sony.

You guys have totally missed the point in these photos. It's obviously an inexperienced new user who has accidentally enabled the "I've had too much to drink" scene mode that the D3 and D300 have (it's located under the CSM / Advanced setup menu options along with the other 953 scene mode selections).
It just shows how advanced these new cameras are, they are no longer limited to the standard "Sports", "Portrait", "Snow" type scene modes that other brands rely on.

My best shots are taken in that scene mode :D

It's a bit harder to use on the D50, though. The drinking is still fully manual...

Not to be picky, but it does seem as if the dust removal doesn't seem to be working too well with this photo.

Oh no, you got it backwards!!! Those shots look AWESOME when you have had too much to drink. Try it and see. You would be surprised at what interesting things literally POP out of those shots.

So am I only one using my new D300??? Where are all the other shots? Come on guys, lets make everyone else jealous. (I only got the D300 because the D3 was just too much camera for me.) Oh, did I tell you how much I got it for? Ken Rockwell got it for me through a friend of a friend of a cousin of a security guard for only $200! I just can't figure out the manual too well, since it is all written in weird letters.

I managed to get the Press Release out of the bin straighten it out and fire off a couple of shots.
I can confirm that the shots previously posted are accurate examples.
This one is at a lower resolution than the previously posted shoots (ISO "large" setting, hand held 1/15 sec exposure)

Edit: After looking at the photo I'm wondering if there is some sort of banding problem with this new sensor. What do others think?
Also when I turned the Press Release into Portrait mode it rattled. Is it broken already?

Looking at this photo, its clear to see that Nikon neglected to fix the so called "Red Hue" problem that non Nikon users seem to bring up alot. Come on Nikon, whats the deal?!?!:rolleyes:

If I were you K1W1, I'd send it back for a Canon DSLR ASAP!:D;)

Why send it back. The local "rep" may just send the competition model as a way of sponsorship and conversion. Of course, that may require one to sell their soul and write gibberish no matter the subject as long as "bad" information is disiminated. However, it doesn't appear that "troll" is required in the signature or specific sponsorship be disclosed.

Then again, that may not be a good choice.... 4th copy? Wow. Quoted from a "certain" thread.

I think its pretty much well known the Mk III does have a focusing issue. Let me be one of many to have willingly admitted to this fact. I am on my 4th copy ( yes, four) and this by far is the best one; no doubt some of the earlier built Mk III had issues.

Yes I have to admit to being a touch disappointed in the sample image. I've never sent a Press Release back before so how does one go about it?
Do I fold it in quarters and put it in the DVD drive or do I do some sort of origami on it and fold it small enough to get into the CF card slot on my card reader?
Once I get it in the appropriate slot (notice that I did not say "hole") what do I do then?
How long will it be before the canon actually arrives?

I got a box from Nikon labeled gray market. And a letter stating return it here. :(

Ooh, could it be? Don's dream? I do believe they've secretly implemented in-body IS/VR without letting anyone know. What a way to one-up Canon, eh? Folks will start saying they're just steadier with a Nikon.

Guys, I can't seem to get my D3 into the "too much to drink" mode... in fact mine is stuck in ISO 25600, 1/1,000,000/sec. setting in aperture priority... the little flashing question mark comes up when I try to change it, and when I hit the info button it displays this:


You could use a lower ISO ratio, but why not continue to enjoy amazing ISO 25600?

Is anyone else experiencing problems like this?

Had that one.
To use the too much drink mode you cannot have the 50mm f1.8 lens fitted. Take that lens off and replace it with the slowest lens you have and the too much drink mode will become available whenever you are in dim light or smoky rooms with pool tables in the corner.

Thanks. Actually I kind of like it as well.
I was walking down a gravel road holding my camera in my right hand and swinging my arms as I walked. I accidentally pushed the shutter so it really is handheld at 1/15 sec. :)
