First off, respect on the credibility, even Manos has more respect than you

Anyway, have a look at www.fredmiranda.com and possibly of more use is www.dpreview.com as there is a very active forum for D70 owners.

My only advice without seeing a picture with Exif information is perform a number of tests at F8 with different shutter speeds, check the results and histogram for a good balance.

Have a look at this as well ... http://www5e.biglobe.ne.jp/~komin/cu...70download.htm

Cheers

Mark

P.S. Just to get this post back on track. Four of my friends now own my first RIB ( 6m Delta ); boat is called 'Four Play'

Brambles / Mark, thanks for advice and links. I had been loyal to Sony starting with the P5, then F505, then F707, then F717, then F828, I must say the 828 was the best, easy to use and took micro drives. Anyway I was told that these cameras were nowhere near as good as digital SLR so thought I would try one to see what it was all about, well I think I dived in too deep, they are so complicated, need extra lenses carted about to get the same as the F828 and I can't get decent pictures even on auto! They all seem to come out a bit dark, perhaps I need to get out of auto mode and fiddle a bit. Anyway this is not about RIBS so better leave it there, if you want to see some pics and give me hints you can see them at :-

Some may seem odd but have been subject of experiments e.g. look at the reflections on the back of the air stewardess (some pictures are F828)

My parents used to have a shetland boat called "Take it easy"...

It was stored in a carpark behind their house, it was during the winter - we had let the tires down and chained it to a concrete post...

Anyway one day we looked out of the window and it had gone - some gits had stolen it... they didnt try and cut the chain, the broke the concrete post...

And according to some other neigbours (who kindly watched), they towed it away with flat tires to!

So, I guess they really did "Take it easy"

lol

Its all in a name..........

Seen photographed in a Scottish compilation book of funny news articles was the boat called the "Haar Dawn" ............obviously named after the early morning sea mists from the North Sea
