    It came down to these for me too...

    I suppose it comes down to these two for most as well.

    Sammy's gave me a deal on my Nikon D40x.... they gave me the Camera + 18-55mm + 55-200mm + tripod + camera bag all for $615.00 +tax.

    My dad was the one who said to go there... they'll deal with you.

    OK, so I have finally had a chance to try it (shows you how much time I have had as of late if I am finally getting around to importing any photos), and it doesn't really work like I would prefer it to. The default in Lightroom is for it just to ignore the jpgs and import the RAWs. If you override that so it does import the jpegs, it doesn't stack them with their respective raws. If you autostack, it stacks the jpeg under the raw (for the Canon at least, I have a feeling it is because the RAW is written first, then the jpeg), so it doesn't really help you. It seems that the most effective so far is to just take the one time hit, when importing have it render the 1:1 preview, and go get a cup of something while you wait.

    Also, on a side note, USB 2 reader vs. Firewire 800 reader, holy cow what a difference. I tried to limp by on a USB 2 reader for a while, and I just got the FW 800 reader back, so uber fast.

    The guy's vids are "embedding disabled."

    Here's his stuff....

    YouTube - Lilkiwiguy87's Channel

    I didn't know the D3 had an in-camera HDR feature!?!?

    WOOT!!

    He's also got a website.

    Welcome to Phozoid 4D

    It's supposed to be his professional website, but it is absolutely FULL of bad grammar and spelling mistakes. Looks professional, reads like a third-grader's work, sad to say. Still, he's got some good stuff on youtube and a relatively useful tutorial on remote flash technique up there.
