D300 card latch
Mar 8, 2010

I was trying to figure out what that lever with the Pacman icon was, and realized by reading the online manual, that it is the latch. I see on page 39 of the manual that the latch lever must be turned before one can open the card door. What isn't obvious is whether one must turn this latch lever back after closing the door.

BTW, I'm reading up ahead of the arrival of my used D300, which I just purchased last night, so I can't try this hands on just yet.

Incidentally, what is everyone's thoughts on this latch? I think it's gonna throw me a little since neither my D90 or D700 have it.
