Hi all

Posted this on the Nikon forum to no avail so far, so apologies for cross-posting here, though it's probably more relevant. OK, so I've just upgraded from D70s to D7000 and have a heap of complexity, extra options and more practice to do.... I've been reading up about the focus issues, and I'll need to get my head around that separately, but I was in the studio this weekend, shooting with my usual settings and was expecting some rustiness and general slowness as I got used to the menus. I wasn't expecting strobe synch speed problems.

So I'm shooting at 1/250s f/11 ISO 100, AF-S, Preset WB. With the D70s I always shot at 1/250 and never had any shutter drag issues. During this session there were one or two occasions where the wireless trigger failed to activate the strobes, but I put this down to the battery in the transmitter or receiver being patchy, and just deleted the black frames in camera. I also got a few of these weird frames where the shutter wasn't moving across the frame quickly enough.

Anyone have any thoughts? As this is a brand new camera, I had a lurking doubt at the back of my mind that it could be a hardware problem, but wasn't going to jump to conclusions. Thanks for your feedback.
