not very happy with Nikon customer's support
Seems to work inside. will try it outside next. thx.
In the Canon, I used to use auto iso often (which sets itself to 400) and often A or S mode. Anyway, the two systems are different as Ford and Honda. But yeah, I know tons of ppl are fine with either one apparently. Not easy to make one brand do pretend it's another brand.
As for brand preference, don't have a big one. I'l take what works well/easy, and is one of the popular brands (helps in resale).
