Re: newbie here - hello everybody

Welcome e60,

The hood should help reduce stray light bouncing into your lens when you are shooting outdoors. It also offers a little protection against accidentally bumping your lens into objects.

Experience with my D40 tells me to use some EV adjustment, or highlights will be blown. In general, it is better to err on the side of slightly underexposure, as that can be fixed in post prossessing.

Good luck and enjoy your new toy.
