Re: I am an idiot

I have had the D800E for several months. It really isn't an auto camera at all. I find myself taking test shots and adjusting very often. Taking a shot trying to have things at auto may work occassionally but often I just live with the several test shots and then once its all setup I am ready to go.

I often shoot in M mode (manual) or Aperture priority where I want to keep subect isolation as high as possible with the lowest F ratio the lens has. Also for doing panoramas I use F7.1, M mode or A mode, no auto ISO as you don't want it changing exposures between individual shots in a panorama/mosaic.
