Re: New to P600: optimum moonshot settings?

Thanks Jim, it was early morning and I had to rush somewhere, so couldn't take the tripod out, but supported my hands on the window grille. I haven't tried bracketing yet, though have heard it from many people that it's a good idea in order to capture the full dynamic range.

However, the first challenge is to focus accurately, and I'm not used to the way the options and focus assist magnification work on this camera. Just opened the box 11 hrs back, you see! I might just turn the Assist off when I use it. I wish there were more customisable buttons, but I will try to find the best mix.

Some help about the camera remote app will also be appreciated. Why does the damn thing stay on the notification bar? Does Nikon think people buy tablets just for their cameras?
