cuz there was no battery? thats my guess.

The battery was working, I was looking through the menus. Maybe someone before me jacked it up somehow. Or maybe the battery was low?

Yes. :)

That's pretty sweet!

I'd like that for scapes! Not so much for macro do to the usage of the hot shoe. But it indeed looks like a sweet set up.

It's going to be really helpful for scapes. I can count how many times it would've been useful. Especially, low to the ground comps where trying to look at the LCD was a pita. There are reviews on Youtube. Check it out. :)

Nope. I can't use one if I use a remote control.

Perfect for me since I don't use remotes. Back when Nikon used to include remotes and memory cards with bodies/cameras I got a nice rebate on a Coolpix by selling the included remote.

That's true but putting them back together isn't so easy and those instructions with pictures will come in handy for putting Humpty Dumpty back together again. :lol:

I use GPS with all my cameras, but D800 is not one of them. And I also can use remotes with all of my GPS's

Is there any kind of program you can use with the GPS data or do you just need to dig out the GPS data and run it through a map?

With exiftools and some creativity, you can do everything with those data.

I work with GIS, so I am deep into those map-applications, and a little less into all those photo-applications.

Has anybody had a bent front plate/lens mount on a nikon camera? My d800 went in for service for the second time for autofocus issues. Both times they said the lens mount is bent due to impact damage.

I'm very careful with my gear. Maybe I need to bubble wrap these damn things because I have never had a problem shooting with the 70-200mm 2.8 on canon.

Wow, talk about frustrating!

I've read about them saying that from multiple people. Seems like a common way for them to try to get out repairing them under warranty.

Okay, not a bend mount. Missing screw to be exact. A screw that costs exactly $650. Do you pay the "impact damage" or fight this? I'm going to fight!

Yes! Unless there is something else that is damaged, but that is what they said in their report to me. Missing screw caused loose mirror. I asked if screw was found and they said no. I don't remember screw falling out of my camera. I tend to notice things like that!

Needless to say, I'm a bit fired up after having spend around 10,000 on nikon equip in the past 6 months only to be charged $650 for a missing screw and blamed for causing it to fall out!
