1st shot with my AW1. Had to take my sons car to Les Schwab to have the battery checked (it's fine). Put the camera and manual in my jacket pocket - it's small - and hoped to read something on operating this thing. Got it in "auto" mode, seems to work ok. This was with the tiny 10mm 2.8 lens. Les Schwab plug, I bring our cars there for various things, they never charge me so I walk across the road and buy them a bakers dozen of donuts for their work. I don't see how they make any money.

I have been using a seculine and velo remote shutter release on my D800. Yesterday I tried connect my Nero Cable to the cameras port and the port broke and recessed in to the camera. I have been very careful everytime I connect some 10 pin connector to my cam but yesterday was just a big surprise. Read thru the net it was not an isolated case of the port getting easily damaged. Anybody got an experience on getting theirs fixed and how much would be the possibe cost for repairs?

Try these guys or Nikon Service Center. Cost is normally around $350 give or take a few.

@gqtuazon,
I would say I was just lucky that I took Pearl's advice to purchase the Mack Diamond Warranty when she sent me the replacement unit. My unit is out of warranty already and I am going to be using the Mack Warranty. I will be dropping my unit at their New Jersey office this week. By the way Pearl already left PCnation.

I've been posting a bunch of shots in the bird section and neglecting my fellow Nikon shooters. ;)

Here are a couple, both taken with the D7100.

D800e with a 50 F1.4 AF D lens. It is noisy but seems okay. My 50 F1.2 was sharper I think but havent shot much with the Nikon yet!

ill ask here-
for portraits and lifestyle shots of my children- should I go classic 5d or nikon d7000. (not d700) I really love a full frame, as I've had both the 40d and the classic 5d, but had to put the hobby away for a bit, but I love the idea of faster focus. Of course I'm sure there are others to throw out there too. My budget this year, with the idea of upgrading next spring, is around $600 for a camera body. I'm willing to purchase used and refurbished. What do you think?! feel free to offer up other suggestions as well. EDIT: I forgot to mention that it's very important that I have a clear nice bright viewfinder, and I do love a nice lcd screen.

The 5D has FF and the "softness" which may be beneficial for children portraits. With FF cameras, good fast lenses are slightly more expensive too.

Meanwhile the D7000 benefits from newer technology, faster AF, higher resolution, video, better LCD screen and a host of other things. Smaller size if that matters.

Depending on what kind of children pics you are after, I'd be inclined to recommend the D7000 which makes chasing after them a tad easier.
