fyi if you missed it. If you don't have a D7000, you probably don't care. If your d7000 works fine, you probably don't care either. Only 1.01 was worth a hoot as it fixed the video hotspot at night (why shoot video at night?). Also D800/D4 firmware for screen freeze is out. I don't want to make this a retweet of product or rumor sites as other here have done. Did you know if you use View NX it will tell you what the latest firmware update is. (if your firewall didn't block it)

In other news, I think we might have a sunnier summer in Seattle. The (Seattle) Fremont Summer Solstice Parade was a success, we didn't get rained on. The nude cyclists didn't have to wear saran wrap over their paint job this year.

Somehow I think a sunnier summer in Seattle means 4 days without rain instead of 3. No thanks. ;-)

I think the misconception about the Pacific Northwest is how much rain it get. Actually it might not have as much rain per inch as some other cities, it is that it is gray and cloudy more often then not. I learned to adjust or make the best of my photography here. A partly cloudy day, like up to 35% cloud is actually a perfect situation for outdoor portrait photoshoot. I think people call this situation an outdoor/open softbox. 50-75% cloudy is not great and might as well leave the camera at home, colors are just dull. 100% sunny, leave the camera at home too, too good of a day for a camera. I haven't taken much advantage of this, but the PNW has quite a few natural scenic places for landscape photography. And it got some nice wildlife within a few hours drive too.

i used to think the same way about cloudy/sunny days and leaving the camera at home. but when i got my d7000 and started my flashes off camera in ittl mode i quickly changed my mind, especially with high speed sync on sunny days. now noon sun is no problem anymore, i just kill the sun with a fast shutter (1/4000 and faster), and use my flashes for the main exposure, it works great! just wanted to share if you've not tried it. the more i learn about the nikon cls system, the more i love it.

You are correct. Sometimes it rains on the planet we live in called earth. What a great forum. I have a D7000 and I'm registered Republican. I saw a turtle once at the zoo. Blah Blah Blah.

I will use the flash even on a bright sunny day for portrait if I can. I don't care to flash any else, maybe macro. Don't use aperture priority all the time, Nikon set it to 1/60s most of the time. Do manual and set it to a higher shutter speed and whatever aperture you want. I don't find 1/60s as sharp as I like. The ittl will compensate automatically.
