Just got a SanDisk Extreme 3 4g SD card for my D90 to dump all its pictures on. Boy is it a lot nicer than the card that came with the camera. Leaps and bounds.

I was going to get a Sandisk extreme III to go with my D90, but there was a special on the 8GB Transcend Class 6 cards. Its nowhere near as fast as the Extreme III, but its fast enough. Shooting at Large/Normal, I've rattled off 30+ shots without a single pause. Shooting at Fine reduces it to about 15 shots, but thats more than i'll ever use.

The price difference is just too much though between the Extreme III and conventional Class 6 cards.

Yup. And we aren't ever going to need transfer rates that fast. Much better to buy another backup card if anything.

I call it the Deadly Ninety.

Thanks to this forum , Gordon's reviews , and great help I got exactly what I needed.

tore my wallet with the purchase of the the camera + lens + another lens + filter. But when I finally seen the results of the pics , it made me smile , and you know what they say ......" a smile is worth a million bucks " .

All worth it in the end. Stay smiling people.

Shaving: a short d-movie

trying out a tripod for once along with some other stuff...

used this from another forum:

Quote:
1. Aperture Priorit mode
2. Put the Lens @ F22 or Auto Mode
3. Set the Aperture with the Aperture Wheel on the front of the camera to f5.6 or 8 (electronic aperture)
4. Activate LV mode while pointing at the source
5. THEN unlock the wheel to engage the manual Iris. It'll throw an error but it's fine for recording.

nice D-Movie Palakaboy!
I'm in to the D90-users lol..
Eumh one question; is a sandisk extreme 3 fast enough to shoot RAW continously a 4,5fps?

it should be okay.... just dont expect your buffer to recover as fast with it.
