    Re: My next camera

    Any of the cameras mentioned can be controlled by you. They all have a Manual mode setting, so you can set the ISO, f-stop, and shutter speed. Just because they have all of the auto functions, doesn't mean you have to use them.

    Re: My next camera

    I agree but why pay for the stuff you dont need. It then becomes more of load on the camera. Looks like I may have located a D90.... still reviewing everything. Thanks !

    Because that's how DSLR's are made these days? Your D40x has a lot of bells and whistles already, whether you're using them or not, so I'm not sure I'm seeing your point here...

    I would suggest you look at a D300/D300s. Mainly because it's an outstanding DX body. It's weather sealed, has 2-stops more dynamic range over your D40x and no cantankerous Wi-Fi or GPS, dadgummit. It does have one of them thar new-fangled, top-mounted LCD's however. Probably powered by witchcraft...

    What are you looking to spend on a D90? I bought this one new to use as a backup body, and it has @ 100 or so shutter actuations...definitely less than 150 actuations (I also have a second D90 which was my main body, but this one I'm talking about is in like new condition). I used it once just to make sure everything worked on it. There isn't anything wrong with it. Bought it new, and I am the only one who has used it. I really wanted FX and bought a D600 (which became a D610), then a D7100 for better resolution, then also got my D750.

    A 300S would be a good camera. My friend @Bill16 just bought one. He likes his a lot.

    But just so you know... The D7200 has a Manual Setting which allows you to set Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO.

    That is the way I use mine. I do use Auto ISO a lot when shooting birds or locations with varying light that changes quickly.

    I do not use the communication tools and it does not have a GPS, although I wish it did, that would be helpful if it tagged the location. I have not got a very good memory.

    For the money and abilities of it, I love the D300s. I paid $400 just for the camera, and then I bought a lot of extras. But for the camera alone I think it was a great buy, and it is a blast to use. A pro model Nikon for cheap, as long as you don't mind that it is older tech.
    So even though I also shoot the D800e, the D300s was still worth adding to my kit.

    But whatever you decide on, I wish you the best!
