new d300 from amazon.com
My husband just surprised me with a new d300. I have been reading many of the forums here and trying to learn what I can about them. I'm very grateful for my husbands generosity but at the same time am a little freaked out by the fact that he ordered it from amazon.com. Should I be concerned? A lot of the readers say to buy from B&H or other reputable stores and that is what I planned to do eventually. Help me please! How can I make sure that what I received is a sound camera. Don't want to even use if there is a way to make sure before I know..

Thank you,Paulette H..

And don't forget to have him buy you some lenses, flash, filters, memory cards, case, etc..

Comment #4

I feel so much better. Thank you. He tells me a lens is on the way. 50mm 1.4. I'm making a list of other things I'll need. SB800 flash, grip, bag, and trying to figure out what memory cards to get.

I should probably start by taking the camera out of the box shouldn't I? This is going to be so exciting! So much to learn! I'm grateful for the wealth of knowledge at this site!!!.

Nice camera... wish someone would buy me one, or an E3..

A lot of the camera stuff that is not in their own warehouse comes from Adorama anyway (in that case the item page will mention that Adorama or some other retailer is the actual seller even though you are ordering it through Amazon)..

Amaazon's computer then sends you an e-mail showing the items shipping from their warehouse and all the sub-orders they generated to other dealers for the rest of the items. Then you get e-mails from the other retailers showing the orders they recieved from Amazon on your behalf..

One time I ordered some camera stuff off Amazon, with standard shipping, on Monday night and the items that were drop shipped from Adorama were at my door on Wednesday..

That one-stop shopping seems to be rather handy... saves me a lot of typing and web surfing (and probably boosts sales for both Amazon and the retailers that sell through them too)...

Thank you for clearing that up for me. Obviously I'm new to all of this and very overwhelmed. It's time to get on the horse and see if I can ride..

Great Camera, congratulations!...though I've been a long time Canon user the D300 is definitely drool-worthy!..

Comment #12

Thank you, Phil. My gosh, my first time on the forum and I've made a huge fool of myself AND offended the owner. I apologize to Amazon. I have a LOT to learn and this is definitely the place to do it...

No, you didn't say anything foolish. You had concerns and asked an honest question. Nothing wrong with that. We're here to help..

Enjoy your camera, and post some photos...

Thank you for your support. It'll be awhile for pics. There's a lot of reading to do first. Don't want to make mistakes getting it set up. There is just so much to have to know.Paulette H..

Once you are comfortable with the camera you may want to explore the Nikon D300 forum. The folks there have been an invluable resource for me. You also may want to invest in Thom Hogan's eBook on the D300. Absolutely the best reference out there.Art Caputi..

Another thought: Check this very useful thread:.

I have been reading the D300 and the beginners forums for about a month now and plan to continue. Also would like to get Thom Hogans e book- and one of Bryan Peterson's that several people have discussed in these forums..

You are entirely welcome. You will find a wealth of information on the D300/D200/D100 forum and some photo posts that are absolutely stunning. And I think you will most threads to be very civil and respectful and most participants eager to share their knowledge and experience. Good luck with your new acquisition - your husband was incredibly thoughtful and generous.Art Caputi..
