Selling the D300-mixed feelings

16 January 2019 - 02:15 AM

l bought it new from B&H in Jan 2009-10 years ago. lt was my main body until Jan 2014 when l got the D7100. ln late 2015 l sent it to Life Pixel to get converted to infrared. Before the d300 l had a D50 l bought new and a d100 l bought used in 2007. l wasn't happy with them, but they were digital SLRs that l could afford. They were duds compared to the F100 l had. The D300 was the body that made me excited about digital photography. Now l have it up for sale here and on DP Review. lt will be good to sell some gear l'm not using that much to replinish the funds that buying the Canon M50 took. But on the other hand, l'm going to miss the body that changed my opinion of going digital. Before the D300, going digital was a necessary evil. When l got it it made digital fun and exciting. Oh well, can't keep everything forever.

lnfrared converted D300

i am the original owner. Bought it from B&H in  Jan 2009. lt was lR converted by Life Pixel. lt has the 665nm super color filter. Keep in mind the D300 is a body that will NOT let you set a custom WB after the lR conversion. So you have to shoot in RAW and get the false colors the way you want them in editing software. Everything is in good working condition. The only issue is the rubber cover on the right side is coming loose. lt came back from Life Pixel that way. l didn't want to send it back and be without it for another 2 or 3 weeks so l lived with it and use duct tape to hold it on. it comes with 2 nikon batteries, nikon charger, 2gb card, body cap, and rear screen protector. Shutter count is 32,136. Price is $275usd shipped to USA addresses. l take Paypal. More pics upon request.


**This site will not let me upload photos now, so l'll try to get some pics up tomorrow.

Neon Tetras

Got some pics of my Neons in the other 10 gallon tank. l set up the SB-80DX in manual mode fired with a wireless trigger. The flash was above the tank aimed down. Since l'm starting to shoot RAW, the flash output wasn't that important. But l made a major mistake-forgot to set up the D7100 for RAW+JPEG. Shot jpeg only!! So they were overexposed. Was going to shoot more, but when l realized it l had already broke down the flash setup-next time :-)
