    ALWAYS, ALWAYS charge the camera battery at night.

    ALWAYS make sure you put the memory card back in the camera.



    You don't want to miss great shots.

      I never remove the memory card... camera gets connected to PC for file transfer. I agree with the battery tip though!

        I carry 2 spare fully charged batteries and 2 spare memory cards plus 2 sets of charged batteries for the external flash if needed. Now I just have to remember to carry the camera bag.

                  Great pictures Stan. glad to hears things are going better after your first stop. I believe I would mail your surge guard in and have it checked out. To me it should have saved your TV. Buck

                    Well, I'm a bit late to the conversation, but I experienced an embarrassing and downright aggravating event that needs to be told of so others don't make the same mistake.

                    October of 2013, we (Jo and I and her middle sister and our youngest son) went off into Old Colorado City to the Michael Garman's Magic Town "museum." While taking pictures inside, I didn't want to use flash, so I reset the white balance setting for the type of lighting inside. (I bet you know where this is going.)

                    After we left Michael Garman's, we went up on Pike's Peak and I took a bunch of photos of the Autumn colors, especially of the Aspens. Yeppers, all the scenic shots I took came out bluish in color. Enough so, that myself and a couple of others couldn't fix my mistake.

                    So, ALWAYS remember to reset white balance. I've also forgotten to reset my image resolution on occasion and took photos that wouldn't print out so well in anything larger than an 8"X10" photo.

                      Good stuff Stan,

                      I purchased a backpack camera bag. It's light enough to wear all the time. I discovered that I don't carry pocket book style bags often enough to remember to pick it up, it's dangerous for me because I will leave it somewhere. So I wear it.

                        Lucky me

                        Fortunately, my Nikon600 has two sd slots. I never take more than one out at a time to download. For sure, gotta carry extra battery, but mine seems to last at least 1000 shots before needing recharge. Just got back from a three day trip to Yellowstone and never changed battery.......975 shots! :snapshot:Never changed the 128GB sd cards either.

                        Do also carry TWO extra dslr cameras and two pocket point and shoot. As I tell my Boy Scouts, "always have a backup" along with "always be prepared"

                          Laughing

                          I had to laugh out loud. I have three batteries that last over 200 minutes each, and when we got to a museum the other day, all three were dead. It's usually my habit to recharge one as soon as it dies. But I seemed to have suffered from a senior moment this past week. I have a small carrier on my strap that holds two batteries and three memory chips (there's always one in the camera - most of the time).

                          As it turned out, I really didn't need my camera for that much yesterday, and I used my phone for a couple of pictures I wanted to take.

                          I can laugh, because I've done it.

                            Another one for the list, ALWAYS erase the memory card before shooting the next day. It's a bummer when you import your files and there are twice as many as you shot that day.

                              If your camera is able to.

                              I recommend shooting in RAW mode. It will save more data from your camera. Then when you download them to your camera you have a lot more control over things like color balance and up to + or - 2 stops of light adjustment then you convert them to .jpg in your computer.

                              The only downside of this is a little more work on the computer and the much larger RAW files on your memory card. But it is well worth it.
