Can you post original photo from the camera?

TIA

The original JPG doesn't look very good (my fault, not the cam), and I don't want to post the original CR2 file. But, just so you know - the lizard photo (if that is the one you are talking about) is a crop of the original, white balance set in Adobe Camera Raw, unsharp mask used in Photoshop CS3, saved as JPG.

The 4x6 prints look great from this camera (from the JPGs, haven't tried printing anything from the raw files yet).

Where have I heard that before?
LOL!!! And we will be hearing it again and again for a long time, I'm sure. Week before last, I was shooting on one that had to be 20 years old, so far.

I'm kinda partial to Nikon D40x since I own one, but Canon EOS-40D is great camera.

Of course, I would be partial to the brand I alerady own. To get a Canon now, when you already have a Nikon, would mean you couldnt use any of your present lenses, accessories, etc. Switching brands is almost never worth the pain of the changeover.

I read somewhere that there's an adaptor to stick Canon lenses on Nikon cameras, and possibly vice versa. Anyone know of that?

There are adapters Heath, but you generally lose AF and often metering as well. And with all these new lenses that don't have aperture rings on the lens you often can't adjust your aperture either.

Unless you're using manual lenses, I get the impression that the adapters are not particularly useful.

Thanks for the heads up, Mark. I think I'll stick with one camera and its lens system. Though I can only use AF-S lenses (where the lens handles autofocusing vs. higher-end models) on my Nikon D40x, most of the lenses I buy are modern, and if I move up to a Nikon D300, I can use the same lenses.

If I use an older lens, I can simply manually focus it, no sweat. Other high-end Nikon cameras will handle most older lenses that can do autofocus from the camera.
