Dang, reminds me of the first time I watched a blu-ray on a HD TV, felt like I was watching the actors on stage from a seat 10 feet away.  Those pics almost feel like I could reach out and touch the fabric.

I always had a very hard time with getting blacks right on the D40, this is exceeding my expectations.

Love getting Spoo trade secrets....and noticed the Nikon D5200 is very reasonable New on EBay! One step down is not so bad!

Depth of field looks fantastic!  I have a hard time with navy blues looking black!  What kind of lighting were you using for those shots?  is it just natural, and do you use the camera flash, or have a shoe mount flash attachment?  Either way, that looks amazing.

The D5200 is a very capable camera also.  I'm glad to see that you're not getting any of the moire effects I was worried about, Spoo.  I think the in-camera jpeg conversion is cleaning them up.  You would probably see them if you shot in NEF format, but I see no good reason to do that.

Snoogz trade secrets are pretty cool as well!

Found the D5300 body for $509 and couldn't resist, since my current Nikkor lenses should be compatible...so will hopefully be pushing listings to the next level soon.

Damn nice, 509$ for the body seems reasonable!  I just use my stock lens on my 5200 for eBay shots...seems to work for all I need.

Thank you! I don't know the exact name, but all of those were shot on the "action" setting - the running man on the wheel, in natural daylight, a cloudy day here in New York. No mods to the aperture or anything made - just right out of the box.

I did appreciate the suggestion on the 5200 - glad I did roll the dice on this one though - but did consider your note in store. No moire so far, fingers crossed.

Glen Plaid Check or Prince of Wales (or both?), I can't seem to clearly distinguish the difference from a google search.

Do you guys do anything special to sell super huge weird sized shoes? I found some 15AAA AE York boots and other than outing the size in the title do you do anything else?

LOL. There's an eBay guide out there that advises, "don't let your buyers think you've touched the merchandise! Wear white gloves if you must!"

Any advice on how to protect myself when shipping internationally from US to Australia? I was going to ship with priority + insurance or express + insurance which I thought was safer. However, there was no signature confirmation option and I read some posts and googled signature confirmation and it seems like there's just no way to get it when you ship internationally even if you go with priority express.

I have shipped from the US to Australia many times using First Class and Priority with no problems.

Anyone have any experience with the D7100? As I understand it, the AF engine is in the body and enables re-use of many older lenses.

Holy crap that is $230 less than Amazon is selling it. That is fell off the back of the truck price, and if they have more than one you should pick up all you can afford. I would probably do a dozen and flip them on eBay for a quick $100 profit each.
