Took a while for me to figure out.
How do I determine if I have the latest software/firmware for my D300? If I do not, how do I go about upgrading? Thank You
What temperature range can the D300 shoot in? Are there special provisions that should be given for shooting in cold weather?
Note that the cord included with the Nikon charger or A/C adapter is designed for 110 volt use only. A power cord suitable for the local power system should be obtained on arrival, most airport shops and computer suppliers will carry these items which are typically used for laptop conmputer power supply connections. Be sure that the new cord you buy fits the Nikon adapter you wish to use it with and that it is rated for the voltage in your new location. While not recommended, a simple plug adapter may be used, but caution should be taken as the cord Nikon supplies is not rated for the higher voltage and may heat or fail.
