Will do, thanks.

Remember to block off the viewfinder if using auto exposure with
liveview.


I didn't realise I was supposed to be covering the viewfinder. Is that to
stop stray light?


If you are using LiveView light entering through the VF which is not
covered by your eye/face can have an effect on the AE. If you are
shooting all manual it isn't going to matter. Nikon usually includes a
plastic, slide-on cover for the VF on their DSLRs. Otherwise just use a
Post It Note.
