Ladies and gentlemen, the wait is over and it seems like Nikon has nailed it.
The D300s was released back in 2009 and ever since then people have been anxiously looking forward to a real upgrade from the dated D300.

Back in the days, when we were still capturing images on sheets of plastic, ISO (also known as ASA) was not a button on the back of a camera. It was a chemical property of the film. Some cameras could read the encoding on the film can and set the ISO accordingly. But sometimes you wanted to get more out of a film – to set it to a higher (or lower) ISO. This process is called pushing/puling the film, and if the camera you had could only do auto ISO decoding, you had to hack the film.
