    Nice! I’ll be printing these out. I agree that beginners really need to start off learning shortcut keys. It really increases productivity a lot.

    All of these cheat charts are great. I was wondering if there is one to rapidly configure the use of flash with pocket wizards and Nikons d700, d300. I get so mixed up with the menus of sb-800 the camera menus- seems it takes me forever to get set up.
    thanks
