Hi, I am still quite new to SLR photography so forgive me for my ignorance. I have noticed with my D40X that it came with a view finder cap which the manual states should be used when using the remote to prevent light entering the viewfinder and messing up the reading. While I havent had a chance to use this cap, I have been pretty pleased with my photos taken using the remote on Manual settings without a cap. I am just wondering if this is something you guys think i should definatly be using while taking self portraits or has the techonology in cameras made this feature close to not worrying about. Again I am very new to this so feel free to tell me why I should or shouldnt bother with this small device. Any help is appricated. Thanks.
