  • Someone suggested a big lens on a DSLR so you looked like a journalist. I think that might make your camera (and possibly you) an attractive target for those that don't want to be photographed. Unl ...
  • An additional factor to consider is that any Nikon lens made since 1978 will work to its full capabilities on any of the current Nikon full frame bodies. For stable and fixed subjects, such as ...
  • Check with some of the authorized Nikon dealers as they often offer additional warranty terms on factory refurbed Nikons than does Nikon. The most commonly recommended are (in alphabetical order) ...
  • What it boils down to is whether photography should be viewed as an art or as a craft. If you look at photography purely as a craft technical excellence is an important criteria. The problem with ...
  • "Well, why would anyone (and I have seen this numerous times), be bidding on four or five flashes at once. Be bidding on two or three of the same lens or such, at the same time? If you check ...
  • For anyone other than the copyright owner to publish copyrighted work is, in my opinion, unethical. This goes back to the reason for copyright extending past the life of the author which is to ...
  • Jothi, I suggest that your booklet focus on the relationship between aperture, shutter speed, and ISO speed. You can illustrate these by taking pictures of the same subjects varying each of the ...
  • Please be aware that the 35-105 is NOT an AF-S lens.  To autofocus it requires a body with a drive motor. In the Nikon lineup the D7x00 and all of the full frame cameras have drive motors. The 3x00 ...
  • The best way to organize is to use a simple database management system (DBMS) program.  The kind you can download either free of cost or at low cost. Since you probably aren't a database programmer ...
  • My tank is a Nikon D600. I set the mode to either M (Manual) or A (Aperture priority) regardless of which lens I have mounted. I have a mix of manual focus and autofocus lenses and find that when ...
  • I think it is a mistake to call these inexpensive lenses crappy.  The reason Nikon and Canon focus on them at the expense of higher quality lenses is that they are capable of capturing images that ...
  • As a D600 owner I don't feel that the D750 offers enough -- based on my usage -- to make it worthwhile to switch. If I was buying full frame today I would decide between the D610 and the D750 ...
  • Much to my surprise I found out they are still doing business and are still headquartered in Rochester NY. It appears that the only camera related business they are active in is film for motion ...
  • Patrick, If you are on a tight budget and want to go full frame a couple of suggestions. First, see if you can pick up a factory refurbished D600 or D610 or look into buying a used D600 from a ...
  • Stelle, You will probably get many replies recommending many different approaches.  When evaluating them just remember the following rules: 1. At least one copy of anything you want to protect MUST ...
  • I  believe the most significant factor in the growth of the Japanese camera industry -- at the expense of the German camera industry -- was the disparity in factory wages. During the period when ...
  • As to which companies will "still  be standing" when the dust settles I think it depends on whether they are driven by pride or by profit. I don't think anyone will disagree with statement that the ...
  • Regardless of what you decide on at this time I suggest that you start off with one generation old used equipment. First, it can significantly reduce your entry cost. Second, as you get a better ...
  • I prefer to carry my camera with a "walkaround"  lens mounted. I started doing so after I missed a shot while on the way back to the car after a session because of the time it took to: remove lens cap
  • Replied in D7100 Vs D610
    NO! Although you can use DX lenses on an FF body you won't realize the benefits of FF. My point of view is that once you get to an acceptable level of image quality the incremental cost of getting ...
