  • Expect to pay more for fewer features. Take the Infrared cameras for example - same camera, parts removed, more expensive. Do you really want to remove video if it was more expensive, because ...
  • It seems Nikon changed the way VR works with AF-ON - and improvement over time fortunately. I tested my 70-200 VR II lens on my D800E, the AF-on button on the D800E immediately activates the VR, no ...
  • Perhaps not the birds you had in mind. Another ~50 images shot with the 200-500, all hand-held here: http://www.woosters.com/photography/United%20States/California/Air%20Shows/Sacramento%202015/ind ...
  • I need to provide a small correction, as I've realized the above statement isn't entirely accurate. Some of the 28" TN monitors are also True 10-bit, making them only other 10-bit solution above ...
  • At this point my recommendation would certainly be to get a 4K display, and be sure it's IPS, not TN. So completely avoid any and all 28" 4K monitors, as they are all TN, everything else in 4K is ...
  • I have a Markin's Arca-Swiss tripod head, and I'm wondering what length lens plate I should order for the 200-500, as I assume Nikon wouldn't have done anything so clever as to make the tripod ...
  • Replied in Fantastic
    I seem to find every fault in every product. Nikon have been by far the absolute best provider of warrantee service on any product I've ever returned. Most companies either try to find a way to ...
  • Getting an IPS display should be your top priority. Followed by 8GB memory, then Core i7, then a SSD. For photoshop discrete graphics would be a waste of money, battery life, and weight, unless you ...
  • In the price point you imply, I would simply go to newegg.com filter based on size, resolution, and IPS, and then with that list sort on price and go through the user reviews to remove the ones ...
  • Created discussion thread 4K IPS Monitors - awesome pricing
    I've been amazed at the new prices for 4K monitors. Viewsonic 24" 4K vx2475smhl-4k now for $399 at newegg.com after instant rebate and the Acer 24" 4K k242hqk now for $330 at PCConnection.com. ...
  • The CS240 is absolutely the best monitor you've listed thus far. This is the first, and only, that you've listed that is a genuine 10-bit monitor. It's an incredibly good sign that it provides a ...
  • I posted this in another thread, here's my priorities for monitor buying for photography: 1. Only buy IPS, or IPS class, i.e. IPS, PLS or other technologies claiming 178 degree viewing both ...
  • Of course the answer is "it depends" as there are a few variables. The i7-4790 is not overclockable, the i7-5820 is. So in fact if you overclock it there is a very good chance you can run the 5820 ...
  • Depending upon budget here's what I would say would be my recommended priorities in buying a screen: 1. Only buy IPS, or IPS class, i.e. IPS, PLS or other technologies claiming 178 degree viewing ...
  • Windows 8.1, and Windows 10 both provide very similar scaling capability, and both look beautiful on all the 4K 23.6", 4K 23.8", 4K 27", and 5K 27" monitors I've used. I can't be totally sure but ...
  • This is an excellent set of components. If you plan to overclock the CPU much you'll want to ideally get the Asetek/Intel watercooler radiator - it's super easy to use, and not that expensive. ...
  • Inside or outside? I would say both are too telephoto on a DX for inside, the 85mm obviously being worse. I actually have both lenses you're talking about, the 60 F2.8 is slower at focusing, so ...
  • This is really great, nice work. I'm very interested in what hardware you used. Was all the video shot on the D800? Obviously a drone, did it have a gimball head? Or some kind of stabilized solution? ...
  • Unless you absolutely need the portability get yourself a desktop. For the same cost you'll get vastly more performance going this route. For editing 1080P: You need a 65Watt or 84+ Watt based ...
  • Replied in The 4K Nikon
    Indeed. Panasonic have 3 cameras at $900 all with 4K recording capability. Best of all, some of these even record at bit rates as high as 100Mbps which would make for great footage. Even the ...
