  • Yes, I would post process your images.  Or, at least delete the 'bad' ones.  If an image is good, but the color can't be corrected...turn it not b&w.

    Just found out they are out of business.  Purchased their screen for my D80 back in 2009.  Needed to get more accurate focus with my 50mm f1.4 lens, after the auto focus died.  The main problem ...
  • Ideally, the focusing method should have less depth of field than the lens.  That only happens with long base rangefinder cameras.  When you stop down the SLR lens, the split image screen darkens. ...
  • Thanks for all our comments.  I ordered it today.
  • Created discussions Reconditioned D610?
    Has anyone purchased reconditioned Nikon D camera from Nikon? They are offering the D610 for $1,079 plus tax.  This is a $400 saving off the regular price after rebate.  Should I have second thoughts?

  • Found I needed a fast medium tele for inside use.  Could not get close enough with my 50mm f1.8D.  What surprised was how much better the 85mm f1.8G was.  Most of my shooting is between 1.8 and 2.2

    I have an old 35-70mm f2.8 Nikkor.  Stopped using it because of flare, caused by discoloration of elements.  I can still take photos, but need to do a great deal of post processing. Was thinking ...
