  • Replied in D750 vs. D810
    People said the same about about 3mp when 6mp cameras came out. And then 6mp when 8mp came out. And then 8mp when 12mp cameras came out. And then 12mp when 24mp came out. Let me guess, when 48mp ...
  • I would suggest the flash stand and, if necessary, a Joby Gorillapod. Much smaller and lighter than a tripod or traditional lighting stand, and also much more flexible (literally).
  • Without seeing the photos it's very hard to say what made them terrible. ISO 6400 is going to look noisy / grainy, so that's one thing. The built in flash is fine for fill flash, where needed, but ...
  • Personally, I would sell the 18-55 and 55-200 and buy either the 16-85 or the 18-200mm (if you really want / need 200mm, otherwise go with the 16-85). A long time ago I had the 18-55 and 55-200, on ...
  • When you move files from card to device you just introduce the possibility of corruption and confusion. The simples thing is to buy more SD / CF cards. If you do want to have a backup - as in, more ...
  • Replied in Travel lens
    For me: (1) No bag, no camera!, iPhone 5s only. (2) No bag, D800 + 50mm f1.8G only (3) Bag with D800, 28mm + 85mm f1.8G (maybe with Nissin ...

    If you could only take one lens I might even suggest just a 50mm f1.8G. Or if you did want a zoom then the Nikon 24-120mm f4.
  • Replied in Travel lens
    I think that's pretty good advice. My approach to travel photography (well, all photography, really) is entirely based around what I'm prepared to carry around all day. The kit has varied over the ...
  • If the external speedlight you're using has independent controls then the camera compensation is added to the speedlight compensation, so it's cumulative. If, however, the speedlight you're using ...
  • This is amazing. You still don't get it! Maybe you should actually read what I've written, and not what you think I've written. And again you've missed the point! Or, maybe, you're completely ...
  • Replied in M mode
    That's mainly because guidenet doesn't understand that when I shoot in aperture priority I make as many decisions and inputs as shooting in manual, and I have as much control as shooting in ...
  • Replied in M mode
    This is a software setting. On a D800 it's b5 in the Custom Settings: Center weight area (1) 8 mm (2) 12 mm (3) 15 mm (4) 20 mm (5) Average Sets the diameter of the ...
  • That's not the point I was making. There are different cameras, with different capabilities, but all modern cameras basically work in the same way. The metering modes - matrix, centre-weighted, ...
  • Replied in Q.E.D.
    I don't dogmatically adhere to anything. My film cameras only use centre weighted metering, for example. I was making a simple point about how cameras actually work. I do when needed.
  • It's a collection of facts that together form a model that can be used to make predictions. That's what makes it a theory.

    It's about the only choice. There is a Sigma 24-105mm, or the Nikon 28-300mm, but that's only f5.6 on the long end. I'd be tempted by the 28-300mm, and then take a 50mm f1.8G for low light as it's ...
  • I have the 50mm f1.8G and I am very happy with it. Save your money and get that one.
  • To be honest, without an idea of what you're trying to achieve, artistically, it's very hard to advise. From what you've posted you don't have a lot to work with. The venue is not beautiful, it's ...
  • I don't know the answer to that, probably best to try it. I don't think I've said anything is impossible or a "lie". All I've said is there is a world of difference between auto, P and A / S, you ...
  • Depends on how you set the metering. Broader vision of what? You seem to be under the impression I don't know what manual mode is, how it works, how to use it, etc.
