  • I have the YN-622NTX, YN-622N combo and, although I don't use it much, it has worked perfectly. It also has the ability to change the firmware via USB connection. Inexpensive too!!

    I can't believe these comments!!!!!
    I guess you guys don't know that this is a joke.
    You're being punked!!!!

  • Thanks Phil, obviously I missed this reply in the chain. I appreciate the explanation. Looks like lossless is the way to go. Thanks again..................Mel
  • Oy!! I missed Phil's reply! OK, I have a better understanding now. Looks like lossless is the way to go for me. Thanks for the explanation Phil. Thanks to the both of you. Mel
  • OK Brian, thanks again for the input. I'm going to start using regular crop @100% quality since it yields a larger file vs lossless crop. With a D810 / 200-500mm combo I'll assume more pixels is ...

  • I'm saying the same thing in both paragraphs. If the files are already in order or close to it you just rename them. If they are not in order or close to it, you can drag and drop the icons around ...
  • Set up a test folder. Rename (batch rename) the files in the test folder as close as you can to try and get them bunched up together to make the renaming easier. In Fastone you can drag and drop ...
  • If all you're doing is taking jewelry pictures, why not use a 5XXX? You're in a controlled environment, controlled lighting, shutter speed is not an issue. 7XXX and 8XX are, in my opinion, overkill.
