For the same price of D500, a D4 with 5000 clicks is a good choice for BIF or the D500 is better option?. I need the feature of 10fps (Both), D500 153 focus point and highlight priority vs 51pts, 21MP vs 16MP even less with 1.5x crop, DX Semi pro body new tech vs FX pro body older tech. What do you think? I currently own D300, DF and D800 (and 200-500mm lens for BIF) --'Photography is about feel of view, not field of view'I view, I feel, I...

Hi, I am trying to decide which camera body i should buy for shooting concerts. I can have a used D300 or a used D5100 in similar price. which one is better for low light conditions and moving subjects? I have no problem handling each one of them. i just care a lot about quality. Any thoughts? Thanks! P.S.: Of course my next step will be a satisfying lens. f 2.8 if possible

When my daughter was in 4 grade, they had an assignment to choose a famous person and present it as an interactive “Museum”. Instead of choosing a woman celebrity like a dancer, singer or a movie star like most girls of her age would, she chose Ali as a total surprise to everyone!... Visitors had to push a button in order to start the “presentation”. As she had the most popular “show”, people kept pushing the button, and all day long she was boxing the air and chanting some of Ali’s famous...

I was given an Nikon D300 with an AF-S Nikkor 18-200mm 1:3.5-5.6 lens. I work in a café and I want to use my D300 to take photos of the food to use in our menus and on promotional posters. However, I can’t seem to get the whole product in focus. This camera is WAY more advanced than my photography skills so I’d appreciate any advice on what settings to use to get the best results with my close-up shots. Please help!

I have LR 4.4 I use it exclusively to adjust my photos. I stick to RAW capture on my (now old) Nikon D300 and D70s. If I need photoshop I use CS2. But that's very rarely. So my question is have any others done this update, and was it worth it? As you can tell I like to get maximum use from software and hardware! So I don't chase latest and greatest, and was trying to avoid the £9 (approx.) subscription model. Does the perpetual LR6 include the HDR and panorama modules? I could see me using...

I've had a request from a friend. Is the shutter quieter than that of the D7200? I only have a D300 and D700 and I know it's quieter than those but my friend doesn't live nearby so it would be difficult to compare. Anyone have that combo? I'm interested in both the normal single shutter mode, the burst rate mode and quiet burst modes. He is an ornithologist and want to photograph local owls.

Anyone using the first generation 70-200 f/2.8 VR-1 with a D500? I used to own this lens when I had a D200 and a D300 years ago and I really liked it. Thinking about buying a used one now, but wonder how this lens (given it's age) fares with the D500.  I don't need any opinions about version VR-2 of the 70-200/2.8 or the the 70-200 f/4 VR which I already own.  -- Jim F - Prescott, Arizona, USAhttp://jamesfarrell.smugmug.com

Somewhere the info on any camera is suspect. I checked my own camera, a D300, and my last image says it is number 511902720. Yes, 511 million frames? That is 155,000 frames a day for 9 years since I purchased it. Something is definitely wrong here. It seems that an accurate count is pretty much impossible to get. This is reported online when I submitted the image as well as in Photoshop CC. Does anyone know the real answers to shutter actuations ?

I have been getting eye ache and fatigue from the tiny VF on my D5300. I thought this was normal. I then picked up an old D300 in a shop and was WOW. With the D5300 (I'm a left eye shooter) I often have to squint my left eye and sometimes even shut my right eye. I have adjusted the diopter. On the D300 it was night and day. Bright, clear, didn't need to squint or close other eye and also didn't need to put it so close to my eye and peer through it! It was so nice and comfortable and easy to...
