Is there a trick that would allow one to place a copyright symbol into the image comment? It seems obvious that with the camera alone it cannot be done (the © symbol does not appear in the matrix of characters that can be selected), but I'm not having much luck with Camera Control Pro 2, either. Mission impossible?

I just bought the SB800 and popped it on my D300. Never ever used a speedlight before and reset the speedlight, (purchased from craigslist. Like new). I'm sitting in my office taking random photos of an Aleve bottle, just trying to figure out the flash. I had to buy a manual off of e-bay as the manual did not come with the purchase. Not here yet. The D300 menu setting for the flash is manual full power, camera is in manual mode and the Sb800 is in manual mode at 1/4 power, with the flash...

I had my D300 for about two years now which I bought used with roughtly 7,000 clicks. It is at 20,000 clicks now and I never had the sensor wet cleaned or even rocket blowed. I tried the f22 and the blue sky test recently and found only one dust spot which was successfully taken care of by running the in-camera sensor cleaning mode a few times. I have four lenses which I use regularly but I rarely change lenses in the field which is probably why I don't have the dust problem. So I am...

I have decided that for my "serious-ish" travel photography work I will be using a FF body with a 24-XXX (not more than 120) lens and my D300s with a XX-200 in order for a) to find a use for my D300 since I wont get much from selling it and b) I like having the 300mm (equivalent) reach available. So, forgetting about the FF part for a minute, I was ready to buy the Tamron AF 18-200 mm F3.5 - F6.3 Di-II because: 1. Its very cheap, even new 2. The 18-200 is a very convenient range (if I choose...

We will do a 50th anniversary cruise to Alaska in August 2015.  There is a day stop in Ketchikan and I am thinking about planning an outing to Haines for snap shots of the eagles.  This is obviously not a serious photo trip, but I would like to enjoy the birds and do as well as I can to photograph them.  Equipment is my trusty D300 and the Nikkor 70-300. Any advice from you old Haines hands about how to organize the day?  Book a tour, take the ferry? --FrankD300; S1 IS; TX1; C-2100UZ

I am still using a D300 to shoot landscapes, moon and stars as well as family. I am interested in upgrading to a new Nikon.  I understand that maybe a new Nikon is in the works, but I have looked at a D610 full frame and am wondering what anyone on this site would suggest.  I own  14 mm wide angle, a 18-70, and a 70-300 lenses.  I have been told that both the 14 mm and the 70-300 would work with the D610, but not the 18-70.  Any suggestions?

Does anyone know if the RRS L-bracket for the Nikon D800 will work on the D810? --Roy'Live now; always make now the most precious time. Now will never come again' -- Captain Jean-Luc PicardNikon D810 / D300 / D200 / D70 / F4s / F2SB / F

Today, I changed from Nikon D3s to canon 1D Mark IV, and looking forward to trying my first canon shots. I am planning to buy  telephoto lens but a bit undecided about 100-40 or 400mm f5.6. What would you recommend?

On my D300, D800, and D7000, I have always used the Fn button to temporarily change the metering mode (usually from Matrix) to Spot. This way I can use Matrix metering for most shots but quickly change to spot metering when the situation calls for it. Unless I'm missing something, the only way I can change the metering mode on the D7100 is to use the button/dial on the top of the camera. Not only does this force me to take my eye off the viewfinder (since the mode is not indicated in the...
