Hi, My son is interested in bird photography.His subjects are birds of all kinds from those in the backyard to those in waterbodies and sanctuaries,both stationary and in flight.Currently he is using FZ100/FZ70 Panasonic bridge cameras but is not entirely satisfied with those. Will an inexpensive body like Nikon D3100/D3300/Canon D700/SL1 and Tamron 150-600 or Sigma 150-500 be satisfactory or, will a prosumer body and 70-300 with 2X tele be a better option? I would appreciate any...

The projected use is telephoto action under artificial light. Primary concern is re subject acquisition & tracking and the QC situation with the Mk III. I never seem to use finished pictures above 2MP resolution and resize downwards for web anyway, so I'm not sure if difference in image quality is relevant. Actually this still could swing towards a rival D700 because it hardly seems to matter if I use 5MP crop mode for reach to arrive at a 2MP picture. That leaves me comparing acquisition &...

Is the blurring in my photo camera shake? Around the right eye is the point of focus. It's not awful, but I want to know what caused it. The photo taken right before this one (only a few seconds or less) is perfect. That photo was taken at the same settings from the same vantage point with Macey (the dog) in the exact same position. I can't find any point in this photo in "focus" so I don't think it's out of focus. Any and all help is greatly appreciated. I love this site and this is my first...

Hello, Long time lurker here, haven't posted in years (hangs head in shame), but I am looking for some advice. I took some headshots last year with a D700. They will be used in a brochure. The same person asked me to take a headshot of a new employee this year, which I did with a D810. The headshot taken with the D810 looks more magenta than the ones taken with the D700. All the images from the D700 and the one taken with the D810 will be used in a new brochure, plus printed to be hung in the...

using: 2 x Bowens Gemini esprit  750 Nikon D700 Problem: After having my lights working great, I took them offsite to use at a gig.  Now back in the studio, they won't sync correctly. The lights will test fire fine, so it's not a bulb or fuse. Neither light will fire using the sync cord. One light will fire using a flash as a trigger, but the other won't even work this way. I'm totally stumped.  Any suggestions? THANKS!

The problem: Frequent focus on the background instead of the subject when using a brand new D800E with the Nikon 24-70 F2.8 lens. Doesn't happen with the primes in the studio, but with the 24-70 at events it's happening at least half the time. The facts: Brand new camera, old lens. Shot two events recently, both featuring aerial performers on lyra and silks high in the air, one indoor in a dark room with blue lights, one outdoor in mid-day sun and clear skies. AF-S, and one was shot...

After much soul searching my D700 plus lenses has gone.   It's gone because  1. It's huge and heavy compared to M432. It doesn't have a swivelling screen3. The tiny GM1 was the first camera I've had to give comparable images (to my eyes). So yesterday I sold the D700 and bought a GH4, in the hope of getting GM1 quality images with D700 controllability.  I didn't do this lightly, it's been my best camera for around five years and I'm going to miss it. My question to other GH4 owners is, there...

Hi all, I'm wondering if anyone has some insights as to the video aspects of the D810.  I'm planning to demote my D700 to backup this Christmas… it's always good to wait for Photokina. Although I've shot video, I really don't have too much experience shooting DSLR video and was wondering how the new D810 users are finding it? Bokeh Monk

It appears I'm on bit of a bad run with my Nikons. I hope I can explain this properly. While shooting an event earlier today, the D700 just started auto focusing all by itself. A bit like I have the AF-on button pressed continuously. I wasn't. I'd switch it off and on and the behaviour just continued. It would lock focus on anything I point at all by itself. Taking the battery out didn't help. Two button reset didn't help either. I'd given up and was taking it back to the car to pick up the...

Evening!I have been given an opportunity to buy Perfect Resize at a nice discount and I was wondering whether I should go for it or not. i currently use Lightroom 5 and Photoshop CS6 and I am trying to figure out whether Perfect Resize is something I might need at some point in my career or whether the tools in CS6 are sufficient. I'm an art and fashion photographer, I'm thinking someday maybe a client will ask for a file for say a giant billboard or something. And as far as Art photography...
