So I am trying to set my interval timer to do some multiple exposure work, but the camera is doing some strange things.I go into the menu, hit start now, then I move into the next menu where I set 5" into the 3rd box for 5 second interval between shots, then I move over to the last menu where I put in 001 x 3 = 0003, for a total of 3 shots then I hit "start".The camera very quickly fires off 3 shots rapidly with no interval between the shots, the shutter speed itself also changes, going to 1...

probably easiest solution is get an assistant or intern to hold speed light while I make the picture... but I want to see if another solution exists!  very straight forward (at least I think it is) I would prefer not to use camranger at all- I have looked at phase one capture pilot- but I can't find out if full remote support is available for a D800; I use capture one pro already so it would seem to be a good fit, I've submitted a ticket and they haven't answered- and I can't seem to find a...

I'll be traveling to Namibia and Botswana later this year, to photograph animals and the sand dunes; I'm guessing I'll need a wide angle and a good zoom. I'd rather have the right equipment, weight not the primary concern-- that said, I only want to take what I'll need. I have a D800 and D300s. I'm a stickler for clarity, and I will want to make some enlarged prints. My best zoom is 80-400 VR, should I rent something with more reach? I'm less inclined to want to deal with TCs. What additional...

I am don't understand why wedding photographers "need" dual card slots when in the d700/5dmk2 days no one complained and professionals shot hundreds of weddings successfully... What makes people today (wedding photographers specifically) feel like they must need dual card slots in a camera when everything was fine with a single card before the introduction of the d800/5dmk3 generation.   --South Florida Wedding & Portrait Photographer (www.andrewdophoto.com)ILCE-A7 | ILCE-7M2 | ILCE-7S |...

Some advise please. It is intended to send my D800 + 24/120 f4 for a full service, clean & lens alignment. There are no known faults, & certainly no damage. Recently contacted Nikon Service here in Spain for an estimate. They say they are unable to offer a price until the camera is with them & can be seen. However, the UK has offered an hourly service rate for the same work! So I guess my question is, how do Nikon Service operate in other countries in relation to service charges? Just to have...

Dear All, Recently I noticed that the camera preview and function buttons are not working.  I reset the camera.  Also I upload the new firmware.  Also checked all options on the camera menu.  Rest everything is fine.  Everything is working except these two buttons.  I cant assign any feature to them. Will highly appreciate some help from technical / software professionals or any advice from experienced users.

Hello I have a fairly new D800E and I am looking to upgrade my lens. I currently have a Nikon 28-200 and a Nikon 300 4.5. I have not been happy, especially with the 28-200 as I seen to be having problems getting a really sharp focus at the 200mm setting. (I was using the D300S) I am semi-pro and sell my photos thru a stock agency. I mostly do travel photography – landscapes and wildlife. I am looking for lens that will be sharp and get the best quality possible. So… I like the idea of a zoom,...

I ordered one of these Fotodiox Tough E-mount replacements the other day and just got around to installing it this morning. It seemed to be a fine and simple replacement... until I tried mounting a non-Sony lens! I have at least three adapters which I use to mount non-Sony lenses (I have Nikon, Voigtlander, Canon and Sigma/C/Y mount), but apparently all my adapters are of the same brand (I never noticed this before - they were just all 'cheap') - Fotasy. None of these three adapters fit on...

I bought an all-metal mounting plate for the A7R to replace the plastic-metal OEM part.  Does anyone know if there are any specific instructions on the replacement process?  I suspect it's simply a matter of replacing the 4 screws that hold it on, but I don't want to get started and discover there are unexpected surprises. Thanks,TomNikon D800, D750, Nikon 1 J5Sony a6000, a5100, Alpha 7ROly E-P2IRand Lots-O-Lenses
