If I set the exposure preview off and activate live view while the lens is wide open and change the aperture in live view, what is the visible depth of filed? Is it DOF corresponding to the wide open aperture or the one chosen in live view? In live view, I'd like to focus wide open regardless of selected aperture. I know that this can be done in the D600/610 but I do not know if it is possible in D800/E.

Hi everyone, For me the D610 is missing two functions,1. AF-ON back focus button,this can be solved using the A-EL button, but personally I find my thumb clashes with my face as the button is in a poor position! 2. Is a viewfinder "curtain" like on the d700 and d800, I really enjoy long exposures so a curtain that stops light getting into the viewfinder would be fantastic!! :( I cant see any reason why nikon don't put these very low cost functions on all there cameras, Im sure they could...

Hello guys, I have a big question which I am not really able to answer myself. I searched for it in a lot in Forums but all I found just didn´t helped me out. So I hope you guys could help me in my decision: In 2010 my dad bought an Nikon D300s for him and he asked me every hour why I don´t want to shoot some photos because it´s so great and I will love it, but as stupid as I was I just didn´t believed him but a year later I shoot my first photos and I felt in love with Photography. But...

Hi all, A quick(ish) question on how DR changes as a function of ISO. Am thinking of the D800 in particular, but would really appreciate a bit of feedback from folks' technical knowledge of sensor behavior (or what you've noticed from experience!) It's well known that DR decreases with ISO (and non-linearly so). Normally, we tend to talk about this decrease in its totality - x number of stops of DR at ISO 100, x - y stops at ISO 200, etc. So, simply talking about how the total difference...

I have been debating this in my head for the past day or two. Will a technological barrier ever be encountered with regards to sensor resolution on full frame or APS-C cameras? It is a proven fact that sensors with less resolution have larger pixels, and therefore greater dynamic range and low light performance. It is also evident that image sensors have become extremely reliable and adaptable over the past few years. But at what resolution will sensors reach a point that dynamic range and...

Quite some years ago I hear that the S5 Pro is the camera of choice for wedding photographers. After the S5 pro being outdated I see a split of users between Canon and Nikon. Canon users mostly claim that Canon has better skin tone colour, while Nikon users (mostly D800/D810 users) claim the high 36mp sensor gives them an advantage for portrait / wedding photography. These of course are extremely simplified reasons and there are a lot more reasons why one professional would choose one brand...

My Nikon D800 has a thin black line that runs almost across the screen starting on the left side. The black line is also visible when viewing the pictures on my computer. I have tried taking pictures with 2 different lenses, but the black line is still there, so it must be the internal lens of the camera that is causing this black line. Here are some examples of the pictures taken with the camera. http://imgur.com/a/iVRMr#3 How do I get this fixed?

I am an intermediate amateur photographer and have a Nikon D800 with a 28-300 mm 3.5-5.6 VR lens. I am not satisfied with the portraits I am shooting especially with regards to Bokeh.  I probably need to improve my technique or get another lens. If I get another lens I dont want to get one which makes only a small difference over my current lens and also not be so big / bulky that I wont use it at all.   85mm F1.8 or F1.4 appears to be my best bet but are they within the range of my current...
