I have started to do more events and weddings recently and will continue to do so. The largest prints I will be making are mainly 15 X 11.5". I just did a wedding a few weeks ago with my 16MP fuji gear and the prints came out simply beautiful. Even several years ago I did my sister's wedding with the nikon D200 and the pictures came out pretty darn decent on print. The funny thing is that on my monitor they don't look very good, but on print they looked very nice. Not as good as the fuji...

I just got my new D750 yesterday, and while playing around and getting familiar with my camera I noticed something strange. With my lens cap on, the slowest shutter speed I get at f4 is around 8-10 seconds at iso100.  Is this the bottom end of my metering capability??  This was done in the dark, and even with dark scenes.  It just won't go any slower.  Tried this with the new 24-120 f4 VR and my older 35-105 f3.5-4.5.  Then I went to my D200 and wow! it doesn't go past 2".  Tried the wife's...

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

My D500 arrives today.  Love my D810 and will keep it as I'm mainly a family/friends/travel photographer.  I don't need the new camera, but feel like a new camera, and look forward to carrying something smaller for travel and for my kids' sporting events.How are you enjoying the files compared to similar D810 ones?  Is the quality similar?  Not looking for validation here, just opinions from those who have a FF camera and also a DX body.  My last DX body was a D200, so I'm in unfamiliar...

My u43 path so far has been E-PM1 (to test if I could deal with u43) -> E-PL5 -> E-M5-II. I just received the E-M5-II a couple of days ago - so far, so good. Prior to u43 I shot with a Nikon D70 and D200 for about 5 years. Before that I shot film, first with an OM-1 and eventually with an OM-4T. I think the picture shows how much the E-M5-II feels like coming home after a long trip. Perhaps that is why I instinctively optimized the function keys for manual focus - f2 MF, f3 peaking, f4...

Hey Guys I am an amateur currently learning photography, I have a D200 and I am keen on learning more about macro (bugs, flowers,etc) and I am trying to work out what would be a good macro lens. I have looked at the Sigma 105mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM Macro for Nikon but not sure if this is over the top for me or is there something else I should be looking at. Appreciate any advice and thoughts. Thank you :) Mez

Ok, I am not an expert photographer and have just been given a D200 to use for my fun photography course that I am doing. However, when I look through the viewfinder the grid/focus area seems to be locked on the left. I if I look at this on the top LCD screen it indicates 'normal' and then shows only on focus circle on the left. I can not find anywhere in the manual how I fix this?  Can anyone shed some light on how I change this to be centre focused. Thank you in advance.

Hello everybody, six weeks ago my photo bag got stolen with all my gear in it. There was a Pentax K5 in it with a 50-135 F2.8 and a 16-50 F2.8 lens. It took me years of saving before being able to get that gear together. Now I can not live without a camera and a friend borrowed me his old Oly E500 in the meanwhile. It's not bad but I need something a bit sturdier. My wife offered me an old Nikon EM with a 50mm lens for Christmas and my best friend also is a Nikon user. I already toyed at the...

Hi there all, I'm a beginner in professional event photography. I have questions on how images captured from the camera could be  transferred over the wifi to a file server located 50 - 100 meters from capture point. I have however seen this possible with a Nikon D200 but  this model being discontinued of production, i have to look for alternative cameras to carry out this process. My requirements are: I capture the images of corporate event guests at the entrance of the building and these...

Experienced beginner here: Nikon D200 with 24-120 zoom 1:3.5 VR: very puzzled why flash shots indoors have serious reddish tint. I'm using the "flash" WB setting.Requires a lot of editing. Any ideas? Many thanks Dave
