Hello! I've never asked a question on here so bear with me. I have found a nikon D3 on craigslist for $1200. He says it needs a sensor cleaning (which is $100 at my local camera shop) but other than that it's very good condition. It has 80,000 shutter actuations. Is this a good deal? I know it's a very nice camera, it almost seems to good to be true. Or is that about right for a camera of that age? Thanks

I have had some success in shooting sports but an having a problem getting matching colors from my Nikon D3 and a D700.  Despite the sensors being essentially the same and setting them to match, I get different color results.  The more I read, the more confused I get.  I don't have time to take hours processing as I shoot 3 or more games a week.  Can I fix this in the camera or is it a post processing function?

Greetings everyone, I have a possible ignorant question. I'm just learning about infrared photography. I'm using a d3 and hoya r72 filter. My question is when I take a custom white balance do Ido it with the filter on or off the lens? also, When I try it with the filter on the camera says no good. If wb is done with the filter on how do I overcome this? Thanks, I'm confused about this. Twainman

Hi, anyone who knows if NikonD3s will function with a WiFI card? Maybe with an adapter for CF? Best from Sweden Björn Bergman - Swedenwww.Photo2be.com

I am a new hire at a newspaper. One of the bodies here is a D3. When I put any lens on the camera, it looks very dark through the viewfinder. If I look right at a light, I can see the light, but it is dark. Any "normally lit" stuff is almost black in the view finder. If I take a picture, it looks the same way on the LCD screen. VERY dark. The lenses work on other bodies we have here. If I take the lens off the camera, and look through the view finder, it looks normal. lots of light coming in....

Hi! I'm an owner of two OM-D E-M1s with battery grips, two E-PM2s and one E-PL5 (it's a matter of another topic why so many cameras). Today I bought a GX7 because I desperately need something to speed up my autofocusing with my 45mm f1.8, 75mm f1.8 and 35-100 f2.8 in dim light. I was just about to buy the Panasonic 42.5mm f1.2 but then I tested it on the GX7 as well as on my E-PL5 and found that the former is a killer in therms of AF speed. I'm used to working with auto ISO in A mode. I set a...

There's a discussion in the Nikon forum regarding the use of FX lenses on DX cameras and one poster contends it's a waste of money to put better glass on D3K/D5K series cameras because they don't have AF fine tuning capabilities and that essentially renders those lenses as "$1,000 paperweights".  I call b.s. on that and I know a lot of amateurs and professionals who have high end zooms and primes on their D5K cameras who, like me, would argue this to the mat. I'd like to tap this forum for...

For $2200 reasonable? Looking on eBay seems about right. Local camera store took one on trade. Cosmetically looks really good. Metering and shutter seem to function well while taking for a test run.  Buffer has been upgraded, still couldn't believe what great condition it was in. Thinking it was a back up and/or studio camera. Was as looking to replace my D700 that died, thinking this would be better. Any known issues?

All: Looks to be in excellent condition.  Strap never used with 2 batteries, charger and all packaging included.  I don't want to over pay or underpay.  Estimates on a reasonable offer to purchase from a friend? I would appreciate any guidance.   Thank you

I understand when there was the D2x and the D300 why the differentiation between "pro" and "non-pro" DX cameras. But since 2010 there have been cameras like the D5200 and D7000 that were far better cameras than these "pro" DX cameras in almost every respect. I had the D2x, D3, D300 and all their predecessors, and now have the D800e and the D7100 cameras. The IQ from the D7100 surpasses all of these DX cameras by a wide margin. It produces images at ISO 3200 that compare well to those from...
