I need to replace the focusing screen in my D750. I had the camera sent to Nikon for the flare fix and after it came back I noticed some dust particles in the viewfinder. After a few rounds of unsuccessful cleaning attempts I concluded they were under the focusing screen. I managed to clean them out in the end but in the process I scratched the focusing screen. Asking Nikon about its replacement I got the answer that I need to send the camera in for this. Not sure how much this would cost,...

Hi fellow forum members.   I recently purchased a pristine 2nd hand D3, I was shooting with it for a couple of day and everything was working flawlessly as the previous owner (a friend) had hardly used it.  The camera was still running firmware 1.xx so I upgraded to the latest avaliable 2.xx and I noticed the metering swtich next to the viewfinder stopped working and the camera is now basically stuck in matrix metering (so flipping the switch to sopt or center weighted makes no change to the...

Hi, A customer has a Nikon D3, while it's capable of some decent pictures they often require tweaking, esp. when using jpeg. We need to shoot a big amount of product pictures (denim), we would like to use jpeg mode as there are a lot of images and we would like to upload directly to the database. We've tried many settings with the D3 but colors are not great, pictures look ok but not when compared to the SD1 (which is mine, not the customer's camera) or the actual product. The SD1 seems to be...

Hello, my house just got burglarized and they took my Nikon D3200, I used for reprography (mainly drawings and water paintings). On a budget, what should I get now? I considered the new D3500 or the older D5200, but I also found the Sony a6000 somewhat interesting (this also tells something about the price range). For me it is all about IQ, especially sharpness and detail, as the camera rarely leaves its mount and lightning conditions are always the same. I am also not invested into a...

Hi, I've been shooting concerts for about a one and a half year now and have invested during that periode in better gear. Being on a tight budget I purchased a used D700 a year ago and a used D3 a few months ago. I also purchased Nikon brand 50mm f/1.4, 24-70mm f/2.8 and 70-200mm f/2.8 (VR model 1) lenses. I shoot with the two latter most of the time. Because of the challenging lighting conditions I shoot at high ISO (3200-6400) most of the time. Due to the high ISO setting some photos are...

I was about to send my cameras to Melville for pre-season cleaning and adjustment when I decided to check the shutter count on my D3s out of curiosity.  Somehow my camera managed well over twice the 300K count the shutter is rated for.    I usually only send a camera in when something breaks, but I think I should probably go ahead and have the shutter mechanism replaced rather than continue to tempt fate. My question is this, should I also have the metering mechanism replaced too, or is that...

Hi all! I'm Zack and I live in Stockholm Sweden. I've been lurking here for quite some time and now it was time to create an account for myself, because I need your help! I currently use a Nikon D3, but I'm thinking about upgrading. I use my camera for: - Portraits - Concert photography - Urbex/architecture/allround The D810 looks like the best upgrade for me, because I find the D4(s) too expensive. The D810 has a nice body, it has great image quality and lots and lots of megapixels! And that...

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
