Ok ... Ok ... I know its initially a bizarre sounding question, but the D500 has piqued my interest as I still have a number of nice DX lenses that I could use on a good body. One thing that I was just mulling over though is this - when the D700 hit the scene and a number of pros started using them, one thing that did seem to come to light after a while was that shooters who use a camera mounted flash started to have more issues with the D700 than the D3 type bodies, and IIRC, it was...

Custom menu setting d3 issue - something I've noticed in going thru the menus today troubles me a bit. Maybe I'm missing something. If you select "show ISO" instead of "show frame count" there is no way to know how much memory space you have left on the card you've selected for storing your images. My D750 and D7200 are set for "easy ISO" which shows the ISO setting for the exposure in the viewfinder when shooting, but the frames remaining (i.e., space available on the memory card) is still...

It was recommended that the lithium battery needs to be discharge every now and then. How do you discharge a D8x0 battery? I have the OEM charger. But unlike that with the D3, there is no discharge facility there.

Help guys! I have this weird problem with my Tamron 24-70 2.8 VC on my D7100. The aperture closes just a tiny little bit at 3.2 if switching from 2.8. BUT, it closes perfectly if switching from 3.5 to 3.2. I'm aware of the stucked aperture blades on some of Tamron 24-70s. But i believe that mine does not exhibit that issue because it closes perfectly if from 3.5. I can confirm this with DoF preview. It closes perfectly at 3.5, and 3.2 (if from 3.5) and the next time i pressed the doF preview,...

Hi all you specialists! I am selling my Canon D350 and all its belongings: Tokina 12-24 f4; Sigma 24-70 f2.;Canon 50mm f1.8; Canon 70-300 f4-5.6 is usm; Canon Flashlite 430EX II. All the glass and stuff are too heavy nowadays. I will be backpacking though India soon and I prefer to travel light. I know I might loose some quality sometime/somewhere, but that's OK. I am not taking any shots now as all gear is nicely stored in a cupboard. I focus on mirrorless 4/3 and it ain't easy to make my...

Good day to you all, trying to make up my mind for the next camera, I ask for your valuable opinion. The past: D100, D2h, D2x, D3, D4. Wildlife only, but recently also people, mainly ethnic minorities; I use my gear only when I travel, a new house project has postponed my next trip to March 2017. I just sold the AF-S 500mm f/4D IF-ED II, it was 10 years old, time to replace it, and two D4’s, better decision then keep them inside a Dry Cabinet for the next 18 months. I was considering the D5...

Sometime in the coming year I plan a trip to Tanzania to photograph wildlife. My present equipment I think is Ok for this trip however I probably could use more reach.  What I plan to bring along is my rugged D3 with the following lenses:  28mm f/1.8 , 24-120mm VR,  70-200mm VR11,  AFS 80-400mm VR11. My questions is whether I should purchase a new or used DX camera such as the D7100 or 7200 which will give me 600mm on my AFS 80-400 or spend the extra $$ and purchase a D810. The technical...

I have the Auto ISO on and the max. ISO to MAX, and the shutter speed to Auto. I normally shoot Aperture preferred. I believe, in my D3 (which didn't have the Auto shutter speed function, just the min. shutter speed). it would maximize the shutter speed before bumping the ISO up. In my D800, the shutter speed doesn't seem to go down to the max. tolerable speed before it bumps up the ISO. In the following 1st picture (shot with the 35-70mm f/2.8D), the focal length was 58mm and I set the...

Hi all, Reaching out to all those of you how have mated the 35mm AF-D (f/2) to the current gen of FX cameras (D6XX, D7XX, D8XX, D3(x), D4(x)) Would be curious to know how easy you find it to focus this lens manually. I have a heck of time using my 24mm f/2.8 AI for people pictures, so was wondering how much of a difference the 11mm 'step up' makes. I do realize this lens will AF without trouble...but considering there's no manual override when the lens is in AF mode, I suppose what I'm...
