...what is the targeted market audience of the big/heavy 1D or D3-4 series bodies? I mean why does someone pay 6.5k on a D4s instead of 3.2k on a D810, and perhaps throw in a little extra cash for a grip to have the extra vertical shooting convenience? I am struggling to understand what more do they offer to justify choosing them. I guess the "feel" plays an important part, one can assume that a nice/robust/properly weather sealed/well balanced/with many buttons/and switches/fast/head turning...

All, My first post here, and while this one is confusing to me, I am sure one of you will have a perfectly reasonable answer.   I did a camera reset on my D3 and then did a test shooting at S, A & P modes for both Large - Fine JPG and RAW. In the first test I started at P and let the camera pick the exposure. Then I matched exposure (1/800 @ f/6.3) and captured a shutter priority and an A-priority shot. Also, focal length was 95mm on my Nikon 70-200 f/2.8 VR. All JPG shots came out at around...

Hi I do some research on the net to justify my step to a 'good' FF camera and found this... what about the quote on http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/d4s.htm: "If you're not a full time pro, or the price of a new camera matters, then no, you'll do just fine with a used D3. The D4s won't take pictures any different than a D7000, which has the same resolution; the D4s just does it faster. See Is It Worth It for more." Euh...I have a d7000 and look for a FF with very good Iso performance . But I...

I am an advanced amatuer. I shoot mainly high speed sports, and have recently shot two weddings which turned out well and I am seeking more. I do get paid for my work and often print large 20x30. Venue's range from inside to outside with some poor lighting. I am currently shooting with a D7000 and want to make the jump to a FX body and not sure where to go... There is a 13k D3 on CL for sale here for a good price, its in great shape and the original owner seems like a good guy, so i am not...

Hey Everyone, I have been digging around on here the past couple days looking to see if someone had already posed this question.  I am looking for some feedback on recommended upgrades based on my usage.

Reason for upgrading (at least my current thoughts):-More MP (being able to crop in more on shots)-Better ISO performance (more...

I have been shooting portraits for several years, but have never used a Sony DSLR on an assignment. I am about to purchase a used Sony A850, and have a few questions: 1. Is it safe to use older Minolta Maxxum dedicated hotshoe flashes on Sony digital cameras? Or does the voltage warning still apply to Sony DSLRs with Minolta 35mm flashes, too? (For example: Sony A850 with a Minolta 3200i flash . . . Safe or Dangerous?) 2. What firmware updates need to be applied to an older Sony A850 running...

Or do I need to get the $119 D3 battery and its $119 charger? Do just the regular batteries that come with the camera work well enough? I found out the whole kit w/D3 battery, etc. was a total of $513@B&H. (there is another $34 item that fits the D3 battery in the grip too.) Thank you for any first hand advice on this.

Except for the D3~4 series.  And given that 75% of my sports photos are outdoor dusk/night. I'm thinking D7100 but am also considering D610 although it is nearly double the price and with out the crop factor. Reason for asking: I've got a D7000 which performs very well and considering to upgrade. I also have a D800 which is great except for the slow FPS.  However that has taught me to 'get the shot'. --Michaelwww.Qamera.com

The batteries for my D3 are about done. I really hate spending $120 each for new ones, given that Nikon has made them obsolete. I see that Watson makes a knock off. Does anyone have any experience with that brand or any other reputable replacement? Thanks in advance. Rich
