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...

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

I plan on purchasing several thousand dollars worth of camera equipment in the near future. To finance the purchase, I have decided to part with my gently used Nikon D3. This camera is in pristine condition with a low shutter count. All of the stores are quoting the same price for the new equipment. The only way to reduce the hit on my pocket is to obtain the best trade in offer. Naturally, the stores want to see the D3 before making a firm offer. Short of mailing it to all the stores, I...

I have the opportunity to trade one of my D3 bodies for a very low shutter count 5D Mark iii - the offer is tempting - how many of you would make that trade ?
