Hi, I'm interested in suggestions on accessories to add to my photo bag (AKA "bag of tricks"); so I ask everyone which is the unusual or less obvious accessory they have. I now turn to this forum and ask the same question. I, for one, would answer: condoms to put on my tripod's legs so they can go in mud, dirt or shallow water and come out as clean as when I left home. If pressed for another item, I'd mention the BS-2 Nikon accessory shoe cover (spare part for D3 and D4 bodies) which is...
Hi there, I have an old D350 with kit lenses (never got past the beginner capability level till now) and especially at low light it doesn't take very good pictures (dim colors and obviously, no way without a tripod). And here I am not talking night, room light already is a big problem. Many people keep telling me the kit lens on the D350 really sucked and that newer one could help me improve my pictures here. Is that true? What makes the D350 kit lens so bad and would newer one help? If so,...
I've been trying to get answers from Nikon support. The responses I get are the support persons' best efforts, but it's never enough. I keep having to ask more because the answers are very narrow and a little vague. Now that their Website is temporarily being fixed, I can't even log on to my account to ask for more help. I use a D3 among other Nikons. Lately the D3 is missing some shots, (missing=the image file is corrupted and won't open ~10 out of 100 shots). One support person thought...
I have been reading these forums for a long time and recently decided to register and start to participate since I got a d800 on Friday and I was sure that I was going to have a few questions about it. Firstly I have to say I was quite intimidated by all the negative posts I have been reading for 1 year (green tint, focus errors,etc...). Since I do mostly landscape I wasn't too afraid about the famous left-focus point error but much encouraged by the high pixel count and DR. Now that I got it...
I am considering purchasing used D3. Where do you go looking for such gear and what to look for, other than shutter actuations? Known sources, no particular order: Roberts keh.com (I learned yesterday they do not provide shutter actuations) Mid West Camera Exchange Columbus Camera Group eBay craigslist I am sure there a lot more places to go check, any more suggestions?

Can anyone help me decide whether to wait until the Windows version of CamRanger is released or should I buy a INTEL BOXDC3217BY Mini PC now. I have a setup as follows; Nikon D3 and a Nikon D800, a Dell T5500 Desktop PC with 11GB ram X5550 2.67 Xeon processor and a 3008 Dell monitor. Both the Desktop PC and the laptop have a Windows 7 Ultimate OS. 64 bit on the Desktop PC and 32 bit on the laptop. I use the pre installed Windows Remote Access to link the Desktop PC with the laptop. I...
Hi. I have bought an EM5 as a portable alternative to my Nikon D3 and I am liking it. However, I'm struggling to understand the intricacies of how different function options work and conflict. As an example, I have downloaded what I think is the full instruction booklet from the Olympus website, but the information displayed in my viewfinder bears very little relationship to what is shown on page 30 of the booklet and described as 'Viewfinder information'. What I see in the viewfinder is...
Hi! I think it was about a year ago. Somebody posted his incredibly good holiday photos, which impressed me greatly. I did not write down the name of the photographer or save any other pointers. Can somebody help me locating this photo gallery? (might not have been this forum, but it was definitely dpreview, or at least a link to a gallery was posted on dpreview). I want to study these photos once more, for composition, exposure and postprocessing. I am pretty sure it was a professional...
