I'm interested in getting a focusing screen for my D600 that's capable of showing the narrow DOF that you get with lenses faster than f/2.8. However, searching the internet reveals very few options, and the one that looks like it might fit (bresson) got pretty bad reviews. Sources like Katzeye and focusingscreen.com don't have screens for the D600/800. Does anyone know if there is any good focusing screen available for the D600? There are also screens available for the D700. Has anyone tried...
I have a Sekonic L-358 and a nikon D3, but when I go to take a (ambient )meter reading and put that reading into my camera it's about 2-2 1/2 stops over exposed. The reflective meter in my camera is pretty close. And pretty much when I take a flash reading too(from the hand held). I've seemed to have tried everything. Anybody have any ideas?--Deerpark243
On the OMD eM5 can the FN1 button used for back focusing.I have just order this camera and trying to get to grps with all functions.On my D3 I only use the back focus button system and 95% spot metering. So this is an auto function in my type of shooting. Sure wan t be my last question
I was sitting fat, dumb and happy over the last 5 years with a D3 and my wife with a D300 (and before that with a D2X and a D200). I have been taking thousands of images as a volunteer for not-for-profit organizations and my wife doing likewise to a lesser extent. The clients profess that they are delighted with the results.Our website is suewinrob.smugmug.com. Many of the images for clients are not visible on our website, because the law forbids showing children without the parents'...
I use pocket wizards (TT5) all the time to control my flashes with very little to complain about. However when I try to control a camera it seems to work one out of five times. I get the same results whether I mount the master TT5 to a camera or press the button myself. The red light (indicating the signal was received) lights up about one of out five tries.If I remove the slave and press the button on the master I will again get almost 100% response between the two units.Any thoughts?More...
In terms of ergonomics/durability/functionality, what makes a camera into a pro body?My thoughts:1. Ruggedness/durability. D3/D3s/D4 qualify, D800/D700 are close, but not quite there.2. Speed. Frame rate as well as shutter lag. I'd call anything above 8fps as qualifying for pro body, but that would rule out D3X, which is a pro body...3. Built in vertical grip? Not sure about this one, since it can be added to any body, but all pro D1/2/3/4 bodies have it.4. Best low light performance. This is...
I need to provide a little background so you can help me. I'm a guy for whom photography is a hobby. I take pictures of birthdays, bugs, pretty flowers, sunsets, etc. My stepson plays (American) football. Taking pictures at his games has turned into a regular pasttime. High school games were always at night and it was always impossible to get a good picture. He's attending a D3 college now and games are early afternoon. The light is SO much better. However, there is an occasional...
