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've come to the D600 from a D3 ... where I naturally didn't have a plastic cover for the LCD. The D600 does come with one ... in use, how necessary is it really? We use it for studio/location portrait work, no journalist slamming around or sports shooter tossing things in bag stuff ... --Neil
In your usage of the camera, would you consider using it in a live performance setting for theatre or classical music concerts? Or is the shutter sound still too loud for these venues? I have a D3 which I cant use and three Nikon V1's which I can-but I really dont like going above 400-800 ISO. The V1 is absolutely quiet but the files require a lot of time to post process . Thanks --Jeff Smith
Hello, This is my first post, you can call me Erik! I'm a professional Fashion and Beauty Photographer and have 20 years of experience in the industry shooting with film mostly.

Today working with film is no longer an option and is neither economical nor time saving so I bought myself a Nikon D3 and a D800...
Currently I own an older Nikon D3 + Nikkor 80-200 f2.8D-ED and have shot two games so far. I am sitting center ice 24 rows up so approximately 150ft from the center of the ice. The arena i am shooting at has excellent lighting and able to comfortably shot at iso 800 ~ 1/1000 @ f2.8. Autofocusing speed could be slightly faster but overall i am happy with it - even though i was told that this lens had very slow focusing. I would love to be able to extend my range as 200mm is just not getting me...
