Where do I find the frame count on my D300?

I have LR 4.4 I use it exclusively to adjust my photos. I stick to RAW capture on my (now old) Nikon D300 and D70s. If I need photoshop I use CS2. But that's very rarely. So my question is have any others done this update, and was it worth it? As you can tell I like to get maximum use from software and hardware! So I don't chase latest and greatest, and was trying to avoid the £9 (approx.) subscription model. Does the perpetual LR6 include the HDR and panorama modules? I could see me using...

I've had a request from a friend. Is the shutter quieter than that of the D7200? I only have a D300 and D700 and I know it's quieter than those but my friend doesn't live nearby so it would be difficult to compare. Anyone have that combo? I'm interested in both the normal single shutter mode, the burst rate mode and quiet burst modes. He is an ornithologist and want to photograph local owls.

Anyone using the first generation 70-200 f/2.8 VR-1 with a D500? I used to own this lens when I had a D200 and a D300 years ago and I really liked it. Thinking about buying a used one now, but wonder how this lens (given it's age) fares with the D500.  I don't need any opinions about version VR-2 of the 70-200/2.8 or the the 70-200 f/4 VR which I already own.  -- Jim F - Prescott, Arizona, USAhttp://jamesfarrell.smugmug.com

Somewhere the info on any camera is suspect. I checked my own camera, a D300, and my last image says it is number 511902720. Yes, 511 million frames? That is 155,000 frames a day for 9 years since I purchased it. Something is definitely wrong here. It seems that an accurate count is pretty much impossible to get. This is reported online when I submitted the image as well as in Photoshop CC. Does anyone know the real answers to shutter actuations ?

I have been getting eye ache and fatigue from the tiny VF on my D5300. I thought this was normal. I then picked up an old D300 in a shop and was WOW. With the D5300 (I'm a left eye shooter) I often have to squint my left eye and sometimes even shut my right eye. I have adjusted the diopter. On the D300 it was night and day. Bright, clear, didn't need to squint or close other eye and also didn't need to put it so close to my eye and peer through it! It was so nice and comfortable and easy to...

Hey everyone, I have a Canon EOS Digital Rebel D300 (or DS6041) that I've been using to shoot long-exposure shots of the stars. My exposure times are quite long, usually about 1 hour and sometimes longer. These super long exposure times take quite a toll on the DS6041's decade-old sensor; all my images end up overrun with tons of hot pixels. So I am looking to upgrade to a much newer DSLR, and I'm wondering if there is any specific model out there that excels at taking super long exposure...

This weekend I found out that I'm not as young as I used to be. Carrying a D300 with sigma 150-500 on a standard neck strap for any length of time isn't for me any more. There's a zillion different camera straps on the market at the moment. Is there something people can recommend? I'm not too keen on the sun-sniper models, too afraid I'll bump into something when it's hanging on my hip. --Don't wait for the Nikon D-whatever, have fun...

Anybody try a Nikon D3s & bowen/calumet 750r Travelites with pocketwizard hypersync feature? I dare not go out and buy MiniTT1 or FlexTT5 unit without having an idea what results I'd be getting if any with my existing lights. I've seen stuff on the pocketwizard website, but the tests were made with paul c buff lights, nothing with bowen. Just hoping someone has had experience with the monolights I've got. Thanks. --There's not 2 but 3 sides to every story. Theirs, yours, and what really...
