I just tried to tether a D300 to a MBP w/ C1 Pro 9, and got zero.  Can anyone suggest connection cables, other than USB, for this purpose?  Micro USB would be fine IF it were WELDED into place on the Nikon.... but it isn't.  Help, please!  :o)))

I am just curious but not to concerned as to when a d760 (or whatever it is to be called) is due. Does anyone have any inside knowledge or good prediction for it ? I know there was what something like a 6 year gap with the D700 till the D750 ( 6 years D300-D400 ). So would that mean it be about the same with the next replacement ? or are nikon pumping out all new body,s in 2016 ?

Hi, We have a D300 camera, bought in 2008 or 2009. We are not very good photographers really. The camera feels a bit too big and heavy for us, and in all honesty also too complicated. Thus, we are looking for a replacement, and I wonder if that might be the 5500 or if there is a better alternative for us. We mostly use the D300 for taking images of our cats, indoors. This means that we have problems with low light, so that is a crucial aspect. We have been very pleased with the image quality...

Hi, I just checked the specs of the new D500. Sounds all good but I have one question. If I would be a pro and I want a really sound AF system shouldn't it cover as much as possible of the view finder area? I now that more than 150 AF points sounds great but what about their positioning? As it seems know Nikon has put them quite densely together. If you compare to the D300 or 7DII it seems as if the coverage has become smaller (meaning less area of the picture is covered by AF).  I did a...

Consider for a moment that the Nikon D300S was discontinued in January 2012 and there's only one "Canon 7D / 10D-70D Talk" subforum? The D300S was itself a 2009 update of the 2007 vintage D300, and many would argue that the Pro DX range was commercially superseded with the introduction of the D7000 back in 2010. After this many years of market inactivity, does this segment truly require it's own subforum? Why not just one DX SLR subforum?

We're all familiar with dynamic range discussions but along with dynamic range DXO measures tonal range as well. DXO defines tonal range as: Tonal range is the effective number of distinguishable gray levels a camera can produce. The top camera Sony A7RII has five levels of tonal range: Whilst most others range from two to three levels of tonal range, for example Nikon D300: My question is, what is the main difference between dynamic range and tonal range? And secondly, the zone system...

like many on here I am a D200/300 owner who has now given up on the idea of ever seeing the mythical 'D400'. I am keen to upgrade to the latest sensor tech and superior high ISO performance (I ŵhave no interest in video). I handled the D7200 today and concluded that it felt as solid as my D200/300 and I found myself liking the body format. I am sorely tempted to go for it but before I do, I would like to get an idea of how many stops in high ISO performance I am likely to gain over the D300,...

Hi all, I was shooting this weekend with two D300 with grips, each setup on a 1 second intevelometer. Both had third party grips, both had an en-el3e battery in the camera and one in the grip. Both were setup in the menu to use the battery in the grip first. One camera operated perfectly, where it exhausted the battery in the grip and then switched to the battery in the camera and never stopped shooting. The second camera however, although setup the same way, stopped shooting after exhausting...
