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...

All, I have a D300 and two MB-D10s (one for the D300 and one for the D700). Neither of the MB-D10s are fully operational on the D300. Both work fine on the D700, so that rules them out.  The problem is the camera doesn't seem to recognize it as far as batteries go. They both work fine as far as controls, meaning I can change settings and activate the shutter. However, the D300 doesn't realize a grip is connected when it comes to battery. It neither reads it as being present when checking...

I just ordered my Sony a6000 and I'm curious about other users experiences with after market batteries.   I've had great luck with non-Nikon replacements for my D300 and D600.  The aftermarkets last longer than the originals do.  However, I'd like to know if others have had good/bad experiences and the brand names their referring to.  Also, is it practical to only use the USB connection to charge the battery?  How long does it take vs the plug-in battery charger? Thanks for any advice, j. --\

I have posted my question on the D300 forum but thought I would also ask here... Hello, I have been a D90 user since 2009 which I mostly use with a AF-S DX Nikkor 16-85mm F/3.5 but I also have a great AF-S Micro Nikkor 105mm f/2.8. I was looking to aquire a new D7200 but have now been offered a use D300 with a AF FX Nikkor 50mm 1.8D for 800CA$. The D300 has shot 34K pictures. I know my versatile 16-85mm won't value the D300 so I will have to buy another vesatile lens. I qualify myself as a...
