Hello everyone! I am stumped on this issue. Please see the 3 sample pictures. I have a Nikon D750 and an Alien Bee B800. I am triggering the AB with my on board D750 Flash set to Commander Mode and "--" Shooting RAW/Manual @1/125 @ F1.4 - ISO 64 (50 mm 1.4 Lens) Alien Bee @ 1/2 Power No Bracketing. No changes at all. These 3 pics were taken one right after another. The issue I am having is inconsistent results when taking the photograph. It looks as if the exposure is changing. My lighting in...

Does anyone know if the EH-5B AC adapter for the 810 has the same plug in end that the discontinued EH-5A had (used with the D300).  It'd save me the expense of getting the newer model if the 5A fits the 810 plus in.  Thanks in advance.

Hi all After the death of my D300 workhorse and issues with my D7000, I am at the stage where I am considering coming over to the dark side. 5 years ago I would have seen it to be blasphemy however with Nikon still not releasing a D300 successor, a camera with professional build quality, I am looking at either the 7d mk2, the original 7d, or perhaps a used full frame 5d mk2. I work as a High school teacher, teaching photography and I do photos for the school newspaper. I sometime do event...

Hi everyone, This is my first post :) Nice to 'meet' you all. I have a Nikon D300, which I love and is still going strong even after getting soaked doing Cave of the Winds in Niagara! Lovely camera. I'm looking to buy a super-telephoto lens - I had been leaning towards the Sigma 50-500mm F4.5-6.3 as I'd read good things about it over the 150-500mm version. However, I've just read a review of the Tamron SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 and now I'm a bit unsure.  My Dad loved Tamron lenses but I had two...

I have a question for a6000 users. I just bought an a6000 with the two kit lenses (16-50 and 55-210). I am very pleased with the first results, but I want to get most of my camera. The manual that was delivered is pretty brief. What a6000 book can you recommend? For my Nikon D300 I have the book by Thom Hogan, and I like his thorough descriptions. So I look for something similar (if available) for the a6000. Regards, Eric.

Good evening, I am in need of suggestions. I have recently been taking pictures of my son's little league baseball team. My question is I would like to have a little more reach in taking action shots.  My equipment is a D300 with a kit lens AF-S Nikkor 18-200mm 3.5-5.6 G ED VR.   Should I use a TC17 or purchase the 80-200mm F2.8?  Do I lose anything if using the TC? Here are some two pictures This was shot at 150mm.  Shot this wanting the stance, but then realize that I wanted more of the...

Greetings, I am in need of help with suggestions as how to take a particular picture with D300 settings. I have volunteered to take pictures of my son's t-ball baseball team and I'm having a blast (finally) using my camera.  I have used both Aperture and Shutter speed taking some great photos.   My next area of taking photos is where I need your help.  I want to be able to take a photo of my son (as well as the other players on the team) while he is taking his swing to hit the ball, but...

I already own several "standard" Lee filters (100mm) including the pricey Big Stopper, sevreral grads and of course the full size filter sytem for my old Nikon D300 but lately I've pretty much replaced it with the Olympus OMD E-M1 and the 12-40 mm f/2.8 lens. I would however love to somehow use my existing filters on this larger lens (by micro 43 standards) without having to buy the Lee Seven5 system and completely dupliicating the filters I already own. Is there some sort of DIY way to...

Hi, I can't use powerex batteries in my grip, will not work. Sometimes it will. But if you turn the camera off and back on , it will not. These same batteries work fine I my D300 grip. All other batteries work OK in the D750 grip. Any one have this problem? Herb

Hi all,I have also posted this in the D300 forum....... I am considering selling my D300 and D700 bodies and picking up a D7200. Reasons are that I also have a D750 and I am looking for more reach but not at the expense of high ISO performance as compared to the D700. Also, I checked out the D7200 at the store and found that the controls are very similar to my D750. This is very handy when shooting functions and having to move very quickly between cameras without having to stop and think...
