Just got my D810 and what a machine.  But none of my CF cards work.  All are certified to work by Nikon in the D810 and I have tried fully formatting them on a PC, in my D300, quick formatting etc nothing at all works.  SD cards work fine in the camera.  A friend who also has a D800 and the exact cards I do and has no issues.  They are Sandisk Extreme III SDCFX cards and on the approved list.  I have seen tons of posts about this issue with other cards but have not seen a fix mentioned...

I currently shoot a D300 and have since it was introduced.  It does however have a major issue for me when using live view.  I have been looking at the D750 (fps equal but better AF) and D810 (slightly better resolution but slower fps) as potential replacements.  It seems Nikon has abandoned DX development completely.  I would like to find out from users of the two new FF cameras mentioned if the live view shortcoming is still there. I tried both in the camera shop the other day and was quite...

Hello, I tried doing a little search on the forums if anyone's used Minolta MD 35-70mm f/3.5 zoom lens with Nikon D300, but I couldn't find anything. So, I thought I'd ask here if anyone has used this setup and how did it turn out to be? How does the lens work with Nikon as the lens flange to film distance differs from Minolta's? I purchased a cheapo adapter with lens and will give it a try. It'd be interesting to hear if people have got the setup working with an adapter. Would there be some...

The D90 has a 'wide zone' option for the centre focus point. It is used 'for moving subjects at the center of the viewfinder'. The D7000 does not have this option. I suppose the D7000 does not need this option any more. But does anyone know why? I am used to use this feature a lot in my D90 for tracking a playing child at the center with good results. An other difference I have noticed is the absence of any index of the selected focus point in the top LCD in the D7000. I can see that there is...

Hi, I read about "HDR" photographing which is High Dynamic Range shooting, taking several shoots of a subject with very large dynamic range (e.g. a landscape a bit before sunset with the sun still visible) with varying exposure as to expose correctly the darker, mid-range and highlighted subjects). The different exposures are then processed together as 1 picture with a far larger dynamic range (a bit like the human eye can handle). Is using "Multiple exposure" in the D300 achieving the...

I am upgrading from my trusty old D40 and have the opportunity to buy a D300 with only 9k on the shutter, but can also get a secondhand D7000 which is a little dearer. Am an older retired photog who takes lots of pics of family, especially grandchilden and enjoys a little landscape etc. Anyon out there who has both or has used both give a little advice please. --Ken K

I decided to sell my D300 with all my DX lenses and a few FX lenses !   I had my D300, since 2008. I am looking, at this time, at the Sony A7 with the Zeiss 35mm f/2.8, to beginning with. However, I am shooting often very wide, I had a Tokina 11-16mm with my D300 ! I would also be also interested in a longer lens or telephoto. For a standard telephoto, would you go with the 24-70mm Zeiss or saving some money and buying the 28-70mm, instead ?   It seems that the 24-70 might be a little better...

Hello everyone,  I purchased this remote a few months ago it has been working perfectly until recently. As soon as I attach it to the camera it starts randomly firing off the shutter straight away, several fires in a row, regardless of setting on remote or mode on camera. I have not changed any settings  at anytime and have replaced the battery but problem persists. thank you in advance for any assistance
