Hi, I recently switched from my Nikon D300s to an Olympus E-M10. So far I don't regret the switch. :) So I have the following lenses: 12-42 EZ (kit zoom), Pana/Leica 25mm f1.4 and Pana 45mm f1.8. Now I'm looking for a cheap way to get a bit into macro photography (just to play around, nothing serious). I think my options are:- buy a macro lens ($$$)- buy macro rings (cheap on Ebay)- buy an old lens and an adapter so it fits on M43 Any thoughts, recommendations? Thanks!Jan

Hi Everyone, I have a problem that is driving me slightly insane. I have four Yongnou RF-603N Triggers, two cameras (Nikon D7000 & D300s) and 2 flashes (Nikon SB910 & Yongnou 560EX). I can't get the triggers to fire either of the flashes using any of the 4 triggers on either of the two cameras. When I half press the the shutter, the trigger on the camera seems to connect to the trigger on the flash because the right light on both triggers turns green, like it should do, and when I press the...

I want to buy a new camera, and I don't know if to choose the Nikon D300s or the Nikon D7100. I'm a professional photographer, mostly in the studio (children and families) and also weddings. It looks like the Nikon D300s is more professional but old technology, and the Nikon D7100 is less professional but more current technology. Which one should I choose? Thanks ahead.

I'm relatively new to studio flash, so please excuse anything blatantly obvious. During a shoot with reflectors, I noticed mixed lighting results, some shots under exposed, others normal. This prompted me to shoot into a reflector - expecting to see nothing but flash. However, I see a dark (unlit) reflector surface. Is this a timing problem? If so - how do I synch? If it's not a timing problem, what's up? 2 bodies in use (same results) D90, D300S Flashes are SB700, one fixed, one in remote...

Just curious - what would Pentax experts recommend as a Pentax replacement for my Nikon kit, for use in full time professional wildlife photography for a conservation org (staff). To give an idea of budget (upon sale), I currently use D300s and D7100, wide zoom, fast standard zoom, 105 micro, Sig 120-300 2.8 OS,  Nik 80-400 5.6, Nik 500mm f4, Sig and Nikon teleconverters, half a dozen SB800's. I could add a couple of thousand $ to the proceeds of sale, but preferably no more. Is there a...

I use Adobe Premiere 8 for editing video from my D300s camera. I would appreciate any suggestions for saving the videos. I haven't played with video for 2 years, partly because I'm not happy with the video quality when I'm done. I really don't do much with the video except mostly trim off the ends and sometimes out of the middle. ViewNX has 3 choices, but the problem is that the video looks less sharp after saving: 1. MOV H.264/AAC 2. MOV H.264?Linear PCM 3. MOV Motion JPEG/Linear PCM And of...

Hello. Ready to take a dive into the world of medium format photography and I have a question about focal lengths in order to buy the right lens. On my cropped sensor D300s I know that my 35mm is in fact a 52,5mm in 35mm due to the 1.5 crop factor. Ok, and on a normal full frame D700 a 50mm is a 50mm. But what happens in medium format world? I cannot help having the impression that photos shot with somewhat "long" focal lengths of around 100mm seem somewhat wide in perspective. Of course it...

Hello, happy owner of a D300s. I have a question in regards to the secondary slot usage options available. Well the first 2 are pretty much straightforward, Overflow and Backup, both work as they should. My problem is with the 3rd option, RAW on the primary card (which is the CF) and JPG on the secondary. So, what I understand from the description is that when I choose to shoot in Raw (only) this file will end up in the CF and when I choose to shoot in Jpg (only) then this will be stored...

I recently bought a D7100 as a backup to my D3s. I have been using the D7100 with my 500VR and AF-S 80-400VR. I am however not getting enough sharp photos with the combinations. I was doing much better with the D300s and of course the D3s. I understand that the extra megapixels makes long lens technique more critical, but not to the extent that I am experiencing. Are there any tricks to using the D7100 that I am missing? --http://kennekam.blogspot.com/www.pbase.com/kennekam
