I got a Polaris light meter for flash metering and I have a quick question in regards to the sync speed setting needed. Basically do you enter your camera's max sync speed (so for my D300s would be 250 and my 5D 200)? Or you enter your current shooting shutter speed which of course varies but is always below each respective max sync speed? Thanks in advance

I have had my D610 for about 7 months now and have one problem with it that I do not have with my D300S.  I cannot shoot in Continuous mode (L or H) while using auto focus, but can shoot at maximum speed if I do not use the auto focus feature. I have tried to use different settings with no change in outcome. Is there a way to shoot with maximum speed using auto focus or is this an inherent problem with the D610?

Hello,  I would like a little assistance regarding the Bayonet Mount on my D300s, I am having to replace mine due to corrosion (probably salt water spray) and have seen a few on the Bay from various models ie:- D2x D3 at nearly twice the price of a D200 ring, theres also one in great condition from a an F90X at a fraction of the price but they all look identical, specifically with the auto focus drive shaft hole, spacing of fixing holes.  So, are all these mount rings the same, is it a...

Over the years with the help of our friendly G.A.S. various cameras have passed through my hands. This has resulted in my current gear list including a 5D (original) with the 24-105 f4L and a Nikon D300s with a couple of lenses, 2 flashes, a grip and a remote release. To tell the truth I have no practical problem with my current setup, but I am starting to feel that perhaps it is time to "choose a side" and built a better setup before my D300s loses even more value.  So, in this respect I was...

I am currently using the "legendary" 35mm f1.8G with my D300s for some time now. I cannot say I have a problem per say but since it is my only lens I must admit I find it really limiting sometimes, especially for portrait work. So, I was thinking of selling it for the older Tamron 17-50 f2.8 (non-VC version) which is supposed to be excellent performance-wise. Indeed the speed difference is substantial but for what I mostly shoot which is portraits and travel perhaps I do not necessarily need...

I am no flashing expert but if I understand correctly REAR curtain flash and SLOW sync flash are 2 different things. If so, when I set my D300s on rear curtain flash (only) why does the SLOW also appear on top?

Basically the subject matter says it all. I found a great deal on an excellent SB-24 but I am somehow reluctant because I have read of various incompatibilities of older flashes with newer Nikon bodies. Any chance anyone has used the specific or at least a similar combo?

I have a D300s which can be setup as "Commander" in order to fire a compatible speedlight. I also have an older manual-only Yongnuo YN-465 which i usually fire using an older Yongnuo radio trigger mounted on the camera hotshoe. So, my question is this. If i buy a Yongnuo 560 III which can be used as a "slave", can i use the body to fire both speedlights at the same time? One by using the commander mode of the pop-up and the older manual one with the radio trigger mounted on the hotshoe?

Hi, first of all sorry for my English :)I have a question, what would be better to buy for wedding photoshooting? I have a choice to buy a new Fujifilm X-M1 kit or used Nikon D300s + 50mm 1.8D. I heard, that the high iso on Fuji is very impressive and great, but the autofocus system in AF-C mode is very bad, but the Nikon has poor ISO and gread autofocus system. what do you think?

I am thinking of buying a Lowepro Slingshot 102 AW since I need a small backpack for air travel and is the cheapest option available. I want to fit a D300s with a 70-210 f4 (yes the old one) attached on the main (bottom) compartment and a 5D with 24-105 f4L on the upper (accessories) compartment. Any idea if they fit? Many thanks in advance!
