So I grabbed my Nikon D300s a couple of basic lenses and went on family vacation.  Shot all week long, only occasionally glancing at images on the screen, never at the histogram.  I got home at imported them to lightroom and discovered they all look funny.  Like the WB was off.  A quick check of the camera shows that I had it on Auto.  Shoot some more, same problem.  Another look at the WB shows that while it was on auto, I must have skewed the auto setting clear to the left- blue.  The...

Hello, looking for a bit of help here. I'm using a barcode scanner with my D300s, however am having issues with it consistently scanning correctly. I am using a Symbol LS2208 scanner with it, tethered to the camera. Sometimes I will have no issues, and it will scan each barcode and attach it to the image without fail. However, sometimes, it will scan the number (green light and a confirmation beep) but the scan will not go through to the image (it will have the same barcode number as the scan...

Hello, My pattern has been to upgrade my DSLR every two model changes. I had (still have) a D300, skipped the D300S, bought a D7000, skipped the D7100. So now here is the D7200, which is reputed to be a noticeable upgrade from the D7100. I am trying to balance the improvements of the D7200 over my D7000 with the $1200 price tag of the new camera. So I ask: do you forum members who have made this upgrade feel like your money was well spent? Is there any kind of "Wow!" factor? I ask, partly...

I'll be traveling to Namibia and Botswana later this year, to photograph animals and the sand dunes; I'm guessing I'll need a wide angle and a good zoom. I'd rather have the right equipment, weight not the primary concern-- that said, I only want to take what I'll need. I have a D800 and D300s. I'm a stickler for clarity, and I will want to make some enlarged prints. My best zoom is 80-400 VR, should I rent something with more reach? I'm less inclined to want to deal with TCs. What additional...

Hello I have a fairly new D800E and I am looking to upgrade my lens. I currently have a Nikon 28-200 and a Nikon 300 4.5. I have not been happy, especially with the 28-200 as I seen to be having problems getting a really sharp focus at the 200mm setting. (I was using the D300S) I am semi-pro and sell my photos thru a stock agency. I mostly do travel photography – landscapes and wildlife. I am looking for lens that will be sharp and get the best quality possible. So… I like the idea of a zoom,...

I've been doing a little reading on the 'net about the 105 and 135 DC lenses and have come to believe the only real difference between the lenses is the focal length.  I would love to have them both, the 135 for outdoor and 105 for indoor use; but, I cannot justify the expense of having both.  Because my use is mixed, indoor-outdoor, I have come to the belief that the 105 is my better choice as the 135 might at times require more distance than might be available indoors. Primary intended use...

Hi buddies, My first post here, hope to receive your input! I've been using D300s and Sigma 17-50 for a while and now looking for a good portrait lens at about $500. I've researched quite a bit and come up with 2 final options: Voigt 58 f1.4 and Nikon 85 f1.8g. I understand that the Voigt will give me more indoor/low light capability while the Nikkor is equiped with AF. Regardless of the AF and field of view matter, which one do you think is better in terms of IQ, bokeh, color rendition and...

Hi, I just bought a yn622n-tx with yn622n transceiver to control my Nikon flashes wireless. (I have a Nikon D300S with a SB-800 and a SB-910). On the transmitter, the "BL" icon is always present. When I read the YN622N-TX manual, it indicates that the flashes are in "Balanced fill flash". But it doesn't indicate how to turn it off. Does anybody know hot to deactivate the "BL" and be in regular TTL mode ? On the flashes themselves, the mode is set to TTL (not TTL-BL). I have tried switching...

Hi, I've been looking at the Yongnuo 622N-Tx flash controller to wirelessly control my two SB-800 flashes with my D300S. As I understand the Yongnuo 622N-Tx is put on the camera for transmitting. What do I buy for receiving the signal ? Another Yongnuo 622N-Tx ? or the Yongnuo YN-622N i-TTL Wireless Flash Transceiver ? Or nothing because the flash receive the commands directly ? It is not clear when I go on the Yongnuo web site or the BHPhotovideo web site (where I plan to buy these). Thank...
