Hi, guys. I have been a Nikon D300s user but I wanted to see how the Canon's work. I am looking to upgrade, but before I spend big bucks on new equipment, I wanted to be exposed to both brands (at the point, I am beholden to neither side). Anyway, I found a near-mint Mark ii that I have been playing with. It is taking great pictures, but in the manual mode I cannot adjust the f-stop. The On switch is in the L position, but rotating the quick control dial (QCD) does not change the exposure. If...
I have a Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm 2.8GIi ED lens which I totaly enjoy. This lens is mounted on a Nikon D300S - old to some standards. Being an ameteur photographer, I was told that this abovementioned lens does not adapt to a 2 X converter. Then I met another photographer shooting birds with the same lens and told me he uses a converter. I would like to know if a converter is availabile for this lens and which one(s) you recommend.. My wife and I are planning on going to South Africa...
Recently purchased the nikon r1c1 macro flash system and am wondering about the best rechargeable cr123a battery for it. One thing I've read is that you can't use rechargeables that have too high a charged voltage because it will trigger the over voltage protection circuit in the flash. So that said, any recommendations are appreciated. --Primary: Nikon D300s with a plethora of lens options LOL..Daily Carry: Fujifilm X-T1 w / 18-55mM
I'm hoping to get some insight from those here still using the D300s these days, despite the multitude of "newest/fastest/best" cameras coming out these days. I myself currently have a Nex6, but have always enjoyed using Nikons, especially the d300s that i was able to try a few weeks back.. I have big hands so I've never really liked the handling of the nex despite its obvious size convenience in terms of travelling etc. also, I more and more find it irritating that the viewfinder is offset...
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
