Hey guys, in a couple weeks I will be shooting a sweet 16 for my friends daughter. I am a beginner photographer and never had any experience shooting any type of parties or weddings. My base photography is of cars and I have done some portrait photography twice for a friend. My friend knows all this as I have know him way before I got into photography but he has seen my work in the car world as he is a car guy and he asked me to photograph for him. So he knows Im no professional photographer...

Hi all, I already owned some primes ao a 35mm 1.8G. This lens functions properly on my D300s. Since a few days I am testing a new D7200 and this 35mm autofocusses real slow. After pointing from close to something in a far distance, it seems a few seconds before it's sharp... This lens is fast enough on my D300s. And other lenses, especially my 17-55mm are real fast on the D7200. Does this sounds familiar to anyone? -- Nikon D7200 Nikon D300sNikon F2Mamiya C330

Hi All, I have not purchased a camera body since my D300s in 2007, heard the news about D500 and decide to upgrade. I don't want to order it sight unseen, I want to be able to walk into B&H and play with it first. I expect that these will be sold out for at least a little while after release. How long in your experience, do you have to wait until Nikon cameras of this price range become permanently in stock for major stores? Thanks in advance!

Hi all, does anyone know the progression of the f/ value from 16 to 80 mm? In other words, until what focal lenght I can have an aperture most similar to 2,8? I'm thinking about a change from my 17-55 nikkor to take this new lens and would like to know what I'll find Another question is about the E shutter, that I've understood that means that the lens can't be used on all the nikon DSLR bodies. I've a D300s that seems not affected from this. Can someone explain me how this new shutter...

Consider for a moment that the Nikon D300S was discontinued in January 2012 and there's only one "Canon 7D / 10D-70D Talk" subforum? The D300S was itself a 2009 update of the 2007 vintage D300, and many would argue that the Pro DX range was commercially superseded with the introduction of the D7000 back in 2010. After this many years of market inactivity, does this segment truly require it's own subforum? Why not just one DX SLR subforum?

Hi guys, Whilst typically I would use my full frame bodies for most of my photography, I often use the D7200 for reach. I sold off all my DX lenses some years ago when investing in FX, so only use my telephotos on the D7200. I am considering getting one "standard" lens for the camera, and when I had a Nikon D200 and D300s, my then copy of the 17-55 F2.8 DX AF-S was simply stunning. I've seen the price drop on these considerably in recent times as people no doubt offload them in their switch...

I ask for forgiveness in advance if this is a topic already beaten to death in this forum.... I'm primarily an FX and CX user, and rarely visit this Forum. A recent post on the Nikon Rumors website reports a lens patent for a mirrorless APS-C format - and it occurs to me that a good platform for Nikon's first implementation of mirrorless in an SLR-class body (i.e., DX and FX) might be the DX format.  Nikon seems to be fairly conservative in terms of design, and would likely not be willing to...

I hope i have posted this in the correct section... I am in the process of preparing various shots for a self-publish project (Blurb). According to the instructions provided i need to convert each shot to the ''Blurb_bla_bla.icc'' profile to make it a CMYK and save it as an 8-bit JPEG. OK, so far so good. Only problem is though that the output files are huge by my JPEG standards! I mean having 35MB/file from my 12MP Nikon D300s is way too much! I have prepared 30 shots and i am close to 1GB...

I have a pair of Nikon macro flash's that require the CR123A batteries.  I bought a Tenergy rechargeable CR123A's in January and they've already stopped taking a charge.  Not entirely sure if it's the charger or the battery as the charger shows a green LED (meaning the battery is charged) with dead batteries inserted.Any suggestions for a different battery and charger setup? TIA! Ray --Primary: Nikon D300s with a plethora of lens options LOL..Daily Carry: Fujifilm X-T1 w / 18-55mM

At least IMO so apologies in advance if anyone feels dissapointed after reading on. I have a D300s and i plan on taking it with me on a trip to Northern Europe in a few days. Its not the North Pole but its an expensive destination so i believe you could say that i will be a once in a lifetime trip (at least) at that destination. At first, i had decided to borrow from a colleague the 17-55 f2.8 DX to have with me as a general walk-around lens along with an older 70-210 f4 for any tele-shots...
