Is anyone using or plan on using a screen protector for the their tilt screen? I'm pretty meticulous about my gear and try to make keep it in good shape. I've kept my screen protector on my D300s and screen in spotless. Being that the D500 has touch screen, I figured it was be a good idea as I don't have the funds to keep buying new gear. I've ordered one from Amazon by a company called FoTotech - Quality Tempered precision optical glass Screen Protector for Nikon D5, D500, D4S LCD with...

I got my D500 yesterday so far everything is looking pretty good. One thing I did notice is that the battery life seems to go pretty fast compared to my D300s. On a full charge, I take a few shots review them on the lcd, check back and it's already at 98% and dropping with minimal use...again compared to what I'm use to getting with the D300s. I used 2 batteries to compare...the one that came with the camera and a new spare. Has anyone else experienced this as well?  How many shot are you...

…. Hello,  I have quite a collection of Ai Ais lenses, some quite exotic and a few AF-S not so exotic, now I switch between systems a lot (3) Micro 4/3rds ,but usually  Sigma Merrills mainly for resolution in landscapes. When I use my Nikons D300s and D7100 I see quite a difference in image quality that I can not get my head round. . . . .  when I use my beloved legacy lenses on the D7100, OK, they are very good but the image quality I get when using the D300s appears so much better, now I...

Hi, My first post here and hope I can help others in the future. I'm a retired professional photographer (thats a relative term, however by retired I mean I now do what I want to not what i have to). I specialized in Landscapes & wildlife. My last Nikon body was a D300S which I thought was and still is a great camera, however the benefits to me with the new D500 are simply overwhelming and I now plan to order one. As a working pro I bought all my gear at a local camera shop for decades,...

I had the locking mechanism fail on one of my tripod legs on the weekend. The leg just collapsed resulting in what Nikon estimates is just over 1000 dollars for repair. The fall tore my 18 - 35 mm lens right off the D610 body.  I`ve had the camera since August 2014. I currently have a D300s and have considered getting a 2nd one instead of getting the D610 repaired. Is it worth the repair cost ? In my current situation a 1000 dollars is big money.

After up-grading my main system to the D800/D7200 combination I kept my old D300/D300S combi for use during holidays for me and my wife. On the D300 we used a Sigma 18-250 OS superzoom, which was not good but okayish for the use. During the last trip the right side of the photos taken with the lens were unacceptably soft. Contacting the Amazon, they said it was a known problem of the lens and that I should return it and get a full refund. So now I am in the market for a new superzoom. As...

Been a long time since I've been on the forum and that was about the D300 and D300s. I now have a question about my D810. I was doing some shots on the coast in Casablanca and then changed back to hipshots when suddenly the ISO went to ISO 22807 and two pictures ended up totally overexposed at f/8 1/320s in Aperture mode.  Wonder if anyone experienced this or knows what might have happened? Some extra info. I was shooting on Auto-ISO outdoors at about 30 minutes before sunset. Light was still...

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 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!
