I have used and enjoyed a D300s for several years.  I hve been going around and around in my head as to whether it make sense to trade up to a D810.  I am a serious amature and shoot a variety of subjects including family, BIF, auto racing, sports, landscape and travel. I generally only post my photos to a Shutterfly account and view them on my computer.  I sometimes print photos (generaly at 11X14) for my walls at home.  I an concerned about two primary issues with the D810. One is the...

I noted in my birds shots sometimes the shot speed decreased something (using CH). I try to isolate the situation in order to simplify the analysis: Setup: AF-C, all NR off, AUTO ISO off, M mode at 1/250 second, CH release, JPEG only. Test1: camera lens towards a bright window and press release for a few seconds Test2: lens cap on the lens and press release for some seconds Results: Test1 shows notably higher speed than Test2 Could someone please explain why the shot frequency is lower at...

Hi, while on vacation in Spain a 'dot' suddenly appeared in my pictures, particularly visible in sky shots. It's in the top right area of the frame in the attached pictures. I've looked at the lens and cleaned it. Done the auto cleaning from the camera menu. Even taken off the lens and looked at the other end and it appears clean. Any ideas? is this a 'hot pixel' or something else? Many thanks for any ideas. Chris See dot in upper right of picture? See dot in upper right of picture?

I always used Kirk L-bracket in my cameras, starting with D100, followed by D200 and D300S. I was strongly biased to consider Kirk also for a possible D810. Kirk considered it was not needed to develop a new L-bracket for the new Nikon released camera and they are marketing the prior L-bracket for D800 as also fitting the new D810. The single review I read in B&H site relating both the L-bracket and D810 looks disagree completely. My question is what L-bracket for D810 (without grip)? Usually...

Hello Everyone, Thank you in advance for reading and replying to this post. I sincerely appreciate your time and knowledge. Please pardon me if this is a repeat question. I tried to browse for the answers but couldn't find it, hence, this lengthy post. So without any further due here is what I am trying to figure outDoes a Nikon 14-24mm f2.8 on a DX body such as Nikon D300s will give me a maximum angle of view greater than the maximum angle of view of an existing Nikon 18-200mm f3.5-5.6 kit...

D300s, manual exposure, 1/1000, f5.6, high speed mode, jpeg's, high speed mode seems to run about advertised speed.  Change jpeg's to raw and the camera seems to run about 2-3 frames per second.  Is this normal? Can't see that write speed would be the issue since the photos are being buffered and it happens with just a few shots taken. Thanks --Rayhttp://www.pbase.com/rayavera

Evening!I have been given an opportunity to buy Perfect Resize at a nice discount and I was wondering whether I should go for it or not. i currently use Lightroom 5 and Photoshop CS6 and I am trying to figure out whether Perfect Resize is something I might need at some point in my career or whether the tools in CS6 are sufficient. I'm an art and fashion photographer, I'm thinking someday maybe a client will ask for a file for say a giant billboard or something. And as far as Art photography...

I would like the 24-70 f2.8 of course but its so damn expensive its just out of budget. Do you think the older 28-70 would be a good choice? Weight wise its like 935 vs 900 grams so the diifference is negligible. Optically they seem to be comparable. I currently shoot a D300s but i am saving up for a used D700 or D610 hopefully soon enough. Do you think its a good idea?

Our team has been shooting a D300s for years and never had an issue with rear focusing. Recently purchased the 7100 {as a back-up for primary, assistant & 2nd photographer} as any issues the 7000 had were supposedly corrected..  Not so - Have now sent back the second body to Nikon.  One image is in focus, the other is not.  50% of the shots are either out of focus or soft. Primary shoots 100,000 + images a year so experience not an issue. Thoughts from anyone who has had the same...
