I have enjoyed using the Panasonic DMC-GH3 for about 9 months. Love the light weight of the body and great lens. Except for wildlife trips, I have been able to leave the heavy Nikon D800 and D3s gear at home. However, there is one shortfall and that is the ability to capture flying birds. Will the new GH4 be able to properly track flying birds? I would buy the GH4 just for this feature.
I recently bought a D7100 as a backup to my D3s. I have been using the D7100 with my 500VR and AF-S 80-400VR. I am however not getting enough sharp photos with the combinations. I was doing much better with the D300s and of course the D3s. I understand that the extra megapixels makes long lens technique more critical, but not to the extent that I am experiencing. Are there any tricks to using the D7100 that I am missing? --http://kennekam.blogspot.com/www.pbase.com/kennekam
I am planning to get a DX DSLR mostly for birding and occasional video recording. Getting a smaller DSLR to make my backpack lighter compared to a D3s, and also taking advantage of the 1.5x crop factor. I realize that these three cameras have very similar prices and the specs are similar as well especially between the D5300 and D3300 and I heard all three have better buffer than the D7100 and they are all cheaper, so I am considering them over the D7100. I am pointing out the occasional video...
I'm at a crossroads. I love both the D610 and D800 for different reasons. I'm going to pick one up this week. I have owned the D800 and D600 as an early adopter but both displayed issues that I didn't want to handle at the time so I returned them. Now that the D610 fixed the oil splatter issue and not many are complaining about focus issues on the D800 (yes, I had 5 with focus issues in 2011), I'm ready to add one of these bodies to compliment my D3S. I can pick up a refurbished D800 for 2399...
I currently am using an SU800 with 2 SB900 and 2 SB800 I want to ditch the SU800 and buy instead a full pocket wizard TT1 / TT5 kit (a TT1 to put on camera and 4 TT5's for the flashguns) My question is: using SB800s and SB900s how much gain do you get from using the PW's hypersync feature? I have a D600 and a D3S... Which is the fastest shutterspeed I should be able to use while mantaining full (or near-full) power output from the flashes? Thanks in advance.
Hello, I have problem with mz Nikon D3s. It droped down to the ground, with attached 180mm D lens. Since that time D3s is not working with any D lenses. Always show FEE error. Everzthing from outside of camera seems to be OK. AI tab is OK. I heard that could be a problem with electronic in camera. Is it true? Thanks for help.
I've shot a couple of events recently with my Sigma 24-70 on a D700 (and a longer zoom on the D3s). While I think Sigma is a very good lens, it seems a bit lacking in the microcontrast/"punch" factor (yes I can add it in post, but still...). So, I'm considering an update. I've been looking at the 24-70/2.8 Nikkor for a while, but it seems a bit overpriced, especially given it's been around for a good long time. It is also a large lens, and while this is not an issue for some event shooting...
