I have been getting eye ache and fatigue from the tiny VF on my D5300. I thought this was normal. I then picked up an old D300 in a shop and was WOW. With the D5300 (I'm a left eye shooter) I often have to squint my left eye and sometimes even shut my right eye. I have adjusted the diopter. On the D300 it was night and day. Bright, clear, didn't need to squint or close other eye and also didn't need to put it so close to my eye and peer through it! It was so nice and comfortable and easy to...

Hello, I am an amateur photographer (as a hobby) and I have been tasked by my partners for a real estate development to take pictures of samples of kitchen finishes for clients to select from. They will include granite / quartz countertops, various wood grain cabinets (including whites), flooring materials etc. The largest sample is approx. 24" by 30", but could be cut down if need be, the rest are 12" x 18" or 12" x 18" etc. I'm not sure the best way to photograph this. Should I buy some...

Hi all, First post to this forum section, though I often frequent the place to look at your wonderful images. I have an old(ish) Russian Tal-1 Newtonian reflector that gets pulled out once in a Blue Lunar Eclipse. I've never tried attaching my (Nikon D700) camera, but wondering if it's worth a try. Two questions: 1) Is this all I need? : http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1-25in-Telescope-Adapter-Extension-Tube-T-Ring-for-Nikon-DSLR-SLR-Camera-DC619-/152046673162?_trksid=p2141725.m3641.l6368 I know a...

What might be the biggest tradeoffs (versus newer and presumably more advance): focus accuracy; dynamic range; high or low ISO handling; color "trueness."  Thanks.

Hi guys, my old compact camera (a Fuji XF1) broke down and I am looking for a replacement. I want a 1 inch sensor because of the IQ. I would sell my nikon D40 with 18-105 lens to partially pay for it (still have a D700) Which camera should I buy? I'm looking for guys who actually use or used those cameras. It's for taking pictures of the family, travel, landscapes and also for using the HD video. The RX100 is still being sold new for 349€, the M2 for 494€ Your input is appreciated! Kurt

I took my D810 out for my first shoot today to a track and field meeting. I set it up for sports and thought I had everything ok. However even though I used the AF On button I was not getting continuous focussing or tracking. I also had my D700 with me and everything worked perfectly with it. On the D810 I was getting perfect focus when I first pressed the AF On button but the focus did not change as I held the button down. My question is, is there some other setting overriding the Continous...

All, I have a D300 and two MB-D10s (one for the D300 and one for the D700). Neither of the MB-D10s are fully operational on the D300. Both work fine on the D700, so that rules them out.  The problem is the camera doesn't seem to recognize it as far as batteries go. They both work fine as far as controls, meaning I can change settings and activate the shutter. However, the D300 doesn't realize a grip is connected when it comes to battery. It neither reads it as being present when checking...

In the years since I bought the D800 I've felt the results from it were too frequently "soft". I figured this was the result of Fortuna or unrealistic expectations. It's the first camera (in a long line of Nikons) that I've subconsciously avoided using. After a recent shoot that reminded me of why I avoid it, I decided to investigate. I bought the Reikan FoCal Lens Calibration software and began calibrating the D800's Auto Focus Micro Adjustment (AFMA). Every one of my Nikkor lenses required...

In ten days we will be heading for Rajasthan.  There will be several 4-5 hour trips in vehicles w/driver.   I have become reasonably adept at shooting with my D700,70-200 2.8,24-70 2.8  I've done this in Mexico, Turkey, Kashmir and central India.  Speeds range from very slow to approx. 50 mph.  Just pick an appropriate shutter speed and normally around f4 and let the ISO range up to ISO 6400. Anyone else do this and what tips for settings?   Probably be using the 24-70 f4 , 55 1.8 or maybe a...

So first the parameters. Both go used for about the same. Lets assume the 70-300VR is used on both, and lets assume the DOF differences and crop factor are non factors. Lets also assume one is shooting the same FPS. If my sporting subject was within reach for both, IQ differences aside, which would net more keepers? This is really a question of pure AF tracking. AFAIK the D7200 is a bit better in darkness, but how do they do in tracking at equal FPS?    --"It's ok, emails are free man..."-...
