I have fiddled around with the menu settings on my D800 off and on. I have presently assigned spot metering to "press fn button only" and toggle image area to "fn button + control wheel". As far as I remember this used to work fine, but now pressing the fn button activates the image area selection without touching the wheel. Spot metering cannot be activated unless I turn all wheel options off in the menu. Does anyone recognize this? Ketil

Interested in a camera to mainly shoot food items, however, I would also like if it did video, is easy to use, and can be carried easily for spur of the moment shooting.  It is also helpful if I can use it for general purposes such as family outings, video, portraits, etc.  I was considering the Nikon D800, then the Canon 5D Mark III.  I love the images of the Fuji X100S and its convenience, but the fixed lens maybe too much of a limitation so I am considering the Fuji XT-1.  Do I need to...

I'm trying to find the best HD and possibly 4K camcorder to replace a tape-based HDV camcorder.  I am primarily looking for he best possible 1080P image in a small, autofocus-capable package.  I am interested in the Sony's 4K capabilities but it may a while until I have a 4K display and it certainly will be a while until there are better 4K delivery options. I also own a Nikon D800 but for family and "run and gun" shooting this is not as suitable and I really think a camcorder form-factor...

Is there any reason to choose a Nikon d800 over an A99 for wedding photography?  Or,  any reason why shooting Sony could be a problem as second shooter to a Nikon photog?  I don't know anything about wedding photography, but had a chat this morning with a friend who is just starting up as a Pro and it  has bought this question to mind as he shoots Nikon, whilst I have a '99.

I currently have the SB700 and love the AF-Assist light on that.  Works very well on my D800.  It doesnt appear that just  a good AF-Assist lamp exists (i guess that would reduce flash sales?).  So, does anyone know of a cheap flash that has a good AF lamp on it?  I dont care about the flash power, I only need the AF lamp (ie in a reception where I can control the light off camera).  The flash can be manual only for all I care.  I'd prefer the cross pattern, but then again i've never used a...

Does anyone have the issue with shutter released to take the shot when subject is not in focus on a D800? Here's the camera configuration setting; AF-ON button only to focus Focus mode: AF-S and AF-C Focus Priority selection: Focus (photos can only be taken when the in-focus indicator is displayed) when I point the camera to the subject without press the AF-ON button to focus, obviously the subject is not IN FOCUS, the camera fired the shot on both mode, AF-S and AF-C.  This wouldn't happen...

I am very interested in this lens.  Gets very good reviews. I have heard others say that it cannot be fine tuned on a Nikon body because the camera does not recognize it. Is this true, any one of you have this lens and did fine tune it's focus?? --Samhttp://www.samjsternphotography.comhttp://www.abingtonheadshots.com

When I thought that my final decision had been made, a friend of mine asked me if he could buy my D610 (which will be delivered tomorrow). At the same time, a D800 came up for sale, which I could pick up on Thursday from the hands of the seller. The D800 was bought in March 2012 (so just turned 2 years) and has almost 10 000 counts on the shutter. Would you buy the 2 year old D800 (no more warranty) over a brand new D610 for the same price?

I think I've read somewhere that the D800 will only recognise one Zeiss lens or something. Does this mean that if you use two Zeiss lenses then something isn't recorded in the metadata? Thanks --David
