On the Nikon D800 Custom Settings Menu, f2 Multi Selector Center Button, on Playback the center button will present a very large colorful Histogram. Is there another button that can be reassigned to present this large Histogram rather than the small one contained in the Playback Menu Playback display Options? It is slow and somewhat difficult to see the smaller Histogram. and F2 Playback needs to be used for the zoom in medium use.  Thank you. Robert

Hi, I need some advice. I am working mainly in the field of architectural photography and exhibitions documentation. I am currently working with the Nikon D800, the Nikon 24 mm pc-e, the Nikon 16-35 mm and many more Nikon lenses. What I really miss in my work is a wide angle lens that will have the shift possibility. Software corrections are good, but not enough for me. Since Nikon do not produce one and somehow it doesn’t look as if they will, I am pretty much left with the option of the...

I am going to Europe for 11 days and am trying to decide what lenses to take to use with my Nikon D800. I was originally going to take my Tamron Sp 20-40 and Sigma 70-200 2.8. I then had the idea of buying the Nikon 28-300 and taking my Tamron. I was going to do landscapes and street photography. Is their another combination of Nikon lenses I could take\buy? I know this is highly subjective, but I was wondering if I would be better served just taking my Sigma and Tamron.  I would appreciate...

Hi,  Couple of weeks ago I sold my D800 in order to buy the D750. I mainly shoot fashion shows and fashion contests and high iso is very important for me. After reading a lot of posts re the D500, now I am completely undecided (mainly) between the D500 and the D750 due to high fps and high iso capabilities and also the D7200 due to low price.  What do you think is the best choice for me. As lenses, I have the Nikon 24-70 2.8, Nikon 70-200 2.8 and Nikon 50 1.8.

Hi Folks, I have a question for you high megapixel shooters. Have any of you tried to batch convert your 5DS/R files to DNG using the Adobe stand alone converter? If so, have you occasionally run into any problems with a "There was not enough memory" error on some or all of the files in the conversion status window. And could I ask - what OS are you using, and what type of number of files are you converting? I ask the question because in the past I've occasionally seen this error message...

So a few weeks ago, my D800 was dropped, maybe 2 feet to ground, when it was recovered, the top screen & glass were busted. I recently took in the camera to get an estimate on repair, on the initial contact with a repair center, they estimated it would cost $180 to replace the screen and glass. I figured not too bad, when I finally did take it in, they informed me that the top plate needs to be replaced too with a total cost of $465. Not sure if I should get it fixed or just slap some...

1. D800 2. D750 3. D4s I am not a professional but have the above 3 cameras. On the surface, spec wise the D500 seems to be better than the D4s. I know the D4s is more "pro". I seem to be shooting a lot more sports stuff these days. I had even thought to sell the D4s and get 2 D500's and have some change. I have ordered the D500 today and should be here next week. As they say, each camera has its place and it depends on what you shoot but I am interested in everyone's...

I am wrestling with the title question and no one I have talked to can answer it...yet. The Nikon P900 can go to 2000mm optical. But this is not about the P900. The question is really "how far away can a long lens resolve feather/eye detail in a large bird...eagle for example.  Here is my argument..... I believe that a lens must have some optical properties tied to physics that says for example that any lens can resolve small detail only to a limited distance. Beyond that distance the lens or...

It's all in the title. Is it identical? Everything I read about the D750 sounded good and I was actually thinking about ordering until the OLPF hit me in the face.
