Hi all, I know there’s a ton of threads similar to this one but since every photographer’s needs are a bit different and I don’t quite yet trust my ability to fully apply the available information, I decided to post this question with detailed description of my own requirements. So, straight to the point: I’m going to need a sturdy set of tripod legs, a quality ball head and possibly an L-bracket to get the most out of the stunning IQ of the D800 I’m planning to buy in the near future. I have...

Do any of you use a walk around general purpose lens with the D800/E/810 and what would it be?. Any recommendations? Input is greatly appreciated. TIA

Hello, using my D800 and recently acquired 105mm f/2.8 VR macro lens for some non-macro shooting (focal distance about 5m), I realized that pictures taken at f/2.8 are significantly darker (underexposed) than photos of the same subject-matter taken at smaller apertures. This happened both in matrix and spot metering mode. From f/4 and down the exposure was pretty consistent. I have not noticed similar metering variation with any of my other lenses. Apart from the inconsistent metering, the...

Hi all, I am looking into a switch from a D800 to a X-T1. To try this, I am using this camera with the XF10-24. Which is a great lens by the way. I am a JPG shooter, so not looking into the RAW files yet. When shooting with AdobeRGB I am having a hard time with the shadow information. The way shadows look in Windows/Lightroom are way off (much less information / harder) compared how the shadows look on the screen / viewfinder of the X-T1. When using sRGB they compare very well. I really would...

In Aperture I used to be able to set my import template to increment each new imported image by one. When a new import started the counter remembered the number of the last imported image and started the new import at the next huber in sequence. I can't seem to find anything similar in Lightroom 5. If I use sequence in the import string it always remains at the same number that I started the previous import at. So every time I come to import a new set of images I have to remember to go look...

Hi guys my name is Paul I'm based in South Yorkshire (UK) and have recently got back into shooting landscapes/seascapes and wildlife after a long stint out. I apologise in advance if this subject has been covered before but I am having issues finding two lenses for my work. (wide angle stuff). Either sigma or Nikon lens subject to cost and availability. I have a D300 that uses a 10-20 f3.5 lens and a couple of others but I'm interested in something slightly faster if possible but no more than...

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...

There is a great trick on the D800 which enables me to shoot a bunch of bracketted exposures automatically. I wonder if it works on the D810.... Here's the settings: Essentially you set the C3 – Self Timer to: Delay 2s Shots 2 Interval 0.5s Set the brackets up as you wish. Go into Liveview (to get mirror up) Set to timer release, press the button and go. It shoots the brackets and finishes. I'd love to hear that the D810 does this too. It seems a kind of useful bug in the D800...
