I have read that you can crack the internal frame on the D800 and not know it, what is the symptom of this happening? I was hiking with my camera on its tripod, I slipped on some rocks and fell into the stream as i was falling i managed to turn my body, hold the tripod out and lay it on the bank of the river, I don't know how hard it hit didn't seem to damage it, but i did break my wrist, next thing i knew i was in the water face down. I have had an occasional photo out of focus for no...

I have a Nikon D800, Nikon AF-S Teleconverter TC-17EII 1.7x, and a new Tamron 150-600mm lens. I recently tried to use the teleconverter with my camera/lens but it does not seem to have the same ring fitting (i.e. it doesn't connect to the Tamron lens). Can anyone help me understand why they are not compatible and/or is there another teleconverter that will work with my Nikon D800 and Tamron 160-600mm lens? Thanks, Ranger Rick

I occasionally have need of a second outboard flash when traveling lite and would like to use one of my SB-28's with a PC cable. However, it seems if I set the internal flash to commander for my outboard SB-800 then xsync gets turned off (works fine if internal is set to manual). This even if in commander the internal and groups are all set to manual. Is anyone aware of a solution to this short of buying another flash that will work with CLS? I do have a cybercommander for studio work and...

I want a wide-angle lens with which I can use filters.  This is for a D800E and mostly for landscape photography.  Reviews of the new 20mm are not all in yet, and reviews of the 18-35mm seem okay but not thrilling.  They're comparably priced optics.  Any advice?  Or does everybody have the 14-24mm and jerry-rigged filter holders? --Ken Rockwell advice on the D800: "I use SMALL JPG BASIC." -- "I always use P (Professional) mode."
