The day that I can actually go out and buy an X-T1 to supplement my D800 with a lighter and smaller camera for travel on my motorcycle is getting very close (ie next month), however I keep breaking my brains over which lens(es) to get. Get the kit with the 18-55. Cheapest option and by all accounts a great lens. However at 27mm equivalent on the short end is not very wide. My most used lens for my Nikon is the 14-24. Get the kit with the 18-135. Lens is less, optically, than the previous and...

Hey guys, I know normally, you should use manual focus in video mode. But I am currently building my own 3 Axis Handgimbal so I can't autofocus while it is attached to it. So i pressed that http://prntscr.com/6y66fb and that states in the top corner AF-F which should normally mean continous autocus doesnt it? But if i just focus in a small hing 30mm infront of the lens and then i turn around while recording, it doesnt change the focus. Can somebody tell me what i am doing wrong in...

Hey everyone,I'll be travelling to South America (Chile, Peru and Bolivia) in Mid-May for 2.5 weeks with my friend. I'm from Asia so it's kind of a trip of a lifetime for me.I'm having some trouble choosing what lenses to bring as it's hard to balance between quality, safety and weight. We'll be staying in decent hotels (3 stars) throughout but my concern will be during transits and at tourist locations as we will mainly be travelling by bus and train. Also, it's just the two of us (my friend...

I just purchased the Nikon R1C1 close-up speedlight kit. The speedlight is attached to a D800 with a 105mm 2.8 macro lens. I am trying to setup the speedlight into a Close-up mode (the one with a flower icon), but I don't know how, it defaults to Commander flash mode. I read on the manual but doesn't say anything on how to change it. I appreciate any help. Thank you.

I know this is a painful subject when it comes to D800 and landscape photography. I've read a lot about not going over f/8 and in some cases push up to f/11 when the far horizon is a smaller portion of the image. Yet, I did come across some articles that say that f/16 isn't that bad when using a good lens, tripod and some sort of sharpening technique in photoshop, however I didn't find what was that sharpening method applied. Does anyone here use D800 and shoot f/11 and above without...

I've been a loyal and mostly happy Nikon shooter for decades, but am now at wit's end due to inconsistent exposures with shutter priority in D800 and D7000. Usually I shoot in manual exposure mode, but occasionally need shutter priority for fast-moving subjects in variable lighting. On these occasions, I've had consistently inconsistent exposures - not only with the D800, but also D7000.  Even when lighting conditions are steady, roughly 20% of my exposures are substantially off, with over...

If I set the exposure preview off and activate live view while the lens is wide open and change the aperture in live view, what is the visible depth of filed? Is it DOF corresponding to the wide open aperture or the one chosen in live view? In live view, I'd like to focus wide open regardless of selected aperture. I know that this can be done in the D600/610 but I do not know if it is possible in D800/E.

Hi everyone, For me the D610 is missing two functions,1. AF-ON back focus button,this can be solved using the A-EL button, but personally I find my thumb clashes with my face as the button is in a poor position! 2. Is a viewfinder "curtain" like on the d700 and d800, I really enjoy long exposures so a curtain that stops light getting into the viewfinder would be fantastic!! :( I cant see any reason why nikon don't put these very low cost functions on all there cameras, Im sure they could...

Hello guys, I have a big question which I am not really able to answer myself. I searched for it in a lot in Forums but all I found just didn´t helped me out. So I hope you guys could help me in my decision: In 2010 my dad bought an Nikon D300s for him and he asked me every hour why I don´t want to shoot some photos because it´s so great and I will love it, but as stupid as I was I just didn´t believed him but a year later I shoot my first photos and I felt in love with Photography. But...
