The problem: Frequent focus on the background instead of the subject when using a brand new D800E with the Nikon 24-70 F2.8 lens. Doesn't happen with the primes in the studio, but with the 24-70 at events it's happening at least half the time. The facts: Brand new camera, old lens. Shot two events recently, both featuring aerial performers on lyra and silks high in the air, one indoor in a dark room with blue lights, one outdoor in mid-day sun and clear skies. AF-S, and one was shot...

My RFN-4s, which i liked recently stopped working. I have vello shutterboss, which is bulky. It just gets in the way while shooting - one has to put it in the pocket while walking/recomposing and then get it out before taking shots. In contrast RFN-4s remote can be hang around the wrist and be used just when needed. So before ordering a RFN-4s, i was wondering if there is anything better available these days. Let me know if you guys have any suggestions. I will use it for landscape...

Typically how long does it take to spot issues with new cameras? I mean when did the oil spots showed up in D600? Or the left focus issue in D800? I am sure Nikon would have learned something about these issues and 810 may not have the same issues - but if there is anything else.... --'If you're gonna shoot, shoot!

hello D810 ownersi have read in this forum all D810 owners are happy with their new cameras, I'm glad to hear that no major issues have surfaced till now, as D800 owner this is encouraging me think seriously for upgrading but i prefer to wait till the raw converters (Lightroom and Photoshop) to produce their stable/final version to see the real potential of the D810 raw files , my only concern now is to know how is the d810 focus performance in magnified live view in low light/night scenes,...

Has the focusing fiasco of the D800/E working with SB-700/900 AF assist illuminator been resolved on the D810?  Could the owners of the D810 share their experience in this matter, please?  Thanks!

Is there around any image comparison tests between the two bodies but using the SAME lens on both ? (eg 50mm on both, or 35mm on both, or 85mm both. etc) --Nickwww.flickr.com/nickdelhanidis/setsmonographix.deviantart.com/gallery

Evening!I have been given an opportunity to buy Perfect Resize at a nice discount and I was wondering whether I should go for it or not. i currently use Lightroom 5 and Photoshop CS6 and I am trying to figure out whether Perfect Resize is something I might need at some point in my career or whether the tools in CS6 are sufficient. I'm an art and fashion photographer, I'm thinking someday maybe a client will ask for a file for say a giant billboard or something. And as far as Art photography...

Hello all. I and a number of other experienced photographers have been plagued with AF issues when pairing the three f/1.4 high end primes with our D800(E) cameras. The issue being a gross unrepeatability of the AF system where even with good AF targets, the camera will focus unreliably with these three lenses, scattering results in front of and (perhaps more commonly) behind the intended point with complete abandon. Not everyone seems to suffer from this, but those that do will know what I...

Hi, I had been reading the forum, and the reviews in dpreviewsince 2008, when I get my first DSLR. Now I want to get a new dslr setup, because I sold all my lenses, and bodies. I want to start to sell stock photos; mostly food photos, and also I will not buy the camera only for stock photography I'll use it in my daily, general shootings too. Also I wan't to the use body for minimum 3-4 years.I'll buy a lightning set(strobes,continous lights). The question is that; I have few choices in my...

Hi all, quick question please. I've just received my brand new D4 body (great price due to the D4s), and am just setting the custom functions up similar to how I use my D800 (which it will partner). One function on the D800 which I use all the time is to set the custom function F1 (Power switch), to display the shooting information on the rear screen, when turning it to the illumination position. This saves me having to move my hands to press the "Info" button, and I like it a lot. I don't...
