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.

1. I take a shot with my wonderful D800. 2. I see by the results I should make adjustments with either the front or rear dial. 3. Neither dial will activate any changes in the settings. Both dials are in 'neutral' and do nothing when spun. 4. Until.... I depress the shutter button half way. This allows the dials to work normally. QUESTION: CAN I DEACTIVATE this 'neutral function' and have the dials always active and useful immediately after every shot? I am eternally grateful in advance for...

Hi all - new to the forum and to Fuji.  I'm a long-time Nikon user and still have my trusty D800 but decided recently to try out the Fuji X system after hearing and reading so many good things. I've read the manual but I'm still getting to grips with the camera's functions and capabilities.  I took it out a couple of nights ago for a sunset/sunrise session in London.  I always shoot in RAW only with my Nikon but had the Fuji set to RAW +F as I wanted to see just how good the jpeg files...

I've just noticed that two of the pins in my D800's CF card slot seem to stick up further than the rest.  Looking at it with the back of the camera toward me, it's the top left pin and the lower right pin.  Not having other D800s to look at, I wonder if this is normal. The camera is relatively new with under 1800 clicks and I've inserted a CF card only once, when I bought it just to be sure it worked.

In the years since I bought the D800 I've felt the results from it were too frequently "soft". I figured this was the result of Fortuna or unrealistic expectations. It's the first camera (in a long line of Nikons) that I've subconsciously avoided using. After a recent shoot that reminded me of why I avoid it, I decided to investigate. I bought the Reikan FoCal Lens Calibration software and began calibrating the D800's Auto Focus Micro Adjustment (AFMA). Every one of my Nikkor lenses required...

This is a bit of a weird one. Yesterday, I did a raw photo search in Adobe Bridge 6.2, based on the lens used. I noticed there were a lot of 'No Lens' results. On closer inspection, I discovered that all the photos my D800 has taken since March have no lens model data showing in Bridge. All the other shot data, including focal length, is there. The lens info shows up in Camera Raw 9.5 and the latest ViewNX-i. So Bridge is recently having trouble with the D800 raw format. To confuse matters,...
