Hi everyone, I´m new at this forum, I hope there´s someone out there that can give me a hand with my problem. I have a Nikon D800 that has been with me for quite a while. I have a work to do that´s very demanding in terms of continuous shooting. My camera seems to have a buffer limit of 12 pics (I can see the r12 message in the viewfinder when I half press the shutter, and it counts down as I take the pictures). The thing is, no matter what I do, there is no way I can increase that number...

I am eyeing a very used (and reasonably priced) D800 where the rubber skin has started coming off at the right front. I had a quote from a Nikon repair centre for replacing the skin altogether which was far too expensive (€335 including VAT) compared to the cost of the camera. As far as I understand it is indeed a complex operation changing it so maybe the cost itself is reasonable (if the design that makes it so complicated and thus costly maybe not). Question: Is is possible to glue the...

There is varying reporting from Nikon sources as to whether the D7200 has group AF. If you still have the camera, could you check and let us know please. --Cheers, BrandonFlickR sitehttp://www.flickr.com/photos/brandon_birder/Flickr D810 & D800 galleryhttp://www.flickr.com/photos/brandon_birder/sets/72157629726734905/Flickr D7100 galleryhttp://www.flickr.com/photos/brandon_birder/sets/72157633409947519/Flickr AFS- 80-400VR...

I've had my D800 for over a year now.  Took a few months to get used to it (coming from an old D80).  The question I have is in Aperature Priority mode, I have to dial EC down to -2.0 to -2.7 (depending on the lense) to get correct exposure.  ISO is usually manually set to whatever I feel is necessary.  Rarely use auto ISO.  Do other D800 users have this problem of dialing down EC or have I mucked up a setting in some bank somewhere? I should note, that it really hasnt bothered me (as I've...

Hi all, In aperture priority mode, I've noticed some strange blinking behavior in the viewfinder that tends to occur in the following, low-light context (to name just one). Initial parameters: aperture priority; auto ISO off; ISO set to 100; aperture set at 3.5 (on a 24-85 VR); auto-ISO min shutter speed (which remains off, I remind) set to AUTO, but biased in the 'slower' direction If I point the camera into a dark(ish) room lit by an incandescent bulb or two, no objections - the D800 will...

Sorry, but I don't get it: Consideringg the pixel density/size the 16MP of a DX camera (X-E1 or a D7000) are nearly identical to the D800s 36MP. So, why are the D8x0s so prone to camera shake? Thanks, Martin

Hi community, this is the first time i post here, wonrderful page! I recently bought a second hand D800 and bought a new sandisk extreme class 10 SD card. I'm still testing the camera and discovering all it's feautures but i ran into a problem yesterday. I was taking photos to my dog and everything was fine, i was able to see the preview of the pictures and everything but then 5 minutes later 90% of those NEF files were somehow corrupted. I mean, i couldn't see them in the camera and i get...

Just got back from a shoot and went to transfer my photos and noticed that my D800 stored the photos in two separate folders. I had formatted the card before the shoot (in camera), and have used the card many times before. Didn't do anything differently this time around as far as setup or the way I was shooting is concerned. Any idea why this might have happened? Could the card be going bad? Anyone think it's something to worry about? Or is it possibly a setting that might have gotten...

Hi, I have been shooting video with D800, I always record my video separately with a PCM recorder. But two months ago I brought a Sony ECM-CG50 shotgun. I didn't start using it until last week, and I realized when I plugged the mic directory into the camera, it gives this horrible hiss in the footage. Then I realized I need a preamp, or a mic with preamp to get better audio. From the online reviews the Rode Videomic Pro really gives clean audio on D800,but I'll end up with two shotgun mic,...

Hi All,Recently purchased a Glidecam HD-2000 and I am having troubles balancing it, I wanted to know if anyone has this type of setup and what type of settings they used to get it all balanced.
