I love panoramas, the longer the better ;-) but I want to know who else out there is addicted to these wide-format shots like I am, and what you shoot on. Although I'm a die-hard for my Nikon D800 I am finding myself use my iPhone 6 for pano shots pretty regularly, it takes great pics and they produce beautifully well when printed too. So here's my question(s): Do you shoot pano's? What do you shoot on? Do you print them?

So i have been playing with cameras for a handful of years now, mostly portraits with occasional action and landscape. I have however always wanted to get into AP, always been fascinated with the moon and stars. DSO are something for later on as i understand it usually requires tracking mounts which im not getting into yet. But for brighter objects, im ready to jump in.  I have a D300 and D800 but will be using neither of those for AP. Im picking up a Panasonic GF7 as it has a good balance of...

I recently rented a Nikon D800 from my university to take with me on vacation. I primarily got it to capture shots of the milky way since we are next to the ocean where there is no light pollution. I have a tripod, but am unsure what settings to use to get the best shot. What should the ISO, white balance etc be at? And how would I change it to those settings? Any and all help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi everyone.....I'm a landscape photographer looking to purchase some new filters for my Nikon d800 and L lenses. My question is does it matter what sequence the filters are attached to the camera { such as a GND with a filter holder attached  in front of  a threaded   polarizer } . I'm thinking about purchasing  the threaded type polarizer and ND  filters and use a filter holder only for GND filters when needed. The polarizers from Lee  and Formatt Hitech are quite pricy  when used with...

Hi all, I've never done any nightclub photography before but will be helping a mate out next week. I will be using a Nikon D800E + Tamron 27-70mm F2.8 + Yongnua 568EX Speelight I have done a bit of research and I believe I'll need to shoot with a shutter speed 1/8 , ISO 400-800 and Flash 1/4 -1/64 in order to get a lot of ambient light and f4 or smaller apertube (5.6 for groups) My question is how do you shoot with 1/8 shutter speed and still get sharp pictures? I have tried at home with a...

I'm shooting RAW with a D800 and am using Photoshop CS6. When I open a NEF in Nikon Capture NX-D, set all values to 0 (like in Picture Control, etc), then select Open With Photoshop, I get one result. When I open the same NEF using Adobe Camera Raw in Photoshop, set all parameters to 0 (no sharpening, no corrections, as-shot WB, etc.) I get a different result. Here's an animated GIF that switches between the two. I'd say the Capture NX-D result is closer to reality, color-wise. I'm curious...

Hello beautiful people! I came across this fantastic technique how phenomenal 8k footage was created by putting together a burst of images. http://nofilmschool.com/2015/03/nikon-d800-8k-4k-raw-video-macgregor-art-sanchez-quicklapse Now, to my understanding, all the images would be processed in Lightroom and then the video would be created. The article states that interpolation technique is used to make up the rest of the frames to make up 25 frames per second. In which Adobe software could I...

Has anyone used the DI-GPS Pro device with a RFN-4s wireless shutter release on a D810 or d800 camera?  Does it work well or is it too much hanging off of the 10 pin connector?  Thanks.

Has anybody here much experience with the DR-5 right-angle viewfinder for achieving critical focus at night?  My current process is to zoom in on the D800 LCD and focus manually but this can often be tricky if when the camera cannot be moved (e.g. low to the ground where I might focus on foreground first, then background).  Is 2X magnification sufficient for this process or should I consider a right-angle LCD finder instead? Thanks!

Although I've a trip to Paris a month away I have been hesitant to buy the Pro 2, as I do any new car or camera, preferring to wait until the "bugs" get worked out. For France I'd be using my X-E2 w/ the 18-55, 12mm, 35 1.4 and 56 1.2.  Not deprived really. I have/had planned to buy the Pro 2 in September. OTOH, reading DPR and other sources has whetted my GAS to new heights. OTOOH, aside from some initial posts about the camera wiping out user custom menu settings from time to time, I have...
