On my Nikon D800, I find settings for user-defined maximum and minimum ISO range, minimum (longest) shutter speed allowed.  It was very easy to find in my Nikon's menu screen without even consulting the manual; but, I can't find this in my OM-D E-M1. Is it there? If so, how do I access it? RTM? I did; but, either I don't know what its called or don't know what search terms to use.  Lots of things in these manuals aren't written for novice users.  I think the writers are sometimes writing them...

Is there a way to transfer images from a Nikon D800/D810 to a PC using firewire instead of USB? I can't use wireless or USB, and need to hook up to a studio computer, and also transfer files from location events.

I was at a local camera store and purchased a used D800 body and I think the auto focus might be broken. I push the shutter and everything works, but it won't focus when I push it halfway down like my other cameras. Is this normal? I realize that the D800 is labeled as a more "professional" body, but I'm not sure if it's for me if it won't auto focus. Any ideas?

I'm just now beginning to understand what Lightroom is, that for a lot of people it is all they need and for a lot of others it meets almost all their needs. Now I need to decide if Lightroom is best for me. The cost of Lightroom (at I think $150) is no obstacle. I prefer to own my programs and I am not going to use "the cloud". In case it matters: I've done no professional work since about 1995 (film) and don't intend to start that again. I like architectural interiors and exteriors, nature,...

I have long wondered why every bubble level in my system (tripod, head, 3-axis level mounted to hotshoe, spherical pano rig, etc.) don't agree, even when using top-quality Manfrotto sticks and ball head). My interest in this arises because I shoot spherical panos where it helps to start out with the camera level.  With none of the levels in agreement I decided to reference the 3-axis level mounted to the hotshoe. Today, while reading David Busch's D800 book, I was reminded of the camera's...

Hi everyone, I recently bought the Nikon D810 and have found that the eyepiece glass for the viewfinder has a bit of movement in it if I press it. I'm not sure whether this is normal for this camera, or if it's faulty in some way. To be clear, basically what is happening is that if I gently press on the viewfinder glass, it depresses like a button would by about 1.5mm. It will then move back into it's original place. It might seem trivial, but with a new and expensive camera, I don't want to...

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...
