Hi all, A quick(ish) question on how DR changes as a function of ISO. Am thinking of the D800 in particular, but would really appreciate a bit of feedback from folks' technical knowledge of sensor behavior (or what you've noticed from experience!) It's well known that DR decreases with ISO (and non-linearly so). Normally, we tend to talk about this decrease in its totality - x number of stops of DR at ISO 100, x - y stops at ISO 200, etc. So, simply talking about how the total difference...

I have been debating this in my head for the past day or two. Will a technological barrier ever be encountered with regards to sensor resolution on full frame or APS-C cameras? It is a proven fact that sensors with less resolution have larger pixels, and therefore greater dynamic range and low light performance. It is also evident that image sensors have become extremely reliable and adaptable over the past few years. But at what resolution will sensors reach a point that dynamic range and...

Quite some years ago I hear that the S5 Pro is the camera of choice for wedding photographers. After the S5 pro being outdated I see a split of users between Canon and Nikon. Canon users mostly claim that Canon has better skin tone colour, while Nikon users (mostly D800/D810 users) claim the high 36mp sensor gives them an advantage for portrait / wedding photography. These of course are extremely simplified reasons and there are a lot more reasons why one professional would choose one brand...

My Nikon D800 has a thin black line that runs almost across the screen starting on the left side. The black line is also visible when viewing the pictures on my computer. I have tried taking pictures with 2 different lenses, but the black line is still there, so it must be the internal lens of the camera that is causing this black line. Here are some examples of the pictures taken with the camera. http://imgur.com/a/iVRMr#3 How do I get this fixed?

I am an intermediate amateur photographer and have a Nikon D800 with a 28-300 mm 3.5-5.6 VR lens. I am not satisfied with the portraits I am shooting especially with regards to Bokeh.  I probably need to improve my technique or get another lens. If I get another lens I dont want to get one which makes only a small difference over my current lens and also not be so big / bulky that I wont use it at all.   85mm F1.8 or F1.4 appears to be my best bet but are they within the range of my current...

I just bought a second hand Nikon D800 (5700 clicks) and the former owner switched the Shutter Speed and Aperture dials, so the shutter speed is now on the back and vice versa for the aperture. As I also have a different Nikon camera where this is not the case is this quite annoying. I have tried the customise settings menu but could not find it. A hard reset is not possible and the 'soft' reset by pressing the QUAL and +/- button does not solve the problem. Thanks!

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...
