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,...

I need advice on how to get the best print results from “professional” online services (such as ProDPI, Nations, Bay, etc.) or local photofinishers. I’m quite disappointed with the results that I’ve gotten to date, which tend to be quite dull compared with my original electronic files. The background: I’m an experienced photographer, shoot a Nikon D800, and process RAW files in DXO Optics Pro 10 and Lightroom CC on an iMac with a Retina (5K) display, which is color corrected. I understand...

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?
