hi guys, i encountered a strange d750 behavior when i use the left or right most focus point to focus an object in Optical Viewfinder, after taking the photo when i enable the focus point showing in display menu, it always showing slightly more to the left or to the right (depend on which focus point i'm used), it was not the exact spot i pointed in the photo, slightly off.  I programmed my OK to zoom in the photo area 200%, it always show the position slight off. I used to own d800, never...

What is the difference between these two adapters?  Obviously the LA-EA4 is bulkier than the LA-EA3, but other than that what can the -4 do that the -3 can't? Thanks,TomNikon D800, D750, Nikon 1 J5Sony a6000, a5100, a7ROly E-P2IRand Lots-O-Lenses

Hi all After the death of my D300 workhorse and issues with my D7000, I am at the stage where I am considering coming over to the dark side. 5 years ago I would have seen it to be blasphemy however with Nikon still not releasing a D300 successor, a camera with professional build quality, I am looking at either the 7d mk2, the original 7d, or perhaps a used full frame 5d mk2. I work as a High school teacher, teaching photography and I do photos for the school newspaper. I sometime do event...

I see all these adapters that just say "Sony E-Mount", but they never seem to identify if it is the right 'focal length' to use on a full frame sensor, or if it is strictly an APS-C adapter.  Is there any way to know without actually trying it?  In these days of internet purchasing, that is an expensive and frustrating way to find out.  It does make a difference doesn't it? --TomNikon D800, D750, Nikon 1 J5Sony a6000, a5100Oly E-M5, E-P2IRand Lots-O-Lenses

I'm currently in a little financial crisis, and was thinking of selling/replacing some of my gear.I'd like to keep something to shoot with. Have D800, 24-70 (rubber on zoom is out), 14-24 (hard to zoom from 14 to 18mm), 85 1.4, sigma 35 1.4 and a couple of flashes (2x sb800 and sb900). I'd really like to keep 85 and 35 which I love. 24-70 and 14-24 have defects, so I'd lose money on those. Maybe temporary replace D800 with cheaper DX body? What would you suggest?

hi, i was just wondering if there's a way to lock a D800 in portrait mode, so that it'll output files with a specific rotation embedded, regardless of the camera's actual orientation. the particular problem I'm having is in shooting the zenith and nadir of panoramas, sometimes the camera is deciding theyre landscape orientation shots. Aperture has no way to rotate a raw original, such that you can export the raw with the rotation, requiring importing those files separately and rotating with...

I've been doing a little reading on the 'net about the 105 and 135 DC lenses and have come to believe the only real difference between the lenses is the focal length.  I would love to have them both, the 135 for outdoor and 105 for indoor use; but, I cannot justify the expense of having both.  Because my use is mixed, indoor-outdoor, I have come to the belief that the 105 is my better choice as the 135 might at times require more distance than might be available indoors. Primary intended use...

So this wonderfully amazing 4k image quality was produced on a D800 by shooting many, many, many, many pictures and putting them together. However, there are frames that were "made up" in post to fill the blanks. What kind of plugin or technique would allow me to do such thing? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lMItnVmZfw&feature=iv&src_vid=kQQM5HFhVL4&annotation_id=annotation_284069611 I have a D810, and I would like to attempt the same technique.
