Hi all, I was thinking to upgrade to nikon D810 from D800 but I should change my workflow in PP because Capture NX2 that I use is not updated for D810. Yes, I could adapt to changing my pp workflow, but there is something that I like of the Nikon Software: the same "in camera options" (WB, Picture control, ADL, etc) are present in the PP software and I like to modify my NEF files using these settings firts because it seems to me I am more conservative. So, once I have done my "conservative...

I have an old non-AIS Vivitar Series 1 70-210 F3.5 lens, manufactured by Kiron. According to some reviews, it has good optics. It is pre-AIS, however. According to Ken Rockwell he states to avoid the pre-AIS version of this lens "...since newer ones cost no more used." http://www.kenrockwell.com/vivitar/70-210mm.htm On Robert Stech's web site (http://www.robertstech.com/vivitar.htm#compatibility) he states for Nikon mounts "All cameras will permit these lenses to be mounted, but some will not...

Up to now I've been reticent about hanging the camera from the tripod socket, but maybe I'm wrong, so ... What sort of weight will the tripod socket hold? What about a D800 + 70-200mm f\2.8 (or do you hang from the lens collar in this case?). I can't see this information on BlackRapid's website, but maybe it's in the videos which I haven't looked at. What about D800 + 24-70? I keep a Really Right Stuff L bracket on the camera body pretty well always - could I still use a BlackRapid, or would...

Hello. Does anybody have the means to very accurately (microns) measure the registration distances present in some of the modern Nikon DSLRs? Of most interest to me are the D800(E) and the D810 and Df. My reason for asking is thus: I have a few manual focus lenses which have hard infinity stops and it is standard for the infinity stops to go just a gnat's cock past infinity to accommodate temperature driven dimensional changes (expansion/contraction) and possibly atmospheric conditions (not...

In the UK October is the time the salmon go up river (or will be when we get some rain to fill the rivers a bit - didn't think I'd be saying not enough rain in the UK!). Last year I used a D800 with 70-200 f/2.8 lens on a tripod, lens set at between 100mm and 135mm F/4 and speed around 1/500 second (ISO400). I will have had VR turned off. This year I have same lens but D810. I know I need a faster speed (at least 1/1000 sec) so will up the ISO to 800 or 1000. What autofocus setting do you...

Hi everybody, i have a question - Lets assume a DX camera has a sensor pixel pitch of 4.7 um (e.g. D7000). Lets say there's an FX camera with the same pixel pitch (e.g. D800). I'm assuming the sensor technology to be near enough i.e. not a huge gap like 10 years. Assume the subject occupies the same size on the sensor (e.g. 1 cm). The FX image will have a wider field of view - that's ok. Assuming its low light so a high ISO is used (e.g. 3200), will the FX image be less noisy ? If so, why...

Getting into portraiture and I was wondering what is the best way to focus on the eyes and still be able to react quickly to capture expressions. Currently, I use single point focus and gain focus on the eye, recompose and shoot.  While that gets good focus, the time require to do this means that I miss some good expressions, particularly with children or when the subject's head moves around some, even though they may be sitting in the same place.  What approach do you take to ensure you have...
