I've watched a lot of Benjamin Wong's stuff, specifically when he uses fire. I don't exactly get how he gets the effects that he gets, but apparently it's with a multiple exposure setting on his Nikon D800. http://www.vonwong.com/blog/andrey-das-master-pyrotechnician/ The link above is the blog post he made about the particular shoot. I want to know how to get the person completely sharp and in focus while having the fire moving around the person. Is multiple exposure essentially just merging...

I'm going on vacation in August and will be visiting the big island of Hawaii for 5 days and the island of Oahu for 4 days.  I've never been to Hawaii at all.  I was hoping someone could recommend what photo equipment I should be taking with me.  I'm definitely going to bring my Nikon D800.  In addition, I have the following equipment to choose from: Nikkor 16-35mm Nikkor 105mm Nikkor 28-300mm  Sigma 150-500mm SB-800 Speedlight SB-900 Speedlight SB-910 Speedlight Tripod with Ballhead and...

Hi, I would like to shoot more field hockey and soccer in the future. So far I used my Nikkor 70-200/4.0 with my D800 and like this combination. But sometimes, the only place to stand and shoot during a game is very close to the field. Then I am not able to step back with my 70-200 if the players are coming too close to me and I "cut" the feeds or the ball with the framing. There is no time to exchange lenses in these situations. So I look for other (cheap) solutions. Since the IQ does not...

Hi, I'm photographing with a Nikon D800 using three Canon 600EX-RT external flashes for off-camera lighting. I know it's not an ideal camera/flash situation but it's all I got. They're all linked up and when I press the test button, they fire. However, when I take a photo, only the one on the camera fires, the other two off-camera ones don't fire. I'm not sure if this is a Nikon to Canon issue or if there's something wrong with the flashes. Would anyone be able to speak into this more?

Could someone please tell me what is the function of the D800 Front Body Unit and what might its components comprise of. I just got a quote from Nikon here in Surrey, UK to fix camera for £551. The problematic is a black horizontal line appears in the bottom frame of all images when taking pictures; mirror box assembly failed to flip motor;built in flash did not work; "err" when attaching AIS manual lenses. But after all is said and done 201,000 clicks registered on this camera. I did get...

My D800 died all of a sudden today. It happened as I was shooting video with a SmallHD DP4 field monitor attached to the HDMI and Rode shotgun mic attached as well. I tried everything; changing batteries, memory cards, lenses, etc. I also tried holding the QUAL and +/- buttons (the two buttons with green dots) for a reset but nothing has worked. When I put in a fresh battery the LCD remains completely blank. I have seen a couple people recommend replacing the clock battery (separate from the...

The day that I can actually go out and buy an X-T1 to supplement my D800 with a lighter and smaller camera for travel on my motorcycle is getting very close (ie next month), however I keep breaking my brains over which lens(es) to get. Get the kit with the 18-55. Cheapest option and by all accounts a great lens. However at 27mm equivalent on the short end is not very wide. My most used lens for my Nikon is the 14-24. Get the kit with the 18-135. Lens is less, optically, than the previous and...

Hey guys, I know normally, you should use manual focus in video mode. But I am currently building my own 3 Axis Handgimbal so I can't autofocus while it is attached to it. So i pressed that http://prntscr.com/6y66fb and that states in the top corner AF-F which should normally mean continous autocus doesnt it? But if i just focus in a small hing 30mm infront of the lens and then i turn around while recording, it doesnt change the focus. Can somebody tell me what i am doing wrong in...

Hey everyone,I'll be travelling to South America (Chile, Peru and Bolivia) in Mid-May for 2.5 weeks with my friend. I'm from Asia so it's kind of a trip of a lifetime for me.I'm having some trouble choosing what lenses to bring as it's hard to balance between quality, safety and weight. We'll be staying in decent hotels (3 stars) throughout but my concern will be during transits and at tourist locations as we will mainly be travelling by bus and train. Also, it's just the two of us (my friend...
