Evening!I have been given an opportunity to buy Perfect Resize at a nice discount and I was wondering whether I should go for it or not. i currently use Lightroom 5 and Photoshop CS6 and I am trying to figure out whether Perfect Resize is something I might need at some point in my career or whether the tools in CS6 are sufficient. I'm an art and fashion photographer, I'm thinking someday maybe a client will ask for a file for say a giant billboard or something. And as far as Art photography...

Hello all. I and a number of other experienced photographers have been plagued with AF issues when pairing the three f/1.4 high end primes with our D800(E) cameras. The issue being a gross unrepeatability of the AF system where even with good AF targets, the camera will focus unreliably with these three lenses, scattering results in front of and (perhaps more commonly) behind the intended point with complete abandon. Not everyone seems to suffer from this, but those that do will know what I...

Hi, I had been reading the forum, and the reviews in dpreviewsince 2008, when I get my first DSLR. Now I want to get a new dslr setup, because I sold all my lenses, and bodies. I want to start to sell stock photos; mostly food photos, and also I will not buy the camera only for stock photography I'll use it in my daily, general shootings too. Also I wan't to the use body for minimum 3-4 years.I'll buy a lightning set(strobes,continous lights). The question is that; I have few choices in my...

Hi all, quick question please. I've just received my brand new D4 body (great price due to the D4s), and am just setting the custom functions up similar to how I use my D800 (which it will partner). One function on the D800 which I use all the time is to set the custom function F1 (Power switch), to display the shooting information on the rear screen, when turning it to the illumination position. This saves me having to move my hands to press the "Info" button, and I like it a lot. I don't...

I only ask because there are features that should be seemingly obvious but I can't fine them... The D4 and D4s have a way to keep the current review zoom level as you look through images and delete the bad ones. The D800 and D810 both revert back to "FIT" as soon as you hit the Delete button. It is truly annoying when going through a sequence having to go back to 100% zoom. After 10 shots I give up :( Thanks --Mannyhttp://www.pbase.com/gonzalu/http://www.thrustimages.com/FCAS Member -...

I have 2 D800's (lucky me). the problem is that they both produce very different results when shooting in the same environment. The difference boils down to their varying interpretation of the white point in any given scene. I shoot RAW (white point set to Auto) so I can deal with it in Camera Raw, but it is a pain having to keep doing so every time I use both bodies at the same location. Incidentally, both white points are off neutral by a noticeable distance - one is too warm and the other...

On my D300, D800, and D7000, I have always used the Fn button to temporarily change the metering mode (usually from Matrix) to Spot. This way I can use Matrix metering for most shots but quickly change to spot metering when the situation calls for it. Unless I'm missing something, the only way I can change the metering mode on the D7100 is to use the button/dial on the top of the camera. Not only does this force me to take my eye off the viewfinder (since the mode is not indicated in the...

Sorry if this is the wrong forum. I've been a reasonably happy Canon DSLR owner for some years, but getting impatient on Canon having a full-frame to match the Sony full-frame sensors in the A7r and D800 series. According to DxoMark, the highly rated Samyang 14mm is significantly sharper on the D800e than my Canon 6d. I own the Samyang 14mm for Canon and have been impressed. It's one of my favorite lenses. The differences are almost hard to believe. Real world, what can I expect as far as...

I am considering the D810. I will use it primarily for still shots. However, I do plan to try my hand at video since it will be available. My computer is 2.7 GHz Intel Core i5; 16 GB ram; several 2 TB external drives; OS 10.9.4;  iMovie; PS CC 2014 Is this good enough to edit D800 video? (asking present D800 owners)

I’m thinking of ‘trading’ my D800 for either a D810 or waiting for the D7100 replacement. I know at first read, this may seem like a strange choice, but here’s my situation. My shoot primarily events and lifestyle subjects and my bread and butter camera is my D4. I bought the D800 to be a second body. At some events, I prefer to shoot two cameras and I needed to have a backup anyway. I’d hoped to also use the D800 as an occasional DX camera, shooting smaller DX lenses for travel/walkaround...
