Has anyone else had this problem with the textured grip material peeling off the body? And if so what did you do to fix it (besides tape)? The camera is about two year’s old and used every day and I don’t have a spare I want to use for my current street work commission while I send it into Nikon for a month or more, so I’ll likely carefully glue it down. I has a similar problem with my Nikon F3-T in the 1980's but this material is much thicker and likely easier to glue down. I’m sure that...

I'm shooting with a D800e and using 3 remote SB-800s and the built in flash as the commander. I have 2 flashes on channel A and 1 on channel B.  A is set to manual at 1/20, B is set to manual at 1/4.  The single flash is not pointed at the drops, but I'm getting some overflow. The problem I'm having is that the single flash is a longer duration and giving me a trailing light when I don't want it.  I'm set for rear curtain sync, so I'm guessing this is the issue. This makes my drops look...

Could use a bit of advice here. So I was showing off some of my 13 x 19 prints to a lady I met at Barnes & Noble when she decided to call her daughter to stop by and check out my work. The daughter came, checked out my work, and found a print she really liked. Problem is she wants the print to be at least 3 feet wide.  Now being that I shoot in RAW with a D800E, with an uncropped image I can get a size of about 20 x 30 inches without upsizing. That said, this particular image gives me a...

Is it possible to focus wide open in the D800E live view regardless of the selected aperture?

If I set the exposure preview off and activate live view while the lens is wide open and change the aperture in live view, what is the visible depth of filed? Is it DOF corresponding to the wide open aperture or the one chosen in live view? In live view, I'd like to focus wide open regardless of selected aperture. I know that this can be done in the D600/610 but I do not know if it is possible in D800/E.

Every D800E resource I have read (manual, forums, etc.) states that pressing the OK button in LiveView mode toggles the exposure simulator on and off but the OK button does nothing in LiveView on my camera. Additionally, I cannot turn the shutter speed lower that 1/30 in LiveView. I have firmware version 1.10 (A and B), I am wondering if they disabled the exposure compensation with newer firmware versions? My goal is to be able to focus on stars by switching on LiveView and zooming in on a...

When comparing the D810 with my D800E, focus accuracy, sharpness and overall PQ is truly a game changer. The D810 blows away the D800E in every situation; I get sharper pictures with the 24-85 kit glass, but I’d like to have a faster glass and be able to take full advantage of the D810 amazing performance. As I search about glasses, it seems that even when shooting at high speed and when VR is not needed, the 24-70mm f/2.8 delivers the same or even less sharpness than the 24-85 kit glass. I’d...

I have been reading through some of the threads about the new 5d's and I don't have much experience with the anti AA world as I have used only canons. And I haven't found much discussion about the AA filter or not to filter. For a little background; I am a working pro, with 25 years+ shooting only advertising. But my client base is broad. I have made my living shooting over the many years now from starting in college working with a busy portrait studio shooting 50 weddings a year + seniors,...
