Hello, is anyone using the combination of an Eye-Fi PRO X2 in "Direct Mode" and a Nikon Df successfully?  I searched the forums and found plenty of 8XX talk about it but no Df. Twice I've had it successfully transfer some files, only to disconnect partway through and never re-try. At present I have taken over 30 photos and none have been transferred. In particular anything on the power setting I might have overlooked? At this point I've extended the screen/review/menu timeouts to 10...

Anybody tell me where I can get basic instructions in making and editing video?  I need to know the technical including shooting and editing  as well as a bit of the aesthetic side. I tried this before and had a very hard time getting the final video to DVD..very confusing with so many formats... a nd I bought these cheap DFD disks at Staples and I am not even sure they work right.. Its all new to me but I have decided to give it a try with my D750 Thanks!

family photographer a6000 owner frustrated with Sony e-mount compact lens options, eyeing m43rds for a more mature lens system (12-35 2.8, 12-40 2.8, 35-100 2.8, 20 1.7 etc.) All 5 bodies I listed are all options to me.  Some of my important wants: touch focus electronic viewfinder of reasonable quality manual controls: af, drive mode, exposure, memory save/restore ability to pull AF smoothly during video (is DFD as good as panasonic would have me believe) good buffering / shooting...

For the past 9 years I've been a happy user of the Panasonic FZ series of cameras, specifically the FZ7, FZ28 and FZ150 (my current camera). After four years of using the FZ150 I'm about ready to upgrade my camera again, specifically to improve on the following points: The FZ150's pretty poor low light performance The FZ150's mediocre dynamic range The option to use a shallower DOF than the FZ150's 1/2.3" sensor allows Better image quality Better focusing speed, especially in low light For...

Hi, Need suggestion for a shoulder bag that can hold the Nikon Df with 58mm1.4 lens or the 20mm 1.8G lens and Olympus EM5II with 12-40 zoom. Weather resistance ( or weather cover) is a plus. If both Nikon lenses can fit along, not just one of them, that may also be an option. Perhaps my first option... not sure. Have looked at the Lowepro and Caselogis sites. Also briefly looked at the Kata site, but I may have missed the bags that actually is will fit my need. I would like that there is a...

Hello to you all, My wife and I are planning a trip to India in February 2016. We love India, and it will be my fourth trip in this wonderful country, but it will be our first journey with some wildlife photography in mind. We’ll visit North India : Rajhastan, Taj Mahal, and we plan to spend some days in national parks : 4-5 days in Corbett for sure, and maybe Keoladeo with birds in mind or Ranthambore for tigers. What kind of lenses would you advise us to take ? We already have bodies :...

I have several Nikon speedlights, including SB-300, SB-500, SB-600, SB-700 and SB-900. Normally I use the smaller flashes with the Df, because they just seem better suited. The other day, however, I pulled out the SB-900 and started shooting it with the Df. I was using matrix metering, the flash was set to TTL, I was doing what I typically do but my images were coming out way over exposed. The SB-900 works properly with my D800, D700, D300, so I don't suspect a problem with the flash, and the...

Hi all, I'm trying to produce images using flash that doesn't look like the typical point&shoot burned image. After realizing that an external flash is very important I bought one (a cheap one, ok, didn't want/can't expend too much), a Vivitar DF383. I'm not an expert but it seems to work perfectly. So, I had a chance to try my FZ1000 with the Vivitar Flash in a birthday. First I made a research on internet to know how to make photography with flash, then I tried some settings with the flash...

I have a D7000 and the only two things that regularly bother me are: 1. Generally poor low light performance with high noise even at 1200 ISO 2. Frustrating focus speed. I do have some issues with the DOF issues, but that is third on the list, but not a deal breaker. The Df would clearly be great for the ISO issues. So would the 750, I know, but Df would be great. Does the Df focus quickly and responsively at a level close to the 750, or would it be more like the D7000, or in between? My main...

I just set up my Df to use only the AF-ON back button for focusing. I have also set it up so that the shutter only releases if the subject is in focus. Testing the camera with the subject clearly out of focus, the shutter releases taking the blurry image. Is it not suppose to release only if the subject is in focus?
