Hello, bit of a common question I know but I have a Canon EOS 400D wtih a standard 18-55 kit lens. I have been getting more and more into photography of recent and I want to expand on long exposures and practice my low light and night landscape photography. Seeing as my situation is to practice and aquire skills, I do not want to spend too high on something I won't use excessively (in time I will think about purchasing a fully adjustable tripod with bells and all on :P).  I have been reading...

Hi, I've searched for this and don't see it anywhere in either the manual or on-line.  Is it possible to somehow set the camera up so it sets up a new folder on the SD card every day the camera is used? I seem to remember seeing that on other Nikons[?] but my memory is faulty.  I really don't like the way it is structured now and hope this is somehow possible.  Thanks! marc

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 :...
