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?

Hi from New Zealand! I'm thinking of buying a Df, and I'm currently interested in taking photos of our southern hemisphere night sky this coming winter (it's our autumn now). NZ is one of the better locations - not so much light pollution, and the Milky Way in all its glory. I'm reading that the D4 sensor is great, but I have some questions - hopefully simple - that I can't answer after a glance through a downloaded PDF manual (paper's so much better) and reading a few reviews: [1] - how to...

Hi all, I've been trawling the forums for the answer to this so if this has already been answered please point me to it!  I'm using a late 90's 28-105mm on a nikon df with an sb800. I'm struggling for autofocus in low light.  Is it possible to use the infra red lamp or modelling flash to autofocus the lens? Otherwise, any tips on using low light AF that would be much appreciated. Currently I'm having to zoom out and stop down which is severely limiting flexibility.  Many thanks!  Boofreddy

So, there's an American startup developing a new Leica M mount full frame rangefinder, also with promises for APS-C and 1" sensor models: http://konost.com/ One of the keys to this is apparently that the rangefinder is fully digital with no moving parts or mirrors, that it has a hybrid electronic-optical viewfinder and that the rangefinder parallax image is digital and provided by a separate imaging system (i'm thinking something like decent webcam optics for that). This might be welcome in...

This may be considered DF heresy, but has anyone with a DF been using one of the 3 party vertical grips? One of the reasons I discounted the DF originally was that I shoot a lot vertical and have got used to the convenience of having a grip. Just wondering what they are like quality / ergonomically wise etc.
