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:  - 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.
I've just been playing around with importing Picture Controls to a Df. Using Picture Control Utility 2 I selected Vivid, made a few alterations to it, and exported it to \Nikon\CustomPC on an SD card, and successfully imported it into the Df. I also found a Kodachrome emulation on the web, based I believe on Standard, and imported that OK. But then I looked at the D2 emulations in PCU2, exported one of those and tried importing it into Df. No joy. The Df doesn't even recognise that it's on...
