  • Replied in DL
    Even in the real world...diffraction isn't often a major practical detractor at f11 and 800mm/600mm. Even when a camera system is near or just past its diffraction limit, other factors such as ...
  • Replied in Format?
    RAW is not an image format so you can never "see" it...except for the embedded JPEG that is in the RAW for preview purposes. Same with your D800 Not sure what the issues is. Shooting RAW you have a ...
  • Replied in I could use.
    I would disagree. I could certainly use a lightweight/inexpensive 600mm or 800mm f11 if the optical quality was fair. I only need it for a few scenarios and the alternative $10,000 options would ...
  • Replied in Fun...
    I think there may indeed be quite a few. Nice option had it been there when I first wanted to go really long Fun Fstoppers example D800
  • Replied in True...
    True...doesn't mean the new f11 might be perfect for a number of folks Diffraction is present at all apertures....in some cases it's not even detrimental at f22 and higher...depends on many variables
  • Replied in Then...
    Then likely the pop-up switch is malfunctioning. Go inside and set exposure to green Auto. In a dark room/area with relatively dark subject....does the flash pop up and fire when you try to take a ...
  • Replied in one way
    One way to look at it: " In the big picture, 600 mm f/6.3 is on the fast side of things. 800 mm f/11 is on the slow side of things, but not exceptionally slow. Let's take a look at the range of ...
  • Depends...but the pre-flashes are very noticeable even in bright light.
  • Replied in Forced
    When you manually popup the flash in P, S, A, M exposure modes it's forced to fire (to facility the fill flash function).... unless using a Zoom lens with a Macro Feature and you are inside the min ...
  • Replied in Mode...
    In this case full EXIF shows Flash mode was "unknown". Make sure you have set a flash mode (use Fill Flash Mode) per page 65 in the manual. You should also see a flash ready indicator in the ...
  • Replied in Savings...
    https://www.canonrumors.com/here-are-the-usd-prices-for-the-canon-eos-r5-canon-eos-r6-and-lenses/ Looks like $3900 for the R5 and $2500 for the R6. That doesn't seem to bad....and a $600-$900 ...
  • Replied in Casual...
    It's more an indicator of when the AF systems has "locked" focus.  For manual focus use...it's really just accurate enough for casual use and not precise enough for more focus critical scenarios.  ...
  • Replied in It fired....
    Looking at the image and at the EXIF...the flash fired and return flash was detected. It fired in TTL-BL mode so it's designed to use just enough power to match the overall scene. -BL is the ...
  • Replied in Up load...
    Upload the image you shot with full EXIF .  We can examine the data and see if there might be a simple fix
  • Replied in Note...
    Just a note to add to your other good advice.... the image will look the same (minus monitor calibration) if you open the NEF with Nikon software.
  • Replied in Upload...
    Can you provide a picture of it?  Might help us identify a fix
  • Replied in No need
    No need then as the review with RAW only already uses the embedded Basic JPEG
  • Replied in Big...
    I believe there are three JPEGs in a Z 7 NEF: 640x424, 1620x1080, and 8256x5504. Given the resolution of the rear LCD and it's magnification capability....IMO 8256x5504 is more than enough to check ...
  • POSTING: One photo taken with any Nikon camera - no extractions from video." The photo can be no older than two weeks from the submitted date. - A second Nikon photo may be included with the ...
  • Replied in Dif
    If the color profile is Adobe Neutral (or any of the Adobe profiles) then it will have a large tendency to negate any inherent color differences between the D40 and D5500. If you use Nikon's own ...
