  • I was over glamoured with my film shooting days with the Nikon F5 and figured I'd go back into film and have one of the best P&S that allows manual so ended up with the Nikon 28Ti mint complete on ...
  • I don't recommend buying a film camera. You can do what you ask with a cheap digital dslr. I bought a film camera last year for $600 thinking how cool it would be to get back into it. Then I went ...
  • Replied in Just a warning
    I don't know where the results of your images are going, but be warned high-end monitors I've found aren't WYSIWYG. I bought one several years ago and it was IMPOSSIBLE for it to display noise and ...
  • Replied in My take...
    I understand... I've personally been shooting Nikon since 1999 when I believe Nikon had the market share. First Nikon releases a VR camera a year before Canon released their first IS (although ...
  • I shoot events, I don't have a quiet shutter.  While shooting the event there's constant parents who don't know how to shut off auto-focus beeps so the entire event is beep-beep *flashclick*, ...
  • The exposure scale does not take into consideration if the flash is off the camera. It's to be used as a guide when the flash is on the camera. I'm also assuming you're referring to the feature of ...
  • Yes stabilization is a must. In low light you need all the help you can get trying to get sharp pictures at 300mm. You'll be glad you have 300mm frequently, it's not too long trust me you'll be ...
  • When shooting outdoors in sun, the problem is overcoming the sun. A speedlight doesn't have enough power, you have to use them in certain circumstances or use them bare as putting them in a softbox ...
  • That lens comes in a lot of different models, and I agree with everyone else VR is an incredible feature definitely worth it. I started photography back in 1999 when Nikon didn't have VR for many, ...
  • I got the 3Pod Orbit 4 section Carbon Fiber Tripod with pistol grip for $199 from Adorama, wasn't a Black Friday deal, but on sale.  It's still going on. I agree with having a travel tripod, I had ...
  • Replied in Cloud storage
    I'm not sure most people use cloud storage since it's expensive. They need a lot of bandwidth, UPS batteries, backup generators, multiple site locations, full time security personnel, full IT ...
  • I would say, Bird photographers or NFL/sports. Bird photographers need some serious glass to even get those little things somewhat filling up the frame and/or to freeze them in flight and I find ...
  • It was Neil Van Niekerk that gave this wonderful piece of advice IMHO.  Raw is great when you first download to fix/adjust for mistakes.  However, once you have the RAW image corrected there's no ...
  • Replied in Why?
    Totally agree. When buying a laptop I require it has an SD card reader. When buying a camera I also make sure it takes an SD card. Thom Hogan complains how the dslr market is losing ground as it is ...
  • I tried one about a year ago. For Photoshop it's powerful and well integrated. Lightroom was a horror for me. I felt the Photoshop team that worked on integrating the tablet were well educated, ...
  • As a beginner, you want a flash with TTL. If you're going to be changing distances between your subject a TTL flash is the way to go. This means the camera fires a pre-flash and determines what ...
  • Better hurry, Nikon still has some lenses on sale which you can see in the link below, but last week there were a lot more that I remember so unfortunately you just missed the big sale. Nikon Lens Sale
  • Well, I'm similar to you but at the next level I think. I didn't find there to be many situations the CLS flashes didn't trigger my flashes. Then I got a little more advanced and started to use ...
  • A travel camera to me has to have a couple of features. It has to allow a shoe mount flash. Bouncing flash improves pictures so much. Since I have a Nikon system already, it goes without saying I'd ...
  • I'm looking at the above system, as I did a wedding and the church was like a black hole. I was using an SB-800 speedlight (Nikons brightest), but it was firing at full power, was taking 3-4 ...
