  • I totally understand your dilemma. I went between the 12-60mm and the 14-140mm Mk2 kit combo too many times before picking the 12-60mm kit in the end together with a 45-150mm Panasonic zoom. ...
  • Very nice reportage, and I appreciate your introduction and further comments.
  • As the posters above me already explained; yes, it is normal. You can even see the wiggling if you follow the link in this thread: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/58951047
  • Maybe I got it wrong, but it sounds as if you are expecting the P mode to behave more like some Auto mode in your wife's hands, with no need to change anything. So why doesn't she use Auto? When ...
  • Music is very good, but I like pretty much all Hans Zimmer's film music. Film itself - it's OK, I liked the mood, but I wasn't overly impressed. It's just not a film I would specifically like to ...
  • Replied in Or use Sugru...
    Sugru mouldable rubber would also be perfect for this. I ordered some Sugru for this very reason The less than ideal tactile feedback I was getting from the buttons on G80 bothered me too. But ...
  • Hi. Are you missing anything in particular? Me, I would like to see Auto ISO improved. Why on earth is it not possible to choose the lower limit for shutter speed for Auto ISO? This must be one of ...
  • Replied in Patona
    I can recommend Patona batteries (a German make). I have had good experience with Patona replacements for original batteries for Nikon P7700 (slightly inferior to the original Nikon battery, but as ...
  • The problem: (1) Currently bookmarks can only be displayed ordered by the last post made to the thread (the newest first) in which the bookmarked post appeared. So, if I today stumble on and bookmark a ...
  • It is similar with TC-DC58C 2x: it has a 58 mm thread while the lens is 52 mm. Totally agree, I haven't tried it yet and I am very reluctant to even attempt it. But I am actually more concerned ...
  • Created question thread Teleconverters...
    Do you use teleconverters designed for compact cameras attached to the front element of an exchangeable m43 lens? I have a Canon TC-DC58C 2x teleconverter back from the Powershot A650 IS days and I ...
  • Well yes, the frame on which the sensor is mounted moves if you shake the camera (while it is switched off) and there is a tiny sound caused by this that can be heard if everything else is quiet ...
  • I hear it too, when the camera is switched off. Check the video linked to in this thread , around 6:40 time mark, to see the likely "culprit" for the sound you're hearing.
  • I am glad to report that my camera (P7700 in my case, but the same multicontroller issue) is fixed as well! The cost of replacing the module containing the dial and the buttons around it was 52 ...
  • I know, but I am looking for something smaller now. If I wanted to stay with a DSLR I would pick a D7500. The m43 format looks very appealing to me right now...

  • What I meant was that I was looking at cheaper prosumers to replace my present cameras. I am looking at cameras such as Oly EM5 II, Panasonic G85 or Canon M5 to replace the D5000. If I was looking...

  • I know zero about corporate management and I know Nikon is involved in different areas of industry. I can only comment as a consumer of let's say cheaper "prosumer" cameras. I have been on a...

  • Well, I sure hope your P7800 will last. There seems there is no rule. My camera (P7700 not P7800, but it's the same design) first started do show the "symptoms" after about 6 months. After getting ...
  • Ha! That's exactly the status of this dial on my camera after the last resuscitation attempt. Same here, I am waiting for a reply from our local reps as well. Many Nikon cameras have apparently the ...
  • I thought it was discontinued two years ago ;-). You're absolutely right, don't sell it, it's a fine little camera. Sadly, nobody makes cameras like this anymore.
