  • Crazy thing is my friends step-dad did this, he created RED. Everyone thought he was crazy and it wouldn’t work out. It almost didn’t at first and sure he’s had some failures, but overall he did ...
  • So the photo could have been from my front door, but it could also be most of my neighbors front doors as well. I live in a track house neighborhood where most houses have a similar if not exact ...
  • No but they do sell lenses that were previously rental lenses, which is something I’d personally avoid like a street hooker. Plus that’s a little bit of a high price for that lens, which on eBay ...
  • Yeah unfortunately Amazon does handle their own shipping now so they have the final say. Also I used an Amazon credit card, which is technically through Chase bank, but who do you think they will ...
  • Created discussion thread Dangers of buying on Amazon!
    So I had a bad experience with Amazon and I’ve learned something I thought I’d share with you all. I ordered a Carbon Fiber Peak Design travel tripod for a recent trip I was going on. I already ...

  • Maybe my memory is just bad, maybe the D4s is better than the D810 with grip and same battery. It’s been awhile since I’ve used both side by side, I still have my D810. However I’m now mostly ...
  • Evolutions not revolutions, but over the past 20 years there is a very noticeable difference in sharpness, yet each model is more than sharp enough. I’d say there wasn’t much of a difference ...
  • Yes the FL is better than the G and the G is better than the AF-S II, all minor image quality differences but between the AF-S II and FL, it’s pretty noticeable! So little by little there has ...
  • I’ve had every 400mm f2.8 since the original AF-S, so AF-S II, 400mm G VR and now the VR FL. The 400mm is the sharpest and produces the best images out of the normal super-teles under 800mm. The ...
  • Replied in Live view
    With the MB-D12 and EN-EL18a batteries I didn’t notice any difference between the D4s and D810 if both were shot at 5 FPS, at 11fps of course the D4s is better. I’m not making it up or imagining ...
  • I have nothing to add, but yes even though size or weight might be more, you’re getting an advantage by using the full frame lens. Unless it’s a wide angle like the said, that’s the only ...
  • Exactly I’ll take the D500 for those reasons and more, but the truth is simple, D500 has advantages and D850 has advantages! No one is really wrong, both have their place and both have a few small ...
  • Yes Nikon fully intends full frame lenses to be used on DX crop bodies, anyone who tells you differently is wrong! There is absolutely no reason not to buy an FX lens due to owning or using a DX ...
  • Nikon will no longer send or sell parts unless your an authorized repair center and those don’t exist anymore I don’t believe, but maybe there is a couple left I can’t remember. However I’ve fixed ...
  • CIPA is not correct or to be trusted and I own and use both lenses quite often, as in daily, professionally. People on here sure love to find evidence that counters everything and anything you ...
  • Even the though the D850 does do much better than the D810, it’s still not ideal, but useable sure. The issue is not so much a noticeable loss in image quality although there is slight loss in my ...
  • It depends on the camera, D500 you could away with the TC-14E III on the 70-200mm FL due to it using the center (sharpest part) of the lens! However I’d spring for a 300PF used or import or even ...
  • Replied in 19mm PC what?
    I could go on and on, but there are much better experts out there, so I’ll give you the best advice, watch Youtube videos about Tilt/Shift lenses. Preferably from real estate or architectural ...
  • Wether or not you like or agree with the Angry photographer, also known as Ken Wheeler is not a “flat earther.” He’s too intelligent to be naive enough to believe that and in fact he’s said the ...
