  • In the Nikon line, the D7200 would indeed be excellent, but for your purposes any of the equivalent resolution (24Mp) cameras in the D3xxx and D5xxx series would work just as well and cost a lot ...
  • I used to think it was those damn give-away prices for 12 months of Popular Photography for only $12.  Cost me hundreds of dollars a year after I learned about all the new gear I had to have from ...
  • Replied in Depends on lens
    With the Nikon 200-500 I almost always use Sport mode VR and shutter speeds 3000-4000.  With the AF-S 80-400 G, VR almost always gives me trouble, even with shutter speeds up to 4000.  Erratic ...
  • I've been using NiMH in my SB-400 for several years and never once had a problem.  Other than verifying that your NiMH batteries are indeed charged, I have no idea why you are having this problem. ...
  • I have both the 200-500 and the 80-400G and have used both  with D7100 and D500, mostly BIF.  On my copies I don't see any significant difference in image quality. What I do see is a big ...
  • I don't see that behavior on my D500.  I tried both Auto ISO and fixed ISO with Live View, starting with ISO 100 as the initial setting.  In Auto ISO, when I changed aperture (M mode), ISO changed ...
  • Yes, I bought it.  Previously I had gotten the D7100 and V1 books Thom put out, so clearly I have found value in them. Like many DP participants, I'm a technically oriented gear guy, and while I ...
  • Replied in Best Buy
    I was stunned when I went in to our local BestBuy in Albuquerque and saw not only the usual out of date D3100's etc, but everything up to a D750, D810 and even the latest D500! (no D5 though :-D ...
  • I just got a D500 a few days ago and have been testing it out with the AF-s 80-400 and the AF-S 200-500 on pigeons, ducks and Canadian geese.  Focus performance was nothing short of amazing. ...
  • Strap a laser pointer onto to the lens or camera body such that it points (stabily) into the center of the lens field of view.  Watch the pointer in your camera viewfinder. You'll see it move ...
  • There is a bug in 6.5 that causes it to fail to display the "lens" field with the name of the lens. It is apparently acknowledged by Adobe. https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/ca ...
  • This is a topic of considerable interest to me. I find the VR behavior is very different for different lenses (and perhaps cameras). VR gives me real trouble on my AF-S 80-400mm VR at high (>1/200) ...
  • Oops. Actually I have the older XPS 15 9530 with an i7-4712HQ, 16GB. So everything I've added is probably irrelevant. Not the first time. Peter
  • Sorry for lack of clarity. The original laptop had the 1TB spinning hard drive with a 32GB mSATA SSD. I replaced the 32GB mSATA SSD with the 500GB Samsung 850 EVO and moved the OS, programs and ...
  • I also have and XPS-15 9550 with 16GB and the 1TB hard drive. Instead of increasing RAM, I choose to replace the 32GB SSD with a 500GB Samsung 850 EVO mSATA SSD for $149 as the system drive.  I'm ...
  • Has anybody gotten an SB500 to work with a D7100 or D7200, particularly in master commander mode? Peter
  • Another strong recommendation for ExifTool. For a graphic interface, also install ExifGui (also free) which makes it easy to browse and check exif parameters on photos. ExifTool can also be ...
  • Craig: I know you can get VR (on/off) and focus point in Lightroom using Rob Cole's rc Exif Meta plug-in and Jeff Freidl's MetaData Viewer.  Unfortunately, Rob Cole has disappeared offline and I'm ...
