  • The MFA adjustment affects both Servo and One Shot. But setting MFA accurately requires that you are able to take accurate, repeatable focus measurements through the viewfinder, and One Shot is ...
  • You can definitely get ISO 12800 to work better for you than that; at least, I can.  But you e taken plenty of knocks for using f/8.0, so let’s change the subject a little: First, change your ...
  • I believe Nikon and Panasonic make “superzoom” camera’s, which have the long focal length you’ll want for sports photography.
  • D750 is an outstanding camera! AutoISO is a very different experience,  because the camera has so much latitude.  You choose the shutter and aperture you want for the optimal appearance, and let ...
  • It’s sad that we can’t agree on treating other people with decency and respect.

    Of course photographers have a right to fly a drone in public or down the street, but flying a drone to someone’s...

  • That is major BS. I read through their slides. There is NO scientific evidence that electromagnetic radiation is harmful to plants or insects, and there have been scientific studies carried out on ...
  • Replied in 18-55mm lens
    I don’t know Nikon, but I had an 18-55mm Canon and I loved it.  Optically, it was very pleasing.  I’m surprised that it’s a problem for you.  It’s not fast focusing and the aperture isn’t fast, ...
  • Replied in A lot of Math
    There are plenty of great mathematicians in this great country of ours. But I think the OP is saying the same thing as you: He sees a difference visually, even though the math says he shouldn’t... ...
  • Photoshop can batch resize photos.  Google it for the version of Photoshop you’re using.  It’s been supported for years
  • I don’t know how DPReview creates their incredibly precise test images, but if you compare APS-C to full frame, you’ll have to use different focal lengths, and I’m sure they don’t use zoom lenses, ...
  • Exactly what I think, Badwater!
  • I don’t know what you mean by sharpness at 100% or why that matters. But if you want to photograph 1x1-ft tiles, the camera is absolutely fine. It’s by far the least problem. You could consider a ...
  • Replied in The Hair
    My guess is that the photographer saw her hair blowing in the wind, and wanted it sharp. I don’t know what shutter speed it takes to freeze hair, and with the f/1.8, the hair would be a little ...
  • Good photography isn’t about turning the dial from P to M. You should understand all of that stuff, but... look at it this way, there are a million things the camera does automatically. ...
  • At the end of the day, we need to surrender to the fact that art is art. If someone “digitally painted” a photograph and people like the result, then they succeeded.  And whether they spent weeks ...
  • These are non-ionizing frequencies, and they permeate the air around us. 5G is different MODULATION of the same radio frequencies already in use all around us.  By modulating the data differently, ...
  • That man had photography in his blood. He’s really good at capturing people, their expressions and getting good lighting. I really admire his work. I try to capture ambient-lit performers all the ...
  • Replied in Fantastic!
    Amazing stuff!   I just saw this article, but you posted the story 1/ten trillionth of a second before I did. Fundamental research like this may seem boring, but it’s what gave us the DSLR and so ...
  • We have those figures from Nikon’s annual report. I’m too lazy to pull it for every single year, but for 2017: 2.62 Million. Nikon also states that the ILC unit sales from all manufacturers for ...
  • I can’t prove it, but I’m almost certain that more amateurs buy FF cameras than pros, because the amateur market is simply many times larger than the pro market.  And I think most professionals ...
