  • I agree with the sentiments expressed above, but I am not so sure that Nikon Canada will be any more likely to repair an imported camera than Nikon USA would. Their policies seem to be in lock ...
  • I recall this happened to me once when I transferred some photos from my J5 to my iPhone using Nikon’s WMU. My solution was to transfer the files one at a time rather than as a batch. When I ...
  • Congratulations on the new acquisition. I rented one of these a couple of times. A very nice lens that works well on Nikon 1 cameras and Nikon DSLRs. Have fun.
  • It is slid on. Fit is quite tight. Seems to work. The hole might be conical as opposed to cylindrical.
  • I just checked your profile. You are from Sweden. Of course ordering from KEH in the US makes little sense. Is MPB Europe an option for you for buying used photo equipment? I don’t know who on eBay ...
  • Sorry to read about your problems with your 10-30. You could indeed buy a brass gear and do a DIY repair. (A bit nerve racking, as I found out when I did that to my 30-110.) You could also get the ...
  • Fair enough. My comments were regarding a sentence stating that one must use iCloud in order to use Photos. You can, but don’t need to. Admittedly, I am not a fan of cloud storage - especially of ...
  • I have been able to create Photos libraries that are saved on local drives. No iCloud needed!
  • I prefer to be delusional. Only “World’s Best…” monikers for me. I once won the “Most Honest Golfer” award at a golf tournament. Guess what that meant. :-)
  • One thing I forgot to mention - the Sunny-16 rule is done in the M exposure mode. The rule was developed in the days of film, and worked very well when shooting slide film on clear sunny days. Have ...
  • I and others here have gotten sharp moon photos with various lenses. I usually use the Sunny-16 rule, and adjust the exposure accordingly. At ISO 160, set shutter to 1/125 (closest to reciprocal ...
  • Here are a few photos of seasonal lights I found earlier this month on Granville Island, in Vancouver BC. All were taken with my Nikon J5 and 10-30mm PD zoom. Spheres with lights, Anderson Street - ...

  • Richard, you might want to consider what video playback speed you want in the final video. The most-common ones that Nikon 1 bodies support are 30fps and 60fps. 30fps video looks more cinematic. ...
  • Perhaps not so coincidentally, I bought my star filter(s ?) about 40 years ago. That was the era when a number of competing filter holder systems were at their prime. I mostly bought Cokin ...
  • I sure do. I once bought one, used it once or twice, then forgot about it. That said - you have put yours to good use. Thanks for sharing.
  • Created discussion thread Just Outside My Front Door
    Here are a photos of two Dark-Eyed Juncos taken just outside the front door to my house. This type of bird has been abundant throughout the Autumn months. Both were taken with (What else?) my V2 ...

  • Unless money is really tight consider keeping all three cameras. You say you love shooting with all three, and their lenses. It seems to me that you would just regret selling the camera you get ...
  • Replied in Nikon D500
    Is SnapBridge on? I recall that excess battery drain was traced to the D500 communicating or trying to communicate with a mobile device’s SnapBridge app. Perhaps check to see if your D500 has a ...
