  • Interesting stuff. I have just checked the very first image I took with my new D7200 & the 50mm 1.8D and as it was a lovely sunny day and I wanted some DOF on my complex flower spike I did indeed ...

    @anotherMike I think you may be reading too much into the original review. I have just read it again and the OP makes modest claims for the lens. He says the AF is slower than modern lenses. His ...

    I bought this as my first prime lens and I think paid less than the OP. I researched it on here before I bought it and was aware of the poor bokeh but since using the lens I have found it has good ...

    Zeiss Milvus £1,759 Sigma Art £575 Zeiss Otus £2,948 Nikon 58 f1/4 £1,199 Wow, how perceptive :-)
  • I was so pleased I had this lens when I bought my D7200. After unboxing the camera I put it on and went into the garden and took a single photograph of a colourful plant. I looked at the shot on ...
  • Replied in What..
    Just have to wait for a nice sunny day - a rare event during the last few weeks here in a Liverpool ! what shutter speed should I aim for to ensure that it is removed from the sharpness equation ?
  • Now that my grip has arrived I have re-read your post.  I don't understand what you are saying about the BBF.  Do you mean that the BBF button (I assume you have used AE-L AE-F) functions ...
  • My 50 f1/8 is the only lens I use without a hood and that was because it did not come with one. Remedied this yesterday when a rubber hood arrived for it. This screws into the filter ring. Have ...
  • Replied in What..
    I tried LV yesterday and it does do the job of holding the mirror open for as long as needed (apart from the hit on the battery). I was shooting at ISO400 @ 1/40th sec. The birds land on a peg on ...
  • The bargain basement grip arrived today and I am impressed.  It fits perfectly without any gaps that I have read about. All the buttons and dials function with one exception. Could I ask a favour ...
  • You say it has video leds. I am completely without knowledge of external flashes for the RX100 but assumed that meant it had some kind of flood mode for video. However the model sold here in the ...
  • I agree that using a proprietary db might not be ideal but I rely on LR to do it for me and I figure that Adobe should be around for a while ;-) As you suggest, I use keywords for each image and ...
  • I've got a Heliopan. They do a 'Slim' model and mine is remarkably thin. It is one of those where you pay more for less !  It is quite expensive (UK) but TBH I really can't tell much difference in ...
  • Yes, you're correct - that will be the next thing to try. Thanks for posting :)
  • Maybe it is a case of the camera feeling more balanced with the battery up in the main body rather than in the grip .....   over to you bflood ;-)
  • As the title suggests I am looking for some way to support my camera when it is on the table. Not only for taking photos but sometimes just operating the camera menus etc. I have a Peak Designs ...
  • The D7200 has a receiver on the rear so it may well be that the D7500 has one also. Should it haven't or if you need more range, Neweer (and the usual suspects) make excellent radio triggers. ...
  • Interesting replies and at £19. 99 I have taken the plunge and ordered one. I thought about the battery problem - it does seem Nikon should have thought of a way of being able to change the main ...
  • That is a useful mode and I use it quite frequently but it was not appropriate for the bullfinches I was trying to photograph as they only stay on the feeder for a second or two and by the time of ...
  • In an ideal world you are correct, unfortunately though we don't live in an ideal world ;-) In this situation there was not really an ideal amount of light so I was pushing every advantage I had in ...
