  • In my live as service engineer, I have replaced hundreds, maybe even more than one thousand, of HDDs in big servers, workstations and storage appliances. The sizes went from 8" to 2.5" during that ...
  • Depending on the age of the lens, I wouldn't bet, that it works with every Nikon DSLR with integrated motor. Third party manufacturers have to reverse engineer the protocol between lens and ...
  • Since nighttime scavengers took care of the leftovers from yesterday, after some calling, the parents served breakfast on a sunny, but chilly morning. In the evening, I found him sitting in a tree.
  • Created discussion thread Young falcon at his lunchplace
    at the corner of the house. Not the best place chosen by the parents, since it's on the usual path of several cats around the house. In early spring a pair of falcons took over the magpies nest in ...
  • I think you have adapters, that will work well with the older NX10/20/100. With later models, Samsung changed to tighter tolerances for the little switch in the mount, which tells the camera that ...
  • Replied in Backpacks
    The thing in the link is a backprotector with some pockets, not a transport solution for an ILC with some lenses. It's for someone who uses his bike for sports and wants to go light. My needs for ...
  • Both my bikes have rear luggage racks with bags mounted. My city bike is a hard tail and has double rear bags, into which my biggest messenger bag fits easily, with a D700, 2.8/24-70, 3.5-4.5/18-35 ...
  • I don't  know, if the Tokina and the Vivitar are really identical, but my Tokina turns from 3m to infinity only around 25° compared to the 90° of my little Sonnar 2.8/85. This makes focusing at ...
  • My 50-500 was the original mk 1 version, bought 2005, with aperture ring, no OS, no DG and did not reliably AF with the Z6, which was the main reason to get a more modern lens. The 200-500 is wide ...
  • If you don't know it already, a D3300 has no metering with chipless manual lenses like a Nikkor Q. You can use the camera only in M, none of the auto modes is working, not even the internal light ...
  • Last years travel bag contained the RX10 III, the NX2000 with 12-24 and 30mm, a microphone for the Sony, batteries, a remote shutter release for the Sony and a brush to clean the EVF and lenses. ...
  • I got  myself a Lowepro LP36307 for storage and transport, when I don't want to use one of the backpacks. Ok, the 200-500 is a little bit bigger and heavier than the old Sigma 50-500 I have ...
  • Regarding CA, the 300mm is the worst offender in my collection. I own the earlier AE lens, Made in Germany, maybe the later MM lenses are better in this regard. Carl Zeiss Tele Tessar 300mm f4.0 ...
  • Replied in SLR pipes
    From your selection I know only the Tokina RMC 4/80-200. I used it with film and at the 6mp Fujifilm S3 Pro. It does not get a recommendation from me for digital. While it may be a sharp lens, it ...
  • Just switch off Auto ISO and you will be happy, since M doesn't affect the setting for Auto ISO.
  • Most likely, there is no solution. I would ask Sigma if they still do firmware updates for the 18-250 and if there is one with working AF at the Nikon Z. For my pre 2010 Sigma HSM lenses there are ...
  • No difference, only that you don't get the fastest cards as Micro SD. I use in all my cameras which need full sized SD, adapted Micro SD simply because my mobile devices use them too and there is ...
  • Most of my older Sigma HSM lenses I used with the D700 are not really suitable for more modern Nikon DSLRs or the Z. Failed lenses, like the Sigma 17-35, where already replaced by Nikon lenses, ...
  • There was never a manual 60mm sold by Nikon. But there was for instance a 86mm Nikkor, so I use this for my 90mm Tokina, because I can't enter 90mm too. Just use something a little bit shorter, so ...
  • Just remember, that european dealers have to give a warranty for used goods too. As a consequence, I was quoted only 250€ for my VR 1 when I asked some dealers at a camera show who did buy used ...
