  • Replied in Travel camera
    I do a lot of bicycle touring, which has some similarities to backpacking. In any case, I don't want to carry anything big and heavy. In many places, I don't want to carry anything valuable that ...
  • 35mm is not wide at all on DX. It's a 52mm equivalent. Note that, if you're taking pictures of people, you will tend to have problems with perspective distortion at focal lengths below about 30mm. ...
  • The AI-S lens that I use besides the 105 is a 55mm f/2.8 Micro Nikkor. It's easier for me to do macro with a lens with an aperture ring. It also doesn't change focal length when I focus. And it ...
  • I have a bag full of film era Nikkors and most of them aren't so good. The 105mm f/2.5 is an exception and is still my favorite portrait lens except that I have trouble focusing it. The solution is ...
  • They make very nice junks:
  • Replied in There's a cure
    It depends on the camera. On my D300, you can't do that. On my new D750, there are user settings U1 and U2 on the mode dial so I put the naive settings on U2.
  • Replied in There's a cure
    In the other BB focus thread in this forum, GodSpeaks noted that he has a custom preset set to P mode and half-press focus for this very situation. I did the same thing immediately after seeing ...
  • Replied in I noticed that
    No joke. I just bought an FX Nikon and I don't have anything wider than 24mm. The prices on the FX wide-angles are pretty steep. There's a good chance I'll put my 10-24 on the FX camera and see ...
  • Replied in Never tried that
    That could be. For many years, I used Windows XP at work and a Mac at home. Photoshop worked fine on both platforms. I have a Windows 10 laptop but don't run Photoshop or Lightroom on it. It does, ...
  • If you're using Adobe Lightroom and/or Photoshop, there's no platform difference at all. Once you open Lightroom, you're running Adobe. Whether you use a Mac or Windows, Photoshop wants lots of ...
  • The OP was asking about putting a DX 10-20 on an FX Nikon. While the lens won't cover the entire FX frame, it will put a very wide angle image on the reduced area that it does cover. It will, in ...
  • When I got my first DSLR, it took me 6 months to get used to it. It just kept doing stuff I didn't expect. I eventually was able to tame it but it's still nowhere near as simple to use as my Nikon ...
  • Mine did that too. It came with Auto-area AF on. You need to press the AF mode button (the one in the AF-manual switch) and then turn the front control dial until something other than "Aut" shows ...
  • Good choice. Nothing less useful than a DOF preview button on a clear-screened SLR.
  • Yes, I voted. I use back button focus all the time. When I first switched to it, I took a lot of out-of-focus pictures (especially when I was using a wide-angle lens) until I became used to ...
  • I can't imagine using back button focus some of the time. Either you use it or you don't. If you keep changing how you take pictures, you're going to forget to focus sometimes.
  • I primarily use the 85mm for portraits, which it's pretty good for. I have a 105mm f/2.5 AI-S, which I like much better except that it's manual focus; it's hard to get focus right with it. I'm ...
  • In the range of the 50mm and 35mm primes, a 16-85. Now I also have an 85mm f/1.8G and that beats the 16-85 silly for sharpness since the zoom is weak at full tele. I use the 85mm quite a bit.
  • Well, there's manual focus and autofocus. Your camera can use manual focus AI, AI-S, or series E lenses. It can also use even older manual focus lenses if they're converted to AI; old unconverted ...
