  • I'd like to chime in to say that I've had excellent experiences with Canon's refurbished equipment site. The people are very nice and helpful and the cameras are like new.
  • Replied in Alphabet soup
    I was using a very restrictive definition of "won't work". You can in fact take pictures with an AF-P lens on a D7200. Nikon lists the D7200 as "compatible with limited functions". But you do want ...
  • I'm not sure how large your samples are going to be. But it sounds similar to copying flat artwork. This is generally done with 2 lights at 45 degrees to the camera axis. There should be no hot ...
  • Replied in Alphabet soup
    There are a lot of 70-300 lenses and it's hard to tell them apart because they all have lots of letters in their names. The stabilized Tamron 70-300 f/4-5.6 Di VC USD will work on both cameras. I ...
  • Replied in To get pictures
    I take a good camera to the beach so I can get good pictures. I have used a D300 at the ocean for years and now I subject my D750 to the same conditions. Salt spray is a problem. I have relatively ...
  • The D500 has a flicker reduction feature to synchronize exposure with the light frequency. Did you use that?
  • Replied in Counting problem
    You're right. I was mixing up light loss with stops. You get 1/6 the light with a 3X teleconverter, which is about 3 stops.
  • Just to clarify, the D7200, having a smaller sensor than an FX Nikon, will have a smaller field of view with any specific lens than will an FX Nikon. Depends on what kind of pictures you want to ...
  • Does the round eyepiece do a better job of shielding out extraneous light? I often have a problem in bright sun and have to shade the eyepiece with my hand; this messes up my grip on the camera.
  • Replied in a TC problem !
    Well, I'm not completely sure what you're doing here but: You apparently have an adapter that allows you to use an M42 lens on a Nikon DSLR. These adapters need to contain optics to allow the lens ...
  • Yes. That's why I noted that the FZ1000 is similar in size to it as a disqualifying attribute.
  • A new 6D is more than that without a lens. So you're looking at used equipment. Probably heavily used if you're talking a complete kit. Purchasing used cameras takes some level of expertise in ...
  • I have an unsubstantiated guess: Nikon corrects for effective aperture. If you set f/11 on a macro lens and then start focusing in, the effective aperture changes. Presumably, the camera's little ...
  • Replied in Memo recording?
    What's memo recording? I have a D750 and can't find anything by that name in the manual.
  • Many of us here prefer Nikon because this is the Nikon FX SLR forum. I think my D750 is swell but you might get different answers on the Canon forums.
  • The FZ1000 is not a whole lot smaller than your Canon DSLR: http://camerasize.com/compare/#469,556
  • I have a 24-120. It has a gold ring. It is on the recommended lens list for the D850. It is not a particularly sharp lens. What's weirder is that the 16-80 DX lens is on the list. That can't be ...
  • Sure looks like it. No way to get rid of it; it's thermal damage to the color filter array or even the silicon itself.
  • Replied in Low light lens
    As you have seen, you can't shoot groups with a wide open lens because most of the group would be out of focus. Your options with groups are increasing ISO or adding more light. Adding more light ...
  • The camera is described in detail here: https://www.lsst.org/about/camera/features The building blocks of the detector are 16 megapixel CCD's with a 10 micron pixel pitch; each CCD is 40mm X 40mm. ...
