  • Well the pixel grip is still in constant use and so far no issues with cracks or problems arising with using an R strap. Having said that the largest lens I use it with is the f2.8 24-70mm. I had ...
  • Surely that is part of the equation but let's ignore it then. Speed of the focusing motors in the lenses. Some of the earlier Fuji X-mount lenses in particular don't have the fastest motors. Others ...
  • You didn't then go on to read the edit where I changed the wording to above rather than below in the above paragraph you copied. I had to do in a second post because my first post had been replied to.
  • [Edit] I  meant to type ' The lowest ISO your camera can do is not the base ISO but one stop above that'.
  • These are also excellent points and some of which I missed so please I hope you don't mind if I add to the points you made above now I have more time to reply. Filters can have their uses but it's ...
  • Not really. My son uses a D3300 for his underground exploration photos with an older kit lens than yours and he does pretty well with it. The kit lenses are fairly good lenses regardless of how ...
  • I agree something nearer 1/60s second would have been better and maybe spot or  Center weighted metering set to large (if the D3300 has that) rather than Matrix metering may have helped. Sometimes ...

    In this instance no. I did the comparisons as a side by side test. Same camera settings and same development settings. What I can't remember off the top of my head was whether I had lens ...
  • Thank you so much for this Anthony. This for me not being a FastStone user is the missing link and an excellent explanation to most of the problems we are seeing here. That's settled then. Download ...
  • First I can't see any evidence of signal noise in the area you are showing but there is a sharpening problem. RAW editors often remember the last adjustments you made when you close the file even ...

    Yup. It definitely looks that way with the prime but hard to tell from a visual inspection of the 24-70mm but I'm sure you are right. There are just so many variables with optics and electronics ...
  • This is why I'm puzzled and wondered about the reasons for the under exposure and post processing. I'm not familiar with Faststone so don't know if it would replicate the cameras instruction set ...
  • These were taken for the museums archive before the gallery opened for public viewing and they wanted the best possible images I could give them. Hence the glass doors were opened for me. I spent ...

    Thanks. It sort of helps but I also wondered about the sizes of the front elements with the 50mm being a lot smaller diameter than that of the 24-70mm. So I assumed as the 24-70mm had a larger ...
  • Are you using an old manual lens? What software did you use to turn this into a jpg? It's curious because it looks very underexposed but there is no extreme brightness or shadow in the histogram ...

    I admit to reading the said original thread with dismay and a fare amount of head banging on my desk but you sadly can't change a persons mind with logic or correct reasoning or the argument ...
  • I've used the Pixel grip on a tripod stand using the 24-70mm Nikkor. As I use a remote I'm not fussed about any slight grip movement of which you really have to twist the grip on the body to feel ...
  • Is your Nikon 10-24mm the new AFP lens? Any photos? I'm interested in that one for both video and wider angled shots as I do need an affordable wider angled lens. I can't get close enough to those ...
  • Replied in D510 rumors
    What was the period between the Release of the D300 and D500? I wouldn't hold your breath unless Canon release something that knocks the D500 into a cocked hat. Even then it may take some time.
