  • I came across dpr a couple of weeks after it went live and finally signed up in August 1999. Personally I think the site is well past its best and seems  now to be on a par with UK tabloid ...
  • I used to use Silkypix when we used Pentax cameras, but since we switched to Nikon we've always used Nikon's own software, basically VNX2 and Capture NX2. Although we own Affinity Photo, Photoshop ...
  • Replied in Waterproof?
    That is simply the result of poor material selection and manufacture. Thermoplast materials such a Polythene can be moulded simply by the application of heat. Thermoset materials are cured, often ...
  • Knowing the serial number , on the whole, tells you nothing about whether and item is a grey import or not. We currently have 12 bodies and 36 lens and converters registered with Nikon UK. They ...
  • You must have had a bad one, my wife used one in the 80s and on a 16"x20" print it was just as sharp as my 500mm f4. One of the best sports pictures I've ever seen was taken by the picture editor ...
  • Replied in Waterproof?
    Send it back to Lowepro. One of our backpacks started to fail after several years and it was replaced without question, particularly when I told them why it had failed. Natural rubber will always ...
  • I think not , you've obviously never been in a commercial studio :-)
  • Here in the UK we got rusty locomotives out of our system 40 years ago. train graveyard wales Dave
  • It's just one of the items in the drop down menu. Dave.
  • That is correct, all nikon cameras activate VR in this way and it stabilises the viewfinder, but this is not the VR that is applied for the shot because at this point the VR module could well be ...
  • I use back button focus with AF-C on all our cameras and this is one area where the V3 scores over  the  other 1 series cameras, but we have to accept that there are times where technology is not ...
  • :-)  yes. I think you expressed what I meant more effectively Dave
  • Hi Jack Yes, it wouldn't happen with the VR switched off but you would have to be using a tripod. I doubt that with the VR off anyone, unless they were an Olympic small bore target shooting ...
  • - either the actual AF area is not the one which is showed by the software Absolutely correct it isn't The OP used a VR lens with AF-S. The AF point, as far as the imaging software is concerned, is ...
  • Back focusing occurs with DSLRs where there is a distance (computational or physical) error between the AF module in the base of the mirror box and the sensor plane. The 1 series use on sensor PDAF ...
  • Really! The D3400 uses Nikon's multicam 1000 AF module with 11 AF point , first used in the Nikon D200 over 12 years ago. Hardly cutting edge technology Nikon V3 uses 105 point on sensor PDAF ...
  • I've given up arguing with you, its pointless , but for other peoples benefit I have done a quick test on the V3, taking 40 shots at 30 frames sec. The V3 buffer holds 40 raw files, the average ...
  • Look at my previous post the pictures are there. You clearly are a couple of sandwiches short of a picnic when it come to applied digital processing , you are just digging a bigger hole to climb ...
  • It always pays to do a little research before making a fool of yourself :-) Here are a couple full size files of mine that I use for demonstration in our lectures. I took forty-two raw frames (a ...
  • Not only are you arrogant you are also completely wrong. The process we are discussing is used extensively in acoustics , radar, sonar and medical ultrasound. In Signal Processing circles the ...
