  • Mostly this "cant grow into" feeling sets in when you gave used your camera reasonable well, explored its capabilities and then you want to do something extra that is not a setting or a feature of ...
  • Do this: Set up your camera on a tripo, set the widest aperture, manual focus using live view magnification. Check pics and compare with PDAF.
  • Commented on photo Fire and Ice in Nevada in the Steam Train challenge

    Nice photo, but why does the steam look photoshopped? There is something about the pic that feels weird but I am just not able to pin point it. The last wagon also looks too small even though its...

  • Nope. Technically there is no WB correction in jpeg, is an accurate statement. Adobe calls it as such for ease of use as it gives similar but not the same results. Its obvious given a more ...
  • That was a good example. I use Nikon View NX-i for WB and exposure correction and it only allows that for RAW images.
  • Real estate shots do need to show whats outside as well. It gives a sense of place/location. A nice fence/tree/wall/mountain/forest/lake/patio/ocean adds a lot to the value. If I cannot show such ...
  • I am almost never able to get the WB and exposure correct while shooting. Also, I end up having to lift shadows a lot, which I think RAW is better suited for. I would really like to shoot jpgs ...
  • There isnt a lot of difference between the D750 and D7500 weight. I would definitely recommend going for the FF. You can pair it up with the 24-85 VR for general purpose and travel photography. It ...
  • I am more familiar with the Nikon system. And my recommendation is go for the D3500 kit. The 70-300 AF-P lens is far superior to the 55-200 you get in the other Nikon kit. Also, while the d5XXX is ...
  • IMO, if under warranty, Nikon will pay for shipping. And this is the least time consuming way. I recently was testing my camera with a couple of lenses. First problem I faced was no natural light ...
  • Manufactures will try to create demand where none exists and throw any garbage till something sticks and takes off. 3d camcomders, 3d TVs were a thing till recently. Curved TVs are almost gone I ...
  • I agree with the technical benefits of the A73, Canon etc, but I am not sure I would be interested in taking so much pain for shooting casual stuff. I definitely enjoy video shot with a better ...
  • Nope. All networks are optimized for faster downloads and they always advertise the download speeds. It will be a nightmare to upload a 4k video in a lossless format. 4k makes sense while viewing a ...
  • Like you mentioned, the biggest problem with high resolution video is the file size. Video data is just too dense and will bog down even the best home computers. It makes no sense to shoot ...
  • My 50mm F 1.8 backfocuses quite a bit. If I use AF tune, it is good for subjects till approx 200 feet. After that it seems the AF-tune gets in the way as distant subjects are sharper without the ...
  • If the camera is still under warranty you should send it to Nikon. Generally, if you end up using AF tune, there is a possibility that the some lenses which you might buy in future will not ...
  • How does sensor glass even get scratched? It is hardened glass if i am not wrong and even a dirty swab should not be able to scratch it. It takes a lot to scratch even regular glass.
  • As another poster mentioned, I see front-focus in almost all pics. I would send the camera and lenses to Nikon to get it calibrated. While AF-fine tune is a good short term solution, focus has to ...
  • It is not going to blow anything out of the water. Video is not really that popular and most people dont buy cameras for their video capabilities. Professional/enthusiast videographers might get ...
  • Cellphones have generally lowered the photographic expectations of people so much that even the second blurred shot you posted would be acceptable to many and will definitely be 'liked' or 'loved' ...
