  • If you haven't bent the arms supporting the screen!
  • Hi - When in “Auto ISO” hitting the ISO button will allow you to cycle on/off for “Auto ISO” with the front command dial. That change will stay in effect until you turn off the camera, or you ...
  • Hi Dirty - Not one of your "must haves" is important to me.  What I want is extreme ruggedness, weather sealing, long battery life, and superb Nikon images.  Have you ever seen how PJ's (news, ...
  • Try setting "picture Control" (under menu > Photo Shooting Menu) to Standard. This setting effects both the JPGs and EVF/back screen rendering. You may have it set to Vivid. Stay Safe - Dan
  • IMO You’re blaming Nikon because you don’t know how to use your Z5. For exposure compensation, I’m familiar with the operation of the Z7 and Z7ii. With those cameras you hit the the”+/-“ button to ...
  • You probably should buy a third party manual for the Z5.  One that will show you how to do things.  How to set up the camera.  When to use which settings.  In the meantime set the camera to all ...

    Wrong, wrong, wrong!  You obviously haven't attempted to remove an XQD card from a Z7ii.  That's something Nikon did wrong.
  • The usual ill-conceived, meaningless testing.  The wide open output of the Z is spectacular - center to corner.  That's what counts, not some bloggers attempt at getting eyeballs.
  • Jim, I'll take all the DR I can get.  How much do I need? Minimum about 12 stops. Most of the camera "tests" I see are jokes.  IMO they only measure quantifiable parameters, like DR.  They don't ...
  • Instead of going the DX route, why not get a 24-200.  Combined with your 6 or 7 a one lens kit is probably smaller than a Z50 with two lenses.  I've nothing against the Z50, a fine body and the ...
  • Do you think your pics will improve with such a switch?
  • Replied in In conclusion
    So, we're all in agreement.  Nikon banding is a non-issue, except for those photographers who totally blow their exposure and don't have the good sense to throw their mistakes away.  And, of ...
  • You're not being screwed by Nikon.  The Nikon batteries work longer, last longer, and work with all present and future Nikon equipment.  The third party batteries are inferior in all those areas ...
  • That’s precisely the point! Nikon and Canon say that the flange diameter makes a difference (not the whole difference.) But, the doomsters (now quiet about Nikon going bust), the naysayers, the ...

    Jim – you’re invoking your usual technical miasma. The output (not some meaningless test) of all the Z-S lenses I own, are spectacularly better than the F lenses they’re replacing. Nikon says the ...
  • All good points.  Additionally, the Z lens show much less astigmatism and much higher contrast.
  • Jim - We're talking THIS post, not some general condition. You're making a straight forward answer to a question way too complex. Reread my original post on this topic. If you claim that only ...
  • It is quantitative based solely upon qualitative judgements.  That really makes it qualitative, wouldn't you say? Yes Jim it is. Someone who didn't care about info in zones 1 & 2 and zones 9&10, ...
  • Replied in Histograms
    Actually your wrong.  I'm talking in general, an incident reading, taken at the subject, is more accurate than a reflective reading taken at the camera.  In theory, for difficult lighting, a spot ...
  • Perhaps not applicable to snapshots, but certainly applicable to showing info in the shadows and highlights. You know, the very basic PRINCIPLE of the zone system! Perhaps that’s not important to you?
