About me:

I've shot just about everything, and am hungry for more!

  • This is hardly news. Since the 1960's, many pro Nikon shooters routinely eschew the high-priced "professional" F series and bought cheaper Nikkormats instead. When the F3 was king, plenty chose...

  • Who needs restaurants? Everybody has a kitchen at home!

  • And this strongly stated opinion is based on exactly what emperical evidence? Can you back up any of your assertions with any evidence at all?

  • For me it wasn't a switch, it was an addition. I picked the 500 for the high frame rate and better/faster AF.  When I want to shoot wide angle, I revert to one of my FF bodies.
  • Yeah, I probably have shot less than 500 jpgs in my entire life, and I have something like 375,000 delivered images in my Zenfolio client pages. I know I have had cameras that were never once set...

  • To me, there has always been something wonky with the D800 and D810 LCD panel. I find them to have a green cast, and IMHO, to be highly unreliable for judging image attributes compared to almost...

  • A recent thread on this forum suggests that the D750 does better in the ISO 800-range, but the gap closes as you go above that. My experience shooting 40+ weddings per year with both cameras bears...

  • I just shot a wedding yesterday with a D500 and a 64GB XQD card, and took a little more than 2000 frames without changing the battery. The secret to success is this: Look at the battery information ...
  • Yeah, I've basically decided to stop selling my old cameras, unless I hate them. Fairly often I have situations when I need to take a camera into a dangerous environment that could kill it. For...

  • I upgraded from two D700s to two D750s. The 750 is a lovely camera, but the meager grouping of AF points -- all too close to the center -- is a daily frustration. When I added a D500 to the kit I...

  • Bite the bullet and send it into NPS. For a couple hundred bucks or less they'll diligently go through the beast and find and repair the most minute issues, including putting new leather or...

  • Clearly you are either indifferent to, or unfamiliar with the lives of some of the world's greatest artists.

  • The D700 was/is a monster, and I used two of them professionally far longer than I expected too. I've used just about every Nikon digital made, and IMHO, the D500 is easily the greatest Nikon in...

  • You can't be serious. In these tumultuous times, photographers find themselves taking pictures where they can easily come in direct contact with police officers, many of whom have proven to be not...

  • How ironic that you're complaining about a software upgrade that provides support for among many other things, a Fuji camera that costs $6500 with lens over $2500. Total cost for the entire set of...

  • Nikon should focus its energies on getting bought out by Sony, who are in a position to maintain the venerable Nikon DSLR business.
