  • Replied in Nikon newby..
    I rented a Tamron 100-400 for a trip to Alaska recently. I'd never used 3rd party glass before but came away VERY impressed. For 400mm it's really lightweight (lighter than my 80-200 2.8) and ...
  • I can't see anything besides the sensor that makes it really any better than the GX85. Compared to the GX85: - Basically the same EVF tech with tearing - Same lack of weather sealing - Same ...
  • Replied in GX85
    That's pretty sweet since it's still lossless.  I hate digital zooms, but I like the idea since it's just picking different pixels to use to "zoom" in.  Very cool, and features like that are kind ...
  • How do you like the combo coming from the D750?
  • Replied in GX85
    Exactly... PLUS with the G85 I'd get great stabilized 4k video and "decent" auto focus in video which I totally lack now. The positives on the 100-400 is that I could use it on the D3200 for ...
  • Replied in GX85
    Thanks - I did look at the GX85, but the EVF color tearing bit was very noticeable to me and I ruled it out. I did like the EM10ii EFV and G7. I couldn't find a G85 to try. This is kinda the size ...
  • You're being too kind - the Nikon video AF is WORSE than nothing.  I gave up on it and only MF. :-) Also checked out your video, believe it or not before starting this thread. It seems like the G85 ...
  • Replied in I'd wait ...
    That's a really good point - it'd be great to not have to worry about another system if Nikon is going to release something that's hopefully very compatible already.  A feature rich mirrorless ...
  • Well... couple reasons, but I get your point. 1) Video AF doesn't work on the Nikon DSLR's, it's pretty good on the J1, but without IBIS it's a bit shaky. 2) I do need to get more reach (600 ...
  • Hey guys, I'd asked a question a while back in the system advice forum.  I've currently got a D3200, D750, and Nikon  J1.  I really don't use the J1 as I find it too limiting, and it's mostly for ...
  • Replied in Nah...
    EXACTLY. Someone got the task to build the updater and this was probably the cheapest and fastest.
  • Why not just focus stack in post? I think there are videos on how to do it using gimp.
  • Fast prime lens, stopped down minimally if any, slowest shutter possible while still being sharp, consider a gelled flash with lower power (maybe ttl), and crank the ISO up. Then just balance it ...
  • Replied in Yes....
    Funny you mention this. I made me remember some fun shots at the beach with my daughter. Turns out hss did over power the sun by a good margin in some that I took. Its a "weird" look for sure. I ...
  • EXACTLY. :-)
  • Looks like the OP is shooting indoors though.
  • Yep, exactly, and typically the sync speed combined with flash will freeze things nicely. I’ve got some fun pics of my daughter from when she was two jumping in the air with flash set at sync ...
  • Depends entirely on the workflow.  RAW adds zero extra processing time in my workflow with Lightroom.  I'd import to Lightroom via the same exact process and everything if they were JPEG's.  The ...
  • All the OP needs to know is that it pulses and reduces the strength of the flash in exchange for being able to use flash with a higher shutter speed. They also should realize for the type of ...
  • The OP has an A7.  He / she won't be able to glue a leaf shutter on it instead.  It's pointless what a leaf shutter can / cannot do.  The OP just needs to know how to make their camera work ...
