  • Quality images above 12,800? i would say you need a D5.
  • Bill, I got the 200-500 when Nikon recently offered the $200 rebate. I still have time to return it but my shooting experience with the lens so far makes it very hard to justify doing so. I can get ...
  • Bill, that is correct, I do not have the 500 and at this point I do not want one. I took a five mile walk today with the 200-500, and for a while I limited myself to 500 mm, and that was not very ...
  • Thanks Bill, I agree. i am getting ready to order a Lowepro case and a B&W filter. i haven’t had this much fun with a zoom since I purchased my first 70-200.
  • I recently purchased the 200-500 and I still have a couple of more weeks to decide if I am going to keep it or not. All I can say is that so far the lens has been spectacular- looks like I got a ...
  • Ok, I think I’m starting to get the hang of this... most of my problems were created due to the number of photos I was importing at once as I am new to Lightroom. I am beginning to understand how ...
  • That is what I am concerned about... i just don’t want previews eating up a lot of hard drive space. if you have the program “delete” previews regularly, then I assume when you reaccess that folder ...
  • Your Lightroom Catalog Previews folder must be huge... How many GB's does it take up on your hard drive if you don't mind my asking? I would like to have one catalog and keep it on my laptop, but ...
  • Created discussion thread Lightroom Catalogs
    How many of you create different catalogs, say one for each year? How many of you keep your catalogs on an external hard drive that contains the photos linked to the catalog? Say you have an ...
  • Thanks, I’ll need to look into that   - it sounds like that is probably the problem.
  • Yes, that is reasonable, but the *.Irdata Catalogs are not. Even when I detached one of my larger folders from the Lightroom Catalog the folder size did not change. Is anyone else having this problem?
  • My "Catalog" as it shows on the left side of the screen in Lightroom has 30079 images, basically 30,000 images. My images are all being accessed from an external hard drive. I have used "Import" ...
  • That sounds like a good idea, but doesn’t it make your catalogue get really large and take up a lot of space in your desktop?
  • Thanks. I believe I see how to do that. Edit/ Preferences/ i keep all My photos on external hard drives. I have noticed that when you add photos to the catalog it really eats up hard drive space. ...
  • I decided to get on the monthly plan with Lightroom and Photoshop. I have been pleased with the results so far but it has taken me a decent amount of time to learn how to maneuver around ...
  • I must admit, I do like using the presets. DXO seems to have a better selection. Is that true or am I missing sonething? Many of the “Auto” adjustments on DXO seem to “over-cook” if you know what ...
  • Thanks, I believe that is what I’m going to do. I have DXO and I used Lightroom a coupe of years ago. I think I will use a trial version of it too and make a decision.
  • Thanks! I really appreciate your help. one final question... what is most cost effective way to get it? I would like to get through 500PX. Do you know if any rebates? Thanks!!!
  • Do you use Captire NX-D at all? Like for RAW edits?
  • Thanks. Does PS have similar lens correction?
