Hello everyone, I have not done much macro photography but the little I have done I really enjoy. I use a Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 VR and have noticed on occasion that I would like to get in a bit closer. I wasn't sure what (if any) the disadvantages or compromises would be in using extension tubes and which type and spec tube(s) to get. Any input you could give me would be most appreciated.  Thanks so much for your time and expertise. I shoot with a D3 and D300. best to you, Rick

Hello folks, I just bought this Nikon F/2 DC, but unable to decide if it has any issues. I am providing a link to the drop box with two images, If some of you could please have a look and let me know what I should be doing next, that will be greatly appriciated. The images are shot with D700, but if you like I can repeat the test with a D300 or I can borrow a friends D610. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/deq3kfs76ze1d5e/AADTrAvfWYZWkmdrbVEenltva?dl=0 Please let me know if you like it to be tested...

Finally starting to set up my D500 - Wow!  Many more options than my old D300 has!  Question concerning the SD card choice.  The deal I got when I bought my D500 included a 64GBSanDisk Extreme Pro SDXC UHS-1 card, with a speed of up to 95MB's/sec at no extra charge.  I had purchased 2 Lexar 64GB Pro 2933X cards for the XQD slot and the free SD card was going into the SD slot as the overflow card.  However, whenever I put the SD card into that slot, within a few seconds I get a blinking ERR...

I have been asked to take pictures at an occasion and will be using my flash. I have a Nikon D300 camera and an SB800 flash. I take mostly all nature pictures and seldom use a flash. My question is, I want the pictures to be good and sharp for the people I'm taking pictures for, so does anyone recommend the best settings to take pictures of small groups, say 10-15 ft away and also a large group picture standing 40 ft away. Any help would be appreciated.

Is there a way to lock the focus point position on a D3000.  On my D300 and D810 there is a lock around the multi-selector.  My nose keeps changing where the focus point is. Tthanks.

Okay - so I took advantage of Nikon's deal for the D500 plus grip at the reduced price and now that the holidays are over, I am going through the owner's manual and starting to set up the camera - far more complex than my previous D300 was but we'll get there.  My question though is on choosing a browser and post processing software.  I have always used Nikon View NX/NX2 for my browser with my D100, D200, and D300.  Hate to simply say that View was 'good enough", but it was good enough for my...

I would love to switch to a full frame camera like a D610.  I am currently using a D300.   The problem is that I don't want to spend the money to upgrade my lenses to FX.   Is there still a noticeable benefit in having a full frame camera if you use DX lenses on it?  My main reason for upgrading the camera is to shoot better in low light.

I am a long time user of a D300, but have grown frustrated with low light capabilities from a distance. I take low light photos primarily at church. At my former church I could get close to the action with the D300 during "rehearsals." At my current church I can't do that. I have to zoom in from the balcony or the side. I know that these types of low light photos are challenging with most cameras, but it is causing me to spend a lot of time cleaning up photos later on. I'm intrigued by the...

Hi, I'd like to start with astrophotography but before spending cash on new equipment, I'd like to know what you guys should suggest my lens to start with: On a Nikon D300 i have the choice between a Tokina 12-24 f4 and a nikkor 24mm 2.8 afd (Fx format so 36 mm on the d300)?

Just received the Wasabi EN-EL18 battery charger today (also marked MH-26 in one place on the box and LCH-DC-ENEL18 on a decal on another part of the box) and I have a question concerning it since there were no directions with the charger.  It seems straight forward enough - pretty much the same as the Nikon OEM charger I use to charge my Nikon EN-EL-4a battery for use in my D300 grip.  I inserted an OEM Nikon EN-EL18a battery into one of the two charging chambers and plugged the charger in....
