I once had the center thumb button on the D300 programmed to show the focus square blown up to 100% (or actual pixels?). This was very convenient for a quick check on whether I had nailed the focus. I have lost this when I had to reset to factory settings, and I can't figure out now how to do this. Can someone tell me?

Hello, I have just started to photograph at rowing events and am wanting to get a good zoom lens. I borrowed a Sigma (nikon fit) 50-500mm f/4.5-6.3 APO DG OS HSM using it with my Nikon D300 on a tripod but it was taking a very long time to focus so much so that the rowers had already been and gone so none of my images were in focus. But when using my old (now broken) Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR lens It worked fine and their would only be the odd one that was blurry.  Can...

I own a Nikon 50 1.4 ai and a 105 2.5 ai which I shot some pics with my cousins D300 and I was impressed with the ease of focusing. It was as good as a manual film body. The metering was spot on. I want to know if it will be the same with the D5300. Thanks in advance.

I'm getting ready to move from a Nikon D300 to a Sony a7II. Being new to mirrorless, plus full frame, I still have some confusion regarding lenses, adapter, etc. I have the Lensbaby Composer Pro Double Glass for my Nikon D300. Can I use this with an adapter on the Sony a7II? If so, which adapter? Thanks! Rick in Spokane

Question: How do the Samyang lenses compare to other brands? I'm going to purchase my 1st mirrorless in a few months, a Sony A7II. After much research, the area of confusion for me are which lenses to consider. Currently using a Nikon D300, shoot in manual mode, RAW, and focus on: Landscape, Marco, Nightscape, & Long Exposure. I use the following lenses in order of use: 18-200mm, 12-18mm, 90mm macro, & Lensbaby Composer. I'll have no legacy lenses. I do some printing (11x14 up to 20x24), but...

I have been a long time Nikon camera user, going back to the N8008/N90s, and then the digital D100/200/300 bodies.  Currently - and for many years - the D300 has been my main camera body and it has served me well.  It has it's noise problems in low light (tough photographing Prothonotary warblers in the Francis Beidler Forest) so now that a true successor to D300 is here, I am definitely planning on buying one later this year, but I have a question or two about the grip/battery/charger for...

Hi D500 user(s) Ok, I had previous models D1h, D100, D200 (sold out) D300 and D750 - all I can see AF Illumination Points red glow. but I don't see on D500?? I tried look at whole MENU I don't see where is AF Illumination Point ??? Anyone know? Also, I noticed inside viewfinder display was very very low or dim not as like as D750's viewfinder display bright. Is there adjust bright for viewfinder display?? Thanks, Kenny Jr

Tell me will the Electronic Range Finder show on the live view flip screen like it will in the viewfinder when you're trying to manually focus the 5300? I'm not wanting to shoot sports anymore or document events so it's not important to have quick focus or uninterrupted shots.I have good glass but they're older. The only AF-S lens I own is the AF-S 17 - 35. The rest of my lenses are AF. I wouldn't mind buying a AF-S 50mm but I'd had to start reacquiring good glass lens at my age. I've viewed...

I have not been able to get the quality I expect for years. I figured the problem was me (camera shake) and as a result I have done less and less photography, hardly picking up the camera for 5 years. Earlier this week the weather was too good to resist taking the camera. I shot 30 frames and while annoyed with myself for being so out of practice at framing and composing, it was the 'mush' that really got to me and wish I'd never taken it. Below are JPEG conversions done in Lightroom CC, ACR...

Anyone using a Sony a6300/a6000 and Sony a7II with adapted lenses. I have quite a few lenses from various manufacturers and same with adapters. Just sold my son's D5100 and D300 so he needs a new small camera. He also has some good Nikon Dx lenses (12-24 f4G) and 16-85vr. Any noticable difference in AF/MF in the APC and full frame bodies? Cannot afford a Sony a7SII or a7RII and he wants smaller than D500 (he has a D7100) . Fuji is not supported in India. Posted here since he would only be...
