Hey guys, First post: I am looking into buying a D810. I can afford to go buy it now, but there appears to be a strong rumour that the replacement is to be announced on the 25th of July at the 100th anniversary for Nikon. I can wait until then, though I do have a more time sensitive shoot this weekend that I can do with my old camera if I have to. How much did the D800/D800E drop when the D810 was announced? Was the drop as soon as the camera was announced, or did it happen when it was...
I am a beginner in the Fujifilm world (long time Nikon shooter) and found something really wierd on the pictures. It has strange patterns all over. It is like it was oversharpening or something similar (attached). I tested the same scene w/ a Nikon D800 and it does not have these strange artifacts. Can someone tell me what are these? I have tried both RAW setting and also JPEG but nothing has changed. Thank you!
About two months ago I uploaded Light Room 5. (I had been using Capture NX-D and PSE 12 and Photomatix Pro 5 for editing.) To check the shutter count on my D800, I have tried to use a couple of the programs that do this and they tell me that my camera is not providing the information. It seems that since I uploaded LR, that this has occurred since previous to that I have successfully gotten the information. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in advance for your help. --"The real voyage of...
Anyone replaced their 70-200 f4 with a 85 f1.8 for travelling? Any limitations, would you do it again, etc.? I use a 16-35 on a D800 body >90% of my shots, so thinking of replacing the 70-200 f4 with something lighter. Most of my shots are landscapes, cityscapes, architecture. No people shots. Sometimes I need that reach across the lake or to isolate a temple, for example, so a tele is useful. What do you think?
Had my Pro 100 for about two months now, no issues that I can see. Love it. I'm now using RR paper, and Precision ink. All of my prints have been great. I print from Lightroom using the RR ICC profiles 100% of the time. Here's my problem. And I swear this just started happening. It took me a couple of hours to narrow this all down. When I print a JPG, its perfect. (I scan a lot of artwork for a friend and make prints on matte... they are flawless) When I print a RAW file, *sometimes*...
I've had this problem for years with both the D200 I used to have and my D700 I've had for over 5 years. I shoot motorsports, primarily at night. Some cars have reflective decals on them. Some come out okay, most come out underexposed. I have asked around for years and never can get an answer that works. So I'm bringing my question here. What setting(s) affects this? As you can see in the samples below, the first is with reflective that is underexposed and the second has no reflective. The...
I am keeping my eyes open for these two model as my upgrade on my RX100M4. I am getting into video more and more and want to have a more solid video camera than the RX100M4, which I love, but it has its limitation because it is still a compact. I have been a life long Nikon shooter and I am still using the D800 for my still photo. I think I have enough assets here to switch to a good Sony system if I unload all my Nikon gears as well. That means I will be using the Sony 7? for m still photos...
Just wondering if anyone has had any issues with the combination of D800 with 70-200 2.8 when using any of the focus points that are NOT the centre one. I've double checked fine tune, Centre point has spot-on accuracy, move focus selector to one (any) of the outer focus points and the focal plane moves backwards, away from the camera. So If a model is slightly side on and I focus on the closest eye, wide open aperture, the furthest eye ends up perfectly in focus and the closest isn't. If I...
I posted this question on the Beginners Questions forum, but it was suggested I post it here as well. On my D800 photos, I will sometimes get a vertical bar of flare above and below very bright highlights, such as the sun's reflection off a shiny, convex surface. Vertical flare on reflection of sun off car window These aren't weird sunstars, since it happens when shooting wide open. Here is another example, produced under more-controlled circumstances: Vertical flare from flashlight in the...
