I am planning to photograph the total eclipse in August. Even with appropriate filters on my 600mm lens, I'm concerned about looking through the lens or on the screen because I would be relying on the camera body to shadow the sun from my eyes. A tilt screen would help but I have the D800. Is it possible to tether the camera to a portable device. I would not be using the device to focus just to align. I am assuming that focusing on a distant mountain with F 8-11 setting would have the sun in...

I have finally given up on my Nikon GPS for my D800. Now the battery has died, besides the often very long time to get a fix. Have looked on a few apps for iOS to capture the track for later add of the gps position to the pictures (RAW or JPEG), but the ones I found needed LightRoom, which I don't have. Any suggestions for well working apps, where it is possible to automatically add the positions to a large number of pictures (on MAC or PC), have both? br Lars

So I bought the 3 piece set from yongnuo to use with my D800 and D810. The D800 has no issues whatsoever, however the problem comes when I want to use it with the D810. The 622TX does work. However whenever I just want to use the transceivers nothing seems to work at all. The flash does not fire from the hot shoe I really don't know why.

OK, lens question. I'm going to be traveling in a couple of weeks, and I'm going to be doing some serious landscape photography while I'm out there. My primary body is a D800, and I have a Tamron 24-70 f2.8 which I use for most mid-range things when I don't want to switch to primes (which I feel like I won't while hiking about, generally). I want to get a longer-range zoom as well, and will likely rent one off of LensRentals. But which one? I'm looking at the Nikon 70-200 f2/8 VR II and the...

Hi! I realize this is "yet another" this-camera vs that-camera thread.. But none of the ones out there (that I've found) seem to speak precisely to my situation. I apologize if this should've been posted to the general advice forum, but I wanted to make sure to get advice from Nikon FX folks. My current gear: D7000 18-55 DX kit lens 50mm 1.8D 28mm 2.8 manual focus And, anticipating my coming FX purchase, I recently ordered the 18-35 G. I have wanted an FX camera for years.... I once went to a...

Recently i have purchased a USED Nikon D800, Nikon 300mm F4 AF-S + TC 1.4 ii and I am practicing Birds in flight every weekend near my house which has a nice marsh land. Currently, I am only practicing using a Single point focus and trying my best to focus on the bird's eye as far as possible and I am getting decent results i.e., 1 out of 20. I am also trying various settings on Aperture/Shutter and ISO to have descent sharpness/freeze - learning.. Now my question - Would a 51 or 21 or 9...

I need some input please on a camera for my wife. My wife is thinking of getting a small camera for travel and take-with-her-everywhere use. She currently shoots a D800 with 24-120mm f4 lens, which is quite bulky and heavy to lug around (and she refuses to remove the battery grip!), and she has been eyeing my much smaller and lighter X-T1 and m43 gear that I use for travelling. On our last trip she used my X-T1 + 18-55 and quite enjoyed the EVF with WYSIWYG feature, as well as the smaller...

I set the function button to BKT, but this seems to have no effect. I still need to do everything with the dedicated BKT button on the top of the camera.  Any ideas? I want to be able to shoot a braketted shot on the fly.
