The exposure compensation button on the top right of the body has become stuck in the down position so now the camera is in a continuous waiting for a setting change. I'm happy with the 800E and planned on replacing it at some point maybe with the 850 a few months after it ships and keeping the D800E as a backup. I still have an older spare body but nothing close to 36mp so I have a decision to make. Do I find a used 800E on EBay or do a get a crop Nikon D500 Any idea about Nikon factory...

Hey boys & girls, brand new D500 owner 2 weeks now. Bought this guy for action, wildlife and anything else that moves. My plan was to attach my 80-400 newest edition to this crop sensor and have the perfect wild life set up.The lens was & still is  used on a D800E for how ever many years that camera has been out. My problem is the D500 won't lock on to anything for focus past about 100 ft.I have been shooting for a long time so I kinda know what I'm doing. Don't seem to ever had this problem...

Would be interested in hearing the views/opinions of others regarding which of my two camera bodies I should use with a new lens I recently purchased.  I was able to get a Nikkor 300mm f/2.8 AF-S DII used lens at a very good price.  Included in the deal was the Nikon 1.4 teleconverter. This lens will supplement my Tamron 150-600 mm lens that was my primary wildlife lens.  My question:  when in the field, would I be better served having this Nikkor lens on my D7100 body, with the Tamron on my...

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 hope I can explain this scenario where it makes sense in order for some answers. I have a Nikon D800e + Nikon SB 910 + Godox X1T-N + Godox X1R-N. When I use high speed sync for an exposure, I have no issues with the flash or camera, everything works as designed. However, when I use my D300 + Nikon SB 910 + Godox X1T + Godox X1R-N, my camera is catching the rear curtain, high speed sync isn't working as it should be. I've checked the camera's e1 menu and it is set at 1/250 (Auto FP) for high...

Yesterday unpacked some Nikon lenses from winter storage that have black rubber focusing and zoom rings like the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8G ED Lens.I pack these into individual canvas lens cases like those made by  Tamrac.  Into each, I throw in a silica dry pack. With two of my Nikkors, I found a white chalky layer on nearly the entire black rubber focusing and zoom rings.  The silica pack was nearly dry.  I suspect the dryness oxidized the rubber to the point of changing into this...

I find that the number of perceptual megapixels DXOMark says the D800 provides with any given lens is suspiciously low. For example, they say that the Tamron 15-30 provides 24 P-MP on the D800E, but only 15 on the D800. Is it possible that the OLPF cancellation provides this much extra detail? However, they also say that the D610 provides 1 MORE megapixel of detail than the D800 with the same 15-30 lens. I find that hard to believe. Are they just plain wrong, or am I missing something?

Hi all, I am having an issue using my D800E with the WR-A10 remote adapter set attached. It occasionally fires two shots in a row when only one push is given on the wireless remote. estimate it happens once every 10 times. The camera is in single shot mode (S). It only happens when utilizing the WR-A10. I I have switched out batteries and no change in behavior. When I have a pocket wizard attached to the hotshot, the "double shot" from the remote over powers my dynalites and the throws the...

I wasn't able to move to Sony system because I couldn't find a compact/fast 35mm lens for FF E-mount i.e. A7r. 35mm and 85mm are the most import focal lens for me. Before moving, I always examine the options in the system. Sony's own 35mm F2.8 would be a fantastic choice if its an F2 or F1.8.  Weight is very important for me, since otherwise I would stick with my Nikon D800e.  What are my choices for 35mm and 85mm fast compact primes ?

Hello everyone, Hope you are well. I want to get the Fuji GFX 50s, but there are some things that I need to clarify. I'd appreciate if someone can advise me on those. 1. Memory card support: Since SanDisk 512GB Extreme Pro SDXC cards came out, I've bought one and started using it. And then slowly I bought more and now I have 6 x 512GB Extreme Pro SDXC cards. I've used them on many cameras for example: Nikon D800E, D810, Sony RX100 M2, M4, Pentax K-3, K-1, Sigma DP2 Quattro, SD Quattro. But...
